I am giving this the same review as I did with the regular version of Broad Street. Some selected tracks for review:
No More Lonely Nights (Ballad)- Contains a few extra bass notes for the LP/CD. The single version is simply one of Paul's best songs ever. One of my top favorites. One of his last major hits in both the US and UK from fall of 1984. A masterpiece!
Not Such A Bad Boy- A great rocker. It is a shame Paul didn't do more new songs for the album. His vocal sounds a slight bit like Old Siam Sir.
No Values- Sounds like a later day Wings rocker. Paul states he dreamed that the Rolling Stones sang this one. Very similar to their style. This is the second instance where Paul admitted dreaming up a song. The first was the original version of Yesterday.
No More Lonely Nights (Extended Version)- This is listed as 6:56 in length, but is actually 8:10 in length. Starts with a humming sound. This is yet another remix of the ballad. To be more precise this is a remix of the playout version, which is track #14. Handclaps, drum machines, extra keyboard all make for a version with all of the bells and whistles. This could be the 8:10 extended mix which appeared on the US and UK first edition of the 12 inch singles.
No More Lonely Nights (Special Dance Mix)- This is correctly listed as 4:21 in length. More of the "kitchen sink" thrown in. The vocals on this one have more "echo" to them. This might also be known as the Arhtur Baker remix.
For the song No More Lonely Nights, there were at least 5 to 6 different versions. For my money though, the ballad version on the single is the definitve version. Direct and played well.
This album could be a good completion to your collection to compare different versions of the song.

Say what you will about the movie, but the soundtrack is undeniably awesome. In fact, if the original versions of these songs had been all released on one LP, it would have been one of the greatest Beatles albums! That's not to say that Paul's remakes are worse than the originals, just less authentic (at the most, only two Beatles on a track at once). The remakes are very true to the originals (even the "she feels good" voice in the background in "Good Day Sunshine" remains), but sound considerably more produced (hey, it was the mid-80's). The album was produced & engineered by George Martin & Geoff Emerick, respectively, keeping some of the authenticity of the songs intact.
The medley "Yesterday/Here, There, & Everywhere/Wanderlust" is outstanding. The harmony vocals of "Here, There, & Everywhere" and the string quartet of "Yesterday" have been replaced by a gentle brass ensamble. (And unlike the Wings Over America version, the horns on "Yesterday" don't sound overly bombastic here.) "Wanderlust" sounds rather similar to the original, except the drums are considerably more pronounced.
This extended version of "Ballroom Dancing" is far superior to the original with a new guitar solo and an extra verse. "Silly Love Songs" sounds much more in its element in the 80's than the original Wings version. Lots more bass and clearer instrumentation. It also contains some electrifying lead guitar and impressive bass work in the extended section of the song.
Two of the songs which were new on this album, "Not Such A Bad Boy" & "No Values," may be the weakest, but they're both good.

This is one of my favorite Paul McCartney albums.
There is a good choice of songs here.His remakes of classic Beatle songs such as Yesterday,Here There and Everywhere ,Good Day Sunshine,For No One ,Eleanor Rigby,and especially this version of The Long and Winding Road were all recorded beautifully.I usually dont like songs redone (except for live versions) cause they never quite hit the spot with me.But this is an exception to the rule.
Ringo Starr was playing drums on many of the tunes,and you get a few glimpses of his humor between songs.
There is also some remakes of some of his post Beatle days which are all excellent.This CD contains the hit No More Lonely Nights.

Almost everybody knows the music of Paul McCartney, but try finding a copy of: "Give My Regards To Broadstreet" in your friends CD Collection. This is one of Paul's very best solo Works of all, but it is one of the least known CD's that has his name attached to it.

As I'm aware this is an soundtrack recording from a film that I've never thought as well...being any good, the music Paul and Producer George Martin, produced for said film is very good and has moments of greatness.

The major complaint at the time of release was: "How dare Paul, re-work The Beatles tunes". This was still considered blasphemy in the sacred world of The Beatles. Well, Paul did "Yesterday" & "Eleanor Rigby" as solo pieces in 1966 whilst still a Beatle, so did that rant make any sense in the first place? In fact, six Beatles songs, are re-done by Paul {Of 18 tracks total} and they are produced & performed to perfection. The big song from this project was: "No More Lonely Nights" and it was a big hit for Paul. I'm not a fan of the "Disco" version that comes towards the end of the film, but it was for the story of the movie, and because of that it was reworked into a dance number.

George Martin, scored orchestrations and scored them well. "Eleanor's Dream" is a pretty piece of music, that both Paul and George had good reason to be proud of! "So Bad" is a wonderful love song that should have been a hit single, it's just one of Paul's best {but overlooked} songs.
"Not Such A Bad Boy" is a rocker with a great beat by a certain; "Richard Starkey" that would have made a great addition to any set at The Cavern Club in 1962.

The diversity of Musical Styles on this CD is vast. Old Ballroom Music is mixed in with Rock,Classical those Silly Love Songs. "Band On The Run", is normally considered Paul's finest solo moment, but for me "Give My Regards To Broadstreet" should be right up there with the Best of his Records of Wings and beyond...FOUR STARS !!!
