Mull of Kintyre

Sortie : le 11 novembre 1976   Quand Paul renoue avec les records… Mull of Kintyre est le premier single à dépasser les 2 millions de copies vendues au UK, ce depuis She Loves You en 1963. Seul le « Do they know it’s Christmas » du Band Aid fera mieux en 1984, et Paul était présent sur la face B… Ce sera bien sûr le Number One de l’année. Les paroles évoquent le Kintyre, petite péninsule écossaise où Paul a une ferme depuis 1966.

McCartney explained how the song came into being: I certainly loved Scotland enough, so I came up with a song about where we were living; an area called Mull of Kintyre. It was a love song really, about how I enjoyed being there and imagining I was travelling away and wanting to get back there.

Maybe I’m Amazed (Live)

 

Sortie : le 4 février  1977

Extrait de l’album live Wings over America, Maybe I’m Amazed sort enfin en single et sert de promotion pour l’almum.

En face B, le rock « Soily », version live, un des titres de McCartney jamais enregistré en studio ou du moins paru en l’état.

 

McCartney wrote the song in 1969, just before the Beatles’ break-up. He credited his wife Linda with helping him get through the difficult time. Although most of his debut solo album was recorded at his farm in Scotland, McCartney recorded « Maybe I’m Amazed » entirely in EMI’s Number Two studio in Abbey Road in London. He played all the instruments: guitars, bass, piano, organ and drums. Although McCartney declined to release the song as a single in 1970, it nonetheless received a great deal of radio airplay worldwide, making it one of his most recognisable solo successes.
