    Aren't they doing BACK TO THE EGG next?
    If only Paul had not to decided to release Junior's Farm and Sally G as a non-album A-side/B-side and instead saved them for Venus & Mars that would have made for one of Paul's greatest post-Beatles albums. Junior's Farm could have played the role of addictive rocker that Maybe I'm Amazed, Eat At Home, Jet, and Old Siam Sir play on his 70's masterpieces. I like Rock Show but it just doesn't have that sort of drive. As for Sally G., it would have made for a fine addition to the gorgeous songs Love in Song and Listen to What the Man Said.

    I hope Back to the Egg is next. A masterpiece.

    I like "Rock Show" but the problem is that it only really works live (and it fabulously does on WINGS OVER AMERICA.) The recorded version is neutered.

    When I picked up Wings Over America I was stunned how ferocious and wonderful Rock Show came off. That had been a disappointment on Venus and Mars when it came out - that it was a rock song that just didn't quite rock. It didn't take off and you knew it didn't take off. But the opening of Wings Over America is one of the greatest, maybe the greatest, opening for a live album ever.
