About this album

This was the final album to be released by Wings. Although it does not share the same success as some of the earlier Paul McCartney and Wings albums like Band on the Run or Venus and Mars, it is a must for fans of Paul McCartney and Wings. It is basically a concept album designed to show Wings versatility and ability to bounce back. Perhaps the album landed in a obscure area because just as the world tour to support this album was canceled due to Paul being arrested for possession in Japan where the tour was to begin. Instead McCartney spent nine days in jail, and as a result it was the end of Wings. Back to the Egg is a solid effort by McCartney with his normal mixture of soft love songs and hard rocking fun. The times were changing when it was released with the popularity of disco and new wave music taking over the spotlight, which McCartney addressed well on McCartney II. In this writer’s opinion, Back to the Egg is one of the best Wings albums that can be listened to in its entirety without skipping a song. After all it is the final album of a group that had a lot of success during the decade of the 1970s. Paul’s bass lead opens the album in Reception which is followed of by a rocking love song in Getting Closer. Denny Lane contributes Again and Again then Paul rocks on Old Siam, Sir. Arrow Through Me takes the record back down to a good old Mecca love song. Pete Townsend contributes on Rockestra Theme and there is much more.
