A Guide to Tagging Your Paul McCartney & Wings Tracks


16. Dez. 2006, 4:29

Because I am totally anal-retentive about my ID3 tags, it really bugs me that people have, for example, all of the tracks on Wingspan (Paul's greatest hits CD, covering his early solo stuff as well as Wings) tagged as "Wings" when there are actually four different artists on the CD:

Paul McCartney
Paul & Linda McCartney
Paul McCartney & Wings

Yes, people, these are ALL DIFFERENT ARTISTS. The only thing they all have in common is Paul. Using them interchangably is WRONG.

So, to make this relatively easy, here are the CORRECT artists for all of the songs on Wingspan, according to the liner notes.

MAJOR EDIT: Although my liner note bible says differently, I'm going to go with consensus and change the tracks from McCartney to artist Paul McCartney instead of Paul & Linda McCartney.

Wingspan: Hits
1. Wings - Listen To What The Man Said
2. Paul McCartney & Wings - Band on the Run
3. Paul McCartney - Another Day
4. Wings - Live and Let Die
5. Paul McCartney & Wings - Jet
6. Paul McCartney & Wings - My Love
7. Wings - Silly Love Songs
8. Paul McCartney - Pipes of Peace
9. Wings - C Moon
10. Wings - Hi Hi Hi
11. Wings - Let 'Em In
12. Wings - Goodnight Tonight
13. Paul McCartney & Wings - Junior's Farm (DJ Edit)
14. Wings - Mull Of Kintyre
15. Paul & Linda McCartney - Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey
16. Wings - With A Little Luck (DJ Edit)
17. Paul McCartney - Coming Up (Live Version)
18. Paul McCartney - No More Lonely Nights

Wingspan: History
1. Paul McCartney & Wings - Let Me Roll It
2. Paul McCartney - The Lovely Linda
3. Wings - Daytime Nighttime Suffering
4. Paul McCartney - Maybe I'm Amazed
5. Paul McCartney & Wings - Helen Wheels

14. Wings - Rockestra Theme

    Spread the Macca love, and tag your tracks right! Do you think this has been Ms. Mills-McCartney's failing? I'd say it was grounds for divorce.

    Laura Mac! I think I might be in love . . . a girl who knows (and appreciates) her Macca and Wings and Paul and Wings and Linda and Paul and on and on and on . . . You rock! Shakespeare

    heh, I just go with what Windows Media Player told me. I think it get's the artist tags right, but their database added information about the album or single in curly brackets to the end of the track name. I should probably change that sometime...

    This is a GREAT guide... can't believe I had all of mine tagged wrong for such a long time! There's only one problem I have with it... the tracks from McCartney's first solo album, McCartney, should only be credited to him, not Paul & Linda McCartney. Great work!

    Okay, I've fixed the tracks from McCartney. Everything should be correct now!

    wingspan may have it as paul and linda, but the orignal album is just paul mccartney, so i think you made the right choice.

    But how are "Wings" and "Paul McCartney and Wings" different bands? The site doesn't consider MC Hammer and Hammer to be different artists, or Snoop Doggy Dogg and Snoop Dogg, or Prince and TAFKAP. Didn't McCartney just decide to add his name into the name of the band?
