Regarding the above interview with Stephen Colbert, it's interesting that the topic of the Abbey Road 50th Anniversary set never came up, and it was about to be released in a couple of days. I thought that was why Paul was appearing on the show in the first place. Colbert even "opened the door" when he said he thought the photo of John and Paul (displayed during the interview) was taken as John and Paul were collaborating on the Abbey Road "long medley".

Always nice to hear new (well, kind of) Paul McCartney music.
"Home Tonight" - This sounds a little "poppier" than most of the other Egypt Station tracks but I like it. It sounds like a combination of a couple of old Paul solo songs. I hear some Flaming Pie influence which is a good thing.
"In A Hurry" - This one doesn't sound so much like previous Paul. Good vocal and bass by Paul. This song could be catchy with repeated listens. Not crazy about the start-and-stop ending, though.
I'm pleasantly surprised, and impressed, by "Home Tonight" and "In A Hurry". They both would have improved Egypt Station. I might go as far to say that they're both among Paul's best of the 21st century (for instance, top 25-30). Man, I'll never tire of Paul's bass playing and the sound he gets.
B.E.: I skimmed the Mark Linett interview recently posted on SSMB. He said he’s hoping for a Fall release for the box set.

Sheriff John Stone: Was hoping for a spring/early summer release, however, I hope for a spring/early summer release with EVERY Beach Boys' album! I can wait for fall.

Kapitan: Maybe we’ll get that BW doc that we heard about way back when, Long Promised Doc 😀

kds: I get the feeling that documentary will one day be mentioned in the same breath as the 50th Anniversary Doc that was supposed to happen in 2012

Kapitan: And Pleasure Island!?

Sheriff John Stone: I'm skeptical about that Long Promised Road doc, not whether it will eventually come out, but the quality. If the highlight is Brian and an interviewer driving around and Brian commenting on BB songs/albums, I can only imagine how that'll go...

Sheriff John Stone: ...Brian, what do you think about the song, "Long Promised Road"? Brian - "I thought Carl sang it great." Brian, what do you think about The Beach Boys Love You album? Brian - "There's some great songs on that album."

Kapitan: I'm skeptical about EVERYTHING. But that doesn't mean I'm not interested in seeing and hearing it all.

Wata: I hope it would include some rarities - hopefully with the accompanying soundtrack. And it's time we got to listen to snippets from the rendition of "Long Promised Road" Brian supposedly recorded for the doc. I'm not holding my breath for it, but still...

kds: From the description, it sounded like a new version of the Brian Wilson On Tour doc.

Kapitan: Except as I recall, they were focusing on driving around LA for a lot of it. Just Brian and whoever the eventual filmmaker was (there had been a replacement) seeing the sights and chatting.

Kapitan: btw, it's just a couple weeks shy of a year since they released the movie poster.
Feb 28, 2020 13:31:24 GMT
kds: And, didn't they do the driving around bit in the IJWMFTT doc?
