Wingspan is a 2001 made-for-television documentary film about Paul McCartney’s musical career, after The Beatles split up, with his second band, Wings.

Produced by the McCartneys’ MPL Communications, it was broadcast around the world to accompany the contemporary release of a 2-disc retrospective collection from McCartney’s solo career, titled Wingspan: Hits and History. An accompanying book, also titled Wingspan, based upon the documentary’s script as edited by Beatles’ historian Mark Lewisohn, was published in 2002. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wingspan_%28film%29

TheBeatlesRocknRollMusic

Rock ‘n’ Roll Music is a compilation album by The Beatles that consists of previously released Beatles tracks. The double album was issued on 7 June 1976 in the United States, on Capitol Records (catalogue number SKBO 11537), and on Parlophone (PCSP 719) in the United Kingdom, four days later; at the time, some in the media speculated that the album was released to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the first meeting between John Lennon and Paul McCartney. (If that was indeed the intention, EMI miscalculated, as the two actually first met in July 1957.) The title, Rock ‘n’ Roll Music, presumably came from the song of the same name by Chuck Berry, The Beatles’ version of which is included on side two of the original two-record set. The album is primarily made up of cover versions of songs written by significant rock and roll composers of the ’50s, including Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Carl Perkins and Larry Williams, although some notable Lennon–McCartney originals, such as “Drive My Car”, “Revolution”, “Back in the U.S.S.R.” and “Get Back” are included also. Rock ‘n’ Roll Music was the first Beatles album to include “I’m Down”, which had previously only been available as the B-side of the “Help!” single.
