February 23rd, 1971 “The Great Cock And Seagull Race” (Released on Wings WILD LIFE archive edition 2018)
And THRILLINGTON was recorded from June 15th-18th, 1971.
Meanwhile Paul continued to write more songs. It was around this time that Paul, who liked working with Denny, David and Linda decided to form a band with them. Spinozza declined the offer and
Paul reached out to friend and musical buddy from the early 1960’s, former Moody Blues Denny Laine to join. Denny agreed.
On August 3rd, 1971 the press was informed about their new (then un-named) band.Stella was born on September 13th and the name WINGS was decided on.
We will go over each of these recording when we get to the releases that allowed them to see the light of day.
Finally…“Blackpool” – Interesting call and response song from Paul and Linda that never seems to get through the basic verse stage. It’s silly lyrics about either post codes (zip codes) or possibly women’s measurements? Released on RAM archive edition 2012 Rating – 5
On July 24th, 1971 the “band” went into the studio to record.
The recording ended on July 29th…..5 days in the studio led us to the next release
On December 7th, 1971 we got Wings WILD LIFE…. next.
