About

From Wikipedia:

Wide Prairie is a posthumous compilation by Linda McCartney. The album is composed of songs recorded between 1972 and 1998, some of which were previously released while others are unreleased Wings era recordings. The idea for the album was inspired by a fan who wrote in inquiring about “Seaside Woman“, a reggae song which Wings had recorded in 1972 under the name Suzy and the Red Stripes featuring Linda on lead vocals. Lead guitar on the song “The Light Comes from Within” is played by the McCartneys’ son, musician/sculptor James McCartney. The album reached number 127 in the UK charts, while the title track made the top 75, at number 74. “The Light Comes from Within” also charted, at number 56 in the UK charts.

From paulmccartney.com, August 30, 2017:

We’ve all been busy here in the office Instagramming our summers, sharing some of our favourite memories from our holiday travels. We love how a photo can show so much in one image – happiness, a beautiful view, friends and family. So with that in mind, we loved finding out the answer to Melissa’s question this month!

Melissa asks: “Of all of the photographs that you have taken, which is your favourite?” 

Paul replied…

“That I’ve taken? [pauses to think] Hmmm, it’s probably the one of Linda on the cover of ‘Wide Prairie’. It’s a really nice picture of her wearing the Fair Isle sweater.” […]
