Both albums will arrive with piles of bonus material
Published Oct 19, 2018Paul McCartney has revealed plans to reissue even more albums from his band Wings. Wild Life and Red Rose Speedway will each be treated to archive editions, as well as a deluxe set combining both albums. They're due out December 7 via MPL/Capitol/UMe.
Wild Life, originally released in 1971, will arrive as a four-disc deluxe set featuring three CDs and a DVD. The CDs include a remastered version of the original album, as well as two discs filled with bonus material like rough mixes, single versions, B-sides, home recordings and unreleased songs. The DVD, meanwhile, features home videos, rehearsal footage and behind-the-scenes clips.
The deluxe Wild Life set also comes with a 128-page book containing previously unpublished photos by Linda McCartney, additional album and single artwork, track-by-track information and new interviews with Macca himself.
There's also a 48-page scrapbook that features photos, tour diaries, set lists, notes and memorabilia.
Red Rose Speedway, from 1973, will arrive as a six-disc set, including three CDs, two DVDs and a Blu-ray. The reissue features a remastered version of the original album, as well as two discs that present the album as a double album. Red Rose Speedway was originally intended as a double album, but never released as one until now. There are also additional singles, B-sides and alternate mixes included.
The previously unreleased film The Bruce McMouse Show is also included, both on DVD and Blu-ray. The remaining DVD features rare and previously unreleased footage from the James Paul McCartney TV special, interviews and music videos.
The reissue package also includes a 128-page book featuring photos, artwork and interviews, as well as a 64-page photo book called Wings in Morocco that showcases McCartney's sketches and notes for The Bruce McMouse Show.
Finally, both albums will be combined in a package that also includes The Wings Over Europe bonus material that previously appeared in the Paul McCartney and Wings – 1971-73 box set.
