Detail : Paul's nineteenth solo single.
Credited to "Wings"
This incarnation featuring : Paul, Linda, Denny Laine, Jimmy McCulloch and Joe English.

Released to promote the forthcoming new album (due one week later) "London Town",
this record actually sold a lot more copies than many of Paul's earlier releases.

The A-side was written in Scotland, originally recorded in the Virgin Islands on a yacht called the Fair Carol which had a 24-track recording studio installed ! ... and then finished off back in London.
After returning to London from the Virgin Island sessions, Jimmy and Joe left the group, once again leaving "Wings" as a trio, and the B-side was recorded at this time with Paul on drums.

The single was not released in a picture sleeve, and has Tower Bridge from London Town on the record labels,
although the front side is in colour and the B-side is a very slightly different shot, in black-and-white.
The run-out groove has, "A NICK W CUT" on the A-side, and "Made in Germany".

There is also a rare promo of "With A Little Luck", which has an edited version of the A-side and a demo version of the B-side ! ... this is worth more to collectors.
