Paul McCartney has announced the reissue of two Wings albums — 1971’s Wild Life and 1973’s Red Rose Speedway. Both reissues are due on December 7.
The four-disc (3CD, 1DVD) limited deluxe edition of Wild Life, the debut album from Wings, features the full album remastered at Abbey Road plus 25 bonus audio tracks including rough mixes of the album, original single edits, B-sides, home recordings and other previously unreleased material. The set’s DVD features rare footage of acoustic home videos, rehearsals and more.
“The Wild Life deluxe package includes a 128-page book written by David Fricke telling the story behind the album – including track-by-track information and new interviews with Paul and key album personnel, a 48-page scrapbook of tour diaries, lyrics and set lists, unpublished Polaroids, lyrics, notes and memorabilia from the MPL archives,” MPL/Capitol/UMe said in a statement.
Red Rose Speedway‘s 3CD/2DVD/1Blu-ray set features three discs of audio including the original album remastered at Abbey Road, no less than 35 bonus audio tracks, including a reconstruction of the originally conceived double album version of Red Rose Speedway, singles, B-sides, alternate mixes and previously unreleased tracks.
