Finest legacy DELUXE package I've seen

by bladerunner on 7/22/2013

This 4 book + 3 CD + DVD deluxe set is the best effort I've seen from a major label in 20 years, maybe 30 !! Absolutely top quality paper stock, binding, & publishing -- and NICE souvenir trinkets for the McCartney & Wings fanatics, like me. The re-mastering is a bit HOT, but an improvement over-all -- PLUS a 24-bit 96-kHz down-load. This has 3-1/2 times the information of a CD. VERY tastefully done, and of the HIGHEST quality -- CONGRATULATIONS to Hear Me / Universal music !! Read More

Photographer: Linda McCartney.
When McCartney formed Wings back in 1971, it was intended to be a touring unit as much as a recording one. After spending the latter half of his time with the Beatles confined to the studio, McCartney was itching to get back onto the road. By the time September 1975 rolled around, Wings' tours had been on the modest side. This latest one would last over a year and take the band around the world. The triple-album WINGS OVER AMERICA was recorded during this time and despite its heft, the performances within contained no filler and were bristling with energy from start to finish.
Wings' secret weapon was guitarist Jimmy McCulloch, an underrated musician whose playing lit up the opening medley of "Venus And Mars/Rock Show/Jet" and "Hi Hi Hi." Along with material from a mix of Wings albums, McCartney proudly revisited his past by dusting off latter-day Beatles songs which had previously been studio-only manifestations ("Lady Madonna," "Blackbird"). WINGS OVER AMERICA clearly showed that McCartney was the first Beatle to settle comfortably into touring regularly in addition to dealing well with his musical past.
