Folks, if you have not already purchased, or gotten Paul’s newest album, Electric Arguments, then you may have a reason to hold off. Or, if you are a collector of all-things Beatle related, then you may have an excuse to get a second copy for your shelf. It looks like Paul is, yet again, re-issuing his album in another format. Do we really need another version of the same album?
Probably not, but this album is so good, we just may have to buy it twice. Yeah, we really do like it that much!
Here’s what we’ve read.
Save up those pennies, folks. The Paul McCartney-Youth Fireman album “Electric Arguments,” already available on CD, in mp3 form and on vinyl LP, has been in stores on CD just about a month and we’re told it’s already being reissued. McCartney’s press office tells us the slipcase is changing and new copies will be in stores, either in the UK or U.S., this coming week.
And that’s not all. A deluxe version, containing the vinyl album, the regular CD, a seven-track CD with bonus mixes and remixes, a DVD containing hi-definition audio recordings and multi-track session files for some album tracks that allow you to mix your own Fireman, an art print and exclusive booklet and file downloads, is available for $79.95 through McCartney’s website.
The album was named Album of the Month in issue 358 of Record Collector magazine, which just hit the stands in the UK.
Even though the Fireman album that has deservedly gotten such good reviews and is Paul McCartney’s best album in years, its chart history hasn’t been very hot. Right now, it sits at #177 on the Billboard 200 album chart after 3 weeks. It peaked at #67.
