Released in 1975 and 1976, Wings‘ Venus and Mars and At the Speed of Sound showcased Paul McCartney‘s post-Beatles band at the height of its powers, topping album charts on both sides of the Atlantic and launching songs (“Listen to What the Man Said,” “Silly Love Songs”) that became major hits. Now, the Paul McCartney Archive is reissuing both in standard and deluxe packages.
While the two-disc standard sets include the original album (remastered under McCartney’s supervision) and unreleased unreleased tracks, the three-disc sets also feature a DVD of previously unseen mid-Seventies footage. The latter are also packaged with book full of unpublished photographs, interviews, track-by-track info and artifacts from McCartney’s collection. Production for the deluxe edition was completed at Abbey Road by the same team that worked on recent reissues of the Beatles’ catalog.
