The wait is over: today, One Hand Clapping, one of the most bootlegged live albums in musical history, finally receives a proper release. In August 1974, when Band on the Run was enjoying a seven-week consecutive #1 stint at the top of the UK album charts, Paul McCartney and Wings headed to Abbey Road Studios for the filming of a video documentary and possible live studio album - One Hand Clapping. Despite overwhelming demand for newly recorded material from the biggest band in the world at that time, One Hand Clapping was never officially released.

Filmed and recorded over four days and directed by David Litchfield, the release of One Hand Clapping is a historic moment for Paul McCartney fans. Over the years, various parts of One Hand Clapping have been bootlegged with varying degrees of success. Some of the material has also appeared on official McCartney releases. However, today's new release of One Hand Clapping, which features the original artwork designed for the project, including a TV sales brochure for the unreleased film at the time, is the first time the audio for the film-plus several additional songs recorded off-camera--have been officially issued.

Nashville musician Scott Collins just released his debut solo album, "Purple Pain", and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the song "Killer Crush". Here is the story:

I sometimes don't know what inspires a song until it's complete. Composing can be like entering a fog on a ship or an airplane, with only our instruments, and not our eyes, to navigate. In art, our most trusted instrument is our feelings. When we eventually come out of the fog, meaning may (or may not) surface. The feeling of the fog, though, lingers for a long time. Meaning is malleable. Feeling is firm. (continue)
