This incarnation featuring : Paul, Linda, Denny Laine, Henry McCullough and Denny Seiwell.

Incredibly, Hi Hi Hi became the second Wings single in the space of a year to be banned by the B.B.C.
The reason given was that the lyrics were too suggestive. Radio stations therefore flipped the single and gave their air-time to C Moon.
Paul is said to have got the idea for C Moon from the Sam the Sham hit Wooly Bully, which included a
reference to L7 as being a symbol for being "square". So Paul made up C Moon which makes a circle (the opposite).

Once again no Apple logo in sight, the label being plain red.
