- United Kingdom
- Hammersmith Odeon
… The greatest weekend of my life…, it started on 26th May in the Hammersmith Odeon. Wings came on at about 9.30 p.m., and made the audience swing from the start. At the middle, Linda and Paul were just marvellous singing ‘Seaside Woman’. I was very impressed by Linda, without her voice the song would have been nothing. Paul was better than I had ever heard him. Coming to the end of the concert Paul sang ‘Hi Hi Hi’ – (for Lord Longton!) and everyone got up, cheered and sang. It was just great to hear everyone enjoying themselves so much. Paul and Wings have got a good thing going and they deserve to be the tops. The lighting, clothes, audience reaction, and group, were all perfect and I’ve never enjoyed myself more.
Then to top my great Saturday, on Sunday I bought BBS, it is the best record I have ever, heard, especially: Big Barn Bed, My Love, When the Night, Hands of Love … Anyone who hasn’t got the album better hurry up.
Paul and Wings are nothing like the great Beatles now, and Paul may as well be unknown, because he doesn’t need to be an ex-Beatle to help him. Linda despite all the bad things said about her, was fantastic. – When is the next London gig? Caroline FeeneyFrom Wings Fun Club newsletter #3
