I've slowly been picking up all of Paul McCartney's remasters/archive collection series & they've all been great! Great sound, beautifully put together, and at a great price!
Look for the 3 DISC VERSION --- you get a Bonus CD (Helen Wheels anyone!?) and a Bonus DVD to go with the new remastered album (and it's only a few more dollars than the single disc version) It's a great deal at 15 bucks!
Band On The Run (Archive Collection)
With an excellent album like BAND ON THE RUN, its always good that a journalist was around at the time to document
what had happened at the time. With the Archive Collection, this is a special release treat with 2 CD, and a DVD
with films that cover the making of the Cover of the album ( Kind of neat that idea, and the reference was from
George Harrison when at a meeting when George said "If I ever get out of here...", ergo the prisoners of their own
band idea). And the audio from the DVD is used on the second CD as the additional songs. The booklet of Polaroids
is almost like being in Lagos, Nigeria ( where the album was mostly recorded), and this was done with Paul, Linda
and Denny Laine, so the other Guitarist had bailed, as well as the drummer. The story of the album is covered in a
rather summary way, so I won't spoil it for you there. and the Documentary is very fun for McCartney fans !!
I hopeto be able to get the other Archive albums, although it is likely that I may be getting different editions sincethe amount of diverse material being re-released is rather, and thankfully, significant. Bands that re-release key albums with either additional content from the time, as well as remastering the music, seem to be picking up extra fans. And since McCartney has been around for a while its great to hear his old songs performed in 5.1 ( like the CITI FIELD concert in GOOD EVENING NEW YORK ) but it is great to have the original members on the old tapes, or in most cases with the Masters transferred to Hard Drive, the sound can be opened up on original recordings without adding guitars, they just process the sound like they did to the Mono recordings of DEEP PURPLE on the Beeb. And the additional feature of the Remaster and Booklet versions is that you get to find out the connection between PAPILLON and how Dustn Hoffman made the song Picasso's last words possible !! Get the album, its a great story !!
