Look for a deluxe reissue of Paul
and Linda McCartney's 1971 classic album RAM in May. McCartney's second post-Beatle album was recorded at Columbia studios in New York City (where Bob Dylan cut "Like A Rolling Stone") and topped the charts in America and reached #2 in the UK.
"Ladies and gentlemen, this is an album from a long, long time ago, when the world was different. This is an album that is part of my history - it goes back to the wee hills of Scotland where it was formed," said McCartney
in a statement. "It's an album called RAM. It reminds me of my hippie days and the free attitude with which was created. I hope you're going to like it, because I do!"
The multi-platform releases will include a remastered CD, a special edition with b-sides and rare cuts, a box set, and stereo and mono vinyl versions. The mono version has been highly collectible and was only available to select radio stations. Maybe Paul will perform RAM live somewhere for old time's sake. It's a lovely album and the engineers at Abbey Road did the re-mastering. Check it out.
