These two albums were the ones I was most excited about him releasing (I've been waiting since I was like thirteen for these lol), but now that they're out I'm just not excited enough to get them. It's just so expensive, and I know I'll only look at the box sets like four times in the next decade.

I'm just holding out hope someone who bought the Deluxe Editions eventually uploads the 16 exclusive tracks not on the mere Special Editions somewhere online.  a-hard-days-night-paul-4This YouTuber did 3 of them (who knows if he'll do the rest, though):

 

 

 

I mostly want the studio version of "The Mess." (Speaking of which, anyone else notice Paul's spoken intro was cut from the remastered live version of that song? And, meanwhile, "Jazz Street" is a whole 3 minutes shorter than the bootleg version I've had for some time. What gives??  paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif)

The two disc release is substantially weaker than any bootleg i’ve seen of Red Rose Speedway . I found an early vinyl bootleg of the alternate tracklist and event that seemed like a better deal, even though its availible online for free. The real perks I see in owning this is having the singles on a disc of vinyl ex. Little Woman Love, Hi Hi Hi , C Moon, Live And Let Die . This is Paul’s best singles era its fun to have it on vinyl. It was also cool to include the Live And Let Die group take as that wwe what initially got me excited. I was excited to have Jazz Street as well but I was disapointed by the shortened version.

Wogblog report that Flaming Pie is up next on this marginal distraction as we slow crawl to our death (I think I was 3 months in the womb when it started). 5 CDs and 2 DVDs is the limited edition set and a release date of 24th July.

No tracklisting or other details yet makes you wonder how Paul has filled 5 CDs; the original album, all the tracks on the various singles, the handful of early alternate mixes that were on a promo tape. Will we finally be getting outtakes?

Please for the love of God do not fuck up Flaming Pie 's deluxe edition. While I have virtually no confidence in this release, I hope they can set themselves on the right track as the 50th anniversary of Ram fast approaches

No ’Back To The Egg ’ or London Town ’ reissue yet we got another ’Ram ’ would only highlight the pathetic handling of this. The haphazard inclusion of the additional material only adds to how much of a joke it's all been.

I honestly don't know why they didn't go chronologically, or maybe taken a decade at a time (allowing them to jump around a little, but still retaining some sort of logic). The releases themselves have been done pretty well, but the dartboard they're presumably using to select the next album must be looking pretty worn out by now.

Yeah, I initially thought we'd get Pie after Flowers, but when they released WL and RRS instead, I assumed they were going to go back and finish the Wings stuff first. But, no, they're throwing us another curveball.ahdn_paul_01  At any rate, this better be the last album in this line released by itself.

 

EDIT: The author who posted on that blurb on Wogblog claims in a reply to said post that LT and BTTE are both rumored for a December release at the end of the year. Let's hope so.
