Production issues will delay the reissue of two of Paul McCartney's '70s albums with Wings. Venus and Mars and At the Speed of Sound now will come out Nov. 4 instead of the previously announced September dates.
McCartney recorded 1975's Venus and Mars with Wings in New Orleans, Los Angeles and London. It included the single Listen to What the Man Said. The reissue will include recordings from Nashville sessions around the same time that yielded the 1974 Junior's Farm/Sally G single.
The follow-up, 1976's At the Speed of Sound, included the singles Let 'Em In and Silly Love Songs. The new package will include several demos and a version of the song Beware My Love featuring Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham.
McCartney's archival series has won the former Beatle two Grammys already. In 2012, the Band on the Run reissue was named best historical album, and the live Wings Over America won set boxed or special edition package this year.
Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George
