RARE: “Band on the Run” Out-of-Print, Numbered Book/CD/DVD Set
We've been lucky to find untouched copies of another of the wonderful "Deluxe Editions" from Paul McCartney. These are masterfully-created sets, featuring remastered music you know so well, supplemented by an absolutely gorgeous book, with lots of goodies, and tons of bonus material.
Now out-of-print and quite rare, this 2010 deluxe four-disc set (three CDs + DVD) is a fitting tribute to an album that has aged well. In fact, this was first release in the Paul McCartney Archive Collection.
Originally released in 1973, "Band on the Run" was Wings' third studio album. This 4-disc set includes:
* the 9-track digitally remastered CD album;
* Two Bonus CDs featuring nine bonus recordings including the hit single "Helen Wheels," the "One Hand Clapping" television special, and a remastered documentary disc featuring interviews and alternative versions of the album tracks
* A Bonus DVD containing rare footage of the McCartney's in Lagos, behind-the-scenes at the famous album cover shoot and original 'Band on the Run' music video clips.
It's all beautifully housed in a 120-page hardbound book, numbered on the back cover, containing many previously unpublished images by Linda McCartney and Clive Arrowsmith, album and single artwork and a full history of the album, complete with lyrics, an interview with Paul and expanded track by track information for all four discs.
Here's a YouTube unboxing video that explains it well:
Trust us -- the book is just gorgeous. And you already know about the music. We have a handful, so get yours before they disappear forever!
