About

From paulmccartney.com:

With the addition of Irish guitarist Henry McCullough, Wings plugged away on their second album Red Rose Speedway through most of 1972, a year in which they issued no album (a first for Paul since The Beatles’ debut). By December they’d accumulated a vast amount of songs, though the idea of releasing a double-album was eventually rejected. The album did, however, include the global hit, ‘My Love’, a song that’s since been covered by the likes of Cher, Corinne Bailey Rae and Brenda Lee. One song that was recorded around this time and saved for a later date was ‘Live And Let Die’, from the James Bond film of the same name. The original vinyl pressing of the album featured a 12-page booklet stapled into the gatefold, while the back cover included a Braille message for Stevie Wonder, reading “We Love You Baby”.
