5.0 out of 5 stars The Best McCartney Live Recordings 6 Mar 2001
Format:Audio CD
In the mid seventies, Paul McCartney backed by the most accomplished Wings line up took to the road to give epic performances across the world. I was lucky enough to see this tour in Newcastle Upon Tyne's City hall and it stands out as one of the best gigs I have ever seen. Drummer Joe English once told me that the band took three jets with them around the world. One jet was for the band and friends, one was for journalists and hangers on and the third jet was simply there in case they needed another jet. A huge expensive tour produced a huge exciting album that captures McCartney at his best, live in front of an adoring crowd and boy does he know how to work them up to a frenzy.
From the opening chords of Rock Show which sets the scene and creates plenty of anticipation through to the rock'n'rolling Soily which closes the set, this live performance had everything. Classic Beatles tracks like Long And Winding Road, Yesterday and Lady Madonna give it perspective but Wings themselves had enough classy songs to draw on.
The beautiful balladry of My Love, Blubird and Maybe I'm Amazed, the pure pop of Listen To What The Man Said and Silly Love Songs as well as some of their finest moments - Jet and Band On The Run give the whole album a sense of a non stop musical rollercoaster, full of surprises and changes of tempo. McCartney even gives Denny Laine the chance to resurrect his rendition of Go Now which he originally performed with the Moody Blues.
Never a dull moment, Wings Over America was culled from countless concerts across that continent with one of the band's sound men keeping tabs on the quality of each set as the band recorded performance after performance so Wings Over America is the cream of Wings live performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars McCartney's Best Concert.....Easily! 27 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is McCartney's Tour De Force Live In Concert highlight of a long career. And that was as true in 1976 as it is now. For while McCartney has done numerous tours since, mostly to great acclaim, it is here that we find Paul at the peak of his solo career, producing a concert where the Beatle numbers did not overshadow the solo material. For one good reason. The Wings songs here stand on their own here. McCartney was the only Ex Beatle who was able to do a world tour which achieved this remarkable feat. The Beatles songs on display here are wonderful of course. But the real highlights of this concert are the post Beatles McCartney classics: 'Live And Let Die', 'Bluebird', 'Let Me Roll It', 'My Love', ' Listen To What The Man Said', 'Let 'Em In', 'Beware My Love', 'Venus And Mars' to name but eight. This was a concert by a band at the height of their powers, quite possibly the biggest commercial attraction of the time, 1976. Although Abba were to eclipse Wings in the late '70s, but that's no bad thing. Bjorn and Benny were massive Beatles fans and it is fitting that the mantle should have passed into such classy hands.
Apart from the songs, listen to McCartney's bass playing on this record. On 'Time To Hide' for example. The rest of the band is also worthy of mention. Jimmy McCullough's solo on 'Maybe I'm Amazed' is inspired as is his solo track 'Medicine Jar' from the 'Venus And Mars' album from 1975. So much better than the album version, not least due again to McCartney's bass playing. Joe English's drumming is first class throughout. It was a major and noticeable disappointment when he quit the band the following year.
This is a not a nostalgia affair as all later McCartney concerts were to be, particularly those from the Flowers In The Dirt tour (1989) onwards.

By Stephen Reid TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Unlike other reviewers I have waited until I have the remastered recordings before writing a review. This is therefore a review based on the two-CD version of this excellent set.

The first thing to note is that there is little `added value' in the two CD package other than the remastered sound. No bonus tracks, no extra printed material or history notes. There is a massively expensive version with a lot of extra material but, committed fan though I am, I am not able to justify that price. So for me it's the two CD version, which comes packaged in a cardboard gatefold sleeve with a small booklet that details the usual track listings and composer credits. A bit disappointing but OK, it's the music that counts.

And the good news is that the music is very good, made even better by the remastering. It is quite remarkable that after a few years of existence, Wings had enough material to fill a triple LP set (OK, a few Beatles numbers to satisfy the audiences too). And the material they had ... look at the playlist and it would grace any Macca set today. By the mid seventies he had produced a catalogue of solo / Wings material that would stand the test of time.

Of course, Wings were not to know that at the time. They were promoting some of this material live for the first time and therefore had to present it as well as they could. Thankfully, they were a strong and accomplished line-up (probably the strongest of their incarnations) and their playing was first rate. The recordings were augmented with studio-based `improvements' but that is forgivable - the odd flat note in a live performance goes unremarked by the audience: preserved for posterity on record and it can come to grate.
