Incredibly its now 40 years today since my first Paul gig. And what a gig it was! That's me at Paul's elbow and Thenightfish, you must be in there somewhere too. Hope some of the live versions of the Back to the Egg and london Town songs from this tour appear on their super deluxe editions (assuming they see the light of day).
Hi Jock! Happy anniversary! what a great spot to be in for your first Paul gig. I was in the front row of the balcony that night, so yes I should be in that photo somewhere! It was a fine place to be, "in the gods" (except when it started shaking up there as everyone stomped their feet and chanted "Paul McCartney" before the encore ). On the 16th, I was on the floor, several rows back, maybe 12 or 13? Also a wonderful gig. I am still so happy that I made it over for those shows.
I loved that tour, so happy I was able to see a few of the shows. I celebrated a bit last year being back in Glasgow last year, tho of course it wasn't the same (and no Mull). I am glad that at least we do have the Last Flight bootleg to remember these gigs by, but yes, it would be great to get some of the songs on the deluxe versions of those albums.
