    Decades-Spanning "Live" Album Milestone Reissues

    Following last night’s North American kick-off of his record-breaking #FreshenUpTour, Paul adds to his Summer of LIVE! Paul has confirmed updated releases of four albums capturing performances spanning from his 1975-1976 return to U.S. arenas with Wings to his intimate 2007 set at Amoeba Records in Los Angeles. The albums — Amoeba Gig, Paul Is Live, Choba B CCCP, Wings Over America — will be released July 12, 2019 via MPL/Capitol/UMe digitally, on CD and on both black and limited edition colour vinyl.

    Pre-Orders are up through his official store, here: Paul Is Live

    There is already some discussion in the Forthcoming Releases thread Paul McCartney Archive Collection - 'Forthcoming Releases' [2019+]
    however this thread is solely dedicated to the live reissues.

    Is there any reason to pick up the CD releases if I already have these? I will probably get the Amoeba disc since I only have the EP.

    Why the Russian album? Isn’t that a studio recording?

    They're pitching it as "live in the studio".

    Will they only be available on Paul’s website?

    Nope. The black vinyl is available at all of the usual outlets (Amazon, Bull Moose, etc...). I'm not sure about the colored vinyl, though.

    No, most retailers will have them. Bullmoose and Amazon are taking orders already. Of course, there will be the usual hiccups with people not getting the limited color LPs, which always seem to be in shorter supply than hoped.

    Do I need this ?
    NO.
    I already have them all, no more money for MPL.

    What I really want are London Town and Back to the Egg !

    Well, the Amoeba Gig is an expanded edition that no one has (yet).

    Is there a link for Amazon? I just see the listings for the unavailable Ameoba EP.

    Ugh. I mean, yay for the collectors, but the only live Paul albums I need are Wings era, and I already have a nice WOA.

    Red, green and bed vinyl for Wings Over America? Should we be teaching color theory with the discs?

    Colour theory includes the colour 'bed'?

    Meh. It would be nice for that one to be released with all the other tracks from those sessions, including the unreleased ones.
    But for some reason they are releasing it as original 11-track version.

    Sure about that?

    What's weird is I have all of these (does Amoeba's Secret count?) so I'll give this round of reissuer a miss.

    Choba - newly remastered
    Paul Is Live - newly remastered
    Amoeba Gig - newly remixed and expanded

    The only product being put out here that we already have is Wings Over America. Capitol is just trying to get that back in print on their label, rather than through Hear Music.
