Win Paul McCartney’s ‘Venus and Mars’ and ‘At the Speed of Sound’ Deluxe Editions
Paul McCartney is reissuing two of his bestselling Wings albums of the '70s, building on the radio-friendly songs of 'Venus and Mars' and 'At the Speed of Sound' with tons of new content -- and you have a chance to win a deluxe edition.
Ultimate Classic Rock and Hear Music are offering copies of these expanded three-disc reissues, which include hardback books featuring unpublished photographs, new McCartney interviews, track-by-track information and additional archival material. The bonus DVD includes footage from the era, including never-before-seen video.
'Venus and Mars,' McCartney's four-million-selling chart-topping 1975 follow up to the previously reissued 'Band on the Run,' featured the No. 1 hit 'Listen to What the Man Said' and preceded the 'Wings Over the World' tour. 'At the Speed of Sound' arrived during those celebrated tour dates in March 1976 and spent seven consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the strength of hits like 'Let 'Em In' and 'Silly Love Songs.'
As with each of the previous entries in the Paul McCartney Archive Collection, all aspects of this reissue were personally supervised by McCartney. Remastering was done at Abbey Road with the same team that worked on the Beatles catalog. The reissues come out tomorrow.
