I have owned this album since it was released during my senior year in high school. The Beatles were part of the soundtrack of my adolescence. ABBEY ROAD had been out for seven months and LET IT BE wouldn''t be released for another month. I eagerly snatched up this album and played it from beginning to end. My opinion of the album hasn''t changed much in the intervening forty-four years. There are some terrific songs. "Maybe I''m Amazed" is, well, amazing! In Rolling Stone''s collectors edition of Paul McCartney, they named this song as his best solo song. "Junk" came in at No. 7 and "Every Night" came in at No. 13. "Teddy Boy" is another keeper. (Note: Paul recorded a demo of "Junk" as part of the Esher sessions, and the Beatles made several attempts at "Teddy Boy" in 1969--both of these songs appear on THE BEATLES ANTHOLOGY 3.) "That Would Be Something" is another terrific song. Even tracks like "Man We Was Lonely" and "Oo You" bear repeated listens.

There are, however, some mediocre songs. Virtually all of the instrumentals --with the exception of "Singalong Junk"--sound like studio noodling, Worth a listen or two, but nothing really memorable.

The bonus disc is a bit of a mixed bag as well. Anyone hoping for unreleased gems from the vaults will be disappointed. The piano/vocal out-take "Suicide" is of marginal interest. Just like the piano/vocal demo "Women Kind," the songs have an unfinished and unfocused feel. The semi-comic approach to "Women Kind" with its raspberries and less-than-serious vocal make it clear that McCartney wasn''t sure what to do with these songs. The fact that they stayed in the can for forty years should be a pretty good indicator of what he thought of them. The only other song from 1970 is "Don''t Cry Baby," which is actually an instrumental version of "Oo You." The keepers on the bonus disc are the three live tracks from a 1979 Glasgow concert. "Every Night" is nearly doubled in length in this live version, partly because the song is slowed down, but there''s also a great guitar break. The instrumental "Hot As Sun" has an almost calypso feel to it. And then, of course, there''s the show stopper "Maybe I''m Amazed." That song actually appears twice on the bonus disc. Not only as a concert recording, but a more subdued Abbey Road Studios recording taken from One Hand Clapping.

The CD digipak includes a 24-page booklet (glued to the inside front cover) that includes all of the original photos (and many that weren''t) all taken by Paul or his wife Linda as well as lyrics to all of the original songs.

I saw McCartney in concert for the first time this summer and it renewed my interest in his back catalog. When I put this in the CD player and listened to the original album for the first time in nearly four decades, I was surprised how good some of the songs really were. While not his best album, there are more hits than misses. RECOMMENDED [Disc 1 - 35:01; Disc 2 - 25:15]

Review:
McCartney. 2 CD Special Edition 2011

PACKAGING: *****
Nice digipack, all recyclable cardboard sleeve. The front and back of the package is very close to the original album, great job. The photo montage from the original inner gatefold sleeve is now spread out over several pages. The photos look great, pristine. The disc sleeves can tear but the trick is simply pushing up on the hole in the center of the disc

LABEL: *
No Apple label, just plain black, plain.

MUSIC:*****
Listening to this album is like meeting an old friend by the fireplace on a Fall morning. I found myself singing and humming along to many of these songs. It''s rough, almost demo quality at times but that is part of its charm as a piece. It has 2 classic compositions, Maybe I''m Amazed and Singalong Junk. An several other gems like Every Night and Man We Was Lonely.

The second CD contains 7 bonus tracks. Suicide is a ditty that was briefly mixed into Hot As Sun/Glasses. And Don''t Cry Baby is a demo of Oo You. As far as a second bonus disc I would only give this 1 star. This whole package could have been one disc, really wasteful to do the 2 discs but maybe these are limited editions. The CD age is coming to a close.

MASTERING: ****
I have the old Capitol CD, not the Holland remaster from 1993. This new CD sounds marginally better that the older version. That old CD sounds pretty darn good. But the mastering is first rate on this new disc
with some numbers like Lovely Linda jumping out with improved bass and low end clarity.

I guess I''m not as captious as some, but I found these vinyl recordings to be superior to the original LP. Aye, getting the records out of the sleeves was a bit more difficult than usual but nothing that ruin my day or affect the rating I gave these LPs. Being a drummer, I listen for different sounds than others.

LP1: I found the brush work in "Singalong Junk" (and "Junk" itself) cutting through beautifully--as were the cymbals. The acoustic guitar was more apparent on the high end. Bass drum and bass guitar were more evident. Anytime Paul used the snare with the high, crisp sound always sounded better to me than the garbage-can snare sound. the standout songs here are still "Every Night," "Teddy Boy," and "Maybe I''m Amazed."

LP2: [Side A] Love the new harmonies on "Every Night." (Think I heard the same version on an Unplugged concert.] Hearing the whole version (even though an outtake) of "Suicide" was interesting. Glad to know there was more to the song than that little snippet at the end of "Valentine Day." I also enjoyed the vocal--and the reverb on the vocal--live version of "Maybe I''m Amazed."
[Side B] Still another version of "Maybe I''m Amazed." I don''t know of a version of this song that doesn''t sound excellent." Hot as Sun sure sounded different, but I guess McCartney can''t play all the instruments during a live concert. "Oo You" becomes the outtake called Don''t Cry Baby" (complete with the admonition of Paul to one of the children). It''s also become an effective instrumental. Then there''s Women Kind. Very funny but I can see the wisdom in leaving it off the original McCartney LP.

