Paul and Linda McCartney‘s RAM Reissue has been officially confirmed, and the Deluxe set is – as predicted earlier this week by superdeluxeedition.com – a 4CD/DVD affair.
“Ladies and gentlemen, this is an album from a long, long time ago, when the world was different. This is an album that is part of my history – it goes back to the wee hills of Scotland where it was formed. It’s an album called RAM. It reminds me of my hippie days and the free attitude with which was created. I hope you’re going to like it, because I do!”
Paul McCartney, 2012
In addition to the remastered album, bonus audio CD, remastered Mono album, Thrillington CD, bonus film DVD and 112 page book the deluxe set will also come with five prints in vintage style photographic wallet, 8 full size facsimiles of Paul’s original handwritten lyric sheets and mini photographic book of outtakes from the original album cover photo shoot.
The rumoured Mono Vinyl Album has also been confirmed. This will be a limited issue.
No photos or packshots as yet. We will bring you them when we get them.
