PAUL AND LINDA McCARTNEY - RAM (remaster)

Not to be outdone by such other recent 'Archive Collection' Macca reissues as McCartney, McCartney II and Band On The Run, RAM is now available as a single-disc remaster; a limited-pressing mono LP; a 2CD (or 2LP) set with bonus material; or a 4CD/DVD/book Deluxe Edition boxset, filled with reproductions of notes, lyrics, photo prints and other McCartney family ephemera (which is by far this reissue series' most lavish box to date—here's what it looked like when we cracked one open!).

"Forty years later, hearing  RAM again is like learning that the one-night stand you didn't think much of could have turned out to be the love of your life. Now, what I hear is a songwriter in an exuberantly good mood. I hear an artist really pulling out all the stops to prove he didn't need John, George, or Ringo to be a world-class act. I hear McCartney playing some of the best licks he ever laid down while building his compositions on some of the most artful studio production of any era." - SeattlePi

"'I want a horse, I want a sheep/Want to get me a good night's sleep,' Paul jauntily sings on 'Heart of the Country,' a city boy's vision of the country if ever there was one, and another clue to the record's mindstate. For Paul, the country isn't just a place where crops grow; it's 'a place where holy people grow.' Now that cities everywhere are having their Great Pastoral Moment, full of artisans churning goat's-milk yogurt and canning their own jams, RAM feels like particularly ripe fruit." - Pitchfork
