Exclusive Wings Recordings

While everyone, naturally, focuses on the work of Paul McCartney's first band - a hotly-tipped beat combo called The Beatles who we think will do well - it's only right that the rest of his sensational creative output gets the exposure it deserves.

And it's currently the time of his post-Beatles act Wings, as two of their albums - Venus and Mars, and At The Speed Of Sound - receive a welcome rerelease. Both records have been remastered and are available together with a host of bonus tracks, new photographs, track-by-track information, interviews and more. Two of McCartney's best 'hidden gem' tracks feature on these albums, in the form of Listen to What The Man Said, and Silly Love Songs.

We're delighted to be able to exclusively stream two tracks taken from these records. The first, Beware My Love is a straight-up barnstorming rock number taken from The Speed of Sound, while the second, Juniors Farm, was released as a single around the time of Venus and Mars, but not included on the album - it's now included as a bonus track for the first time on this rerelease.

We've also got a selection of great photographs which feature on the release - including the cover of At The Speed Of Sound, a fantastic image captured at the Leciester Square Theatre Lightbox in 1976 - the story of the image is told in the new liner notes. Check these out below - a snapshot of Paul's mid-70s maraca phase it seems.

At The Speed Of Sound (Amazon/iTunes) and Venus and Mars (Amazon/iTunes) are available to buy now
