Paul McCartney to reissue "Venus and Mars" and "Wings At The Speed of Sound" Sept. 23

Paul McCartney fans have known for a while that the next two entries in the Paul McCartney Archive Collection will be two albums he recorded with Wings: 1975's Venus and Mars and 1976's Wings At the Speed of Sound. Today, a press release has revealed that both albums will be reissued on September 23rd in various formats.

Both albums will be given separate standard two-disc packaging, with the first disc being the original albums newly remastered and the second disc being bonus tracks. As with the previous entries in the collection, the albums will also receive three-disc editions with a hardback book filled with rare photos, ticket and poster replicas and new interviews with McCartney. The third discs for the box sets will be a DVD, including video footage from the time the albums were released.
