Im not going to review the music as people have already done that .
This is a review of the box set .
Compared to the previous sets this is the disapointing one .
The two latest box set are now in a book form instead of a box with books in them .
Venus and Mars is a great set , but this is poor .
The extra music is about 21 minutes so could have gone onto the album cd as one disc .
The dvd is poor . Original promo for Silly Love Songs , and a short film of Wings setting up in Venice which is fine but Wings fans were waiting for the film of Wings over Wembley. The problem is the whole film is not here , only a excerpt . This is meant to be the definitive version , a box set ! So why not put in the full film ?
Its seems that for such a big album that Speed of Sound was they just could not be bothered with putting in any more music or video and so compared to the other sets this is not value for money . Shame.

Speed Of Sound is, a good album, with only one track really letting the side down: Cook Of The House being SoS's Yellow Submarine.At times it is a great album, with songs such as Let 'Em In, Silly Love Songs and the majestic, epic, Beware My Love up there with the best that McCartney ever wrote and performed. Wino Junko is the only other slightly naff song, but as a teenager is the Seventies I well remember whole albums of rubbish being released to back a hit single from other artists and that's one thing Paul could never be accused of in the 1970's (80's maybe, but we're getting off message).
SoS doesn't quite reach as high as Venus and Mars or the pinnacle of class that was Band On The Run, but when you consider these three were released within only three years of each other it's hard not to be impressed.
As far as the remastering is concerned, I've listened to this back to back with the 1993 remaster and there is a very obvious improvement, even to my ravaged hearing (The bells, the bells!). It's difficult to be specific, suffice to say that everything is clearer and crisper; you can now hear individual instruments, with much clearer separation. The 1993 now sounds quite muddy in cpmparison. Overall, then, a success and worth the money- I think this is the fourth time I've bought it: Vinyl, Original CD release, 1993 Remaster, 2014 Remaster- so that'll probably do it until they release the Holographic, Paul singing in your living room version.

A review of the 2cd/dvd Super Deluxe...

If you're a Wings or Macca fan, these recent SDE releases in the PM Archive Collection have been pretty decent outings, especially Ram and Wings Over America. Up until now at least. Gone are the linen bound book style presentation replaced with poorly manufactured product (including the discs themselves) from China. Now I'm all for free market/trade and all that sort of thing but this is obviously an exercise in extending your profit margin. Whether it's by Starbucks or MPL Communications, the results are very unimpressive and these two most recent additions to the archives are of such cheap quality I'm very concerned for the next instalment of the series. If they are as poorly made as Speed Of Sound and Venus and Mars, I won't be buying them which is such a shame because I really like this period of Paul McCartney's career. The music is four - five star albums, the presentation is a big fat zero for me.

After 'Band on The Run' it was clear that McCartney had his confidence back. 'Venus and Mars' was a successful follow-up. Then in 1976 came this, which was an equally popular album. The threesome that had recorded 'Band on the Run' had been joined by Jimmy McCulloch and Joe English to form what many regard as the strongest Wings line-up. On this CD Wings was a group and not just a vehicle for an ex-Beatle.

The remix quality of this CD is very good. The voices and instruments are clear and precisely placed. An excellent piece of work.

The CD starts with the famous track 'Let 'em In', now a standard.

Then Denny Laine takes the lead on 'The Note You Never Wrote', which is a strong track: very sad. Paul had clearly recognised that one of the Beatles' strengths was that it had four members each capable of taking the lead vocals. A variety of lead breaks up a long album. Later on Jimmy McCulloch takes the lead on 'Wino Junko', Denny leads again on 'Time to Hide', Joe English sings 'Must do Something About It' and Linda sings 'Cook of the House'. Of the eleven original tracks, five are sung by the 'other' group members and not McCartney.

'She's my Baby' is one of the weaker tracks but immediately followed by 'Beware My Love': instantly memorable.

After 'Wino Junko' comes one of McCartney's most famous ripostes to John Lennon: 'Silly Love Songs'. This is loved and reviled in equal measure. Either way, it is a once-heard, never-forgotten song. The bass-line is superb.

'Cook of the House' is Linda's contribution: many people will wince at the apparent stereotyping. It's a standard 16-bar rockabilly number: enjoyable but lightweight. 'Time to Hide' is anything but lightweight, however and Denny Laine sings it strongly.
