It all depends with the standards, how Sinatra/Martin/Nat King Cole Paul is ready to go.
I think Paul ought to really condense the remasters. 2011-2016 seems too long. It'll lose attention, sales and pure money. Make it 2011 to 2014, and the last albums will get higher sales. And I'm impatient.

I totally agree with Sun King in that I have not the patience to wait another four years for the remasters to be done with. I hate getting excited about things, but I just can't not get excited about these remasters. paul-mccartney

I think he will dig pretty deep as he loves all those old songs, and he has an uncanny ability to remember so many songs from his childhood. I'm most excited about the new songs because I love his original "standard" style songs. I especially looking forward to My Valentine, the song he wrote for Nancy.

As for the releases...I wish they would come sooner, too. It must be hard to get all the production of the deluxe editions done, though, because those books are really detailed with interviews and pics from extensive archives. It would be cruel to release all of the albums and later the deluxe editions. I would rather wait and get good packaging than have a shitty version quicker. I can understand how it would be frustrating if you didn't care about the packaging, though. Also, there is a buttload of stuff to go through...especially if there really will be 42!!!! releases (which I'm not so sure about).

The advantage to the longer wait (for someone who is only 14) is that the longer he waits, the more money I have to maybe get one of the versions with the book… $108 is just a little steep.

Some blogs are saying there are 43 releases.

I would imagine one reason behind the 2016 ending is that fans can save up the money and arent having to spend so much at one time.

As for being excited about the reissues - no im not.

Too lazy to write out. The following has been copied and pasted from Wogblog

About the delayed RAM deluxe remaster book and CD's: word is 80% of the book is ready, but only 20% of the audio and the video discs have been finalised. Meanwhile you can visit Paul McCartney's HP revamped cloud-based website, both the Ram videos are viewable there, "Heart of The Country" and "3 Legs". But you need to find your way around there to discover them.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

 

While on the subject of Paul McCartney, his next studio album will be entitled "My Valentine" and is expected to be released on Feb 6th 2012. It will be an album of old standards, along with his own compositions in the same style. "You Gave Me The Answer", "When I'm Sixty-four" and "Honey Pie" comes to mind. "My Valentine" is also the title of the composition he serenaded his wife with at their wedding recetion.

Apparently he didn't sing at his wedding reception. There was an interview in the Times last weekend where he said it was widely reported but didn't actually happen. The Times website's behind a paywall so I can't post a link, but it was with Caitlin Moran if someone can find it with the magic of Google.

That's correct – he didn't sing at the wedding reception.  The following is taken directly from Paul's official website (I've edited out the unimportant stuff but if you're interested, the whole piece is still on his website):

 

13/10/11 10:21 AM

Our Wedding Day!

 

“…You may have read, in the media, some of the details about our happy day but, as not all of what was reported was totally true, here are a couple of corrections for those of you who like to know the truth…. It was (also) reported that I sang Let It Be and Let Me Roll It at the reception but, in actual fact, that’s not true and I think the reporters may have got confused by hearing a few of my other songs being played by our DJ for the night, Mark Ronson…"

Interesting. Apparently he did perform My Valentine at the reception, just not (depending on who you read) Ticket To Ride, Let It Be or Let Me Roll It later on that evening. Mike McCartney and Sir David Frost, who were both there, were both quoted as saying he did play the song for Nancy. I'll try to dig out the Times article to see exactly what he said.

I'll probably get them all. I've been holding off buying any of his back catalogue as I know he'll eventually reissue remastered versions. You can get the double-disc versions for less than £15 though.

After the Beatles and Lennon reissues, Apple box and the McCartney archive, what's the betting on a George Harrison reissue programme for his 70th in February 2013?

This might cause the thread to die a painful death, but… I want Ringo's and Yoko's catalogs reissued/remastered. a-hard-days-night-john-1

Yoko's too busy remastering Johns since technology has advanced massively since 2010 and Imagine is going to be 41 this year so a really big anniversary.

I would agree about Ringo's, wiki has the last remaster of Sentimental Journey as 1995 and Ringo as 1991 so its about time.

To be honest, I'm not sure why I'm excited about the remasters (remasters in general, not just Paul's). I have almost all their (John, Paul, George and Bongo's... I mean, Ringo's) albums on vinyl, anyway.

The only remasters i have looked forward to are the beatles (unsurprisingly) and Georges Dark Horse reissues as i hadnt heard some of the albums.

Pauls is being stretched over 5 years so any enthusiasm dies when you realise you have a 3 year wait till an album you want to hear. And whatever happened to Ram and Venus and Mars being released in late 2011?

Yoko tends to rerelease the same stuff - and i'll stop there on that one. A reissued complete cd and dvd set of Live In New York City would be noteworthy as it was Johns first and last full concert, instead we have to make do with a crappy sounding 1986 disc and the few that are on the Anthology set.

I'm quite interested in hearing Ringo's Sentimental Journey but have never gotten around to getting it and would like to hear Rotogravure again as that is my favourite of his but i cant find it to download.

I'm still waiting in anticipation of the rest of the George Harrison re-masters (from EMI/Apple), apart from "Venus and Mars and  and "Wings Over America" from Paul.

Its been confirmed that Wing Over America & Rock Show will be the next release in the 'never to be completed before we're all dead' remastered archive collection. This will make it 5 albums in around 2 1/2 years so far out of the 40 odd that are rumoured to be coming.

Aw quit complaining meanm; you're still a young man! (Not 45-years-plus-a-day like meself.) You'll live to see 'em all.

Don't have too much interest in WOA, but "Rockshow" sounds cool.

There are rumoured to be 42 releases in total, so far we have had 4 (averaging 2 a year) leaving 38. If it does remain 2 a year thats 19 years! Even if its doubled to 4 that 9 1/2 years. We'll be getting a McCartney 50th anniversary collection before this project is completed.

Damn, has Paul really released 42 albums?? Wow.

Maybe when he turns 75 (!) he'll figure he better step it up, start releasing 'em twice as fast.

The 42 includes new releases like rarities, outtakes and other odds and ends - there are rumours of 43 going around. You can see the rumoured schedule here - note that the releases have been correct according to that list so far. Not every release is desirable to everyone admittedly but it would be unlikely to have them just shoved out - especially if Paul is involved in the deluxe editions and has a say in what is released.

Its also rumoured that the beatles releases are one of the reasons for the delay in Wings Over America coming out. If true, and we are entering the 50th Anniversaries for each Beatles album and other events (first US visit, concert at Shea etc) and can expect releases for those, we are not only going to have to be very selective over what we buy but there will be further delays.

 

Taking all that into consideration you can see my reasons for thinking we are going to be waiting a long time for the project to be completed.

 

Additionally we also have George hitting 70 next year and anything relating to John. Forget getting a new house or car or anything else and keep the spare cash for the releases, its going to be very expensive.
