Bonus Episode! Andy’s GOT BACK Review (Met Life Stadium 6/16/22)

Episode 171: 50th Anniversary of First 3 Wings Singles (1972)

June 25th, 2022

Another 50th Anniversary. God we're all getting old aren't we these days with these anniversaries!

Nonetheless, another Macca milestone in 2022 is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the First 3 Wings singles which all happened in 1972. We're early with one of them but figured what the heck. This week on 2Legs Andy discuss 'Give Ireland Back To The Irish', 'Mary Had A Little Lamb'/'Little Woman Love' and 'Hi Hi Hi/C Moon'.

Their legacy in the McCartney canon. We also discuss if they would have fared better if they were just released and billed as "Paul McCartney" and not Wings, coming off the heels of Wild Life.

Anyone out there buy these at the time of release? Were you impressed or just meh? Let us know. Till next time! Tom & Andy

Episode 170: Happy 80th Macca! (Ranking The Albums)

June 18th, 2022

80!

On this special day, we finally ranked Paul's albums from least to best. We chose 26 albums. We did not include live, classical, or Firemen albums.

We included Choba BCCP, Run Devil Run and Kisses On The Bottom. This was our longest show yet! At 3 hours it's a marathon but we felt on this occasion it was ok to a bit over the top about our favourite guy!

We are blessed he has continued to make new music and thankful for everything he has given us.

Long Live Paul! Tom & Andy

Episode 169: NEMS and Beatles Merchandising (With Author Terry Crain)

June 11th, 2022

Hi 2Legs Faithful! This time we focus on an episode that is not 100% Paul centric but Beatles focused.

Beatles Merchandising was BIG business in the 1960s. The American Company SELTAEB produced many between 1964-1966 when the marketplace for this merchandise (dolls, "Flip Your Wig Game, Beatles Turntable) etc. NEMS (Northern End Music Stores) was Brian Epstein's family company and the record store was originally located in Whitechapel, City Centre, Liverpool.

This week on 2Legs we are joined by Terry Crain who wrote the book "NEMS and the Business of Selling Beatles Merchandise in the US between 1964-1966". Terry was recently featured as a guest author panel at the NY/NJ Fest and will be appearing at the Chicago Fest in August as well. Terry gives us an overview of this topic, how he met collectors across the USA who kept museums in their homes of these products.

They are shown on display in this episode and photographs can be found in Terry's wonderful book. Here is the link: NEMS & Beatles Merchandising 1964-1966

Terry is a wealth of knowledge in this field that gets overlooked and we thank him for his appearance on 2Legs

May 30th, 2022

A surprise for us! Denny Seiwell & Fernando Perdomo joined us again for a special interview yesterday!

They appeared previously on 2Legs last year when the RAM ON Tribute album first came out. Now the duo that put the tribute album together are back and planning for a live show where the full album will be played start to finish with some of the musicians who appeared on the tribute record at the famous Troubadour club in LA on July 16th.

We are incredibly proud and pleased to share our special bonus episode with Denny & Fernando with you. And if you are in the area in July please go to the show. Tickets can be found here: (https://wl.seetickets.us/wafform.aspx...)

Fernando and Denny tell us how initially it was just going to be a live show of RAM back in 2020/2021 but Covid put that on hold so they ended up doing the album instead. Now they're initial concept is realized! Congrats to Denny & Fernando on putting this together, staying true to the music and spending some time with us today.

Episode 168: Middle 8’s/Bridges With Dylan Sevey

May 28th, 2022

An episode for the musician! Paul has some excellent Middle 8's (UK) and Bridges (US) in his oeuvre. From The Beatles to his solo career.

Returning again is 2Legs in house musician, producer (and soon to be author - more on that in the show), Dylan Sevey to discuss the art of the Middle 8/Bridge and how McCartney as a writer does this in his music.

The 3 of us discuss some of our favourite Middle 8's/Bridges as they are sometimes a forgotten piece of the songwriting process which people usually focus on Verse/Chorus etc.

What are some of your fav's? Rock on

James discusses his career and writing and why he chose to tackle and analyse one of The Beatles most celebrated songs. Beatles historical context, Paul as a writer during this time and the legacy of 'Hey Jude' some 50+ years later and why the song has such "emotional currency." Tom and Andy definitely agree. We think you will too! Thanks to James and his agent for arranging this interview and we look forward to seeing it succeed!
