Paul McCartney & Wings - 1979 - Last Flight (The Complete 1979 Glasgow Concert)

McCartney fans everywhere rejoiced when Paul announced plans for his 1989 - 90 World Tour. McCartney fever overtook the media who announced that this would be Paul's first series of live gigs since Wings celebrated 1975 - 76 World Tour.
The pundits seemed to forget that Wings undertook a nineteen date tour of the United Kingdom in the Winter of 1979.
After the Christmas holidays, the group reconvened for a charity performance, The Concerts For The People Of Kampuchea.
Last Flight is a 2CD set of the complete performance the final incarnation of Wings played at the Apollo Theatre in Glasgow, Scotland on December 17, 1979. These are the very tapes McCartney himself recorded for a possible live album of which only "Coming Up" has appeared. As a bonus are also included the Wings' tracks from the Concerts For The People Of Kampuchea LP.
The 1979 UK dates undoubtedly featured the most interesting and eclectic set list since Wings' 1972 European Tour. It offered a different perspective of McCartney's talents, by not relying heavily on the hits of yore. It proved to be his last attempt to distance himself and emphasize his merits as a solo performer, quite the opposite of the McCartney of today, ever anxious to reinforce his place in Beatle history.
