Listening Booth — Wings, “Magneto and Titanium Man” (live, 1976)
Today is Sir Paul McCartney’s 70th birthday, so in tribute I want to share one of my favorite tunes from Macca’s post-Beatles career. It’s a live version of “Magneto and Titanium Man,” from a 1976 concert at the Kingdome in Seattle. The original cut can be heard on the excellent Venus and Mars album from Wings. This take made it onto a 1980 McCartney home video release, Rockshow, which hasn’t seen a proper DVD issue as far as I know.
