    Let's get Barnes and Noble involved: The McCartney Coffee Table Book Archive Series.

    Then, to sell the books, they throw in some physical music media, and we're off!

    Just found out It's actually a new version with McCartney, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots. Not the original version.

    And there are more gas stations than bakeries, but I don't go looking for one when I want a donut. :D

    It was weird.

    A record store I do business with gave me the info. Probably listed on the RSD site or will be soon. Not sure how the colors will be distinguishable from one another. That's all I know so far.

  8. Yeah probably but Starbucks at the time was really into Music. Hear actually had three standalone stores in the Bay Area before Starbucks bought them.

    I bet the Starbucks distribution helped sell more copies of Memory for Macca than he would have sold without it.

    These Archive issues are McCartney’s last statement in his catalog. I can’t imagine him allowing it to go incomplete. There will be other reissues after he’s gone but these will be his approved collected works.
    Unless he’s immortal then...

    A few years ago, McCartney released a color vinyl single for Christmas Kisses. A-side was a recording of The Christmas Song. I think this was a tie in to both Kisses on the Bottom AND the first Holiday/Christmas Rules volume.

    That single was issued on both green and red vinyl. And it was sealed

    Unlike this rumored Wonderful Christmastime release, Christmas Kisses was issued to stores, not a RSD exclusive.
    However it disappeared from store shelves (limited supply) and can fetch a pretty good price today.

    If this news is accurate, I predict the Wonderful Christmastime single will be highly sought after on BFRSD.

    Bemagnus Music is fun

    To be completely honest I already own more Macca-albums than anyone need.The only think I still have any interest in is the deluxearchive-editions and of course anything new
    It s a fun listening I think

    Any word on the Bside of the McCartney/Fallon BFRSD color vinyl single?

    As I was typing that I knew you were going to ask that.
    Yes, if the colors change I would have to do it

    I'm hoping for 'Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reggae', as it seems to have fallen through the cracks as it wasn't on either the Archive sets for 'Venus And Mars' or 'McCartney II'.

    Was there a John Lennon Starbucks release? I do not have it but it just rings a bell in my dusty old brain. Regarding selling this stuff I think as ever there is a hard core market for all kinds of archival material like multiple versions of Bip Bop from the original sessions reel and then a more casual best of. I very much hope the archival stuff keeps coming and I guess I will have to sign up to one of the 6 websites to download my deluxe edition tokens.

    The only cd version (I think) of the great 'Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reggae' is on the old McCartney Collection Back to the Egg (BTTE) cd in the 1990s. I think I am right in saying that was the last time BTTE got any kind of reissue. I think it is original or 1980s represses for Back To The Egg if folk want a vinyl copy.

    I just don't get why they have studiously ignored that record for reissue? It's a great album, great cover, a few extra recordings from those sessions, the Kampuchea concert that's never been released in it's entirety and there are videos for most of the tracks on it (3 or 4 different ones for Goodnight Tonight) . Madness I tells ya.

    I agree although I am probably not the biggest fan of the Egg the album. I assume the original vinyl release sold pretty well and there does appear to be lots of additional material for a deluxe or otherwise style reissue.
