Just received and played the Paul McCartney Archive Collection VENUS AND MARS -- outstanding LP. Heavy 180 gram FLAT pressing. Excellent cover and posters -- like the original release. The sound on both LPs met my high expectations. The bass is punchy -- it slams. The vocals are clear and well centered. The sound stage is full, complex, and dynamic. LISTEN TO WHAT THE MAN SAID is still the highlight. It has always seemed to have been mixed separately from the other tracks. The entire song is much more forward, open, and vibrant when compared to the rest of the album. This will be the last copy that I buy. Looking forward to receiving my copy of AT THE SPEED OF SOUND. Highly recommended for McCartney fans!

Like all the recent McCartney series releases, Venus & Mars is very well remastered and sounds extremely good. The shrink-wrap has a small sticker on the back of the album saying "Made In Germany" (this is true of the "Speed Of Sound" disc as well); I have no idea exactly where, but the discs were perfectly flat, quiet, and without defect on my copy. The 2nd "bonus disc" is notable for several desirable tracks, one of which, the "old version" of Rock Show, rocks harder than the original. Or maybe the "old version" WAS the true original (hence its title), in which case, perhaps he should have left well enough alone. McCartney sings the track solo (omitting the shout-along backing vocals) finishing with fantastic (for Wings, at least) dueling guitar solos. For fans, highly recommended!
