Translated Text:

Paul also continues his aggressive activities as if he had entered the aggregate age of his career. In addition to the tour that I do every year, in parallel, I re-release it by adding unreleased sound source and video to my past album. Regarding the Wings age in particular, the world tour period of 76 years tends to attract attention due to abundance of materials, but for previous Wings, it tended to be neglected until now due to the small number of materials and materials.

In the 1970s, Floyd and Zeppelin of the same period carried out avant – garde stage using the stage visual effect and Impro, and lock is also a turning point into the new domain. It would have been a very big change for Paul, who had performed ten songs in the Beatles era, and more than 30 minutes on the stage. Certainly a band made up with anonymous musicians, and the keyboard is an amateur with no music experience until then. With the announcement of the moderator, the stage where the curtain goes up with a thrill, it is felt the part which is not overcome by the trend of the times even though it is pole how much. Even though the blues that influenced the rock world since the end of the 60 ‘s were the root of their musicality, the taste of the audience shifted to hard rock in a short period of time. It was probably because Wingus caught up with the era since the guitarist switched from Henry to Jimmy, because there was such a change in trend. The stage of Wings of 1972 was a strong blues color as if it was left behind by the change of such age.

A female idol group fans such as AKB are still enjoying being able to participate and contribute themselves to the process of identifying unknown idols and idle growing and getting bigger and bigger. Indeed, the charm of the early wings is also such a feeling. Paul himself applied lessons from scratch to Linda who had no musical training. “If it comes to that, I can ask Billy Preston!” He said he reprimanded Linda. If there was a name like Paul, it would have been possible to form a band with famous musicians. But Paul did not dare choose such an easy way. I went around the university around the surprise and performed live, walking the way to grow an amateur band over time. In the early stages of the growth process, Paul’s new band, which took off from the 1970s as a summit, can be said to be the fascination of wings by the launch members.

In 1972 Wings comes to the European tour under the official announcement. At this point the album is still “WINGS WILD LIFE” only. Therefore, I had a full stage for about an hour and a half, although I had a hard time filling up the set list with solo album songs, cover songs, and unreleased next album songs and less songs. It was a measure to make the band confident about the fact that the new band started just now and avoiding the strict UK criticism of press was dared. The tour took place in two phases, July and August of 1972. Meanwhile, although the set list was almost fixed, the first half of the tour changed to “Bip Bop” the opening number, the second half “Eat At Home”. Moreover, “Cotton Fields” etc can be confirmed with the sound source which is running out, and its whole picture is many unknown part due to the small record. This is also due to the small number of sources left unattended, as well as records and articles at the time of the tour, but still a few guesses are possible from a few sources left. This work has recorded Amsterdam performances from August 20, 1972, from such a few sources of European tour of 1972. I am able to listen to rare arrangements that I can not see in other performances, such as refraining with “I Am Your Singer”.

1972年ウイングスは公式アナウンスの元、欧州ツアーに出る。この時点でアルバムはまだ『WINGS WILD LIFE』のみ。よってソロアルバムの曲、カバー曲、さらに未発表の次のアルバムの曲と、持ち歌の少なさからセットリストを埋めるのに苦労があったろうが、約1時間半のフル・ステージを行なった。新しいバンドが始動したばかりなため、あえてプレスの批評の厳しい英国を避けたのもバンドに自信をつけさせるための策であった。ツアーは1972年の7月と8月の2期にわけて行なわれた。その間、セットリストはほぼ固定されていたものの、ツアー前半が「Bip Bop」がオープニングナンバー、後半が「Eat At Home」と変化がある。また流出している音源では「Cotton Fields」なども確認出来、その全貌は記録の少なさから不明な部分が多い。これもひとえに残されている音源の少なさ、さらに当時のツアーの記録や記事の少なさが原因であるが、それでも残されている数少ない音源からある程度の推測が可能である。本作は、そのような数少ない1972年欧州ツアーの音源より、1972年8月20日アムステルダム公演を収録している。「I Am Your Singer」でリフレインがつくなど、他の公演では見られない珍しいアレンジを聴くことが出来る。美しいピクチャー・ディスク仕様の永久保存がっちりプレス盤。日本語帯付。
