“Venus and Mars” and “Wings at the Speed of Sound” are the next albums to receive the deluxe treatment as part of the Paul McCartney Archive Collection.

Wings reissues

The albums will be reissued in November as two-disc standard editions on CD and vinyl, three-disc deluxe editions, and digital downloads. The deluxe editions will include extra material, a book, and a DVD of material from the period.

The previous reissues under the Paul McCartney Archive Collection were “Band on the Run”, “McCartney”, “McCartney II”, “RAM” and “Wings over America”.

“Venus and Mars”

Wings - Venus and Mars Box Set

“Venus and Mars” was Wings’ fourth album and the follow-up to the highly successful “Band on the Run”. It was recorded between January and April of 1975 and released in May. After recording as a three piece band for “Band on the Run”, McCartney added Jimmy McCulloch (lead guitar) and Geoff Britton (drums) to the Wings line up in 1974, with the latter replaced by Joe English for most of the “Venus and Mars” recordings.

“Venus and Mars” was a worldwide smash, topping the charts in many countries, including the US, UK, Canada, and New Zealand.
