TVD is delighted to have been selected by the team behind the Paul McCartney Archive Collection to exclusively spotlight the meticulous work Paul has personally supervised with the reissue series from his back catalog—all newly re-mastered at Abbey Road Studios. In the spirit of the season, the entire Paul McCartney Archive Collection to date, as well as 2012’s Kisses on the Bottom will be available to TVD readers through a series of special giveaways during the month of December, courtesy of Sir Paul and his team.
Today however, we’re slightly breaking from our running theme to toss in a bit of a holiday surprise, as you can enter to win Sir Paul’s brand new Christmas 7″ “Christmas Kisses,” of which we’ll select 5 winners for what’s basically already a holiday classic.
From Paul’s website: “Paul has announced a very special Christmas treat for fans with the release of an exclusive iTunes album ‘Kisses on the Bottom – Complete Kisses’ on November 26th in the UK / internationally and November 27th in the US. ‘Kisses on the Bottom – Complete Kisses’ will feature the hugely acclaimed album ‘Kisses On The Bottom’ alongside the entire 13 tracks from ‘Live From Capitol Studios’ concert performance, and four bonus tracks including a special festive recording of ‘The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)’, which Paul recorded at Avatar Studios in New York in September.”
The single’s A-side is the aforementioned “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire),” and it’s backed with “Wonderful Christmastime,” which is nearly ubiquitous this time of year, and is destined for the same in your home.
Enter to win Paul’s “Christmas Kisses” 7″ single by telling us in the comments below what either track has meant to you over the years—briefly!
Each contest among this special series will last a full calendar week. Five entrants with a North American mailing address will be selected as winners a week from today, 12/19.
