Tripping The Live Fantastic
Live - Paul McCartney / Parlophone / EMI
Album Release Date: 05.Nov.1990
Featuring 37 tracks (across two CDs) and spanning 30 years of rock and roll, Tripping The Live Fantastic was Paul's first official live album as a solo star. Its starting point, he says, was a simple one: “What we tried to do with this album was to give people a chance to take home with them a souvenir of the show; a better quality bootleg of what we hoped was just a good, fun, party night out.” As well as Paul and Linda, the road band by now included Paul “Wix” Wickens, Hamish Stuart, Robbie McIntosh and Chris Whitten. Interspersed with snippets from sound checks recorded around the world, the album was initially released as a double album, before being reissued as an abridged version called Tripping The Live Fantastic: Highlights!.
