At Chicago's Fest For Beatles Fans there was an ad for this release on the back of the program. The text reads as follows: The first release in the PAUL McCARTNEY ARCHIVE COLLECTION. [Available in] Standard CD - Special 2 CD + DVD Edition - 180 Gram Vinyl - Digital Download. Deluxe 3 CD + DVD Collector's Edition featuring a 120-page book containing many previously unpublished images by Linda McCartney and Clive Arrowsmith, album and single artwork and a full history of the album, complete with a new interview with Paul and expanded track by track information. Digitally Remastered at Abbey Road Studios in London. Available ***September 28, 2010- now pushed back to November 2nd, 2010.... Coming Soon: McCartney - McCartney II - Ram - Venus & Mars. For more information visit paulmccartney.com There is no mention of B-Sides, Alternate Versions, Unreleased Recordings or Live Recordings.
*** Of course the release date has been pushed back to 11/2/10 now...but supposedly the next four are "McCartney", "Ram", "Venus And Mars" & "McCartney II".

"BAND ON THE RUN" Tracklisting!
** The "Standard" is now the 9 track version, which I think is too bad, since the U.S. version lots of people are used to was with "Helen Wheels". I think all three of these bonus tracks work well with the whole loose concept of the album..."Helen Wheels"- travel & freedom & being in a band- "Country Dreamer"- the fantasy of the final rewards of freedom & success- "Zoo Gang"- being an instrumental, it works well wherever...

Wow... this is a disappointment.

So... we get the 9 song BOTR- which better sound freakin' fantastic.

Then we get this One Hand Clapping garbage... sorry, but where are the real outtakes - even Jet and 1985 w/out orchestration would be preferable.

Then we get a rehash of the 25th anniversary- which I already own.

This is one I will NOT be buying.


From a marketing standpoint... wouldn't it have made more sense to put out something like Ram where you'd have a whole 2nd CD of unreleased goodies?

Sucks.

im actually pretty happy about 'one hand clapping'.
great to finnally have it on dvd.
however i too am dissapointed about the absence of genuine 'outakes'.
seems to be a re hash of the 25th anniversarry edition.

after reading that track list...i can honestly say i grok what sir kj is dishing

unless someting exasperatingly new pops up on this one, it's a pass...

and if this is how he treats his number one release of all time...i'm a bit underwhelmed at the thought of what the next few may bring...

only good news is he apparently has his eyes set on ram and mccartney 2.... :-D

Are there any outtakes?

And if we are to have outtakes, I'd rather have them in a Lennon Anthology-style box rather than spread out over 20+ CDs.

The remasters aren't going to be good value whichever way you look at it. No Suicide on OHClapping? or did I just miss it?

How about they forget the remastered albums(which we all have) and do a series of discs of unreleased, studio, live material and rarities?

Its really getting a little late for a lot of this stuff.

Paul should have followed Dylan's lead and done his own "Bootleg Series"- remember Dylan is on Vol. 8 with Vol. 9 on the way!

BOOTLEG SERIES VOL. I
2 CD set of the essential unreleased songs... Best Friend, Waterspout, Yvonne, etc.

VOL. 2 - WINGS' /LIFTS OFF
Definitive 2 CD set of Wings '72-'73 campaign

VOL. 3 - RAM SESSIONS
2 CD set of Ram sessions (remember 20+ songs were recorded)

VOL. 4 - WINGS' LAST FLIGHT
2 CD set of Wing's 1979 tour

VOL. 5 - WAR AND PEACE
2 CD set of 1980 - 1982 George Martin TOW/POP/GMRTBS sessions

VOL. 6 - WINGS OVER THE WORLD
2 CD set of alternate performances of Wings' 75-76 tour (i.e. Junior's Farm from Australia!)

VOL. 7 - NIGHT OUT (RED ROSE SPEEDWAY SESSIONS)
2 CD set of sessions for Red Rose Speedway (originally intended as a double album)

VOL. 8 - LIVE INTO THE 90s
2 CD of alternate performances from 1989-1993 tours (pretty much the same band)

VOL. 9 - WATER WINGS - London Town and Back to the Egg Sessions

I'm surprised so many of you are down on the remasters/bonus tracks. While the listing for BOTR is certainly not perfect, it will all be a huge improvement on what we have. I have wanted the One Hand Clapping stuff to be released in hi-fidelity sound since I learned of its existence a few years back (I wasn't around in the 70s....). Those who feel it's not worth the money because they already have bought it previously can still revel in the fact that it will be available online if you know where to look (for free). Regardless, something tells me we'll all be really happy for the upgrade.

And if we have to wait another decade for unknown outtakes, what's wrong with that? As with the Beatles unreleased material, it's actually cool to know that there is STILL more stuff out there that one day we will get to hear.
