[As posted in 'Beatles News' so if you read it there don't bother here.]

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just when you thought all your Christmas pennies had been used up, news from a long thought extinct series reappears. Reportedly coming at Christmas, it's 'Wild Life' and 'Red Rose Speedway' in the 'McCartney Archive'. Yes, it's back. The never-ending series that six-months after everyone has given up giving a crap yawns back into life leaving all with a shrug of excitement. A series that when compared to other Beatles-related reissues looks so meagre in its contents it makes Scrooge seem generous with his 0.000001% discount on a bag of coal.

You thought four cd's, a book and a DVD with plenty of outtakes was the standard of excitement, well, get ready for 16 outtakes over two discs, a couple of live tracks from a concert spread out over 8 other CD's, a luxury book that you'll look at twice then leave forever on a shelf, some replica pieces of paper that you never cared about, unseen photos that if they stayed that way no one would lose out and a couple of pieces of crappy plastic shaped into a guitar pick/paperclip/roadside side or whatever else can be chucked in to bulk up the price.

I love McCartney outttakes but he hasnt really delivered any good releases in a while aside from Flowers In The Dirt . Hopefully these outtakes appear on spotify so I won’t have to overpay for two cds of outtakes.

Overpaying for these Archive releases is a given. 'Flowers In The Dirt ' is one of the better ones; 'Speed of Sound', 'Venus And Mars ', 'Tug Of War ' and 'Pipes Of Peace ' are dire in terms of the outtakes we got. 

Maybe Paul has seen sense with 'Pepper', 'Imagine ' and 'The White Album ' sets but I doubt it. Presumably, we will see the tracks left off the revised 'Red Rose Speedway ' like we did with 'McCartney II ' but unlike that release, you're going to be made to pay for it (all the 'McCartney II ' tracks were available to purchase thru his website as downloads). 'Wild Life ' will no doubt have the second disc containing the non-album singles from that time, a small handful of live tracks taken completely out of context, and a demo or two.

You have to draw the line somewhere, so I made a decision not to buy any of these McCartney boxes. I’m just collecting the 2-disc versions.

They are really milking us this fall.

Well, color me surprised. Just when I was about to declare this whole thing dead, they go and do this.  a-hard-days-night-paul-4

Repeating tracks for the 'double album' disc of RRS seems a little awkward in the age of playlists, as do the redundant inclusions of "Little Woman Love" and "Country Dreamer" after having previously been included on the releases of Ram and Band On The Run , respectively. And, alas, no "Henry's Blues."

Given the almost universal shrug of indifference this has been met with, it's surprising Paul seems to have learnt so little from the deluxe releases of Pepper & the White (we may not have heard it yet but he has) and, to a lesser degree, what Yoko's done with Imagine .

All three of those have been met with genuine excitement here, and the two so far released have not disappointed, while the third is looking highly unlikely to.

And then Paul trots back on for his slice in this period of reissue madness where goodies are dropping Here, There And Everywhere to be met with a collective sigh of - as if a heckler greeting Donovan at a Secret Policeman's Ball - "Oh! We thought this was dead!"

"Not yet!" grins Paul. "Not yet."

And yet again the latest additions to this "limping dog" (as Johnny might have called it) of a reissue program does nothing but disappoint. I don't mind all the ephemera that comes with them, the ephemera often adds to the whole experience when the audio contents are got right but, sadly, Paul once again fails to deliver on getting anywhere near what these sets could and should have been.

Nothing pisses me off more with any archive release than an under-utilised disc time-wise (apart from the discs that have the original release) but take a look at disc 2 on Wild Life - 8 rough mixes. 8! What are the chances that uses more than 30 minutes of the 80 available? Certainly no more than 40. All that wasted space. Is Paul really suggesting he has nothing left in the archive from the Wild Life  period that we would want to hear legally that might not fill that wasted space?

Paul's competing with Dylan, Yoko's Imagine and Apple's new approach and is falling badly short. You'd think he might've learnt something from overseeing The Beatles deluxe sets the past couple of years. But, alas, it seems no.

He could have changed course here, started to make this series worthwhile, but again it seems, alas, no.

People have debates about whether him continuing to release new music and to perform is damaging his reputation. Hell, no! Least not half as much as the cack-handed way he undermines his back catalogue and archive with his continually badly curated revisits to work that reputation is built on.

Truthfully, I wasn't expecting a whole lot for Wild Life , given the lack of talk about unreleased tracks from those sessions over the years. Thus, this actually exceeded my expectations. As far as not utilizing all disc space, yeah, it's kind of stupid (though this practice goes all the way back to the McCartney/McCartney II reissues), but it's a moot point for me, since I'm just buying the tracks digitally.

The big issue here will get how much these cost. 

John's 'Imagine ' with 4 Cds, 2 Blu-ray's and a book is around £66 on Amazon, The Beatles 'White Album ' is £125; surely Paul can't charge over £100 now for the boxes. Photocopies of merchandise and a special picture book don't warrant the top level pricing structure. 

 

Are the mixes on disc two of 'Red Rose Speedway ' the same as disc one except it's the original double album (even tho the tracklisting doesn't match acetates from the time)? If so it's yet another massive rip-off in an age of downloads and playlists.

Amazon have Wild Life  for £129.99 and RRS for £159.99. Couldn't find Wings 1971-73 on there yet but uDiscoverMusic have it £319.99.

The argument that would be made for the price point is that they are limited editions and as such are charged for accordingly.

Total and utter BS.

Total and utter BS.  

'RRS' being priced at £50 more than 'Pepper' in their super-deluxe forms, that cannot be argued for in any sensible form and surely must come down before it's released.

It's almost £100 more than the 'Imagine ' super-deluxe or whatever it was called!! 

Can only think that Paul's representatives have been sitting down with Apple's merchandise department to figure out the pricing as there is no justification for such insane costings except for pure greed ensuring that they cover the cost of producing the sets. Absolutley no change i'll be paying £160 for 3 cds and some movies (don't care about the books or pieces of paper that mean nothing).

I'm sure they would've given some indication if they were different... right?  a-hard-days-night-paul-4 And, indeed, this track listing is definitely different from the other couple proposed listings for the double album I've seen; the medley was never on any of them, while both "1882" and "Jazz Street" *were.*
