'Band on the Run's' Best New Bonus Feature

Band on the Run was re-released last week in multiple formats, including digital downloads, a vinyl LP, and three different CD sets. Make sure you at least get a hold of the awesome “special” or “deluxe” editions. They contain a DVD that includes music videos and a look behind-the-scenes, but the real highlight is the “One Hand Clapping” segment.

Featuring live renditions of Wings hits performed at Abbey Road studios, the 1974 potential TV special has only been available through bootlegs and YouTube clips. Fans speculate that it was filmed to promote a world tour that never materialized and was shelved when drummer Geoff Britton left the group.

Here are two highlights: the rousing little-known Wings rocker “Soily” and the literally bouncy Tin Pan Alley-esque “I’ll Give You a Ring”. That’s one of the many reasons I adore Paul McCartney & Wings, their variety!
