Amoeba Gig on 180-gram double LP

Paul McCartney & Wings fans — Paul McCartney has announced updated releases of four albums capturing performances that span from his 1975-'76 return to U.S. arenas with Wings, to his intimate 2007 set at Amoeba records in Los Angeles.

The albums in the collection are the first full length commercial release of Amoeba Gig, from 2007; the 1993 concert album Paul Is Live; the live-in-the-studio set of 1988, Choba B CCCP; and the chart-topping triple LP of 1976, Wings Over America. The releases thus capture landmark shows in McCartney's unrivalled history over a period of more than 30 years, and will be issued by MPL/Capitol/Universal Music Enterprises.

The double LP Amoeba Gig captures the recording of the surprise free concert that Paul gave at Amoeba Music in Hollywood on June 27, 2007. Until now, only four songs from the performance have seen wide release as the Amoeba's Secret EP, of which two were Grammy-nominated, "That Was Me" and "I Saw Her Standing There." Late in 2012, a 12-song portion of the show was made available free to premium members of PaulMcCartney.com as Live in Los Angeles — The Extended Set.

The new edition of Amoeba Gig is a full 21-song recording of this extremely intimate event, which was attended by Ringo Starr and Woody Harrelson among other notables. It features versions of "Calico Skies" from Flaming Pie, The Beatles' Carl Perkins favorite "Matchbox," Paul's timeless ballad "The Long And Winding Road" and an emotional reading of his song for John Lennon, "Here Today." An exclusive soundcheck performance of "Coming Up" is also part of the new release.

Amoeba Gig has been remixed by McCartney's engineer Steve Orchard and is presented here as a 180-gram 2LP black vinyl set.
