Give My Regards to Broad Street is the title of Paul McCartney's soundtrack album to his self-written film, both released in 1984. Following up the twin successes of Tug of War and Pipes of Peace, Give My Regards to Broad Street proved to be a financial disaster as a film, but garnered McCartney another hit album.

The Film

Starring McCartney, his wife Linda, Ringo Starr and his wife Barbara Bach, as well as Bryan Brown, Ralph Richardson, and Tracey Ullman, the film details a day in the life of McCartney (somewhat like The Beatles' A Hard Day's Night). The master tapes to McCartney's new album are suspected of being stolen by an employee with a shady past (who has also disappeared), and amid much searching (and music), the tapes are found in the possession of the man in question, who accidentally locks himself in shed in a railway station. Both are discovered—of course—by McCartney. After a sensational media build-up, the film—with its less-than-exciting plot—was savaged by critics upon its November unveiling and Give My Regards to Broad Street ended up as one of 1984's most notable cinematic flops.Despite the film being a flop,No More Lonely Nights was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and a BAFTAFilm Award for Best Original Song-Motion Picture.The movie was also snubbed by the Razzies.

The Album

Preceded by "No More Lonely Nights (Ballad)", a worldwide Top 10 smash featuring blistering David Gilmour guitar work, Give My Regards to Broad Street entered the UK charts at #1, while going gold with a #21 peak in the US (selling under expectations there). It would also mark the end of McCartney's brief alliance with Columbia Records in the US, which had started with the final Wings album Back to the Egg in 1979. McCartney would re-sign with EMI worldwide (where he remains) with his Columbia output reverting back to his new—and original—label in the US.

The majority of the album - which is sequenced in the order of the songs' appearance in the film - features re-interpretations of many of his past Beatles and Wings classics: "Good Day Sunshine", Yesterday, "Here, There and Everywhere", "Silly Love Songs", "For No One", "Eleanor Rigby" and "The Long And Winding Road" (without the heavy strings courtesy of Phil Spector that McCartney had so loathed in 1970). Besides "No More Lonely Nights" (also heard in a dance version), the only previously-unheard tracks were "Not Such A Bad Boy", "No Values" and a symphonic extension of "Eleanor Rigby" entitled "Eleanor's Dream". The scope of the album was so immense that when it saw release that October, its vinyl issue had specially edited versions of its songs. The cassette and the later CD edition preserved the tracks' full lengths, while the CD went one further by including a bonus 1940's-styled piece called "Goodnight Princess". The Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 as part of their first tour of the United States, promoting their first hit single there, I Want To Hold Your Hand. ...

While Give My Regards to Broad Street may not rank as McCartney's most memorable project, many McCartney fans deem it to have its virtues and a worthwhile experience.


In November, simultaneously with the film's premiere, McCartney's Rupert Bear recording, "We All Stand Together", started back in 1980, was released and became an enormous hit single in the UK, reaching #3, and was credited to "Paul McCartney and the Frog Chorus".

Give My Regards To Broad Street (1984) (1276 words)
Like I noted earlier, I’ve been virtually a lifelong fan of the man. He remains my favorite Beatle and I’ll always be in the tank for him.
Give My Regards to Broad Street appears in both an aspect ratio of approximately 1.85:1 and in a fullscreen version on this double-sided, single-layered DVD; the widescreen image has been enhanced for 16X9 televisions.
Overall, Regards was watchable and fairly attractive, but it remained pretty average.
