Band on the Run is generally considered Paul McCartney's strongest post-Beatles 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 calibre he displayed in the Beatles, far surpassing the first two Wings releases Wildlife and Red Rose Speedway. The album has the majestic, orchestral sweep of McCartney's Abbey Road-era ambition,with a wide range of style-dabbling, from the swaying, acoustic jazz-pop of "Bluebird" to the appealing, straightforward rock of "Helen Wheels" to the wiry blues of "Let Me Roll It" to the swaying, one-off pub singalong "Picasso's Last Words (Drink to Me)").
This version of Band on the Run features the original album newly remastered at Abbey Road studios, along with a 16-page booklet presented in digipack packaging.
