In the band called The Beatles, even though there was a subtle power relationship among the members, the four were basically equal. It was also a good aspect, and in terms of the satisfaction of each member, it was also difficult for an individual to make a claim. The reasons for the dissolution of the Beatles can not be unequivocally stated, but various factors have only overlapped, but there is no doubt that there was a musical direction as a major factor among them. When John suggested “cold turkey” as a single of the Beatles, Paul said he disgustedly refused to blatantly release this as a Beatles. George was also dissatisfied with the small amount of assignment of his songs in the album. Looking at the movement of each member after the dissolution of the Beatles, George released the songs that had been written until then, in a couple of pairs, and John began to overwhelm avant-garde activities. And Paul speaks, like the most wanted Beatles to continue, like appealing other members over dissolution, as if the former strong ties broke down so as to be unrecoverable, the smashed dissolution Sometimes it was compared to it.
Paul ‘s desire after the dissolution of the Beatles was that he managed to take the initiative and make a band and to succeed again beyond the Beatles. If there was a name like Paul, it would have been possible to form a super group by recruiting famous musicians. Actually in the early 1970s members gathered across the band and there was such a fashion. However in Japan as in the group called PYG broke down in the short term, there are few cases that gained strong individuality and succeeded long. If you do it more than anything, it will be the same environment as the Beatles era. So Paul gathers completely unnamed members and forms a band in the form of own initiative. It is no doubt that in the long run it was a wise choice. During the audition of the band, Dennisewell, the drummer of the original Wings, recalls that “Paul seems to have sought something amazing, not just his skill.” Yes, Paul was thinking about growing the band from scratch with the resolution.
It was a pleasure for such a pole to have success beyond the Beatles. Paul, who had a feeling of lag compared to John, George, and apple who already had a hit, brought up the band steadily without injuring. Then, through several transition of member change, it was finally the world tour where one point of arrival began in 1975 and the national tour in 1976. No one would suspect Paul’s solo success after the dissolution of the Beatles, but still it took six years to get to the first national tour. It is hard to imagine that there were various conflicts before reaching there. But Paul stood in front of American fans for the first time in ten years. Paul is said to have cried when the success of the American tour succeeded. To the extent that it is accepted in the United States, it should have been a topic that we had to overcome for those musicians of the time. This work has recorded Cincinnati performance of May 27 from the 1976 US tour of Wings.
【Cincinnati Performance May 27, 1976】
First of all, it is about this Cincinnati performance. Since the Beatles era, the American tour, which is the first time in 10 years for Paul, was postponed slightly due to injury of Jimmy’s finger of guitarist, but on May 3, 1976, starting with Fort Worth, until the end of June the following two months It was a large scale performing 31 performances. By the way Wings was the only concert in the United States this year. Approximately continuous performances were held in each city, and three consecutive performances were performed in big cities such as Chicago and Los Angeles, the scale of which was far beyond the Beatles era. In Cincinnati only one performance is held. It is a concert at a position just digested about half the schedule.
[Adopted 6 songs to WINGS OVER AMERICA] Although the talk changes, the album “WINGS OVER AMERICA” and the movie “ROCK SHOW” are made from this national tour. And as if it were an urban legend, these stories are talking about the fact that the sound source and image of the Seattle performance is mainly used. It is not clear where such a hoax originated from, but until the 1990s when there was little information, it was whispered in this way as truly. Today, however, each song knows which performance places each performance is using. And the six songs of the medley of “VENUS AND MARS / ROCK SHOW / JET” which decorates the beginning of the live album “WINGS OVER AMERICA” and the next “LET ME ROLL IT” and “CALL ME BACK AGAIN” “BLUEBIRD” It turns out that the sound source of this Cincinnati performance is used. The number of these six songs is the most adopted among all the performances. By the way it is only a song “Only a long time ago Egyptian spirit” from the Seattle performance. This fact is exactly what reflects the goodness of performance of this Cincinnati performance.
To be sure, the medley of “VENUS AND MARS / ROCK SHOW / JET” is familiar to the ears that heard “WINGS OVER AMERICA”. After playing the MC “How you feeling, feeling alright? OK!” Is exactly the same as what you accustomed to listening on the sound board. On the other hand, as you can tell, you can see many places that do not completely match “WINGS OVER AMERICA”. For example, Paul has mistaken lyrics in the part before singing as “Jimmy page is like” in “ROCK SHOW”, but in live albums it is singing without being mistaken beautifully.
