Wings at the Speed of Sound, released in March 1976, featuring the smash single, “Silly Love Songs,” went on to become Sir Paul McCartney’s post-Beatles band Wing’s most successful album in America. This is also the Wings album that actually sees each band member singing lead on at least one song. On this remastered deluxe edition we get a great remastered version of the album, plus some other goodies.

It opens with the bouncy hit, “Let ‘Em In,” a song based around a low simple bass and piano, then leads into the Denny Laine vocal-lead of the longer (maybe too long for its own good) “The Note You Never Wrote,” featuring a searing lead from guitarist Jimmy McCulloch, then to Jimmy himself singing lead on the mid-tempo, floaty electric piano ills-of-drinking song, “Wino Junko,” on which we get lots of variety in what is mostly a mid-tempo collection of songs.

“Silly Love Songs” sounds fantastic here, all those percussion steam-like sounds at the end and the bass truly popping clear. It’s wonderful to hear the tune presented re-mastered. Drummer Joe English manages a clear McCartney-like lead vocal on another mid-tempo, up-front acoustic guitar feature, “Must Do Something About It” and Paul offers up the soft vocals we are used to on “San Ferry Anne,” a song featuring some cool bugle work and English matching Paul’s bass for a nice little backing.

This re-mastered deluxe edition also includes demos of “Silly Love Songs,” “Let ‘Em In,” “She’s My Baby,” and a much heavier than it is on the album “Beware My Love (John Bonham version)” with none other then the infamous Zep drummer playing drums!
