Paul McCartney to Reissue RAM

Paul McCartney’s 1971 album RAM, a collaboration with his late wife Linda McCartney, will receive a deluxe reissue as part of his Paul McCartney Archive Collection. As with the previous releases in the series, Paul has personally overseen every aspect of the project. The package includes a 112-page book, photo prints, handwritten lyrics and notes, four CDs and a bonus film DVD.

RAM, originally released in May of 1971, is the only album to be credited to both Paul and Linda McCartney and was Paul’s second post-Beatles LP. The album, mostly written at their Scottish farm on the Mull of Kintyre, was recorded in New York in the fall of 1970. The backing band on the album future future Wings drummer Denny Seiwell and guitarists David Spinozza and Hugh McCracken.

The additional film content features previously unreleased and exclusive content including the brand-new documentary, “Ramming” narrated by Paul, as well as the original music videos for “Heart Of The Country” and “3 Legs”.

The remastering work was done at Abbey Road using the same team who recently remastered the complete Beatles’ catalogue.

RAM will be available across a variety of different formats including digital, vinyl and CD.
