Confirmation: “Maybe I’m Amazed” 12-inch vinyl single release for Record Store Day/Ringo Starr re-issues

The rumor I originally posted about here concerning Paul McCartney’s plans to release a 12-inch vinyl single om April 20th, 2013 for this year’s Record Store Day event have been confirmed. It was released commercially on a 7-inch single in February 1977 to promote the 30-track triple LP set Wings Over America but was also issued only to radio stations as a 12-inch promo single. The reissue will have the same track listing as the original promotional 12-inch single from the seventies which on Side 1 has a 3:53 single edit stereo version of the song plus a 5:22 stereo mix of the album version. Side 2 has mono versions of the single edit and album version. The discs will be limited to only 3500 copies. This “teaser” release is sure to have people thinking (and hopefully saving up!) for the upcoming remastered account of Wings Over America which is getting the Paul McCartney Archive Collection treatment, complete with lots of bonus material, for release later in the year. For information on stores near you that participate in Record Store Day exclusives, visit the RSD website here.

Additionally, Ringo Starr will not be a “no show” for RSD releases either. Ringo will be reissuing three of his single releases from the seventies: “It Don’t Come Easy” b/w “Early 1970″ (1971), “Photograph” b/w “Down and Out” (1973) and “(It’s All Down To) Goodnight Vienna” b/w “Oo-wee” (1974). The set will be specially packaged in a lift-top lid box that also comes with a poster and RSD 45 adapter. Only 2500 copies are being manufactured.

    I have always used b/w as in “backed with” when describing a B side of a single. I have never seen c/w, which you used to describe one of the three upcoming Ringo releases. A quick Google search taught me that c/w is “coupled with” which is what I guessed.

    I am curious to know why you alternated between b/w and c/w. Did you do that purposely?

    • Happy Nat says:

      Thanks Elliott. Good question but it was just unintentional (so I’ll correct it). Throughout the site I’m sure I’ve gone back and forth with those. I’ve seen it both ways so many times in different things that I’m used to both apparently.

  • Andy says:

    I sorta look forward to Ringo on RSD. Paul, of course, when “Wings Over America” is given the treatment, but RS on RSD!

    I bought the Ringo mini box set today. I’m in the middle of rearranging my music room so I haven’t listened ton it yet. But the packaging is nice. The 45 player thingie is cute with a pic of Ringo on it. Those are some of my favorite solo songs, so I’m glad this release happened.
