Possibly some or many of you know that paul recorded wings' concert in glasgow on 17th december 1979. About 2 weeks later paul played a very similar songlist on the final day of the concerts for the people of kampuchea. I read that paul was planning to release a live album with all the songs from the glasgow concert, but at that time only the live version of coming up was released on the b-side of the coming up single. A bootleg called last flight with all songs (coming form paul's tape) was later released. I think now paul wants to release all (or almost all) of the glagow concert because maybe i'm amazed, every night and hot as sun were released on the bonus disc of the remastered mccartney and you could download Band On The Run and no words if you bought the remastered Band On The Run on paul's official website (i think the same thing wa slater done on ram with the 1972 live versions of Eat At Home/smile away and the uncle albert jam). So why did paul want to release a live album from the glasgow concert. I think he knew at that time that the kanpuchea concert would be recorded and he could have released a wings only live album of that concert and a best of of the whole concerts was released featuring three wings and three rockestra songs. I don't say I'm not happy that the glasgow concert was recorded because i absolutley love all of the glasgow versions but I just don't understand why it was recorded
