Following a summer break, Wings moved to Lympne (pronounced Lim) castle in Kent, England. The owners of the castle appeared on two recordings: Dierdre Margary contributed spoken word to the opening track Reception, while her husband Harold recited The Sport Of Kings by Ian Hay and The Little Man by John Galsworthy over the backing track of The Broadcast.
We recorded most of it in a medieval castle in Kent. For a whole month we took over this fortress and proceeded to record in the kitchen, the stairwell, the spiral staircase and the main hall. What's more, the owner found herself narrating a story called The Poodle And The Pug on a special track. It was good. It was interesting. We like to record in unusual places because it gives the recordings a healthier and brighter approach. I personally don't believe in acoustic myths. I think that, as long as you have good mikes and good songs, you can record anywhere.
Paul McCartney
The RAK mobile studio was again used at Lympne; Steve Holly's drums were positioned inside the fireplace in the great hall. Songs worked on at the castle included We're Open Tonight, After The Ball, Million Miles, Reception, The Broadcast, a new version of Love Awake, and a demo of Rockestra Theme.
McCartney wrote and recorded Robber's Ball while at Lympne, and completed the unreleased Cage. Wings also taped an instrumental, Ranachan Rock, but this too remained unused.

I really expected to enjoy this much more than I did when I originally purchased it, but since it was around "Back To The Egg", I took a chance. You were spot on when you called it "odds & ends." "Sunny Side Up", which you posted a few days back, is a much better listen.
