Product Description

Amazon.ca

If Paul will be remembered for anything post-Beatles, it's this album. Even though he had to go all over creation to record it, the trip was obviously worthwhile, bringing forth gems like "Helen Wheels," "Jet," and the title track. Everything was in place, the melodies, the pop smarts, and a real studio production. The amazement was that Wings actually consisted of Paul and Linda with guitarist Denny Laine; Paul played most everything on the record. Regardless, it was his return--finally--to greatness. --Chris Nickson

Product Description

Digitally remastered and expanded three disc (two CDs + DVD) edition of this 1973 album from the Rock 'n' Roll legend including a bonus CD containing nine rare tracks and a bonus DVD that features rare footage, music videos and behind the scenes features and the One Hand Clapping documentary. Band On The Run was released three short years after the Beatles' split and would become one of the biggest selling albums of Sir Paul's entire solo career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Collection! Nov. 8 2010
By Martin A Hogan TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
There are so many reissues on the market lately and Paul McCartney's "Band On The Run" is one of the latest, being offered in several different combinations. Considering that this was a #1 record breaking album and a real critical and commercial success for McCartney and Wings, it bears to get any great treatment. This version has the original album carefully remastered at Abbey Roads Studios without too much compression and not a complete removal of original album hiss, to truly produce a fine sounding, original recording that comes as close to vinyl as possible.

Although "Band On The Run" and Jet " were chosen for the singles, there is little doubt that every song qualified. Paul Gambaccini provides extensive sleeve notes about the recording including, Paul's history from leaving the Beatles and progressing to this album. Like the songs, this album is an adventure. The liner notes describe which songs were chosen and why, the songs history, the trip to record in Lagos, Nigeria and more. Want to know who those strangers on the cover really re? Paul G. fills you in.

The second CD contains the hit, "Helen Wheels" and "Country Dreamer", all sounding fantastic. The remaining seven songs are from a special called "One Hand Clapping" and although these are live recordings with slightly different arrangements, the sound quality is remarkably good. That brings us to the DVD or `bonus film". Remembering that this audio and video is over twenty-seven years old does not diminish the enjoyment or aesthetic quality. At a running time of 1 hour and 24+, minutes, there is a lot to celebrate. Most of the videos are artistic/psychedelic in nature and surprisingly, not as dated as one would think. Included are song videos, promos and the full version of the special, "One Hand Clapping".

4.0 out of 5 stars Remastering Sounds Great - DVD Could Be Better April 27 2011
By From the Musician's Pen TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Most people agree that this is a classic rock album, so I'm not going to spend time discussing the music itself. It's been released in various forms so I'll just be discussing this Collector's Edition, with 2 CD's and 1 DVD.

CD 1 is the remastered album; CD 2 is the bonus tracks, also remastered, including the single "Helen Wheels"; the DVD features footage from the album cover photo shoot, some videos for the songs, and a McCartney TV Special from the early 1970's with great footage of Wings rehearsing songs from this album, plus "Live & Let Die" and more... Paul's voice is immaculate, he's at a peak.

In terms of sound quality, the previously remastered version of this CD already sounded very good indeed. This remastering sounds even better.

I received this as a gift. I was hesitant to buy it, as I felt the price was high and I wasn't sure whether I'd like the bonus stuff enough to feel I "need" them. I'm a McCartney fan but I often feel cheated by his releases, and I wasn't willing to gamble.

With regards to this collection, I feel all the songs on the bonus CD could fit onto the main CD, which could help keep the price down. I also feel the only good thing on the DVD was the TV Special. I'd much rather see more footage of Wings, especially in concert (especially Wings Over America, Rockshow Concert For Kampuchea, etc.). This was Paul's peak and the footage exists and some has been previously released on VHS or laser disc, so I was hoping for more of that.

I've seen this go on sale for half price, and I'd recommend it then. If you don't already own "Band on the Run", this is a worthy purchase. Otherwise, only a big Wings fan would want to spend the extra money to upgrade to this version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Most Succesful of the Beatles March 29 2011
By TDN
Format:Audio CD
This group here Wings really hitting their stride and showing McCartney's talent to form a band that was clearly successful in it's own right. Though Paul may be it's main attraction he clearly created a group that was not really another Beatles but a band that was revelant for it's own time. The music though very mainsteam is certainly accessable. This gives us a taste of where they were going to the next level with Venus and Mars.

4.0 out of 5 stars The tightest Wing's arrangement of all time Feb. 19 2010
Format:LP Record
Paul McCartney put out some mediocre albums after the Beatles but finally got it together with this one. There is really no terrible cut on the album.

Deny Lane and the others work so well with him I don't know why they did not keep this lineup.
The classic "Band on the Run", "Jet" stand on their own, but this album also has some other lesser known gems such as "Helen Wheels", and "Blueburd".

It is truely a great album that stands the test of time.

The 180 gm vinyl remastered album gives it a very full and rich sound on a decent turntable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine Wings Album Jan. 17 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Band on the Run is in all probability the best album from McCartney and Wings. Looking back to the 1960s there are some memorable Beatles songs, say for example Taxman and Eleanor Rigby. However there is something special to me about Band on the Run. When I finally finished upper year calculus, I sat down and listened to the title track. Then much later with this special edition, I also watched the previously unreleased footage.
