Paul McCartney Giving Us 82nd Birthday Gift with Rare Live Album Made in 1974


Paul McCartney has a gift for us on his 82nd birthday.

Come June 14th — four days early — McCartney will finally release the full album called “One Hand Clapping.”

This is a live record he recorded with Wings in August 1974 while “Band on the Run” topped the charts.

Some of the tracks have appeared as “filler” on extended versions of other re-released McCartney albums. But this is the first time it’s been made into one complete package.

There are various formats — CD, LP, etc — but none of them include the video made at the time by David Litchfield at the time. Presumably that footage — shot at Abbey Road Studios — will turn up in a massive Wings documentary being assembled for next year by Morgan Neville.
