More hints at new Macca ‘best of’


Following the post earlier today about Paul McCartney‘s Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five white label, we speculated whether a remix album or perhaps some kind of retrospective/hits set was imminent. The latest tweet by McCartney seems to confirm the latter is what is most likely to happen…

The tweet itself is simply an animated gif which flashes through a list of McCartney singles along with a few choice album cuts. SDE counted 67 in total and to save you the hassle of trying to work it out from the tweet, check out the list below (album titles in brackets).

Is this the track listing for perhaps a four-CD box set? All the ‘proper’ solo and Wings studio albums are represented with the exception of 2001’s Driving Rain and 1989’s Flowers in the Dirt. The former wasn’t exactly a classic, but no My Brave Face or This One from the latter is bizarre. Yes, we are expecting a Flowers in the Dirt Archive Collection deluxe later this year, but so what?

There are a couple of what you might call ‘deep cuts’ here. Winedark Open Sea from Off The Ground and Don’t Let It Bring You Down from London Town being two of them. The latter is great, but not sure about the former! Sing The Changes from the 2008 Fireman album Electric Arguments, also features.
