Band on the Run wins another Grammy Award for Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney and Wings / Band On The Run Deluxe EditionPaul McCartney’s 2010 archive reissue of his 1973 classic Band on the Run, won a Best Historical Album at the 54th Grammy’s in Los Angeles last night.

It is the third Grammy for the album that many consider to be McCartney’s best post-Beatles effort, after he picked up Best Vocal Performance by a Duo, Group or Chorus, and engineer Geoff Emerick walked away with Best Engineered Recording, Non-Classical  in 1975.

This is the second year in a row that Paul has walked off with a Grammy. Last year he won in the Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance category for his performance of Helter Skelter on the live album Good Evening New York City.

Bruce Springsteen / The Promise : The Darkness On The Edge Of Town StoryThe Best Boxed Or Special Limited Edition Package was won by Dave Bett & Michelle Holme, Art Directors for Bruce Springsteen’s The Promise: The Darkness On The Edge Of Town Story.

The two men were actually on stage together at the awards, when Springsteen joined McCartney as he closed the ceremony with a barnstorming performance of Golden Slumbers, Carry That Weight and The End from Abbey Road.
