‘BEST FRIEND (Live in Antwerp)’ – Newly mastered and never before released track
‘THE MESS (Live at The Hague)’ – Newly mastered B-side to ‘My Love’ – the #1 US hit single
Taken from the forthcoming reissue of Paul McCartney and Wings’ 1973 second album Red Rose Speedway
Today, to further mark the forthcoming reissues of Paul McCartney’s 11th and 12th classic works from his revered catalogue, two special live tracks have been made available as “instant grats”.
Newly mastered and never before released, ‘Best Friend’, a song many believed to be a message to John Lennon, comes as a live version recorded during the Wings European tour in 1972 at the Cine Roma in Antwerp, Belgium. The second offering comes in the form of ‘The Mess’, a live version recorded at The Hague, Netherlands, and that was the B-side to ‘My Love’ – the band’s #1 US hit single. Both tracks were omitted from the originally planned Red Rose Speedway double album, which now comes remastered in its full form, to be released December 7, 2018 via MPL/Capitol/UMe.
