Rear Beatles Era Paul McCartney Album Set For Release

(Gibson) Paul McCartney's first non-Beatles work, the soundtrack for the 1966 film The Family Way, will be released for the first time in its original form on CD, according to Examiner.com.

The soundtrack was originally released in January 1967 under the name The George Martin Orchestra though the music was written by McCartney, who also contributed bass, piano and vocals to the recording. Despite the fact that album won an Ivor Novello Award in 1967, it was not released on CD until 1996, and that version was embellished with additional recordings by Canadian guitarist Carl Aubut.

The new disc, released by Varese Sarabande, has been taken from the original mono master tapes and will feature the original running order of McCartney's 13 untitled compositions, along with one bonus track: a previously unreleased stereo mix of "A Theme from The Family Way," the b-side of a single by the Tudor Minstrels. more on this story
