Concord Music Group just announced it's reissuing Paul McCartney's post-Beatles solo and Wings catalog. Yes, the McCartney. And it all kicks off in August with a remaster of the 1973 classic Band On The Run with enhanced packaging and rare bonus content.

McCartney and Concord's Hear Music imprint already have a few titles under their belt, Memory Almost Full (the label's inaugural release), Amoeba's Secret and Good Evening New York City. With this new exclusive global arrangement, fans can expect both physical and digital distribution of gems from his solo offerings like McCartney, Ram, Pipes of Peace, Give My Regards To Broad Street and Flaming Pie, as well as Wings landmarks such as Wildlife and Red Rose Speedway. In addition, the re-releases will include stuff done under McCartney's pseudonyms: Percy "Thrills" Thrillington, The Fireman and Twin Freaks.

Of the agreement with Concord, McCartney said, "Since the release of Memory Almost Full in 2007, I've had a good working relationship with Concord and enjoyed our mutual love of music. I'm looking forward to continuing this relationship with the new catalog campaign. I'm always looking for new ways and opportunities to get my music to people and Concord share this passion."

This year marks the 40th anniversary of McCartney, the icon's first solo album. Concord looks forward to celebrating his legacy.

It sounds like to me EMI is crying the Blues McCartney doesn't seem to have any trouble getting a record company to back him or let him make a new album at 68 how cool is that,I didn't Realize Ringo is almost two years older than Paul.Was it Ringo then John then Paul and of course the dark horse George the youngest?

Hey Zip,EMI gave Paul a lifetime contract, but did little to promote his albums, so Paul left and in fact a few other big acts left too.
Concord is a great label, John Fogerty signed with them a few years back, they promote their artists very well.
All of Paul's albums,solo,Wings and Fireman will be reissued, and after that is a boxset in the works, covering the years 1969-1986, but it's on hold till the albums get reissued.

Very cool Fogerty was burned by his old record label Fantasy records.Paul has every right to change since EMI sounds like they don't get things right.I'm surprised Fireman is reissued since it hasn't been out for very long.Fogerty and Sir Paul both rock and deserve to be promoted the best they can be.

Fogerty was deceived by Saul Zantz another Allen Klein, they are ticks.
Fogerty and McCartney are doing quite well in album and ticket sells.
Both rock.

"Zanz Kant Danz but he'll steal your money". Love that album I was only fourteen when I owned it. "Big Train from Memphis", "Mr. Greed"(another hint for Zantz?) love these songs. And "I saw it on TV" which has a little tribute to the Beatles("...'cause for guys from England took us all by the hand"). Funny that John when he referred in the early days about Klein said that he put more money into his account, he's a good businessman. "Watch them or they'll rob you blind".

Hi Greg, Centerfield was an excellent album, not a bad song at all.
Saul tried to sue John by saying he copied Run through the jungle with Old man down the road, Saul lost,but if it were true, both were John's songs.
Check out John's 1997 album Blue moon Swamp and his 2007 album Revival, pure Creedance sound.

Hi Allan, these people are vampires they suck the blood of the talented artists. Fogerty and every Fogerty hires such a person to secure the money he makes from the sales of an album but in the end...Glad that he lost("Saul, Saul why are you persecuting me?"). Epstein was a Gent, and the Beatles were his mission in life. Maybe they wouldn't have split if he hadn't died in 1967. At least not in 1970. Fogerty is a great artist, I don't own these albums you mentioned but I have listened to some songs from them. Centerfield is fantastic. He's a great guitar player too, his playing is so distinctive and passionate and melodic depending the song. Reminds me of Neil Young...He can be melodic, hard, or mellow...

John Fogerty's guitar playing is very underrated.He can wail on the guitar and sing great still.I'm glad he prevailed because he certainly paid his dues.Full moon Swamp is great The eye of the huricane all still have the classic Creedence sound Change in the weather is one of my favorite songs.

Neil and John are both great guitar players and singers.
Brian Epstein wasn't perfect, but he was better than most managers,especially Allen Klein, Parker and Epstein helped mold and promote their artists, but their fees were very large, but I guess they both worked hard for them.
True artists can survive, Paul,Fogerty,Young,Gilmour and Springsteen have made it very well.

Blue moon Swamp and Full moon Fever are both 4 star albums, 2 of the best ever released.
Would love to see Fogerty and Petty tour together, Petty and the Black Crowes toured together a couple of years ago, heard it was awesome.
Saw the Crowes 7 times, they do versions of Jealous guy and Lucy in the sky with Diamonds, Crowes style.
That's rock n' roll and it never dies.

Forgot to mention that back in 1992 Ringo recorded his Time Takes Time album in the studio next to the Crowes recording their Southern Harmony and Musical Companion album, Chris Robinson mentioned how Ringo's album sounded very cool.
Ringo has played drums on a few Petty albums.
It was cool seeing George and Ringo in Tom's Won't back down video in 1989.

FOR=FOUR, Sorry.

Hey guys, hope you are on line. I wonder if there are artists like them today. I would like that they could have been 20 somethings in the level of those artists.

The Black Crows are a very cool band.I've never heard them do a Beatles cover but they did do a Rod Stewart cover very well.Oasis and Cheap Trick both do the Beatles very well but so does the Smithereens I saw them on you-tube.Styx does I am the walrus very good.Tom Petty and Fogerty would cool on the same ticket or Ringo and the Black Crows on the same concert ticket Wow what a show that could be.

Oh yea, the Crowes love the Beatles, and so do the Smithereens, these guys rock.
Nothing like a double billed tour, especially if both are favorites.
