    Paul McCartney and Wings on the Run

    If you have enough money to buy the Deluxe Edition of Band on the Run, which is worth nearly $100.00, then you are lucky. This is Paul McCartney and Wings at its best album yet. The Deluxe Edition of Band on the Run is a beautiful black hardcover book. The Deluxe Edition included all of the photos and lyrics that was included in the original album, which you can sing along with it, plus never before released photos. I wish they should release the U.S. album version instead of the U.K. version. In the U.S. version, the song "Helen Wheels" was included in track 8 between the songs "No Words" and "Picasso's Last Words (Drink to Me)". Well, that's fine with me. The same people who remastered the Beatles Stereo and Mono Box Set did it again. They wanted to make sure that the remastered version of Band on the Run sounded much better than the original album that was released in 1973. When I heard the remastered album version of Band on the Run, it was like I am listening to a brand new songs from Paul McCartney and Wings all over again. The bonus discs, which was included in the 25th anniversary edition, is on Disc 3 of the deluxe edition. Paul McCartney wanted to let the music critics know that even though his last four albums: McCartney, Ram, Wild Life, and Red Rose Speedway were not his best albums,then Paul McCartney could tell the music critics to shut up. He wanted to prove the music critics that they were wrong. Band on the Run as it turned out was the best post-Beatles album. Whether he is a Beatle, a member of Wings, or a solo artist, he is one of the most famous and influential singer and songwriter of all time. Without Paul McCartney, the Beatles would never exist. Although Wings were Paul's band,they were a supergroup and a great band next to the Beatles. Wings were like the next Beatles or the second Beatles. Band on the Run is definitely one of my favorite Paul McCartney and Wings albums. I highly recommended it for Paul McCartney and Wings fans (like myself) to get the Deluxe edition of Band on the Run.
