More McCartney Archive releases for Christmas
|Coming up in December, according to online record store.|
The rumours we reported back in May about a release of the two Wings albums “Wild Life” and “Red Rose Speedway” in Paul McCartney’s Archives series seem to have been somewhat confirmed by a pre-order information in an online record store. Norwegian vinyl records specialists “Big Dipper Records” have announced 2LP versions of both “Wild Life” and “Red Rose Speedway” for release December 7th, 2018.
The reason why they aren’t announcing the remastered CDes or the full boxed sets is of course because they specialise in vinyl, and won’t be offering the CD editions in their shop.
Furthermore, Swedish Beatles expert Staffan Olander recently wrote in the Swedish Rock’n’Roll Magazine that another Wings album, “Back To The Egg,” is slated for release in 2019.
After Paul moved back to Capitol Records from Hear Music/Concord, things have been quiet on the Paul McCartney Archives front, except that the record company has been exploiting most of the past albums in the “Archives” series by releasing them in new, single LP editions, on limited edition coloured vinyl, as well as on plain black vinyl.
