Record #0236: Coming Up (Live at Glasgow) / (blank) – PAUL McCARTNEY

Columbia AE7 1204 (original, promo) USA, 1980
Words & Music by:  Paul McCartney
Musicians: Paul McCartney (vocals and bass), Linda McCartney (backing vocals and keyboards), Denny Laine (backing vocals and keyboards?), Laurence Juber (backing vocals and guitar),  Steve Holley (drums), Howie Casey, Tony Dorsey, Thaddeus Richard & Steve Howard (brass & horns)
Recording sessions: The Apollo, Glasgow, Scotland, Dec. 17, 1979
Highest chart positions:  US #1, Canada #1, UK #2

This is an odd piece. It’s a one-sided, 7-inch, 33⅓ rpm promo freebie. This was included with most of the early US pressings of album “McCartney II”.

This "Coming Up" was actually recorded by Wings during their tour of the UK. I find this better (more real) than McCartney’s studio version of the same.

List price:  Very Good+ is $4, Near Mint is $8.
