|U.K. Album Chart Detail :||
|Detail :||Paul's seventeenth "solo" album release ... second greatest hits collection, and first double album (20 tracks).
Although the previous collection was credited as "Wings" greatest, this has most of the same tracks. Just three tracks were on the previous hits album and are not included here; "Juniors Farm", "Uncle Albert", and "Hi Hi Hi".
I have listed below the composer credits and track credits as per the album ... but there are some bizarre changes from previous references. For example, "Maybe I`m Amazed" is credited to Wings and dated 1976 as though it were the live version from "Wings Over America", but it is not, it IS the 1970 solo original. Plus there are some obvious composer changes.
Oddly (very oddly considering it's now 1987), the C.D. has LESS tracks than the double album, leaving out;
As you can tell from the catalogue number this was a T.V. advertised album, which first appears our T.V. screens on the day of release in the break during "Coronation Street". The ad was directed by Derek Hayes.
The cover of the album is terrific with lots of pictures and references to all of Paul's earlier solo works. The art
direction and design is by Michael Ross, with the cover photography by Tim O'Sullivan.
I've no idea why, but in March 2008 this album showed slightly in the album chart .. no other McCartney albums showed at that time.
