While in Memphis on Sunday (May 26th), Paul McCartney made his first-ever visit to Elvis Presley’s Graceland mansion. Although McCartney, along with the other Beatles, had met “The King” in 1965, they visited Elvis at his home in Bel Air. McCartney posted on his Facebook account a photo of him holding one of Elvis’ custom made Gibson acoustic guitars and was also photographed placing a “Paul McCartney” pick on his childhood idol’s grave.

In other McCartney news, out today (May 28th) is the latest reissue in Paul McCartney’s Archive Collection — 1976’s triple-album set, Wings Over America. The “Deluxe Version” of the album is by far the most expansive package in the collection, which has previously included such classic albums as McCartney, Ram, Band On The Run, and McCartney II. The chart-topping Wings Over America live album documented McCartney’s sole North American tour of the ’70s — and the only live set by Wings — which at that point featured McCartney’s wife Linda McCartney on keyboards, guitarists Denny Laine and Jimmy McCulloch, and drummer Joe English. Joining the band was a four-piece horn section including Tony Dorsey, Thaddeus Richard, Howie Casey, and Steve Howard.
