Paul McCartney & Wings / Maybe I’m Amazed (Live Version) (12” Vinyl Single)
This live version of “Maybe I’m Amazed” was originally serviced as a radio-only promotional 12″ vinyl single back in 1976 to herald the release of Wings Over America. Newly reissued exclusively for Record Store Day, it faithfully reproduces the treasured Paul McCartney collectible and features both stereo and rare mono mixes of the classic track only available here.
Wings are one of the most successful acts the UK has ever produced, achieving no less than 14 US Top 10 hits and 12 Top 10 hits at home – including “Mull of Kintyre” which with 2m+ sales remains the biggest-selling non-charity single of all time – over their ten year career
- · The Wings over America reissue (Hear Music/Concord) follows the re-release of Band on the Run, McCartney, McCartney II and RAM for the Paul McCartney Archive Collection. To this point, the celebrated series, personally supervised by Paul, has been honored with the Best Historical Album GRAMMY Award for Band on the Run and most recently a Best Historical GRAMMY nomination for RAM
- · Released in early December 1976, Wings over America was platinum by Christmas and #1 on Billboard album chart by the third week of January. The famous live version of “Maybe I’m Amazed”, issued as a single in February 1977 (the studio version from McCartney, an FM-radio hit in 1970, was never available on 45) quickly went Top Ten on Billboard’s singles chart and has since become one of Paul McCartney’s most beloved songs
- · The remastered album’s release is dedicated to late members Linda McCartney and Jimmy McCulloch.
