Background: Released in 1978, Wings Greatest was the first compilation album by Paul McCartney and Wings.
The album reached #5 on the UK charts and #29 on the U.S. charts.
Released in 1978 after London Town gave McCartney another huge hit, Wings Greatest rounds up McCartney’s greatest hits from 1971 to 1978 — which means it skips “Maybe I’m Amazed” but touches on Ram. The main strength of this collection is that it contains many hits that never appeared on any album, and these are among McCartney’s very best non-Beatle singles: the eccentric domesticity of “Another Day,” the choogling rocker “Junior’s Farm,” the Bond anthem “Live and Let Die,” the piledriving “Hi Hi Hi,” and “Mull of Kintyre,” a Scottish-styled folk ballad that was his biggest hit in England.
