The Los Angeles Times tells us more about Sir Paul's contributions to The In-Laws soundtrack (see April 8 ). The Film's executive music producer, Ralph Sall, says he was looking for music from the 1970's, preferably an unknown McCartney tune from that era. His wish came true when Sir Paul offered an unreleased track he had recorded with Wings during the 1972 Ram album sessions called A Love for You. According to Mr. Sall:
."I knew of this song and thought it would be perfect. When I sent a note to Paul saying I was interested in that song, it turns out his people had talked to him about the movie and he sent a note that crossed mine in the mail suggesting a song, and it was the same song!"He soon accompanied Sir Paul into the recording studio to add a few new guitar parts and to do a little remixing. Sir Paul also offered him a previously unreleased verson of Live and Let Die. Mr. Sall was thrilled. He said:
"What a great thing for the movie and for fans of McCartney. Most people wouldn't even know these recordings existed, and even if you are a severe fan you never would think they would show up in this authorized form."
A third Wings tune I'm Carrying will also be included in the movie sound track along with contribution from the Bee Gees, Elvis Presley, Badfinger and ELO. The album soundtrack will be released May 20th on Ralph Sall's new Bulletproof label. The film will open on May 23..
