One of the cool things about the vinyl edition are the theme-specific sides; Side 3, for example, is an all acoustic set, Side 5 is all songs from the then-newly released "Wings At The Speed Of Sound." This has always been a great memory for me as I saw this this tour at the Toronto Maple Leaf Gardens with my best friend.
I give this my highest recommendation for McCartney lovers, vinyl lovers, and classic rock lovers everywhere.
That's basically it.
Go to YouTube abd play Paul McCartney & Wings = Venus and Mars - Rock Show - Jet, and you'll see what I mean. Even a YouTube upload is better.
I would try to sell this in the secondary market, but I don't want to be responsible for unloading it on someone else. Due to my complete dissatisfaction with this purchase, this will be the last time I buy any Paul McCartney release. I work too hard for my money to help subsidize a billionaire's lifestyle, or further enrich a global marketing enterprise like Amazon that sells a poor-quality product based on overly-inflated pre-release hype.
