Album Review

Released in 1978 after London Town gave McCartney another huge hit, Wings Greatest rounds up McCartney's greatest hits from 1971 to 1978 — which means it skips "Maybe I'm Amazed" but touches on Ram. The main strength of this collection is that it contains many hits that never appeared on any album, and these are among McCartney's very best non-Beatle singles: the eccentric domesticity of "Another Day," the choogling rocker "Junior's Farm," the Bond anthem "Live and Let Die," the piledriving "Hi Hi Hi," and "Mull of Kintyre," a Scottish-styled folk ballad that was his biggest hit in England. And yes, it's fair to peg these as McCartney successes, since some of them were billed as McCartney, not Wings, and as such, this record is a great overview of McCartney's first decade of solo recording, containing many of his very best solo tunes. One consumer warning: Much of this overlaps with 1988's All the Best (both the U.S. and U.K. editions), which is more comprehensive for the listener looking for a more complete retrospective.

What can you say? A great compilation of McCartney and Wings most memorable hits. Each song is just perfect, from Linda's haunting backing vocal on "My Love", to the anthem, Mull of Kintyre. Love Wings! Never get tired of these songs. Great memories.
