Band on the Run
'Jet' was the lead single from the Band on the Run in the UK and US. Although it is now considered one of Wings' best-known songs, at the time Paul had to be persuaded by Capitol Records to release it as single.
I remember at Band on the Run time there was this guy called Al Coury at Capitol who was their hot salesman. He rang me just after Band On The Run had come out, and it was starting to go back down the charts after its first week or so. He said, "You can’t let this happen... You've got to get it back up to the top, and 'Jet' has got to be the single". I hadn’t particularly spotted it but when he said it, I thought, "yeah that could work". Soon everyone knew 'Jet', so it sold the albumPaul
