Who's ready for some new Beatle music to greet 2019?
Honestly, the only truly new song is Macca's "Get Enough" which just dropped (as the kids say) yesterday. But Sir Paul also threw a couple of new freebies into his download bin to promote the Wild Life and Red Rose Speedway box sets. Unreleased alternate takes of "Dear Friend" and "Hands of Love". paulmccartney.com/downloads
This era of Wings is special to me because original drummer Denny Seiwell is from nearby Lehighton Pennsylvania. We hadn't had many famous natives since the Dorsey Brothers.
But wait there's more! George Harrison once made a voice-and-guitar demo of "Fear of Flying" by UK songwriter Charlie Dore. Never released but the BBC played a minute-long section that some enterprising musician has just subjected to the Anthology treatment, that is to say he fleshed the demo out to a full-length, full-band song. Quite tastefully in my opinion. Well done.
