Band on the Run is genius. The songs range from VERY GOOD to exquisit. The lyrics and melodies are fun, whimsical and clever. This album has been critisized in the past for not being deep. Who cares! Music does not have to be deep to be fabulous. IT'S ART. NOT A SELF HELP LESSON. This one is an adventure in being fully entertained. Marie Buffington

The remastered and expanded edition of Band on the Run is fantastic. The original album is there, along with a second CD full of bonus tracks and interviews. The only problem with the package is the case is too big to fit in a CD holder.

this limited edition album was one that i couldn't wait to pick up. I listened to it with my friend Jim Carroll of Battle Creek. He is not a beatles fan and really enjoyed listening to the cd with me. The background information was great and it sounded better than ever

Anybody reading this likes this album anyway, so let's cut to the chase: The cover art is a tremendous lure. James Coburn and Christopher Lee, one an action hero/comic actor and one a horror movie icon, find themselves in the spotlight of a police dragnet with Paul and Wings. The picture is a big surprise and funny because it is so out of the blue. It's a good, hard-driving record, too.

Band On The Run is certainly Paul's best post Beatles album and as such most of these songs are very familiar but they are best heard in the context of the album. It is rather odd that, so far, all attempts to make a greatest hits album of Paul's work has ended with a very unsatisfying result but put back into the context of their original album these songs come vibrantly alive. This anniversary edition is very nice. The original album has never sounded better and the second CD, which is mostly interviews on the making of the album (with a couple of rare cuts), is more interesting and fun than I expected it to be (although I doubt if its a CD thats going to be played very often). The nice thing is that they have put a very reasonable price on this set. On a personal note: James Coburn was always a favorite actor (who is on the cover) and its hard to know that we'll never have another movie from him, but I can always watch "The Presidents Analyst" when I need a good laugh.

This is a fantastic re-release of a fantastic set of numbers. It is a must have. WHO CARES IF THE CASE DOES NOT FIT A CD CARRIER! Those of us oldies appreciate the old, multi Lp box look. BUY IT! AND ENJOY IT!

Brings back some memories and manages to remind me how great McCartney was (and still is - I guess)and what a great time that was. So sad now that there's only two Beatles left, all the more reason to listen to Band On The Run again and again and again. Helen Wheels and 1984 ROCK!!! All new artists would do well to add this album to their collection.

Paul was at the height of the wings career now. Band on the run, the song, was a song with three styles wonderfully etched into one song, just like the album.

I'm a huge Beatles fan, and Abbey Road, Magical Mystery Tour and The White Album are in my top ten of all-time. And I love Imagine, Plastic Ono Band and All Things Must Pass. But unfortunately, no matter how many times I've played it, I just don't love Band On The Run. In fact, to be honest, I don't care that much for Paul's solo music as I used to, though he has had some great albums. There are some cuts on here I really enjoy ("Jet" for one) but there are also some cuts that I just can't STAND ("Mrs. Vanderbilt" and "Picasso's Lost Words"). But I do have give the album credit for the fact that it was recorded in Nigeria (this was more than 10 years before Peter Gabriel, Paul Simon or Sting found their influences there!) and, since two members of Wings quit before the sessions, Paul handles most of the instruments himself, including the drums. So, all in all, Band On The Run is not Paul McCartney's best solo album, but it's MUCH better than Wings At The Speed of Sound and McCartney II.
