Wings (2)

Profile:
This band was a successful endeavour for ex-Beatle Paul McCartney. From its inception in late 1971 the line-up of "Wings" often changed over the years, but retained its core members:
Denny Laine (formerly of The Moody Blues) on guitar and vocals
Linda McCartney on keyboards and vocals
• Paul McCartney on guitar and vocals.
Other members of the band included drummer Denny Seiwell (1971-1973), ex-Spooky Tooth guitarist Henry McCullough (1972-1973), blues guitarist Jimmy McCulloch (1974-1977), drummer Geoff Britton (1974), drummer Joe English (1975-1977), guitarist Laurence Juber and drummer Steve Holly (both 1978-1979).

Whilst "Wings" was primarily McCartney's band (for a while playing under the moniker "Paul McCartney & Wings"), it was truly a collaborative effort, with all members of the band sharing a hand in songwriting and vocals - with Laine even taking lead vocals from time to time.

"Wings" enjoyed consistent critical and commercial success with almost every release, most notably with 1977's "Mull of Kintyre" which still is nestled comfortably in the top 10 list of the U.K.'s all time best selling singles.

Do any of you McCartney and Wings fan know what other 1970's shows besides the Glasgow 1979 concert is perfect in sound quality? I know there are a lot of audience recordings of the very early wings shows as well as the last tour but I cant find any soundboard recordings....... one would think some soundman somewhere would have recorded the show for himself or posterity if nothing else !!!! Surely more exist out there besides Glasgow?
