ABOUT RAM:

RAM, originally released in May of 1971, is the only album to be credited to both Paul and Linda McCartney. The album topped the charts hitting #1 in the UK and #2 in the US. The album also gave Paul his first post-Beatles US number 1 single with "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" and a Grammy win for Best Arrangement Accompanying Vocalists.

The band completed the album in early 1971 along with non-album tracks –Another Day" and –Oh Woman, Oh Why" which were released together as Paul's first post-Beatles single ahead of the release of RAM and became a Top 5 global hit.

RAM was also issued in mono with alternate mixes, which were only made available to radio stations at the time. This version has gone on to become one of the most sought after McCartney collectibles and is now commercially available for the first time ever on CD as part of this Deluxe Edition.

1977 saw the release of Thrillington, an instrumental interpretation of RAM, which was originally recorded in 1971 at London's Abbey Road Studios and was arranged by Richard Hewson. It was released under the pseudonym Percy 'Thrills' Thrillington, an unknown eccentric socialite who often cropped up in mysterious newspaper classifieds. In reality Percy was a character devised by Paul and Linda. The idea behind it was simply to have some fun and the concept of doing a full orchestral album was an ambition long held by Paul.

The additional film content features previously unreleased and exclusive content including the brand-new documentary, Ramming narrated by Paul, as well as the original music videos for "Heart Of The Country" and "3 Legs." The remastering work was done at Abbey Road using the same team who recently remastered the complete Beatles' catalog.
