"Jet" - Vocal Track Isolated
Hello Paul fans....
Found this gem, and thought you might enjoy it.
Imagine you wandered into a recording studio, not really knowing where you were, but you knew a band was recording (weird... dreamlike I know, bear with me). You see lots of engineers, and a huge mixing board. No one notices you as you slip into the back of the room, so you linger. You see on a table in the back, a pair of old, 70's style headphones. On them is written "PAUL" on a big piece of tape using a marker. You pick them up and put them on.....
This is really cool to hear. You get to listen to how much fun McCartney was having cutting a vocal. He didn't care about noise or a slight intonation problem or a slurred word. Clapping, stomping feet, extraneous noise.
I agree 62, Paul was just a fearless singer in his prime. He wasn't afraid to attempt to hit any note or just vamp like a maniac. My solo album experience was actually Paul, as well. But it was the B side of Band on the Run that started me being a Wings fan. Nineteen Hundred Eighty Five just sent me into space. I figured if this is a B side, I gotta check the rest of these albums out. And Paul became my first favorite "deep tracks" artist.
Oh this is so COOL!! Vocals absolutely spot on, terrific harmony from the backups....you can really hear how well Linda does on harmonies. She might not have been the best vocalist on the planet but boy could she blend!
