Dig your bottom dollar: Paul McCartney just announced reissues of two Wings albums

Paul McCartney has announced mega reissues of the first two Wings albums, which will include a variety of previously unreleased footage and audio material.

It includes a four-disc reissue of Wild Life, the first album from Wings originally released in 1971. Co-written by McCartney and his late wife Linda, Wild Life was recorded in just over a week, with most of its tracks laid down in one take. 


Paul McCartney has announced mega reissues of two Wings albums. The Wild Life and Red Rose Speedway limited editions will include remasters by Abbey Road Studios, B-sides, home demos and much more.

The deluxe version will feature a full remaster of the album at Abbey Road Studios, which will include a variety of previously unreleased material; 25 bonus audio tracks, initial mixes of the album and original edits of the songs, plus B-sides and home demos.

There will also be a book detailing the story of the band written by David Fricke, senior editor of Rolling Stone, as well as a 48-page scrapbook containing tour diaries, lyrics, unpublished Polaroids and memorabilia, as well as notes and set lists.

There will be a numbered, limited edition remaster of Red Rose Speedway across six discs. Red Rose Speedway was the second Wings album and the first to reach #1 in the United States.

The limited deluxe edition will contain three discs of audio, which includes remasters, alternative mixes and rare tracks. There will also be two DVDs and a Blu-ray containing unseen footage of interviews, music videos, performances and much more.

The release also comes in time for The Beatles’ 50th anniversary of the White Album – a tough selection for fans of both.
