About

From paulmccartney.com:

Back To The Egg was the ninth and final studio album by Wings, the band having acquired two new members in guitarist Laurence Juber and drummer Steve Holly. The album saw Paul work alongside producer Chris Thomas, who had trained as a producer during recording of The Beatles’ 1968 eponymous classic (the White Album). Recorded for the Back To The Egg sessions, though not included on the final album, was the eventual hit single ‘Goodnight Tonight’. Two tracks that did make it, however, were ‘Rockestra Theme’ and ‘So Glad To See You Here’, both recorded under the Rockestra name and featuring contributions by the likes of Pete Townshend, Hank Marvin of The Shadows, Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones and John Bonham and Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour.
