Further to yesterday’s news about Paul McCartney‘s forthcoming Wings Over America reissue, today we bring you the first photo of what the deluxe box version of this set looks like, and further clarification of the specification.

The set will actually come with FOUR books all housed within a numbered hardbound slipcase:

  • • 112-page book written by David Fricke, featuring new interviews and extensive tour photography
  • • Exclusive 60-page photographic journal of Linda s images chronicling life on the road
  • • 136-page replica tour book with itineraries, tour program, memorabilia, and lyrics plus three prints (10 x8 )
  • • 80-page book of drawings by artist Humphrey Ocean

We can see from the image that the slipcase (at the back) does not conform to the other deluxe reissues – with the album cover in question set into solid colour setting. The Wings Over America box looks to have a ‘flight case’ style decoration, with stickers, the Wings logo, as well as the album cover itself. It is also clear from the photo that other elements such as stickers, ticket replicas, perhaps a sewn-on patch, are also included in this box set.

As with previous deluxe editions a 24bit 96kHz high resolution audio versions of all songs on the remastered album & bonus audio tracks will be part of the offering, accessed via a download code inserted on a card within the deluxe edition package.

    Seems great, but i would prefer a similar look for all the books (or just the box set, like RAM)

  2. Michel says:

    Looks like the price at Amazon.com has already gone up to $140…I ordered just in time at $94…thank you for the heads up!!!

    $293.06 to pre-order. This is turning into a money grab. I am a Paul McCartney devotee but I cannot afford to pay this. The price of Ram was high enough. There should be package with the cd’s and the dvd without the books. If all his albums are going to get this treatment it will be a hefty fee. I was going to get the delux sets of all. I have Band on the Run and Ram in delux. McCartney and McCartney 11 just in the cd format. I may have all the future releases in this format as well as these hight prices continue.
