Give My Regards to Broad Street is the soundtrack album to the film of the same name and the fifth studio album by Paul McCartney. Unlike the film, the album was commercially successful, in Britain, where it achieved number 1 on the UK chart. The scope of the album was so immense that when it saw release that October, its vinyl issue had specially edited versions of its songs.
McCartney would re-sign with EMI worldwide where he remained until with his Columbia output reverting to his new — and original — label in the US: Capitol Records. The accompanying animated film was shown in cinemas immediately preceding the main Give My Regards to Broad Street feature. Track lengths on album notes do not include spoken sections between songs and so do not match CD timings.
On the list above these sections are included at the beginning of each track, as on the release, while on the remastered CD listed above they are mostly included at the end of the tracks.

It should have worked, right? Should have worked. The album, which served as a soundtrack to a failed film, stalled at No. The album would make it to No. McCartney would never reach such heights again.
Could you blame his fans? Even the affable Ringo Starr found the project confusing and refused to drum on any of the reworked Beatles songs. Simultaneously with the film's premiere in November, "We All Stand Together" was released as a single and became a hit in the UK, reaching 3. A video game based on the film was released for the Commodore 64 and Sinclair ZX Spectrum home computers in The game takes place after the action of the film and it is discovered that one track from the album was missing from the recovered tapes.
The missing track was also going to be the lead single so without it, the studio is back in jeopardy. The player takes the role of McCartney who must travel around London to track down members of the band and other people who were at the original studio session to help piece the track back together. The game package contained a fold out map of London  and profiles of the characters which the player needs to use to predict where to find them.
Although its soundtrack was a success, the film itself was met with negative reviews. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film one out of four stars, praising its music as "wonderful" but said it "is about as close as you can get to a nonmovie, and the parts that do try something are the worst.

I'm looking at one of my songs. I don't want to be ashamed of anything I've written. Not that Starr was necessarily better used elsewhere. He joined Jones who'd also been part of the "Rockestra" lineup , Edmunds and Chris Spedding for a slouch through "Ballroom Dancing," originally released on 's Tug of War ' In fact, a trio of remakes on Broad Street were less than two years old, including the forgettable Pipes of Peace ballad "So Bad," which hardly needed another pass.
Still, there were, if you looked hard enough, two small saving graces, both of them loose, original rockers and both featuring Dave Edmunds and Ringo Starr: "Not Such a Bad Boy" and "No Values," which ends in a scalding mini-jam.
They couldn't have been more welcome — or out of place. Their attitude and crunch only made the rest of the throwaway material on Give My Regards to Broad Street feel more washed out. Top 10 hit, but hasn't aged much better than "Silly Love Songs.
