A 1973 Song from Paul McCartney and Wings Has Been Remixed into a Club Hit

It’s one of the best album closers of the 70s: “Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five,” side two, track five on Paul McCartney and Wings’ 1973 album, Band on the Run. It’s been resurrected as a remix by a German producer named Timo Maas, who got some help from Canadian DJ James Teej. Bootlegs had been selling for about $600 after it was released last year, but now that Macca has tweeted this…

…and this…

…everything is now legit.

  • Fantastic remix! I haven’t heard Timo Mass’ name in awhile, great to see he’s still producing tracks. If you’re interested, check out this remix he did of “Don’t Make Me Come To Vegas” by Tori Amos; my personal fav Timo Maas re-work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrpMbtwkTic
