Release Date:11/17/2017;Notes:Limited 180gm vinyl LP repressing. Venus and Mars is the fourth studio album by Wings. Released in 1975 as the follow-up to the successful Band on the Run, Venus and Mars continued Wings' string of success and would prove a springboard for a year-long worldwide tour. It was Paul McCartney's first post-Beatles album to be released worldwide on the Capitol Records label. After recording Band on the Run (1973) as a three-piece with wife Linda and guitarist Denny Laine, McCartney added Jimmy McCulloch on lead guitar and Joe English on drums to the Wings line-up. Album sessions proved to be productive, not only finishing the entire album, but also several additional songs, including future McCartney B-sides. McCartney also decided to link the songs together much like the Beatles had on Abbey Road to give the album a more continuous feel. Wings' interpretation of the theme to Crossroads, a British soap opera, was sometimes used to end the show in place of the regular theme tune, usually when there was a cliffhanger ending with a hint of sadness involved.;Track List:1.
