Band On The Run: The Special Edition

The limited edition, remastered reissue of Band On The Run includes a bonus disc containing previously unreleased outtakes, soundcheck recordings and interviews.

One of McCartney's best, Band On The Run was recorded in Lagos, Nigeria under difficult circumstances (they worked in Ginger Baker's half-completed recording studio and the group's drummer Denny Seiwell canceled out at the last minute).

Between them, Laine and McCartney played most of the instruments, with McCartney taking over the vacant drummers' chair, while writing some of the best material of his life. The result was a consistent, mature album that yielded several big hits, including the title tune, "Jet" and, in the U.S., "Helen Wheels."