There are many people who surprised the fans who heard it for the first time when “WINGS OVER AMERICA” was released. It was because there was no mistake throughout the whole concert and perfect performance was recorded. Of course, this is the result of numerous modifications that were made later, and the fact that the lyrics mistakes described above do not match is also re-recorded later. “Wings Over AMERICA” is a “live” live album, not only the performance part but also cheering as well as collecting fans for dubbing and re-recording in the studio. However, this work is an audience recording, at that time, the sound that was ringing at that place was recorded as it was. The opening medley of “WINGS OVER AMERICA” is the Cincinnati performance recorded in this work, but I think that you should listen to it by all means.
【About sound quality】
This work is recorded with a high-quality audience sound source. As you can tell by listening to samples, it is of high quality that is comparable to other performances of 1976, such as Los Angeles. Amazingly, this sound source is a point that it is a perfect first appearance sound that had not been circulated even among trade which has not been out in the world at all until now. Although two kinds of sound source of Cincinnati performance have been circulated until now, only sound quality is Deiya, there is only partial sound as bonus track as “Mastery Crowder · label” THE GREAT RETURN OF AMERICA “and” WINGS OVER SEATTLE ” It was recorded only in. It is quite amazing that it was excavated in the 21st century as the sound source of the third type of the third type of the gypsy performance of this documentally important Cincinnati performance. Of course, this is the first appearance in this work, the first CD conversion. It is no doubt that it will be the title representing the 1976 American Tour.
Unfortunately there are some flaws in the main sound source. There are missing in two places from the beginning of “JET” and the end of “SILLY LOVE SONGS” to the beginning of “BEWARE MY LOVE”. Since they are supplemented to beautiful on another source of the same day on Cincinnati the same, they are still completely recorded. Also, because there were several sound skips due to the physical factors of the original tape less than a second, these are complemented by different sources on the same day, and concerts from the awakening before the performance of the concert to the appearance after the concert Completely recorded.
[About costumes] Another thing, this is a part not related to the sound source, but about costumes. Impression and memory of the image are strong, it is influenced by Melbourne and the movie “ROCK SHOW” in which the image is left, costume like Justice arrival in 1975, wrestling gown with white line in 1976 I get the impression that it was unified with costumes like. However, several kinds of costumes are prepared, and in the photo of the day that the Cincinnati performance is left, like a jacket picture of this work, she is wearing a costume like a stadium with a dark blue collar. This costume is worn by two people Paul and Linda together. It is unknown when the jacket picture of this work was taken, but on the day of Cincinnati performance, he was standing on the stage wearing this costume.
[Brisbane Performance November 10, 1975] This work includes 8 songs from Brisbane performance on November 10, 1975 as a bonus track. This was also the first appearance sound source, I was credited with the soundboard sound source, but because the auditory feeling of the vocal feeling is also heard, I would like to keep the conclusion out. Either way it is a sound board or audience that is of high quality, but it is a Brisbane performance that is not blessed with sound quality, and it is a pleasure that such high quality sound source was discovered with only 8 songs . Moreover, it is the feature of the tour of 1975, the set list changed due to the release of “WINGS AT THE SPEED OF SOUND” Coming after the altered The next 1976 was “LITTLE WOMAN LOVE? C MOON” which was removed from the set list It is wonderful to have recorded.
【WINGS OVER CINCINNATI 1976】
This work is fully recorded with the first appearance high-quality audience sound source which had not been circulated between trade on May 27, 1976 which was adopted six songs in live album “WINGS OVER AMERICA” on May 27 . Especially the opening medley of “VENUS AND MARS / ROCK SHOW / JET” symbolizing this tour is the performance that this work is officially adopted. It is an excellent performance that can be heard in full through the day. Also on Bonus Track is Brisbane performance on November 10, 1975, here also recorded with high quality tone first appearance sound source. Permanent preservation of a beautiful picture / disk specification A tightly pressed board. Japanese-style attaching.
