Paul and Linda McCartney‘s 1971 album RAM has been half-speed remastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road. Its reissue is available for pre-order now for release on 14 May.

Originally released in May 1971, RAM served as the follow-up to Paul’s 1970 debut solo album McCartney. The record was also the only McCartney album to be credited to both Paul and his late wife Linda.

RAM was recorded over a five-month period from the autumn of 1970 onwards, in the time immediately after the dissolution of The Beatles. The LP was started in sessions in New York but created mainly at the couple’s farm in Scotland, and first released by Apple in May 1971.

The album’s appearance came just over a year after Paul’s solo debut McCartney, and unlike that one-man recording, RAM featured guests such as Denny Seiwell, the drummer who would soon become a co-founding member of Wings. Hugh McCracken and David Spinozza also featured on guitar.

The 50th anniversary, limited edition half-speed mastered vinyl pressing of RAM is available for pre-order now.
