After leaving a certain Liverpool band, it would have been very easy for Paul McCartney to put his feet up for the rest of his life watching the royalties roll in. It is a credit to McCartney's songwriting skills that - even though patchy albums were recorded - he could still notch upa great number of excellent singles, and 'Wings Greatest' does a fine job of compiling this evidence. Most of these hits, although slight on the face of it, bear the hallmarks of classic songwriting. The title of 'Silly Love Songs' itself sums up the sentiments here very adequately on 'Another Day', 'With A Little Luck' and 'My Love' but that would betray the fact that they are rather good in an embarrassing, can't stop smiling kind of way. Wings were no slouches in other musical areas either; it is unlikely there will be another Bond theme quite as thrilling as 'Live And Let Die' but perhaps best of all is the three songs-in-one package served up on 'Band On The Run'. Save for the the silly, stomping 'Hi Hi Hi' and the overplayed 'Mull Of Kintyre' this is as fine a singles compilation as you will ever hear from the 1970's.
