Paul McCartney has emailed premium members of his website today to offer a 14-track download of his 2007 performance at the L.A. Amoeba Records store in June 2007.
Dubbed Paul McCartney – ‘Live In Los Angeles The Extended Set’, it is the second in a ‘package of goodies’ designed to reward his premium members since the membership scheme is effectively at an end thanks to a website upgrade.
Four tracks from this show were originally released on an EP entitled Amoeba’s Secret, and then a 12-track version was available for one day in the UK and Ireland via the Daily Mail under the moniker Live In Los Angeles.
The 14-track download adds Memory Almost Full tracks Nod Your Head and House Of Wax which were part of the original set list, both previously unreleased.
**Update** – SuperDeluxeEdition reader Ian Jackson has pointed out that House Of Wax (live at Amoeba) was on the b-side to the Ever Present Past single! So only ONE track is actually ‘unreleased’. Very poor from McCartney’s team to make this error. Kind of dilutes the offering somewhat!
Unreleased tracks are an improvement on the previously offered Live Kisses download, but McCartney’s apparent reluctance to release any studio outtakes or alternates to premium members still rankles, especially given the size of his audio archive.
We have a copy of the exclusive CD – Paul McCartney Live In Los Angeles to give away to one lucky reader. This is the 12-track version of the Amoeba gig that was only available for one day in the UK and Ireland. To enter this competition click here.
