    Saving the second disc ( throwing the new one in the garbage, and keeping the original album in my CD rack. Bought the 2CD set so disc 2 is a keeper.

    You are throwing it because of a glitch in 'Souvenir'?

    I don't see any other reason of doing it.

    Sorry, but it has never clicked for me. Three major chords, quite obvious melody... I don't see anything special.

    Paul's beige colored electric keyboard in one of the (3x5?) photos is a Wurlitzer 200A rather than a Fender Rhodes.

    Still, great video to see you honor the artwork for someone like me who couldn't afford the Collector's Edition thanks!

    Maybe Golden Earth Girl, kind of runs out of steam after a beautiful opening though

    Yep, me. That’s why I just went for a refund.
    That’s the debacle! Lol!

    It is common practice to have an "umbrella" name for all customer service messages in a modern company. "Chris" from Universal probably doesn't exist, just like "Sarah" from All employees sign their mails under the same "fake" name, instead of their real name.
    Not all the time, there are exceptions, but it's common practice.

    If Broad St gets an Archive release I'd love it if they could find a way to include the computer game that came out at the time, which was my introduction to the world of Paul McCartney when I won aca in a national newspaper competition!

    Another time where Paul seems to change his opinion to match the criticsa nd the charts. Driving Rain was pretty well promoted. It also had videos for Lonely Road, From a Lover to a Friend, Driving Rain (be it a remix) and Your Loving Flame. But similar to Back to the Egg, after the critics got a hold of it, suddenly he wasn't proud of it anymore.

    Your Loving Flaming is such a fantastic love song and should have been on Pure McCartney.

    Driving Rain got pretty good reviews. It's probably the low sales, relationship to Heather, and mixed fan reception that have diluted it in his mind.

    It has a Metacritic rating of 75/100, so I don't think it had anything to do with "the critics", and more to do with the fact that it represents a certain period in his life. He also ignored it on "The McCartney Years".

    There’s an official video for Driving Rain?

    This may be the remix he speaks of...
    Not sure if it's official.

    I think he meant the remix video that was part of the secret website back in the U.S. dvd

    I finally got around to the two DVDs included in the Flaming Pie box. I’m noticing music drop outs in several of the music videos. Beautiful Night, in The World Tonight, Young Boy and others
    Any one else?

    @Mazzy loved your video
    one of the most informed, level headed rational commentary I have read or seen on these box sets.
    Ive seen people try and break down the value of each peace of the box, but never take into consideration all the costs you bought up, licensing, art direction , all the different stages of people taking a cut, its limited nature etc etc it mounts up. Its the old adage if you think its silly over priced etc dont buy it, there are heaps of options and complexities for the individual. What you said about it being an archive of a time in his life is so spot on. Its more than just an album its a section of his life..

    Thanks for the video. As You have noted to the expense of making sets this nice, much further up thread, I mused that you must also take into the account of climbing prices on all of the different aspects of making these sets during Covid.

    Materials, labor, manufacturing and distribution as most businesses are working at partial staff all the way up and down the chain that would have driven up costs as well . Not an excuse or even a justification. But to not consider those factors in folks cash crab theories is quite short sighted IMO.

    But in all fairness in regards to the Collector’s Edition, to have those prices fluctuate so widely (from $600 to $350) on the release date, I think is very fair for folks to be a little bent out of shape.

    The SDE though I think while more expensive, that considering the problems and conditions that we are facing with Covid, that probably understandable.

    If Covid is sorted out prior to the next set or sets, we will see if these disruptions in the supply chain were the reason or whether it was a conscious decision to raise their prices. I take a wait and see outlook.

    With that being said, just really happy that during these rather troubling times that we have something nice released that we can sit down and enjoy !

    That one seems to have escaped me all these years. It does seem perhaps unofficial (?).

    Boy guys this COVID thing really has killed my weekend.
    Just feeling like el crud o . I’m feeling more like Wally (who’s dead you know), just dropping things, feeling like Arnie in a cell with no out. Even the cats are trying to cheer me up. And then I canceled the uDiscover order, not out of anger, just out of who knows. But our fine member Bill here sold me his so I’ll get it soon, but do any of you just feel really schidty?
    It’s so bad that even on Jazz 24, most of the songs their playing are pissing me off. No Swing, no mojo, no groove, what a schitty weekend.
    Hope this helps anybody out there feeling the same.
    Plus it’s coming up on a year (Aug 23) that we lost Mom.
    Miss Her.

    Hang in there. These are unprecedented times, and it is tough to stay positive.
    But hopefully the music will help, although there might be some days when even that isn't working.
