The set’s DVD features rare footage of acoustic home videos, rehearsals and more. The Wild Life deluxe package includes a 128-page book written by David Fricke telling the story behind the album – including track-by-track information and new interviews with Paul and key album personnel, a 48-page scrapbook of tour diaries, lyrics and set lists, unpublished Polaroids, lyrics, notes and memorabilia from the MPL archives. Wild Life’s download redemption card will provide access to all audio in HD 24/96kHz unlimited high-resolution versions.

Congratulations! Looking forward to the release:-)


Marty G 1 years ago

With all the reissues of later Wings albums, I was afraid "Wild Life" (and "Red Rose Speedway") were not going to get the treatment they deserved. I loved "Wild Life" from the 1st listen. Still do. I remember seeing an interview with Paul where he suggested that people who told him this was one of their favorites may have just been trying to get on his good side. I'm here to say that isn't true. I'm really looking forward to this!
