It's March of 1978, and big expectations for a follow-up to Wings' ultra-successful Wings At The Speed of Sound record are mounting. Though it had been over a year since their ultra-successful WINGS OVER THE WORLD tour, audiences poured into stores in record numbers for a new single from Paul & company -- but would their LP follow suit? The answer came in the form of a resounding "yes", and the sixth album from the little (huge) band that could -- London Town -- arrived with both critical and commercial success. Though just shy of the #1 spot in the US, this softer, more relaxed collection was packed with the pastoral likes of I'm Carrying, Deliver Your Children, Girlfriend and more -- securing the McCartney domination of the mid-70s with tuneful flair. With Paul sitting pretty, former bandmate Ringo Starr worked away on his own new album (and accompanying TV special) which would feature an all-star cast and the former Beatle's first solo performance in front of a live audience...ever. Would the original "bad boy" come out on top? Stay tuned for part three of 1978 to find out...
