Song for song the strongest set in McCartney’s solo career, 1971’s RAM receives the grand reissue treatment this month as part of the Paul McCartney Archive Collection. Essentially this means RAM enthusiasts can now find all of the album related ephemera in one place;  i.e. the Thrillington release, session outtakes, b-sides, the RAM documentary (Ramming), a mono version of the LP, and for those looking to replace their banged up vinyl, a 2-LP version of the Special Edition.

Related: In 2008 I put together a not for profit RAM tribute compilation entitled RAM On LA. Released in 2009, the comp focused wholly on Los Angeles artists each taking on one of the LP’s tracks. It’s still available for download, here.
