It doesn't get much more entertaining than this! Korngold's concerto was composed for Heifetz, who made a sensational (mono) recording of it back in the early 1950s. Dismissed at the time by music critics as a piece of sentimental schlock, it's now rightly regarded as a masterpiece, and it was this recording that did the trick. Coupled with the attractive Goldmark concerto, this disc provides eloquent testimony of Perlman's work on behalf of unjustly neglected repertoire and remains among his most important and delightful releases. --David Hurwitz

During studio sessions in Tampa Bay, Florida on 12 December 1974, Blackmore originally planned to record the solo single "Black Sheep of the Family"- a cover of a track by the band Quatermass from 1970 - and the newly composed "Sixteenth Century Greensleeves", which was to be the B-side. Other musicians involved included singer/lyricist Ronnie James Dio and drummer Gary Driscoll of blues rock band Elf, and cellist Hugh McDowell of ELO. Satisfied with the two tracks, Blackmore decided to extend the sessions to a full album.

In 2000, Q magazine placed it at number 75 in its list of the "100 Greatest British Albums Ever". In 2012, Band on the Run was voted 418th on Rolling Stone's revised list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time". A contemporary review by Jon Landau in Rolling Stone described the album as "with the possible exception of John Lennon's Plastic Ono Band, the finest record yet released by any of the four musicians who were once called the Beatles".
The album cover photograph was taken at Osterley Park, west London, on 28 October 1973 by photographer Clive Arrowsmith. It depicts Paul, Linda and Denny plus six other well-known people dressed as convicts caught in the spotlight of a prison searchlight. They are Michael Parkinson, chat-show host and journalist; Kenny Lynch, actor, comedian and singer; James Coburn, actor; Clement Freud, politician, columnist, gourmet and raconteur ; Christopher Lee, actor; and John Conteh, a boxer who later became World Light-Heavyweight champion.
