After a “false alarm” earlier in the year about a June 2014 release of the next two Paul McCartney Archive Collection releases – the goods are finally coming to those of us that have waited. The 2014 remastered 1975 album by Paul McCartney & Wings Venus and Mars and it’s 1976 follow-up album Wings At The Speed Of Sound will both be released in a grandiose repackaging with plenty of bonus features on September 23rd in North America and September 22nd everywhere else.
Similar to the previous Archive Collection issues both albums will be available in a 2-CD standard edition with the original albums on on disc and bonus material on the second disc. Then there is the 3-disc deluxe version which adds a DVD, hardback book (128 pages for V&M, 112 pages for SoS) of photos and new interviews from Paul McCartney and additional info about each track that is over and above what was originally available on earlier releases of either album. Finally there is download access to 24-bit digital audio files with the deluxe edition. There are also vinyl and digital-only options.
