 Band On The Run
I believe deep down that Band On The Run is a metal song, and the only thing that kept it from becoming a hard rock masterpiece is the fact that Paul McCartney just doesn't have the metal pipes needed to put it across.
He was telling me that his band used to play Auf Wiedersehen by Cheap Trick, and I said, "That song is metal." And he agreed, although of course he wouldn't have been playing that song if it were not metal.
Band On The Run is totally badass, and would be taken to its limit if placed in the capable hands of Iron Maiden.

He and his band were scheduled to record in Lagos, Nigeria in August 1973, but unknowingly had planned their visit during the country's hottest and rainiest season.
On the former, McCartney set out to prove that he could stand on his own in the wake of the Beatles, while the latter is simply a band out to overcome all the obstacles the world can throw at it.

The album is a great example of Macca's unmatchable talent for experimenting with conventional pop formats without losing sight of the rock 'n' roll routes that orginially sparked his talent and, in turn, in great music of the Beatles.
To call the album a 'concept' album would be erroneous, though 'a song cycle' might be an accurate description, particularly with the recapitulation of the 'Band on the Run' chorus at the end of the final track, 'Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five'.
Band on the Run is probably the best album/CD to date from Paul, and also the most consistently praised...

Denny was Paul’s primary creative foil throughout this period, and he was the only other member of Wings who had any talent beyond pure instrumental capabilities; Laine scored a hit with the Moody Blues in the Sixties via the excellent “Go Now”, and he provided some good tunes on the Wings albums as well.

Paul McCartney decided to put together a band shortly after Ram was recorded, so he found two lads by the name of Denny Seiwell (on drums) and Denny Laine (guitar), and formed the 70's group Wings.

The Wings first album turns out to be a major disappointment, as Wild Life is a fairly banal assortment of tunes, which mostly just end up sounding plain dumb.

Still, Sir Paul and his Wings were at their best when simply kicking back in party mode, as evidenced by a passel of good-natured rave-ups like "Hi, Hi, Hi" and a previously unreleased, Wild Life-era medley of "Bip Bop/Hey Diddle/I Am Your Singer" that, while not essential, earns plenty of points for charm alone.
Wingspan is available in a regular and a limited edition, both of which include a 24-page, five-color annotated booklet featuring rare photographs of the various Wings lineups, liner notes by Beatle-ologist Mark Lewisohn, and a personal introduction by McCartney.
Paul McCartney always got the short end of the stick when he was in the Beatles and again in the '70s, as he and his erstwhile partner John Lennon pursued solo careers.

In the process of remixing, it can be understandable that someone not familiar with the stereo mixdown might mix something way up or down relative to that tape....but to clip the first notes--that obviously--requires either ignorance, stupidity, or somebody's honest blunder, the sort of thing we don't wish to associate with professionals.....
