"Wingspan" by Paul McCartney – ****

First released: 2001

This Wings compilation has the same problems and different problems as "Wings Greatest". While it does include all of the big Wings hits, it leaves off many important Wings tracks and more crucially includes tracks that really weren’t Wings tracks like "No More Lonely Nights" and "Pipes of Peace". In my frustration, I burned my own Wings compilation, which takes the most significant Wings tracks from "Hi Hi Hi" through "Arrow Through Me" and called it "The Real Wings Greatest". McCartney can give me a call if he wants to know the track listing. There is one “new” track on this set, the "Bip Bop/Hey Diddle" medley dating from 1971.
