McCartney – Paperback Classics: Vol III

Two of the all-time most inexplicably unreleased Paul McCartney paperback classics ever, and two songs that just happen to be among the artist’s most timeless recordings either for sheer quality, highly interesting unrealised hit-potential or buried in time. They are songs only McCartney nerds (like myself) know about via bootlegs and a world of compilations. Here at The Press we have unearthed these historically interesting and amazing tracks and present them in double A-side format for your listening pleasure.

McCartney – Paperback Classics: Vol III mp3


A Love For You – A Buddy Holly-esque track was prepared by Paul to be released on a single with Red Rose Speedway’s Get On The Right Thing as the A-side, but the single never materialised. A Love For You wasn’t on the 1978 version of the unreleased track compilation Cold Cuts, but opened the 1980 version. Paul kept adding overdubs over the years, every version of it is a bit different. This is not the edited remix from January 1981, but the historically interesting, and slightly rarer original Ram 1970 demo.

Unbelievable Experience – An unreleased reggae-style joke song dating back to1980. It was part of a set of songs brought by Paul to George Martin for consideration for his new LP which was to become Tug Of War. This one was rejected by producer Martin, but is certainly a lost gem.

    Thanks for sharing. While it’s no ‘Daytime Nighttime Suffering’, ‘A Love For You’ sounds as though it would have probably polished-up very nicely.

  2. You’re welcome paolo. Hope you enjoy these great tunes. Pierce
