The Art Of McCartney is a very special project celebrating the songs of Sir Paul McCartney. It features McCartney classics such as Maybe I’m Amazed, My, Love, The Long And Winding Road, When I’m 64, Let It Be, Helter Skelter, Eleanor Rigby, Live And Let Die and many more, recorded by some of the world’s greatest artists and all backed by McCartney’s long time band.
The caliber of artists showing their respect to Paul’s songwriting genius on The Art of McCartney is simply staggering, with likes of Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, The Cure, The Who’s Roger Daltrey, Brian Wilson, Alice Cooper, Dr. John, Yusuf/Cat Stevens, Barry Gibb, Jamie Cullum, Kiss, Chrissie Hynde, ELO legend producer Jeff Lynne among many more lending their talents exclusively for this album.
The Art Of McCartney is the brainchild of Los Angeles producer Ralph Sall, who had the pleasure of working with Sir Paul in 2003 to revive a song from the 1971 Ram sessions for a movie soundtrack. Once Ralph had the idea of an album to honor Paul, he recruited McCartney’s gifted backing band guitarists, Rusty Anderson and Brian Ray, keyboard player Paul “Wix” Wickens, and drummer, Abe Laboriel, Jr. to play the backing tracks of all the songs.
All aspects of Paul’s peerless back catalogue have been explored from The Beatles to his experimental early solo work, to Wings and his latter solo output. Whether it is The Cure’s Robert Smith, Corrine Bailey Rae, Smokey Robinson, Bob Dylan, Billy Joel or Kiss singing, Paul’s timeless songs are re-interpreted in a way that is both new and classic at the same time.
The Art Of McCartney is an audiophile’s dream being available in a beautifully packaged format for the McCartney fan in your life.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectibles, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
