Detail : Paul's fifteenth solo single.
Credited to "Wings"
This incarnation featuring : Paul, Linda, Denny Laine, Jimmy McCulloch and Joe English.

The first single to be released from the album, "Wings at the Speed of Sound", it so nearly reached number 1,
but was thwarted by The Wurzels comedy record, "Combine Harvester".
In the top weekly newspaper, the N.M.E. the single did top the chart, and thus technically became Wings first number one.

This single dropped the "Capitol" logo that Paul had been using, and in fact contains no noticeable label credit at all,
although the catalogue number, as always, is a Parlophone one.
The single was not released in a picture sleeve, and came with a similar label to the album.

Silly Love Songs was remixed, sampled and re-issued on several promotional records.
To promote "Wingspan" in 2001 McCartney commisioned three remixes which were issued;
In Germany as a promotional c.d. (CDP 000587)
In Italy by the Dance Factory label on 12" (7243 880073 6 8)
In Holland a house mix by Noir & Kruse was issued on c.d. by Lifted Records (334 50881)
And in the U.K as a "Wings v's Loop Da Loop" mix on a limited edition 12" (12-WINDJ-002) backed with "Coming Up" (Linus Loves Mix).
Allegedly just 50 copies were pressed ?
Also a sample from Silly Love Songs was used (with permission) on Jenn Cuneta's Come Rain Come Shine in 2005.
