As excited as we are of getting two new songs, we have to admit that as long standing fans, we are getting a bit tired of this constant repackaging of music that we have already bought.

Ok, next time I'll wait for the end of schedule. I bought the Target exclusive CD, the High-Res files, then the japanese CD and now I will buy this one too. It's a great album, but a Collector's edition should be released with regular CD first. We have come a long way from the Beatles' no single tracks on the albums policy. Remember that, Paul?

This still gives way better value than the Harrison Apple years set, talk about short changing :-)

I am surprised that Paul is now apparently (re)releasing three albums at the end of October. I don't think that this new version of "New" will be favourable for sales of "Venus and Mars" and "At the Speed of Sound". Does he perhaps think that there are two sets of fans out there, young McCartney fans who are buying the "New" album and middle-aged Wings fans buying the old stuff?

For those who want just the extra songs, expect them to show up on iTunes as an EP — or at least the ability to buy them separately, as they did with Complete Kisses. That will save some money for the audio collectors who don't care about having all the video.

(Though I am disappointed the Target video isn't available on this one because Target Canada didn't carry that version.)

As for the archives and timing, remember that The Family Way was released with one of the archives, and some of the other albums always seem to get slipped in at the same time as other archival releases. It's really two different markets: the ones who buy the archives will buy them at release and then they'll sit as box sets in your local music shop.
