Wings, Getting Closer [Single] (1979)
I never understood the idea that the band Wings was not good. I grew up on them. I love The Beatles and a lot of what Paul McCartney does solo, but for a while there at least I was a Wings fan – number one. And I always dip back in. Sure, I get that there’s some cheese. There always is with Macca. It’s part of his charm. I’m not saying you’re a mug to not like it all – there’s some dross. But I grew up on this stuff, including the much-maligned final Wings album, Back To The Egg. Actually, that’s probably my favourite Wings album if anything. And so here’s one of the singles from that – two great tracks, the b-side just an album track from ‘Egg’. So I guess I don’t really need to have this…but I like to bump up the 45 collection when I remember.
