There’s been no official announcement from Paul McCartney’s record label Concord Music Group, but according to Amazon.com, his “Ram” album will be the next in the series of Paul McCartney reissues.
According to the Amazon website, the “Ram” reissue will be out on the streets in the U.S. on May 22. The Amazon website lists three configurations. There will be the high-priced book edition, a deluxe edition and the standard edition a few dollars cheaper, according to the listings. There are no details of what extras will be added. It should be noted these are advance listings and could very well be changed. As all are listed as single disc releases, that would seem likely.
“Ram” was originally released by Paul and Linda McCartney in 1971. It was the only McCartney album credited to both Paul and Linda.
The album included the hugely successful single “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey,” The album was released at a time when McCartney and John Lennon’s friendship was on the outs. John Lennon parodied the “Ram” album cover, which showed McCartney tugging on a ram’s horns, with a postcard in copies of his “Imagine” album showing him tugging on the ears of a pig.
With the listings online, expect a formal announcement very soon.
