At last on CD from the best available tape source, this is the "no baloney" version of Cold Cuts. Compiled by Paul, it collects the best of his unreleased music from the years 1971-78. The set presented here is the 1980 version, known by collectors as the "No Baloney" lineup, in reference to the cover artwork used on its unofficial vinyl release towards the end of 1986. Pegboy is proud to present this material from the best available source. Enjoy
Cold Cuts is probably the best known of the unissued McCartney projects. With a canon of unreleased music rivaled by few other artists, Paul required an outlet for this material. The original concept was the release of a two record set comprising a disc full of hits - Hot Hits, and a second disc of leftovers, B-sides and unreleased material - Kold Kutz. Over the years, three finished lineups of the unreleased material have surfaced, each stronger than its precursor. The first collection was compiled c. 1978 and ran roughly sixty minutes, gathering material from 1971 to the present. Due to record company pressure for product, this project was not completed, and Wings Greatest was sent to satisfy the Christmas market. Now known simply as Cold Cuts, the project was once again taken off the shelf following the Back To The Egg sessions. The Linda and Denny vocal spotlights were trimmed along with the instrumental material in favor of Paul's more commercial offerings. The final version to surface hails from the end of 1980 and consists of the same twelve tracks, albeit in a different sequence. It came about after Paul's self-imposed exile earlier in the year, when he pulled the remaining members of Wings together in October of 1980 to once again polish up the old tracks. A listen to these recordings begs the question "why weren't these released", as most of them are superior to their contemporary relatives. Unfortunately, in the wake of John Lennon's death, the project was shelved again. In late 1987, additional production work was undertaken at Air Studios in London, by Paul, co-producer Chris Thomas and engineer Bill Price. The mixes of 'Mama's Little Girl' and 'Same Time Next Year' which appeared on the 'Put It There' single in February 1990, are from these sessions.
01. A Love For You
Opening this collection we have A LOVE FOR YOU, which was recorded during the Ram sessions of early 1971. The version appearing here is the most complete of the four which have surfaced to date, all of which added subsequent overdubs to their respective predecessor. A great LP opener any way you look at it
02. My Carnival
MY CARNIVAL was recorded during the New Orleans Venus And Mars sessions which took place at Allen Toussaint's Sea Saint Studios in early 1975. Written in celebration of the Mardi Gras, and featuring a quest appearance by the Meters, it bears an uncanny resemblance to Professor Longhair's 'New Orleans', (a version of which was also put to tape during these sessions). An element of all three Cold Cuts line ups, it was steadily improved upon before being overproduced for commercial release as the B-side of 'Spies Like Us' in late 1985. The version on this release marks the first appearance of several overdubs, most noticeable being the "tack piano" and additional lead vocals.
Originating from the London Town era, WATERSPOUT, was scheduled to appear on Paul's All The Best greatest hits package in 1987, but was pulled in favor of the "all hits" concept. Once again, the version appearing on this collection is the most complete to surface. The main difference here is the addition of "The Plastic Mac's" horn section to the previous Cold Cuts incarnation.
04. Mama's Little Girl
MAMA'S LITTLE GIRL (nee MOMMA'S LITTLE GIRL) dates back to 1972 and nearly made it to the masses as part of the 1973 television spectacular James Paul McCartney, before being trimmed from the final lineup. She also kicked off the first Cold Cuts LP, but was bumped to second place by 'A Love For You' on round two. The mix appearing here features percussion and an alternative clarinet solo not heard on the original backing track. This version also differs from the 1987 McCartney/Thomas production. Although the musical elements are the same, this rendition features a dry mix, compared to the heavily reverbed commercial version.
05. Night Out
Originating from the Red Rose Speedway era, NIGHT OUT started as mostly an instrumental save for the "night out" chant and its accompanying scat vocal from Paul. It grew lyrics some time before being re-worked for Cold Cuts Mach II, and went under considerable overdubbing and remixing before appearing on this collection.
