A Heads-up for McCartney Fans: Save the date!
Sir Paul will re-release two of his notable solo albums, Tug Of War and Pipes Of Peace on October 2nd. Both albums are being re-mixed and re-masterd and will be available in multiple formats on digital audio and video discs, digital downloads and 2-LP vinyl.
Tug of War, released in 1982, was a world-wide smash, hitting # 1 in the U.S. and the U.K. The first McCartney project after the breakup of Wings, it featured Linda McCartney, “Wings-man” Denny Laine and Ringo Starr, plus Motown’s own Stevie Wonder, on “Ebony and Ivory”, which was #1 for seven weeks!
Pipes of Peace, released a year later, also featured Linda, Denny and Ringo, though it was a relatively less successful album, hitting Top 5 in the U.K, but only #15 in the U.S. This, in spite of two songs featuring Michael Jackson, including the #1 world-wide single “Say, Say, Say”.
You know, it’s never too early to start writing down the Christmas Wish List.
