Paul McCartney & Wings, ‘Wings Over America’ – Album Review

Back in 1976, when Paul McCartney & Wings’ live album ‘Wings Over America’ was released, the band was coming off a string of four No. 1 records. The triple-album set, culled from various concerts the group performed on their 1976 U.S. tour in support of ‘Wings at the Speed of Sound,’ soon became their fifth straight No. 1. (The last three-record LP to reach the top spot was by one of McCartney’s old bandmates: George Harrison’s ‘All Things Must Pass.’)

43 Years Ago: The Beatles’ ‘Let It Be’ Album Released

‘Let It Be’ was supposed to be the album that would bring the Beatles back together. After an increasingly fractious couple of years that culminated in 1968’s self-titled (‘White’) album, which was basically four solo records for the price of a double LP, the four Beatles holed themselves up in London’s Twickenham Film Studios, and then at Apple Studios, during the first month of 1969 to re-spark their dying flame. No outside visitors, no BS -- just four guys hanging around playing music. Just like the old days. They called it ‘Get Back.’

David Bowie Finds Religion in New Video

From the looks of the photos leaked from the set of David Bowie's latest video, it appears that the former Ziggy Stardust has found religion. Or maybe he's playing one of the apostles. We wouldn't put it past him. After all, he did star as Pontius Pilate in 'The Last Temptation of Christ' and played a Christ-like alien in 'The Man Who Fell to Earth.'

40 Years Ago: The Eagles’ ‘Desperado’ Album Released

For a band that was never particularly narrative, linear or even all that ambitious with their songwriting, the Eagles’ decision to make their second album a concept record always seemed a bit odd. Their self-titled 1972 debut was filled with peaceful, easy and likable L.A.-style country-rock that rarely grabbed at more than it could handle. At this stage in their career, there was nothing cynical or pretentious about the Eagles.

30 Years Ago: David Bowie Releases ‘Let’s Dance’

Heading into 1983, David Bowie hadn’t placed an album in the Top 10 since 1976’s ‘Station to Station.’ His ‘Berlin Trilogy’ (made up of 1977’s ‘Low’ and ‘Heroes’ and 1979’s ‘Lodger’) and 1980’s ‘Scary Monsters’ were critical hits, but they didn’t sell all that well. With his artsy experimental records behind him, Bowie once again got serious about his commercial career, tapping Nile Rodgers -- the mastermind behind the bestselling disco group Chic -- to co-produce 1983’s ‘Let’s Dance.’
