Episode 309: “Wild Life - Archive Deluxe Box Set Review”

March 4, 2019

2Legs would like to welcome their faithful listeners back to another splendid episode of love, laughter, cousin(ly) hi-jinks, and all things McCartney.  Tom and Dave stir up things right away on how they personally feel about the Egypt Station Travelers Edition set; one of the few things they don't necessarily see eye to eye on.  However, they cover equal ground on the pro's and con's of such a set.  Episode 309 also touches upon Things They Bought Today as well as Things They Saw Today during their time since the last episode.

Let's get to the heart of the matter for this show; The Deluxe Edition of Wings' Wild Life (the 11th edition set of the on-going Archive Series). This set may have caught the general public by surprise on being even considered for the Archive Series but after 9 years it makes its rightful place amongst the rest of his celebrated albums.  The 2Legs team does their best to give the listener their impressions of presentation, content, value, as well as some critiques on this freshly released set from Dec 2018.  Tom and Dave are pretty much on the same page for this box set and in general of the series (which is entering its 10th calendar year).  2Legs actually has an episode that graces just the one hour mark - so we hope not to bore you too long.  We'll make up for it in the following shows.

Episode 308 “The Art Of McCartney”

February 4, 2019

Ever wonder why Paul McCartney was sitting with his Ovation Acoustic guitar while the other members of Wings were rocking out on the inner gatefold sleeve of Wings Over America?  Did you ever take close note on why the hands of Michael Jackson seems slightly off on the cover of the SAY SAY SAY 1983 45 single sleeve?  Was that Temporary Secretary 45 single sleeve leading to any curiosity?  Who the hell was Sni Muk Fej on the corner of This One's single sleeve?  Jeff Cummins' (try to spell his name backwards folks) art has created those head scratching questions and the 2Legs team are determined to get to the bottom of this conundrum even if it takes us two plus hours to get them answered. 

From an artistic career that has spanned across decades covering (pun intended) the following: Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman, Ted Nugnet, Alan White, Keith Emerson, Whitesnake, The Moody Blues, Eric Clapton, and Paul McCartney [PLUS MANY MORE] - Jeff's resume of over 45 years is one to be extremely proud of since he has contributed to some of the most iconic album art ever released.

Jeff takes Dave and Tom on a journey to tell the stories behind some of these releases.  Revelations have been unearth on the never spoken truth behind the original concept of the 45 sleeve of Ebony and Ivory being eventually re-configured for SAY SAY SAY.  2Legs re-confirms, with the help of Jeff, the rumors of the re-issue of the Wings Over America LP coming later this year.

AS AN ADDED BONUS: Jeff was obviously enjoying our company and kept telling some more great stories.  A bonus feature will be available after the main 2 hr segment.

Stay tuned for Episode 309: 2Legs review of the 2018 Wild Life Archive Box Set toward the end of February.

Episode 307 “Get Enough”

January 30, 2019

At the stroke of Midnight (Eastern Standard Timezone) on New Years Day Paul McCartney dropped the new song "Get Enough." This was the third and final Ryan Tedder production. Since it was not released on his latest LP this could very well be a preview to one of the tracks that may eventually be on the "Egypt Station" deluxe box set come May/June time frame. This song has had quite the reaction as many McCartney fans question his latest experimental exploration into the world of 2018 contemporary.


Tom Hunyady and David Gargalino tackle the new track and discuss how this lines up with his career choices of reaching into the flavor of the current era to try as his own. Many times throughout McCartney's career he has worked with the "Current" or 'It" producers/artists to incorporate the current sound into his songs. "Egypt Station" was no exception to his desire to strike it hot with the latest sounds and producers. We also talk about our favorite experimental tracks from his almost 50 year post-Beatles career as to bring it full circle of understanding what an artist Paul McCartney really is.

Episode 306: “NEW”

December 31, 2018

2Legs would like to send out their massive gratitude to everyone whom has followed the show in seasons 2 & 3 in 2018! We are ALWAYS indebted to all of our guests whom have taken their time away from their respective projects to sit down with us for a couple of hours.

This past year probably has been the busiest we've seen in Paul McCartney activity at least since we started this podcast.  There was a lot to reflect on. We are still digesting everything that has been released in the McCartney camp.  There was a little less bickering in 2018 than 2017 but certain things still kicked up the collective public debate.  How many people can you say at the young age of 76 are still relevant in today's ever changing world.

We have been blessed to have received a new Paul McCartney album, the never-ending gigs, as well as the 11th and 12th Archive releases.  Let's reminisce no longer on print and let's take a journey to our minds in audio form on what may become the busiest/most exciting year in the McCartney world in ages.

Thank you for a great 2018 and we expect 2019 to be just as great!




[Editor Note: Tom send his apologies for a couple of events that happened in March but were referenced to February]

Episode 303 - “GET IT”

October 27, 2018

$$$$2Legs is back and more expensive than ever!  Roughly two months after the release of "Egypt Station" Paul has announced the next batch of archive sets due out on Dec 7th.  But is it too much too soon?  With the "Imagine" set out from a couple weeks ago and the 50th anniversary of the "White Album" due out on Nov. 9th - this new blitz release doesn't give much time for fans to reload their wallets.  Join Tom Hunyady and David Gargalino as they give the quick rundown on the sets.


Editor note: 

The 2Legs team knows this series, since 2010, is called the Archive Collection; across all formats.  However during the show the Deluxe format gets the verbiage designation of the Archive set.  We're one step ahead of everyone to point this nomenclature out.

Episode 302 - “Rockshow Commentary Part II”

October 9, 2018
THE podcast crossover event of the season continues with part 2 commentary of the 2013 Blu-ray/DVD re-release of "Rockshow" with the guys from "When They Was Fab!"  Ed Chen and Lonnie Pena tag along with the 2Legs team as they discuss many topics; one of which includes the wonderful world of buying tickets - then vs now.  Lonnie so graciously takes us down memory lane to tell us what it was like seeing Paul in 1976.  Flashing forward to the present - Ed gives us a glimpse of things to come as he talks about seeing Paul in Winnipeg back in September on the current "Freshen-Up" tour.
The 2Legs team had a blast with Ed and Lonnie and hope to cross over again!  Luckily no raincoats were needed for this episode.
