Grammy nominations for Beatles-movie and McCartney

Eight Days a Week: The Touring Years, Ron Howard‘s documentary on the Beatles, is nominated for Best Music Film at the 59th annual Grammy Awards. Paul McCartney received two nominations.

McCartney earned his first nod for the Tug of War Deluxe Edition in the category Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package. McCartney re-issued his 1982 hit album last year, together with it’s follow-up Pipes of Peace. Tug of War was released as part of the ongoing Paul McCartney Archive Collection which has already received recognition from The Grammys with wins for Band on the Run in the 'Best Historical Album’ category, and Wings over America for 'Best Boxed Set or Special Limited Edition Package’. The reissue of RAM was also nominated for 'Best Historical Album’.

McCartney’s second nomination is for Best Remixed Recording. Earlier this year the German dj Timo Maas made a new remix of Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five, the closing track of 1973 album Band on the Run. It took him until 2009 to discover it. Amazed at how fresh the record sounded, he teamed up with Canadian cohort James Teej to contemporise this classic sound and bring a modern edge into it.
