This was one of my favorite albums growing up. Of course, I was a big Paul McCartney fan at that time, not so much the Beatles. Back then I wasn't really aware of sonic quality including dynamic range, compression, etc. Then a friend of mine pointed out at the end of "Rock Show" the engineer or Paul or I don't know who turned up the compression really high. The more I listened the more I realized that most of the album is heavily compressed. It really makes the bass stand out, but you can't hear the subtle details. Well, I'm glad to report the new album has dialed down the compression and you can hear instruments and backing vocals that weren't apparent before. It's quite a revelation from the original CD. Most of the original CD's were just copies of the analog tape and not much attention was paid to trying to take advantage of the new digital technology. I've heard many "remastered" CD's that don't sound much different than the original. However, with "Venus and Mars" it's truly worthy of the "Remaster" label.

High recommended. Five Stars.

I think I'll get the "Wings Over America" remaster next.

*Note that this the first part of my review on Venus and Mars and Wings at the Speed of Sound. For my review on Wings at the Speed of Sound, go to its page to read it.

Following last year's reissue of Wings Over America, MPL and Hear Music/Concord have released the next two entries in the Paul McCartney Archive Collection. The albums, Venus and Mars and Wings at the Speed of Sound, were albums released during the peak of Wings' career. As with the previous entries, the albums are newly remastered and each come with a second disc of bonus tracks. In terms of sound, the remastering on both albums is top notch and should make any McCartney fan happy.

Released in 1975, Venus and Mars was Wings' follow up to the critically acclaimed Band on the Run. At this point in time, Paul McCartney had expanded the line-up of Wings. Along with McCartney was his wife Linda on keyboards and guitarist/singer Denny Laine. Guitarist Henry McCullough and drummer Denny Seiwell had both left before Band on the Run was recorded, leaving Wings as a trio for that album. In 1974, 21-year-old Scottish guitarist Jimmy McCulloch and drummer Geoff Britton were added to the group. This line-up did not last for very long. After only a few recording sessions, Britton left the group. He would be replaced by American drummer Joe English. With McCulloch and English in the group, the band were about to embark on what would be the band's most successful time in their career.

Venus and Mars has always been a personal favorite of mine. As a follow-up to Band on the Run, I think it's a very strong album. Compared to the band's previous work, Venus and Mars does sort of have a hard rock edge to it.

In early 1975, Paul McCartney became the first ex-Beatle to leave the wreckage that used to be Apple Records, by re-upping his deal with Capitol/Parlophone/EMI. Not only did his McCartney Music (later MPL Communications, Ltd./Inc.) company obtain ownership of all of his post-Beatles catalog going back to 1970, but he returned to the legendary original Capitol label in BOTH the U.S. and the U.K. While Parlophone still distributed and numbered his U.K. albums, most of the British releases also had the famous Capitol dome logo, which Capitol U.S. had phased out in the early 1970s in favor of the C-shaped "bulls-eye" logo. Paul brought the original logo back, using a custom label more reminiscent of classic Capitol 78s from the 1940s than 1960s Beatle albums. Some countries did use the "bulls-eye" logo on the sleeves; in other markets, McCartney records were issued on EMI affiliates such as Odeon, and the Apple label was still used in a few distant markets that hadn't gotten the word that the Apple era was over. By the end of 1977, Capitol had abandoned the "bulls-eye" C logo in favor of the classic original on all new releases - that's how strong Macca's pull was.

VENUS AND MARS was the first McCartney record released under this new arrangement. Credited solely to Wings, it was the first album to feature the "new" Wings lineup - Paul and the late Linda McCartney, Denny Laine, the late Jimmy McCulloch, and Joe English (who replaced Geoff Britton early in the sessions). It's always been one of my favorite albums, and has been released on CD three times - on CBS Records in 1984 (no bonus tracks), and twice by EMI, in 1988 and 1993, with three bonus tracks, one of which, "Zoo Gang," now appears on the 2010 BAND ON THE RUN reissue.

Defining Paul McCartney is like trying to pick up mercury. In 1970 he delivered a crushing blow with the dissolution of The Beatles and the release of a very, very, "raw" home-made album which many either outright hate or love (I fall into the latter camp but admit it is a "you have to be in the mood" album). Paul then released RAM in 1971 under the duo heading of Paul & Linda McCartney. This album won the hearts of many Beatles fans and despite heavy-handedness from the critics, both sold well and received much acclaim from the public. (This one falls into my absolute favorite position). Then a few months later in '71 he released an album called WINGS WILDLIFE, or at least that is the way we, the general public who didn't know any better, the way we understood the title, not Wildlife by Wings. Well, once you read the liner notes you kinda got the feeling something was happening where Paul and Linda were putting a "group" together with their drummer and a new recruit from the "old" Moody Blues, Denny Laine. The album got hammered, and even some fans didn't like it, but given enough time, and enough fan adoration, the album still carries a good listen or ownership and deserves much more credit that it initially got. Then Paul and Linda and Denny decided to dub themselves "Paul McCartney & Wings" (RED ROSE SPEEDWAY and the immortal BAND ON THE RUN). Macca has spent some considerable time and effort in remastering a few of these over the last few years, releasing them on Starbuck's Hear Label as The McCartney Archives Collection, and the resulting sonic wave is indeed beautiful and worth every consumer penny.Read more ›
