I knew that, Kev.  But you said you couldn't decide who was worse, Linda or Yoko.


I think Linda sounded pretty good here...

It appears that her microphone was turned up too much. This is what I don't understand, why is her mic louder than Paul's?  ???

My guess: The sound people goofed or this is a fan's soundmix (probably not)

I never said I didn't. I just find it weird that her microphone is turned up higher than Paul's.

Very strange indeed.

I love her harmonies and I think she is the reason Wings has a signature sound. She isnt good all the time, but count me as a fan.

I agree wholeheartedly.

Wow, Todd, you and I can agree.

I like Linda's voice.

but Im guessing you and Todd like her voice because she was married to Paul, your not being truly objective, she is a lousy singer Barry, if she was on any talent show they would give her 1/10 max.
Anybody who isnt a fan of Wings and listened to them would immediately say she is not good enough for a pro band, even in that bluegrass clip Barry posted she goes off key.

If Paul wanted a live or studio female singer he shouldve hired one, a professional one who could actually sing, I would doubt that Linda couldve stood up alone on a stage in a room full of people and impressed them with her singing, your Wings fans and your seeing/hearing through Wings coloured glasses, she couldnt sing, neither can Yoko. If you actually like her poor singing well OK, but at least admit that she is not a pro standard singer.

Yes, she is not a pro-standard singer, but that's why I like her. If you think about, some of the best vocalists hit you from the angle you're least expecting. Bob Dylan did that with me. Linda, while not a "pro" like Paul was, is still an alright singer in my book. Still, just my opinion.

Kev, I said I liked her voice.  And I do precisely because she isn't pitch-perfect.  But she fit into Wings well.  Perhaps she can be considered the Stu Sutcliffe of Wings.

I'm sure Paul worked hard with her in the studio and I'm sure it took several takes to yield what we hear on Wings albums.  She also worked hard at being a mother and photographer.  she was perfect for Paul in so many ways.

I am trying to be objective.

Ok you like her cos she's not pitch perfect..........But if I said, yoko isnt pitch perfect, do you like her too ? you would probably say no you didnt like yoko's singing so your not really being objective :)

Are you serious? When have I never been objective? I like her harmonies and background vocals. Do I think Paul did his magic in the studio for it to sound good? Hell yeah. Do I think she has a good voice? Hell no. Would I go to a concert featuring Linda McCartney solely on vocals? Absolutly HELL no, but I do like her doctored vocals on Wings songs, so your right on that account. Do I think her voice is a deal breaker for me to enjoy good music from Paul? Not even close. There's going to have to be a bigger reason than that.

See, where I think Linda did contribute to Wings, I cant see anything positive in that light for Yoko. She took away regardless of the setting.

I bablled on, but I guess what I want to say is that I dont think she's a good singer, but I like her voice anyways.

Also, Kev said for us to be objective when he hates all the Beatles olo stuff regardless. Hmm, interesting. I didnt read through the entire thread again, but are you blaming Lindas voice for your hatred of Wings Kevin? If so, whats your excuse for John, George, and Ringo? I dont think you would like Wings even if Aretha Franklin was singing backgrounds.  ha2ha
