Paul McCartney & Wings Live In Tokyo

There’s nothing particularly exciting about this bootleg. Though from a great show, it’s only an average quality audience recording. So what made me select this one? First the title caught my eye. At the release of this bootleg, Wings had never even performed live in Japan - not that they didn’t try. In 1980 Paul was detained at airport customs due to a small issue of one half pound of pot. After spending nine days in jail, the Japan tour was canceled and it would 10 years later before he would return to Japan. And the second reason I chose this bootleg? The picture of Paul in handcuffs on the back cover!
