Watch out! There's a new edition about to be released...,
This review is from: Wings Over America (Audio CD)
This is a fabulous album, one of the few live releases that really captures the times, the atmosphere and performances perfectly. Watch out if you're reading this before May 27th 2013, though, there's a new remastered edition about to be released, which, unusually for Amazon doesn't yet link up with this one. This is the version to get: Wings Over America (Well, alright, I'm assuming that this is a clearer, crisper version than ever before but this is based on my experience of other McCartney / Beatles remasters, which have been head and shoulders above previous releases).

The OLD CD version sounds muffled. I cannot recommend it. I'm glad I bought it before it went out of print, and prices rose. Disappointing even for six pounds. You'd be better off with the original vinyl.
It was left out of the 1993 EMI remaster series, more's the pity. I thought they were very good transfers. In fact I prefer the sound of the 1993 'Band on the Run' CD to the 2010 one, although the newer one is good.
I trust that the May 2013 'Wings Over America' will be a big improvement on what has gone before.
