In 1975 and 1976 Paul McCartney and Wings undertook the epic Wings over the World tour, the largest scale tour they would ever undertake as a band. From this tour came both the legendary "Wings over America" triple live album and the concert film "Rockshow". Although filmed on this tour at the enormous Kingdome in Seattle, "Rockshow", originally a cut down version of the concert, was not premiered until November 1980 in New York and April 1981 in London. It was released on Betamax and later on laserdisc

Paul’s fifth album since the break up of The Beatles, Band on the Run was made under difficult circumstances: band members Denny Seiwell and Henry McCullough left before recordings began in Lagos, Nigeria – which itself proved a challenging environment to work in. Despite the setbacks, Paul, Linda and Denny Laine persevered and Band on the Run – complete with its famous celebrity-packed cover art – proved a triumph.

It marked the fifth album by Paul McCartney since his departure from the Beatles in April 1970. Although sales were modest initially, its commercial performance was aided by two hit singles – Jet and Band on the Run – such that it became the top-selling studio album of 1974 in the United Kingdom and Australia, in addition to revitalising McCartney’s critical standing. It remains McCartney’s most successful album and the most celebrated of his post-Beatles works. Several of the songs on Band on the Run reflect themes of escape and freedom, while the structure of the album recalled the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road.

Band on the Run" is the title song of Paul McCartney and Wings' 1973 album Band on the Run. The song was released as a single in 1974, following the success of "Jet", and became an international chart success. The song topped the charts in the United States, also reaching number 3 in the United Kingdom. The single sold over one million copies in 1974 in America. It has since become one of the band's most famous songs.

Band on the Run is generally considered to be Paul McCartney's strongest solo effort. The album was also his most commercially successful, selling well and spawning two hit singles, the multi-part pop suite of the title track and the roaring rocker "Jet. On these cuts and elsewhere, McCartney's penchant for sophisticated, nuanced arrangements and irrepressibly catchy melodic hooks is up to the caliber he displayed in the Beatles, far surpassing the first two Wings releases, Wild Life and Red Rose Speedway.

Band on the Run is an album by the British rock group Paul McCartney & Wings. Band on the Run is considered the best album that Paul McCartney has made after his Beatles-period. It is also often referred to as the best album that was created by one of the Beatles. So Jon Landau described the album in Rolling Stone (issue 153) as "the finest record yet released by any of the four musicians who were once called The Beatles".

Band on the Run (оригинал Paul McCartney). Банда в бегах (перевод Rust из Москвы). Stuck inside these four walls. And a bell was ringing in the village square. Зря он бил в набат и старался зря -. For the rabbi's on the run. Зайцев не догонит звон. Band on the run. Банда в бегах, Band on the run. Банда в бегах. And the jailer man and sailor sam.

Also on the bonus disc: an acoustic Band on the Run, a soundcheck of Jet, rehearsal recordings, alternate mixes and an unreleased song. Band On The Run is considered by many to be Paul's (and Wings) best album. It's definitly one of his best with a number of great songs - The classic "Jet","Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five", "Mrs. Vanderbilt","Let Me Roll It" and especially the iconic title track, "BOTR". I highly recommend it to newbies or fans who want to upgrade to a better sounding version.

Absolutely nothing beats a clean copy of this pressing! Nothing!! Tried em all and this one wins hands down. As a matter of fact, my 1st U.K. Ram is the best for that lp as well.
Burilar
Look no further than this pressing! It has a warm, full sound. Perfect tonal balance.

“Band On The Run” was McCartney’s full return to critical and commercial prominence. After being punished for his ill preceived breakup of “The Beatles”, and several critically panned albums, he somehow managed to strike the right balance, finally scoring high with the critics, and on the charts (the album had no less than four hit singles helping to sustain it’s longevity, while making many a rebound to #1-it remains Paul’s sole “blockbuster”). The undeserved complaints about his debut were that it is was too simple, incomplete sounding, and sketch-like, etc...the resounding sentiment was, “He broke up the Beatles for this?”, but “McCartney” was just that, simple..., a back to basics, very revealing look at how the man wrote, played, constructed, and fine tuned “his own” music, the “McCartney Template” if you will. Misunderstood and underrated, his work was almost entirely written off as junk, except for “Maybe I’m Amazed”. Obliged, Paul rammed on, but “Ram” was also poorly received, Paul (and Linda) tried to answer and accommodate for what the naysayers said “McCartney” was not. The music was rich and imaginative on his sophomore effort, and the melodies changed on a dime, “Ram” was anything but lazy, his most “Beatles like” solo offering, and in my opinion, it is his and Linda’s mini-masterpiece. Two more critically panned albums came in quick succession with his newly formed band “Wings”...enter “Band On The Run”, a record that almost never happened...Truly a musical genius beyond any critic’s bias, it is only as of late that Paul’s work on “McCartney” & “Ram”, together with “Band...”, have been praised and recognized for what they represent, the culmination and evidence of a young man that was “The Mastermind” behind the biggest band in “Rock Music History”. McCartney was still brimming when the Beatles fell apart-obviously he had a lot of ideas still, or at least a few more good tricks up his sleeve to dazzle listeners and record buyers, for not only is he a musical genius, but a bewildering musical magician. From 70’ to 75’, had “The Beatles” stayed together, McCartney’s music alone could have sustained them, and that is the truth. John was losing his bite by 73’, and was certainly ready to take a break by 75’, Ringo had had his run of two back to back commercially successful albums by 74’, mostly with a little help from his friends, and George had blown his wad with the massive “All Things Must Pass” (which could have been two great albums really), after that, he too seemed to be running out of ideas, and by 74’, he fell victim to his own major falling out with the critics. McCartney’s daring quest for musical adventures were just getting started still, and they brought him well into the next decade, with “Wings” basically still at it’s commercial peak in 76’.
