Album Notes and Credits
This deluxe edition of BAND ON THE RUN contains the original album with superbly remastered sound, a detailed booklet, and a bonus disc that features dialogue from and interviews with the band, as well as some live recordings and alternate takes of songs from the album. Includes original album artwork, song lyrics, and a color photo insert in a deluxe slipcase.
Paul McCartney/Paul McCartney & Wings: Paul McCartney (vocals, guitar, keyboards, bass instrument, drums); Denny Laine (guitar, percussion, background vocals); Linda McCartney (keyboards, background vocals).
Additional personnel: Howie Casey (saxophone).
Neither the rustic Wild Life nor the slick AOR flourishes of Red Rose Speedway earned Paul McCartney much respect, so he made the self-consciously ambitious Band on the Run partially to rebuke his critics. On the surface, Band on the Run appears to be constructed as a song cycle in the vein of Abbey Road, but subsequent listens reveal that there are only passing similarities between the two albums. Some of this is quite showy, particularly the whimsical mini-suite of the title track and the surging surrealism of "Jet," but some of the most enduring moments are simpler, like the sunny acoustic "Bluebird" and rocking, rolling "Helen Wheels." Sometimes McCartney's whimsy is a little strong, but song for song Band on the Run is always enjoyable, whether McCartney is running through "Picasso's Last Words" or responding to John Lennon's "How Do You Sleep" taunts with "Let Me Roll It." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Q (6/00, p.64) - Ranked #75 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums" - "...A joyous, moving, occasionally daft album, a transatlantic chart-topper which sold over 6 million..."
CMJ (3/20/00, p.28) - "...Even Lennon once called it 'a great album'. Its multi-faceted big-band rock has withstood the test of time, posturing firm like an iceberg of creative brilliance..."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.123) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[The songs] remain some of McCartney's deftest pop creations, none more so than the irresistible, three-part drama of the title track..."
Mojo (Publisher) (7/01, p.64) - "...Acclaimed as Wings' finest...and the title track is unquestionably fine..."
Record Collector (magazine) (p.87) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he album saw the long-overdue return of Paul's creative focus, from the urgency of 'Jet' to the subtle jazz of 'Bluebird'..."
Uncut (magazine) (p.98) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "BAND ON THE RUN is still magisterial, for its melodies, invention and sheer confidence....Genuinely great."
