Paul McCartney & Wings - "Wild Life (50th Anniversary)" [Half-Speed Master LP] 50th anniversary reissue of Paul McCartney & Wings' 1971 debut album, Wild Life, which found Paul once again redefining his post-Beatles creative identity, this time beginning his tenure as a founding member of Wings. A rollicking left turn from it's predecessors, the album was recorded in barely more than a week, with more than half of the songs captured in a single take. The end result would be eight songs running the gamut from joyous freewheeling jams to proto-chamber pop to spare introspective musings - all bristling with a raw, jagged energy akin to the grungiest of garage bands - whether on the careening blues-rock rave-up of opener "Mumbo," a reggae-tinged reimagining of Mickey & Sylvia's "Love Is Strange," or the plaintive and heart wrenching ballad "Dear Friend." Limited Edition Indie Exclusive pressed using half-speed mastering on a specially adapted Neumann VMS-80 lathe.
