Paul and Linda McCartney's Legendary Album RAM Set for Deluxe Reissue

US Release: 22nd May 2012


Paul and Linda McCartney's 1971 album will be released across
a variety of formats with new and exclusive content including a
beautifully packaged Deluxe Edition Box Set the ultimate collectable.

"Ladies and gentlemen, this is an album from a long, long
time ago, when the world was different.  This is an album that is part
of my history, it goes back to the wee hills of Scotland where it was
formed.  It's an album called RAM. It reminds me of my hippie days and
the free attitude with which it was created.  I hope you're going to
like it, because I do!"
Paul McCartney, 2012

Following the announcement last month that RAM is to be the
latest album from Paul's iconic back catalogue to get the deluxe Paul
McCartney Archive Collection treatment, today the full tracklisting of

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.  It was overshadowed at the time by the drama of the
dissolution of The Beatles, as played out in the world's media. The
album topped the charts hitting #1 in the UK and #2 in the US.  While
RAM polarized critics upon its release, music fans and critics alike
since have overwhelmingly embraced it, with Rolling Stone, for
example, revising their original review up to 4 stars.  Recently RAM
has enjoyed even further re-appraisal and acknowledgement including a
number of tribute albums.

RAM was written by Paul and Linda, mostly at their Scottish
farm on the Mull of Kintyre.  In the autumn of 1970 they flew to New
York to start the recording process.  Without a band in place they
auditioned and drafted musicians, who included future Wings drummer
Denny Seiwell and guitarists David Spinozza and Hugh McCracken.  

The band completed the album in early 1971 along with
non-album tracks 'Another Day' and 'Oh Woman, Oh Why' which were
released together as Paul's first post-Beatles single ahead of the
release of RAM and became a Top 5 global hit.  The multi-disc editions
of the RAM reissue include both songs as bonus tracks.  The album also
gave Paul his first post-Beatles US number 1 single with 'Uncle
Albert/Admiral Halsey' and a Grammy win for Best Arrangement
Accompanying Vocalists.

RAM was also issued in mono with alternate mixes, which were
only made available to radio stations at the time.  This version has
gone on to become one of the most sought after McCartney
collectables.  It will now be commercially available for the first
time ever on CD as part of the Deluxe Edition as well as a limited run
on vinyl.

1977 saw the release of Thrillington, an instrumental
interpretation of RAM, which was originally recorded in 1971 at
London's Abbey Road Studios and was arranged by Richard Hewson.  It
was released under the pseudonym Percy 'Thrills' Thrillington, an
unknown eccentric socialite who often cropped up in mysterious
newspaper classifieds.  In reality Percy was a character devised by
Paul and Linda.  The idea behind it was simply to have some fun and
the concept of doing a full orchestral album was an ambition long held
by Paul.

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.

Available across a variety of different formats, the
additional format tracklistings are as follows:
