Abbey Road mastering engineer Alex Wharton tells us about his experience of working on the reissues of Wild Life and Red Rose Speedway by @PaulMcCartney and Wings, personally supervised by Paul McCartney.
“It’s always an absolute honour and pleasure to work with Paul and the team at MPL – Steve, Alex and Aoife. Working on Wild Life and Red Rose Speedway, there were so many nuggets such as the psychedelic jam Loup (1st Indian On The Moon) and When The Wind Is Blowing. These are incredible portals in my opinion! It’s amazing to see how much Paul cares about music that he has already put out into the ether – to go back to the original tapes and create a sound that both Paul and we believe will touch people in a deeper way. The song Wild Life is a real highlight for me. It’s a great sounding record, but the lyrics cover real awareness and the relationship between ourselves and other animals – themes that are more relevant today than ever.”
