With new and fresh details (already covered in great length by Super Deluxe Edition, and The Second Disc, we’re just going to augment our earlier post with proper shots and song details.

Fans of Paul McCartney have been quite lucky with the continuing Hear Music remastering and expansion of all of the catalog titles from Macca and his band, Wings. Previously, fans have gotten their hands on excellent Deluxe Editions of Band On the Run (available in a suite of purchase choices, depending on the depth of your love), RamMcCartneyMcCartney II, and Wings Over America. And those have been great releases.

Hear Music have posted minimally informed pre-order links in both the the UK and US sites of Amazon for the next in the restoration series of the Paul  McCartney Archive Collection. Of course, it is no secret that the next revisited sets would be Venus And Mars, the 1975 follow-up to Band On the Run (1973), and At The Speed Of Sound (1976). Both albums would continue to explore what McCartney had in stock, each with their own run of successful singles that would keep both albums on the top of worldwide charts for their natural span.

On September 23 (US), September 22 (UK), Hear Music will reissue both Venus And Mars, and At The Speed Of Sound in several styles of reissues that include a 2CD set, as well as a boxed version, and gatefold LP sets too. Fans can start setting their pennies aside for the level of acquisition(s) that will please them.
