McCartney to re-release 'Wings over America'

If Paul McCartney's 1976 live album with Wings is in regular rotation for you, make note of May 28.

That's when the record, "Wings over America," will be re-released with bonus material.

A deluxe edition box set will include a remastered, two-disc version of "Wings over America," a bonus audio disc that was recorded at San Francisco's Cow Palace, and a DVD of the TV special "Wings over the World." The box set also includes a commemorative tour book and four art books that showcase photos and memorabilia from their trek.

Ahead of the deluxe edition's release, the live concert film "Rockshow," which featured the band's 1975 and 1976 "Wings over the World" tour, will open for one night only in various locations around the globe on May 15. If you can't make it (or can't find a screening in your area), a DVD of the film will be released on June 11.

    Im a fan but "bonus material" usually means 'half-baked ideas that were too sh^tty to put on the original recordings.

    During the 1970's I was rocking the house to the beat of Lawrence Welk. His band ruled !

      I still LOOOOOVE The Monkees. Their car was so cool. Kind of a GTO station wagon. Plus they were silly. Silly is good. And happy. And cheerful. Silly is good. 🙂

    I really like Paul McCartney. Did when I was young and still do. He was my favorite Beatle. He always seemed nice.

    Reminds me of the old joke:
    What's the difference between the Beatles and N'Synch?

    Thirty odd years.

      That was a stupid comment. Let's see. Paul is the richest British rocker at 1.05 billion dollars. N'synch where are they? They were a stupid boy band. You are an idiot.

  17. Kansas City Hot Plate ...

    is when one person holds a see-through plate or bowl on their face while the other person squats over them and takes a huge, steaming poop onto it. It's reallly quite a turn-on.

    Ouch – never respond/write comments on these threads, but you leave me no choice. Obviously you did too much or not enough in the 70's and beyond. Venus & Mars – great album, Band on the Run – great album, Flaming Pie – wonderful tribute. This guy has created so much incredible music for all of us...shame on you.

    This album wasn't any good in 1978. Why does he think it will be better now? All of the songs on it stink. Without The Beatles he is a big ol zero. In the 1970's we made fun of people that liked his crappy Wings band. Even the "Band on the Run" is crappy. Just easy listening elevator music.

      Agreed. 10,000 percent agreed.

      and we made fun of people like you who did not know good music when you heard it. you were probably to busy popping acid and listening to the god awful greatfull dead to know what good music was.

      Nance and metalhead65 and Jem – you ALL don't know great music when you hear it (the grateful dead were amazing as well). Paul McCartney post-Beatles was still great......until Silly Love Songs came out..............

      Regardless of one's opinion of good or bad music, enough people bought his albums, that he still has more money than everyone here; so he must have done something right.
