The back cover may lull you into a false sense of security. Here, at least, is the standard tracklist for bootlegs of this show. And the bus photo is standard-issue McCartney goofiness, making it clear that going out on the road small-time with Wings at this point is Magical Mystery Tour Part Deux in the bandleader’s mind.
But open the case, and behold THIS tracklist!
We Know That
Fiper in the Body
Quick as Thought
Week to Send
Thought Back Down
Surprised and Hurt
Hurry Don’t Go
Hum It To Me
Oh, if only these discs really did contain unreleased Wings songs so titled. What I wouldn’t give to hear “Week To Send” or “Fiper In the Body.” (That last one is a “Girls School” type rocker, I feel sure.) “Surprised and Hurt” and “Unjustly Treated” could show McCartney in a Lennonesque mood, while “Radio Shop” and “Important Man” could be slice-of-life story songs.
I feel like emailing these titles to MPL and seeing if they inspire McCartney. I especially want to hear “Radio Shop.”
(I also love that the accurate tracklisting has “I would moon of Kentucky” rather than “Blue Moon of Kentucky.)
