About

"Mull of Kintyre" performed by Wings, was written in tribute to the picturesque Kintyre peninsula in Scotland, where McCartney has owned his High Park Farm since 1966, and its point, the Mull of Kintyre. The song was Wings' biggest hit in the United Kingdom where it hit the number one (Christmas time 1977). It was the first single to sell over two million copies in the UK.

The song by Paul McCartney was recorded in August 1977 in London, during a break in recording the London Town album. Bagpipes from Kintyre’s local band, Campbeltown Pipe Band, played a very a prominent part on the hit recording. “Mull of Kintyre” and “Girls School” (a rocker that had been previously recorded for London Town) were released as a double A-sided single on November 11th 1977, independently of the album.

Geoff Emerick, best known for his engineering work with The Beatles on their albums Revolver, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles and Abbey Road, produced the album.
