Wings Over The World '76 / Special TV '79
1- Wings Over The World 1976
"Wings Over the
World'' is a Wings Tour movie produced by MPL Communications in 1979. It features
Paul McCartney, his wife Linda and the band talking to the press, rehearsing and
recording as well as footage of McCartney family moments. The best performances
from the 1976 tour are also featured.

3- Wings' Concert at Civic Center, St. Paul, Minnesota, June 4th, 1976
This is a strange footage from the Wings' concert in Minnesota in June '76. There is no commentary on the tape, neither any credit titles. The tape has a very low quality. It's like someone from the crew had shot this film. After some footage featuring Wing's arrival at the airport and the limousines driving on the highway to the concert place, various uncomplete live performances are provided:
Venus And Mars / Rock Show
Let Me Roll It
Spirits Of Ancient Egypt
Call Me Back Again
Live And Let Die
You Gave Me The Answer
Magneto And Titanium Man
