Run Devil Run coverWhen Paul McCartney dug back into his rock 'n' roll roots for 1999's 'Run Devil Run' album, David Gilmour was on hand with his Fender Esquire to play and sing on the whole album. David also played his Gibson lap steel guitar on the title track, and performed alongside the former Beatle at the historic accompanying gig at the Cavern Club in Liverpool.

The album is being reissued as a special Japanese edition, available from August 17th, 2011. It's a Super High Material CD (SHM-CD) which is said to give far better performance, and is compatible with standard CD players. It's part of a five-album Paul Mccartney SHM-CD reissue series.

Unless resident in the country (and we have a few Japanese regulars!) the best way to obtain the set is direct from a retailer in Japan such as Amazon.co.jp or CDJapan who both have this available as a pre-order. Our thanks to Kees Nijpels for the information.
