We were always aware that Paul and Wings had considered releasing Red Rose Speedway as a double album from our reading up on everything and anything we can get our hands on when you have such a rich music history as Paul, you need to do a lot of reading to try and keep up! So after Paul decided the next two reissues in his Archive Collection, we set ourselves the task of finding out what happened to this double album.
Looking through the archives which is actually a pretty comprehensive digital library we found paperwork alluding to acetates of the double album… but with different track listings! So that started another treasure hunt: what was the correct version?!
During the research, either the essay writer or MPL aim to speak with as many of the musicians, producers and engineers from the period as we can - we always want the story to be as complete as possible.
So we jumped out of our seats when we learned that Denny Seiwell drummer on Wild Life and Red Rose Speedway still had three of the four acetates of a version of the touted release. And luckily the tracklisting for the fourth side was also written on there — so we had a physical document from the time! You can see scans of these acetates in the page essay book included in the Deluxe Edition.
