Apart from the songs, listen to McCartney's bass playing on this record. On 'Time To Hide' for example. The rest of the band is also worthy of mention. Jimmy McCullough's solo on 'Maybe I'm Amazed' is inspired as is his solo track 'Medicine Jar' from the 'Venus And Mars' album from 1975. So much better than the album version, not least due again to McCartney's bass playing. Joe English's drumming is first class throughout. It was a major and noticeable disappointment when he quit the band the following year.
This is a not a nostalgia affair as all later McCartney concerts were to be, particularly those from the Flowers In The Dirt tour (1989) onwards. Not that those concerts didn't have their moments. They did. But this album remains the pinnacle of Paul's long career on the road. It showcases McCartney's band Wings at their creative and commercial peak, proving that at least One Ex Beatle went out with a live band and, at least for a short period anyway, was capable of Glorious Life After Death. Of The Beatles that is. With Lennon's death in 1980, most of this got forgotten somehow, but I record this opinion for the record. Historians, please take note! :-)
