Recording

[
edit

Originally,
Wings over America
was to exist a two-record set of highlight performances, merely this was rethought due to the success of a homemade titled
Wings from the Wings, which was released as a triple tape set on red, white, and blueish vinyl, and contained the entire 23 June 1976 concert recorded at
The Forum
in Los Angeles.
[2]

This acquired McCartney to release the album as a iii-tape set, compiled from various shows from the band’s North American tour during May–June 1976. McCartney’due south sound engineer listened to 800 hours of record and selected the five best performances of each vocal from the 30-song gear up list.
[3]

McCartney chose and mixed the final fix of recordings, mostly taken from the 23 June prove.
[one]

Soily” was recorded on vii June 1976 at
McNichols Sports Arena
in Denver.
[4]

The live recordings then received studio overdubs during Oct–Nov 1976.
[5]

Co-ordinate to Wings drummer
Joe English language, “it took forever to get those ‘Wings over America’ tapes set for the live album. We had to go into the studio and overdub well-nigh of the bankroll vocals.”

[21]

peaking at number ten on the

Hot 100

in the United states of america, and at number 28 on the United kingdom of great britain and northern ireland chart.
[22]

In a retrospective review,
AllMusic
critic
Stephen Thomas Erlewine
explained the wild success of the triple anthology: “The Beatles mystique was still very much fastened to tape and artist alike – at the time,John Lennon had seemingly burnt out a major clamper of his talent,George Harrison was losing his popular edge and had done a disastrous
1974 American tour, and no 1 was expecting bang-up things fromRingo Starr – and it seemed similar McCartney represented the part of the group’s legacy that came closest to living up to fans’ expectations. Thus the album ended up selling in numbers, rivaling the likes of
Frampton Comes Alive!
 and other mega-hits of the menstruum.”
