Wings at the Speed of Sound is the fifth studio album by Wings, released on 25 March 1976 as a follow-up to their previous album Venus and Mars. As John Fogerty had done several years before with Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Mardi Gras, McCartney made Wings at the Speed of Sound a true band affair. All five band members contributed songs and / or lead vocals. He wanted Wings at the Speed of Sound to be a real band album. The abum roams everywhere from country to blues to rock and back.
