Linda's lone effort to be released

A solo album recorded by Linda McCartney in the years before her death is to be released.
Wide Prairie, produced by Sir Paul McCartney, features 16 tracks including three cover versions and 13 original songs written by Linda.
The album includes all the songs she recorded privately over the past 20 years.
Geoff Baker, a spokesman for the McCartney family, said: "The album is completely diverse and includes everything from ballads to pop songs.
"It is one of the things that Linda wanted to do and I think she would have been very proud of it."
The album will be released worldwide at the end of October, or early November.
The six-minute long cartoon fantasy - about a child riding a prairie on horseback - was shown before the UK première of Robert Redford's The Horse Whisperer.
