Wide Prairie is a posthumous compilation album by Linda McCartney. The idea for the album was inspired by a fan who wrote in inquiring about "Seaside Woman", a reggae song which Wings had recorded in 1972 under the name Suzy and the Red Stripes featuring Linda on lead vocals

The 16-song collection spans the early 1970s to the late 1990s, featuring Linda on vocals and playing various instruments on material that she wrote or co-wrote. These include tracks with Wings recorded between 1972 and 1980; the 1977 single-only release ‘Seaside Woman,’ by Linda and Wings under the pseudonym Suzy and the Red Stripes; covers of classic numbers by the McGuire Sisters, the Coasters and others; and solo material.
She died before she had a chance to complete it, but Paul proceeded to finish the album, Wide Prairie, and release it in the fall of 1998 as originally planned. Clearly, it was a labor of love for the pair, since they spruced up 25-year-old tapes and recorded brand-new songs, all when she was suffering from breast cancer. Consequently, it's hard to say anything bad about Wide Prairie, since that would be distasteful, but the fact remains that the album is wildly uneven
