        Note: Amazon only has black vinyl, so price is less. Paul’s site has the colored vinyl for more.

          Has anyone seen anything that tells whether or not this is remastered?  In the description, I am not seeing anything to that effect, which leads me to believe this is a straight reissue (well first time issue on vinyl).  In other words, my 1998 CD would be the same as a new CD, other than packaging.

          Basically for me it will come down to purchasing if it is remastered and passing otherwise.  Like many of you, I've spent so much money re-buying stuff I already own (it's a disease being a Macca completist), I'm trying to draw some line in the sand.  But happy for those who have not had a chance to own some of these things that have been out of print.

            To answer my own question:

            Wide Prairie, a posthumous 1998 compilation of Linda McCartney recordings spanning the early 1970s through the late 1990s, will be re-released 2nd August via MPL / Capitol / UMe having been remastered at Abbey Road Studios under Paul's supervision.

            The other question I have is whether or not it is being issued on CD.  The description mentions the vinyl editions and digital and streaming, but doesn't specify a CD.  None on the pre-order sites I have seen show a CD option.  

             

              Nope, no CD version. My friend burned me a copy of her CD last month, so it is funny it is being reissued now!

                I guess if you want a remastered recording of this album you'll have to buy the vinyl album....and then in three months time the cd version will be issued so you can  buy the album again !!!

                    Yes, my 98 cd is good enough for me too.

                      ...and me as well. I just wish Linda had finished the album sooner and been around to promote it herself.  

                        It’s available through Music Vaultz now.

                        If you also buy one of Paul’s latest releases, like the Amoeba Gig, you will spend enough to get free shipping. Only has to be over $50 Canadian which is $37.63 U.S.

                          I've got the LP and CD editions released back in 1998, which are perhaps not easy are to find nowadays, so I'm glad more fans will have an opportunity to buy Linda's and listen to her songs.
