Paul McCartney Overseen 180g 2LP Archival Release Featuring A Reconstruction Of the Originally Conceived Double Album Version Of Red Rose Speedway, Based On Original Acetates and Master Tapes From the Period!
Paul McCartney presents the eleventh (Wild Life) and twelfth (Red Rose Speedway) classic works from his revered catalogue to be remastered, reissued and expanded across multi-format installments of his Grammy-winning Archive Collection. Red Rose Speedway served as the second Wings album following Wild Life and first credited to Paul McCartney and Wings. Released in April 1973 and featuring the No. 1 single "My Love," it was the first Wings album to hit No. 1 on the U.S. chart.
Red Rose Speedway – Double Album is the originally conceived version of the album, though it was ultimately stripped back to a single vinyl. For this limited release it has been reconstructed based on original acetates and master tapes from the period. It is now available for the first time on vinyl LP. This edition is pressed as a 180-gram 2LP-set housed in a single outer sleeve with a 12-page 10" booklet plus a 320kbps MP3 download redemption card.
Every release in the ongoing Paul McCartney Archive Collection is supervised by Paul himself, who oversees all aspects of each and every title from remastering to the curation of lost tracks, outtakes, artwork, photographs and video from his personal vaults, and much more. The result is one of the most ambitious and personal undertakings of its kind, one that encompasses more than 40 years of cherished, classic material from the most successful songwriter and recording artist in music history.
