Next McCartney Archive Series Releases – Dates Pushed Back
Posted on August 21, 2014
Seems the never-ending announcements about releases for Beatles or Beatle-related product in the month of September has forced Paul McCartney to delay the release of the next two instalments in his Archive series. We just had an email from Amazon saying that the dates for Venus and Mars and Wings at the Speed of Sound have been pushed back.
It’s not that surprising that something had to give.
We’ve just had the new DVD and BluRay of A Hard Day’s Night, the Beatles Japan Box CD set, and the vinyl re-issue of Lennon’s Shaved Fish. Then in September comes The Beatles In Mono vinyl box set (September 8); the Icon series CD’s for John Lennon and Ringo Starr (both September 9); and the news that a George Harrison The Apple Years CD box set is due for a September 22 release.
The schedule was getting very crowded….not to mention the strain on collectors’ wallets!

Pushed back to when?
It’s not a huge move. It has gone from September 22 to to September 30 (at this stage). I’d suggest that Paul has made a bit of breathing space for the George Harrison “The Apple Years” CD box set, expected on September 22 (the same date as the Wings re-issues were initially expected). It’s still a hugely crowded month though.
