In this first volume in a much-anticipated retrospective on the incredible solo career of Paul McCartney, acclaimed journalist Allan Kozinn and award-winning documentarian Adrian Sinclair detail his journey from the break-up of the Beatles to the release of Band on the Run.
In this first of a groundbreaking multivolume set, The McCartney Legacy, Vol 1: 1969-73 captures the life of Paul McCartney in the years immediately following the dissolution of the Beatles, a period in which McCartney recreated himself as both a man and a musician. Informed by hundreds of interviews, extensive ground up research, and thousands of never-before-seen documents. The McCartney Legacy is an in depth, revealing exploration of McCartney's creative and personal lives beyond the Beatles.
When Paul McCartney issued a press release in April 1970 announcing that the world's most beloved band, the Beatles, had broken up no one could have predicted that McCartney himself would go on to have one of the most successful solo careers in music history. Yet in the years after the Fab Four disbanded, Paul McCartney became a legend in his own right. Now journalist and world-renowned Beatles' historian Allan Kozinn and award-winning documentarian Adrian Sinclair chronicle in technicolor McCartney's pivotal years from 1969 to 1973, as he recreated himself in the immediate aftermath of the Beatles breakup - a period when, newly married and with a growing family, he conquered depression and self-doubt, formed a new band, Wings, and recorded five epochal albums culminating in the triumphant smash, Band on the Run.

'Volume 1 of The McCartney Legacy by Allan Kozinn and Adrian Sinclair, arrives like a well-planned encore a year after the publication of The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present by Paul McCartney. Influenced by the methods of Mark Lewisohn, the exacting Beatles historian currently at work on the second volume of a trilogy about the group (the first was 900 pages, and that was an abridgment)... in a way The McCartney Legacy out-Lewisohns Lewisohn, taking almost 700 pages to cover only five years.' - The New York Times Book Review
