Paul McCartney & Wings To Officially Release Live Studio Album ‘One Hand Clapping’

Paul McCartney & Wings will officially release their live studio album One Hand Clapping on June 14.

The English-American rock band filmed a video documentary and possible live studio album – One Hand Clapping – at Abbey Road Studios in 1974. Despite overwhelming demand for newly recorded material, One Hand Clapping was never officially released.

Filmed and recorded over four days and directed by David Litchfield, the newly-mixed One Hand Clapping features the original artwork designed for the project, including a TV sales brochure for the unreleased film at the time. This is the first time the audio for the film and several additional songs recorded off-camera have been officially issued.

Opening with an instrumental jam that would become the One Hand Clapping theme song, the album features live-in-studio renditions of Wings mega-hits “Live and Let Die,” “Band on the Run,” “Jet,” “My Love,” “Hi, Hi, Hi,” “Junior’s Farm, “Paul’s much loved solo song “Maybe I’m Amazed,” reworked extracts of Beatles classics “Let It Be,” “The Long and Winding Road” and “Lady Madonna,” the Moody Blues hit “Go Now” with Denny Laine singing, and a Paul solo piano version of the Harry Akst/Benny Davis Tin Pan Alley classic “Baby Face.”
