WINGS & PAUL MCCARTNEY: WILD LIFE

WINGS & PAUL MCCARTNEY: WILD LIFE

*2CD, 2LP, and Limited Deluxe Edition (3CD + 1DVD) available

Wild Life is the debut album by Wings and the third studio album by Paul McCartney since the breakup of the Beatles. The album was recorded during July & August 1971 at Abbey Road Studios by McCartney and his wife Linda along with session drummer Denny Seiwell, whom they had worked with on the previous album, Ram, and Denny Laine, formerly of the Moody Blues. It was released by Apple Records on 7 December, in both the UK and US, to lukewarm critical and commercial reaction. In July 1971, with a fresh set of McCartney tunes, the newly formed Wings recorded the album in slightly more than a week with the mindset that it had to be instant and raw in order to capture the freshness and vitality of a live studio recording. Five of the eight songs were recorded in one take.

The 2LP features the original album remastered at Abbey Road Studios on LP 1 and bonus audio of singles, B-sides and previously unreleased tracks on LP 2. This edition is pressed onto 180gram vinyl x2 and comes housed in a retro style ‘tip on’ gatefold with a 12-page 10” booklet

The four-disc (3CD + 1DVD) limited deluxe edition of Wild Lifefeatures the full album remastered at Abbey Road Studios plus 25 bonus audio tracks including rough mixes of the album, original single edits, B-sides, home recordings and other previously unreleased material across three CDs. The set’s DVD features rare footage of acoustic home videos, rehearsals and more. The Wild Life deluxe package includes a 128-page book written by David Fricke telling the story behind the album – including track-by-track information and new interviews with Paul and key album personnel, a 48-page scrapbook of tour diaries, lyrics and set lists, unpublished Polaroids, lyrics, notes and memorabilia from the MPL archives.
