"Wingspan" 2-CD Set

The "Wingspan" CD set features 40 songs, including 17 hits that sold more than a million copies each; 2 hours of McCartney music on a double CD that's priced like a single album.

"Wingspan" is the soundtrack of how Paul McCartney dared to follow the Beatles with Wings in the '70s. Formed with his wife Linda, Wings were an initially back-to-basics band that rose to become one of the biggest selling acts of the era.

"Wingspan" was timed to launch in tandem with a two-hour film of the same title on ABC-TV that tells the intimate inside story of Wings. It reveals how Paul and Linda tried to raise a young family and front a new band against the handicaps of battling the Beatles, pot busts by police and bans by the BBC.

Despite setting themselves the hardest job in rock & roll, in the space of nine years, Wings soared to international success with 17 million-seller singles, five U.S. number 1 albums and eventually a U.S. stadium show that broke the Beatles' attendance record.

The 2-CD "Wingspan" album totals 151 minutes of music.
