Customer Review

on 30 May 2013
I'm a sucker for box sets but quite often I'm left feeling that a little more consideration could have been applied to the content. That's far from the case with the deluxe edition of the new Wings Over America reissue which is quite possibly the most impressive and engaging 'legacy' box set I've ever seen.

This is McCartney at the very top of his game, post-Beatles, performing with the finest Wings line-up. The slightly muddy sound of the original album has been brightened up just enough to make a positive difference, and the addition of a third disc with alternative selections from a show in San Francisco, plus a DVD containing a remastered update of the fascinating 'Wings Over The World' documentary make the collection an absolute must-have for any fan of Macca's challenging 1970s period.

But that's just the start. The printed matter that accompanies the discs is arguably worth the price of the set alone, especially the faux leather-bound portfolio containing faithful reproductions of tour itineraries, set design drawings, set list, ticket stubs, VIP passes, posters, tour programme, promo photos and, well, you name it, it's all there. Add another three beautiful volumes containing inspired journalism from David Fricke, intimate travelogue photography by Robert Ellis and Linda McCartney, and sketchbook art by Humphrey Ocean, and you have a truly lovingly assembled document that represents an iconic moment in concert history.

100% recommended.
