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 remastered at Abbey Road Studios.
In the spirit of the season, the entire Paul McCartney Archive Collection has been available to TVD readers through a series of special giveaways during the month of December, courtesy of Sir Paul and his team. We’ve been selecting five winners for each 180 gram vinyl reissue package.
We end our run of giveaways with a release outside of the Archive Collection and Paul’s latest, 2012′s Kisses on the Bottom.
“Kisses On The Bottom is a collection of standards Paul grew up listening to in his childhood as well as the two new McCartney compositions “My Valentine” and “Only Our Hearts.”
With the help of Grammy Award-winning producer Tommy LiPuma and Diana Krall and her band, McCartney’s new album is a deeply personal journey through classic American compositions that, in some cases, a young Paul first heard his father perform on piano at home. The full tracklisting reveals that Paul has been both reverent and adventurous in his song choices.”
“The album was recorded at the legendary Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, New York, and London throughout 2011. It also features guest musicians Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder, respectively, on the original compositions and Eric also appears on the track ‘Get Yourself Another Fool.’”
