Paul McCartney Artist Snapshot:

Of all the Beatles, Paul McCartney was by far the most successful as a solo act. While many (including John Lennon) dismissed his post-Beatles output as lightweight pap, Paul's extraordinary popularity spoke for itself. "Mull of Kintyre" was for a time the most successful single ever. In the 1990s, McCartney (now a knight of the British Empire) tried his hand at classical composition and movies, while collaborating with admirers like Elvis Costello. Meanwhile, he continued to produce the kind of rock & roll he helped create, though without the kind of chart-topping success that he enjoyed in previous decades.

Product Notes

While his fellow ex-bandmates busied themselves with various high-profile projects (John Lennon with Imagine and a series of high-profile media events; George Harrison with All Things Must Pass and The Concert for Bangla Desh), Paul McCartney climbed into a van with his wife and a few journeyman players and gigged at university student unions for what amounted to spare change. Of course, by 1976 they were one of the biggest draws in rock, having the last laugh--if not necessarily the final word. Gathering the cream of their recorded output on a generous double-disc sampler-cum-TV-special-soundtrack seemed a promising effort at historical revisionism, but Wingspan itself is a distinct misnomer: fully 17 of the 40 tracks here hail from various pre- and post-Wings McCartney solo albums. Completely overlooked are unheralded B-sides such as "Oh Woman, Oh Why," "Little Woman Love," "Country Dreamer," "The Mess," "Walking in the Park with Eloise," "Sally G," and "Girl's School"--some of McCartney the bandleader and solo artist's scrappiest and most interesting work. All the expected hits are here and more, ranging from spunky rockers and hook-rich bubblegum to syrup-drenched ballads. What's lacking is a fresh and less myopic perspective. --Jerry McCulley
