Band On The Run by Paul McCartney
Released: Dec 1973
Label: Hear Music
Paul's first two solo records were casual, under-rated charmers; his subsequent two LPs seemed lazy and formless. For Band on the Run, Paul took Denny Laine and his wife to Nigeria and holed up until they birthed this best-selling return to rock 'n' roll respectability. For once, Paul frontloads the LP with his best songs, so this opens with a 1-2-3 punch. The title track, the soaring "Jet" and the floating "Bluebird" all became instant rock classics. Nothing else tops those numbers, though "Let Me Roll It" stands up to any of Lennon's slow, sludgy rockers and "1985" is a sonic marvel. This edition adds the hit single "Helen Wheels" and a live TV concert performance.
