Good morning! How 'bout those Flames, eh!

First up, a link for Dave Puckett, Fred Hembeck, Nik Dirga, and anybody else who is interested in the Fabs, specifically Paul McCartney: Paul McCartney's Secret Vault, in which mp3 downloads are available of several obscure McCartney tunes, mostly from the late 60s-early 70s but peppered with a Beatle-era cut or two. Myself, I was delighted to see the mega-obscure "Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance" from Paulie's 1973 James Paul McCartney special, never officially released, and "Suicide", a small snippet of which appeared at the end of "Hot as Sun/Glasses" on 1970's McCartney but unheard fully by me until today. It's a loungey jazz-ish tune which, as the website tells us, was once offered to Sinatra. Shyeah, right! Like ol' Blue Eyes was gonna do a song with THAT title! Anyway, check it out- it appeals to the Beatles obscurists among us, for sure. Thanks to the redoubtable Stupid Llama for the link-a-rino.
