Photo Courtesy - Hear Music/Amazon(NEW YORK) -- The deluxe re-issue of the Wings classic album Band on the Run hits stores Tuesday.  Paul McCartney, who's been posting webisodes discussing the release on his website, points out the re-issue was done because he "personally like[s] to give people value for money."

He also says that some of the added features in the set include extra Polaroid photos taken by McCartney's late wife, Linda.  McCartney says that "she took way more than appear on the poster" included in the original release that features the band members.

Sir Paul says another added feature in the deluxe edition is "a film we took in Lagos," where the album was recorded.  The film, which is previously unreleased, shows the band "knocking around with the local people, having a bit of fun."  McCartney says another previously unseen film included in the set is "the making of the cover."

In addition to the DVD footage, the Band on the Run re-issue includes a 120-page book featuring unreleased photos, alternate tracks, an audio documentary and an option to digitally download all the tracks, the audio documentary and all the video footage.
