|Paul's twenty-fourth solo single.
Credited to "Wings"
This incarnation featuring : Paul, Linda, Denny Laine, Lawrence Juber and Steve Holly.
The LAST Wings single, and therefore the last release to feature the above line-up was declared as a double A-side.
Both tracks were taken from "Back To The Egg" which was dropping down the chart,
unfortunately this release did nothing to boost album sales, failing miserably in the chart.
The single was released in a picture sleeve.
The front cover featured a picture NOT designed with this record in mind ...
It was taken from a 1978 book entitled Work of Hipgnosis - Walk Away Renee, and was listed under "Unsold Ideas".
The rear picture was a still from the promotional film for "Baby's Request".
The label is once again a "fried egg", with no apparent record label name ... except a reference to MPL, and the Parlophone "R" type number.
Also below see a German Import of "Getting Closer", this I bought as it had a different B-side "Spin It On",
which had been on the U.K. B-side of "Old Siam Sir".
Also it had a picture cover in the style of "Old Siam Sir", with the fried egg taking pride of place on the outside.
I also show the label below, as it did NOT have the fried egg. The German catalogue number is 1C 006 - 62945.
