The Beatles filming Help! in the Bahamas, 1965.

Although the Caribbean scenes come at the end of the film, they were the first to be shot. They arrived on February 23rd for the 14-day Caribbean shoot. Much of the film’s beach scenes were shot on Cabbage Beach, on the northern side of Paradise Island.

On this day in music history: December 7, 1971 – “Wild Life”, the debut album by Wings is released. Produced by Paul McCartney, it is recorded at Rude Studio at High Park in Campbeltown, Kintyre, Scotland and Abbey Road Studios in London in August 1971. Coming very closely on the heels of “Ram”, released barely seven months before, Paul McCartney is joined by wife Linda and band members Denny Laine and Denny Seiwell, making up the first line up of the band Wings. Their first album is completed in under a weeks’ worth of studio time. McCartney records it wanting it to sound spontaneous like a live recording. Five of the albums eight songs are recorded in a single take. On the albums’ release day, it is launched with a party in London to both herald the new release and introduce the band. It takes a verbal pounding from critics upon its release, but still performs decently on the charts. The album is reissued on CD in 1993 with four additional bonus tracks, including the previously released stand alone singles “Give Ireland Back To The Irish” “Mary Had A Little Lamb” and “Little Woman Love”. On December 7, 2018, the 47th anniversary of its original release date, album is reissued as a remastered as part of McCartney’s Archive Collection series. “Wild Life” is released as a two CD, two LP or three CD + DVD deluxe box set. The lavish boxed edition contains twenty five bonus tracks of previously unreleased rough mixes, single edits, non-LP B-sides and other rare material. The DVD contains home videos, rehearsal footage, and other previously unreleased film. The box als contains a one hundred twenty eight page book, annotated by Rolling Stone Magazine journalist David Fricke, and new interviews with Paul McCartney and the other band members. “Wild Life” peaks at number eleven on the UK album chart, number ten on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
