“WINGSPAN”, A SPAM. ANTHOLOGY YET TO COME

The “Wingspan” compilation by Paul McCartney’s WINGS will be released on May 8. Macca told “Billboard” he had been working on some “funky” mixes for the double-CD set, which will be priced as one CD. The discs will be titled “Hits” and “History.” “Hits” will feature 19 tracks with “Band On The Run”, “Live And Let Die”, and “Silly Love Songs” among them. “History,” will have 22 tracks and include the album tracks “Tug Of War” and “Let Me Roll It” plus a new mix of “No More Lonely Nights”.

Strange situation, of course, as neither “Tug Of War” off the eponymous album from 1982 nor “No More Lonely Nights” from 1984’s “Give My Regards To Broadstreet”are WINGS’ tracks being Paul’s solo cuts.

As for real WINGS anthology that has been in the works for some years already, McCartney plans to release a boxed set towards the end of 2001 with rarities, outtakes and previously unreleased live tracks.

Regarding the rest of Hackett’s album making it onto high quality CDs, there are news of forthcoming Steve’s debut, “Voyage Of The Acolyte” re-release on “Camino”.
