Little, Brown and Company
Text from interviews with Paul McCartney Text edited by Mark Lewisohn Art direction by Norman Hathaway From the breakup of the Beatles to the folding of Wings, from a business nightmare to a Tokyo jail, this companion to the Wingspan album and TV/video documentary traces ten years in the life of Paul McCartney.
This is an intimate scrapbook charting how the band grew and became one of the biggest-selling acts of the 70s. At the same time Paul and his wife Linda, a fellow band member, were raising a family, and the book is a personal record of the Wings' beginnings after the break-up of the world's most famous group through to the very end of that decade. Apart from the insight into the dynamics of a hugely popular band, it reminds the reader of some of the songs and how they were written, recorded and performed: 'Band on the Run', 'Mull of Kintyre', 'Maybe I'm Amazed', 'Jet' and 'Junior's Farm'.
