Side 1 is an edit of most of the Wings performances from segments 1, 4 and 10, as listed below. Side two has segments 7, 8 and 11. Paul McCartney spent February of 1973 in Morocco (staying at the hotel Mamounia in Marrakesh) planning this TV special, presenting Paul as the ‘all-around’ entertainer but falling somewhat short in the end. Broadcast date was 16 April 1973 in the US. *** JPM TVguide Part 1 The program opens with a live performance by Wings in front of an audience of television screens. – Song: “Big Barn Bed” JPMcC Part 2 An acoustic medley of songs is performed by McCartney during a photographic session with his wife Linda as the photographer. – Songs: “Blackbird”, “Bluebird”, “Michelle”, “Heart of the Country” JPM 2 Part 3 A short music video style performance set in an outdoor location. – Song: “Mary Had a Little Lamb” Part 4 A television studio performance with Wings and orchestra in front of a live audience.
