Paul McCartney Flowers In The Dirt Deluxe 3CD+DVD - 530

The latest in the Paul McCartney Archive Collection reissue series, Flowers In The Dirt will receive a deluxe 3CD+DVD reissue on 24 March 2017. Collecting the complete remastered album, the Flowers In The Dirt: Deluxe Edition 3CD+DVD will also boast 18 bonus tracks spread across two CDs (including previously unreleased demos), along with exclusive download content featuring rare B-sides, remixes, single edits and three previously unreleased cassette demos. With 2CD, 2LP and digital formats also available, the reissue looks set to maintain the high standards of previous archival releases in the series.

If McCartney’s post-Beatles career has been often marked by collaboration – with everyone from Michael Jackson to Youth, and even Kanye West and Rihanna, Flowers In The Dirt was no different. Bringing a firebrand’s edge the likes of which John Lennon brought to their co-writes in The Beatles, Elvis Costello co-wrote a number of the album’s songs, notably lead single ‘My Brave Face’, while Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour was also on hand to add his distinctive lead guitar lines to ‘We Got Married’.

But there’s no mistaking that Flowers In The Dirt was McCartney’s show. Working on the album for the best part of a year and a half, he honed his material into a vital collection of work that saw him end the decade where he came in – matching the success of 1980’s McCartney II with another UK No.1 album.

As Rolling Stone noted in their four-star review: “McCartney comes alive on this album”. He was equally invigorated on stage, too, as he embarked on his first world tour since the Wings Over The World trek of 1975-76. Come springtime 2017, Flowers In The Dirt will bloom once again, offering fans the chance to rediscover one of the finest albums of Paul McCartney’s solo career.
