Something About the Beatles

Nov 27, 2019

Special guests don't come much more special: today, a man who needs no introduction. His 1974 album, McGear, was produced with a little help from his big brother ("Our Kid" to you). It features contributions from members of a then-contemporary band, including Linda McCartney, Denny Laine and Jimmy McCulloch, and has often been spoked of as a "missing" Wings album. But Mike's artistry is all his own, making McGear, in a way, the album Paul never did make. 

This extended conversation covers not only the brand new re-issue from Cherry Red Records (including a bonus disc of unreleased material + DVD and poster, as well as a deluxe vinyl edition) but Mike's work with The Scaffold - the 1968 McGough and McGear album produced by Paul - and an array of artists: Paul Robeson - Tina Turner - Pete Wingfield - Paddy Maloney, and Jimi Hendrix.
