Classic Albums Paul McCartney and Wings - Band On The Run



Over six million copies sold. Even John Lennon said it was 'a great album.'
 "Paul makes a Linda assisted album solo album, also featuring Denny Laine - and finds that the stars have aligned to produce his defining 70's achievement." Mojo
"'s driven with an immense energy and enthusiasm, McCartney playing almost everything from the drums upwards. There is, in short, nothing bad about Band On The Run. We must all own it..." Q
 "...with the possible exception of John Lennon's Plastic Ono Band, the finest record yet released by any of the four musicians who were once called the Beatles." Rolling Stone  
 "From the iridescent guitar twang and luxurious ride cymbal groove of the intro to the apocalyptic climax of 1985 - delightfully undermined by an irreverent sing-a-long reprise of the title track's refrain - Band On The Run has a tangible vibe about it." Mojo
