    McCartney's Wings At The Speed Of Sound.

    It was a #1 album in the USA, probably on the strength of the two hits Silly Love Songs and Let 'Em In. But it has a few other solid tracks: Beware My Love, She's My Baby, and Must Do Something About It, written and and sung by Wings drummer Joe English.

    I like Wings At The Speed Of Sound very much, in fact it is my favourite McCartney Album. This is no early Sturm-und-Drang-Album... its virtues are more of the opposite. I like the cool, relaxed, but also dense arrangements, and I like the swing of tracks like Let Em In, Silly Love Songs and Wino Junco.

    Just finished listening to Paul McCartney's anonymous album Thrillington, recorded in 1971, and released in 1977 credited to Percy "Thrills" Thrillington. Although their were rumors that it might be a McCartney album, it wasn't until 1989 that Paul actually admitted to it.

    It's an instrumental album of all the tracks on the McCartney album Ram. I listened to the whole mostly big band and jazz album on YouTube.

    Listening to a bunch of "vocals only" Youtube songs; fascinating stuff, Boston's More Than A Feeling (for example) highlights what an amazing talent Brad Delp was, at least in the studio, dude could hit some stratospheric high notes & make it seem effortless. Conversely, Dep Leppard puts the spotlight on a singer who posesses scant little actual vocal talent and relies almost completely on production tricks and wall-of-sound vocal overdubbing. Alone, Joe Elliot sounds horrible.
    Fun stuff

    God, Brad Delp, just an anomaly of sheer brilliance, that guy. Not just the high notes either, I think he did the harmonies too, and his singing technique in general was great.

    I've been listening to a lot of Def Leppard lately. Can't say I agree with you on Joe, despite how lousy any isolated track might be. I don't like his lyrics, or much of their more recent songs, or lookin at Phil shirtless, but to say Joe has scant talent just plain isn't correct. Sometimes I feel compelled to defend musicians, because, sh!t, it's way harder than it looks, and fans can be mean critics. Joe Elliot sang some epic vocals man.

    One time I read about a famous musician (can't remember who though) sitting in on a Beatles session during the Pepper recordings and declared Lennon/McC as completely horrible singers. Maybe it was Quincy Jones, lol.
