Paul McCartney & Wings

Band on the Run Music video

The title track from McCartney’s masterful 1973 album was first released as a single forty years ago, in April of 1974. This video was created by Ben Ib, whose work you may recognize from the gigantic video screens that appear behind McCartney and his band on tour. It’s one of over 200 videos you can enjoy on McCartney’s official YouTube page.

When listening to this intricate, creatively-arranged three-part song, it might surprise you to know that McCartney and his band overcame a fair amount of chaos while creating ‘Band on the Run.’ During the initial recording sessions in Lagos, Nigeria, the singer and his wife Linda were mugged — and the thieves got away with the demos for the album. Wings were also without a drummer for these sessions, leaving Paul — who occasionally filled in behind the kit for the Beatles — to pick up the drumsticks himself.

The ‘Band on the Run’ album was remastered and re-released in 2010 as the first title in the on-going ‘Paul McCartney Archive Collection’ series, complete with previously unreleased performances and documentary footage. You can purchase ‘Band on the Run’ via iTunes or Amazon.

  • Asbestos, as a rule, must be removed immediately after construction is completed, as it contains substances harmful to the body.  Asbestos removal companies can be hired. Otherwise you can do all the work yourself. It is necessary to carry out the procedure for removing asbestos in disposable overalls. Gloves and rubber boots should also be disposable. If it is done in cold weather, in a house without heating, clothing should be warm enough and comfortable to work with. It is recommended to carry out the procedure with three people: two men do the work directly and one supplies water, tools and materials.