Released a scant week after McCartney announced he was leaving The Beatles -- as shrewd a marketing move as it was dastardly, as Lennon had already announced his intention to leave but was convinced to temporarily keep it to himself for the good of the band -- McCartney wasn''t Paul''s first solo project (he had previous scored the John & Hayley Mills film "The Family Way"). But it was easily his most important, his opening salvo and statement as a solo artist freed from the frustrations and expections with which he had been encumbered as a Beatle.

The result is... certainly something nobody expected. This was a true solo effort; Paul played every instrument on the album! Guitars, bass, drums, percussion, keyboards, mellotron, vocals (with the only assist coming from wife Linda on some backing vocals), Paul did it all with a 4-track recorder, either at home or in the studio. And as a result, the entire album feels entirely homemade.

McCartney is a trifle, but a pleasant, interesting one. Other than the smash hit "Maybe I''m Amazed", which is easily as great as anything he ever recorded as a Beatle (although never released as a single; the version from his live "Wings Over America" went top 10), there''s little else that can be categorized as truly great. What we do have is Paul, for all intents and purposes, getting the Beatles taste out of his mouth and recharging his batteries.

Some of it works nicely. Some of it is forgettable. Some of it is leftover Beatle material. Most of it sounds like interesting outtakes. It''s a testament to where Paul''s head was at in late 69/early 70. "That Lovely Linda" is a throwaway, a twee bit of improvisation he did while testing out his 4-track recorder. "That Would Be Something" is a repetitive piece of piffle, a gentle toe-tapper with some nice acoustic accompaniment. At its best, it would have been a throwaway track on "The White Album.

"Valentine Day" is the album''s first of five instrumentals. Even though he played it entirely himself, it sounds like any other band simply warming up. For the album''s first three songs, we''ve had nothing terrible but nothing really substantial. Thankfully the first fully formed song appears next with "Every Night", a strong, heartfelt tune with great hooks and musicality that we expect from McCartney. And at just over 2.5 minutes, it''s gone too soon.

"Hot as Sun/Glasses" is the 2nd instrumental of the album, which starts with a bit Paul composed in his Quarrymen days and gives it a nice Caribbean spin. It''s instantly more memorable than Valentine Day. The 2nd portion of the track "Glasses" isn''t as good; it consists of tones generated from the rims of glasses, and then breaks into a vocal portion that ends abruptly. Loved the first part of the track; the second, not so much.

"Junk" is another gentle, pleasant acoustic number that Paul was originally demoed for (but left off) The White Album (it can also be heard on Anthology 3). It''s fairly forgettable and, at 2 minutes in length, is gone just in time. The problem is, again, it *feels* like a lesser Beatles track that was left off a studio album for good reason.

"Man We Was Lonely" has that sweet reverb on the opening lick, and I appreciate the vaudeville/ragtime feel of the chorus (although it gets grating real fast.) Linda''s backing vocals are shaky during the verses. An OK song at best, mediocre at worst. The parts are definitely better than the whole.

As we get to Side 2 with "Oo You", Paul is FINALLY starting to rock out again. Nothing wrong with getting down-home and folksy, but he was starting to veer into repetition and Granny music territory. "Oo You" is a solidly good tune, with a strong, punchy rhythm guitar track and some soulful basslines. The rock vibe continues into "Momma Miss America", the 3rd instrumental track and probably the most fully realized one so far. Decent track, but at this point in the album the jam noodles are starting to get a bit tiresome.

"Teddy Boy" is another Beatles leftover, a bouncy, acoustic number from the "Get Back" sessions. I like this little tune, a sort of "Rocky Raccoon" spiritual sequel, and the chorus is kind of infectious. It moves right into "Singalong Junk", the 4th (!) instrumental, this time a retread of "Junk" from earlier in the album. I actually like the instrumental version MUCH better. Maybe because the lyrics are all sorts of dopey treacle.

"Maybe I''m Amazed" is next. As mentioned earlier, it''s 37 delicious flavors of awesome.

"Kreen-Akrore" closes the album with its 5th and final instrumental. At 4:14, it''s the longest (!!) song on the album. It starts with a jungle rhythm, moves into rock territory with crashing guitars and a drum solo (!!!), then into odd chanting, percussion, heavy breathing, distorted guitar licks, more drum fills, and then ends with organs and guitars in crescendo... all for nought. A disappointing ending.

McCartney is an odd album. It''s a down-home, homemade, "I''m gonna noodle around and see what happens" loose-feel project that didn''t amount to a whole lot, but overall isn''t a bad album. I love "Maybe I''m Amazed", and really like "Teddy Boy", "Oo You", "Every Night", and "Singalong Junk". The rest of the album is OK-to-forgettable, and only "Kreen-Akrore" really stinks. If you take this album as it should be taken -- as Paul goofing around in the studio to see what he can come up with -- it''s a gentle, enjoyable romp. But there''s little on it that''s truly lasting.

When McCartney would get to his next album, things would be much different. For the better.

I have four copies of this recording on CD (including DCC and Japan mini LP) and a mint Apple LP from 1970. The sound on this remastered edition bests them all. For almost three hours last night I spent a long time comparing all of them through speakers and then headphones. Hands down, this is the recording to own. The book, for me, is an equal treat. All of these great photos and the back story regarding the release of the LP are awesome. The down side, for me, was that the DVD documentary is nearly parroted word for word in the book (and only Sir Paul''s voice, never his actual image). And no new photos...once again, it''s all straight from the book. The only new things are the concert videos, which, as a collector, I would rather see released in their entirety, not piecemeal on each of McCartney''s current and future releases. The vintage Maybe I''m Amazed music video is the highlight with great home movies accompanying the music. The second CD, with outtakes and live performances is very short and something that I will probably never play again. But overall I am very pleased. Five stars for the remastered CD and book, two stars for the second CD, four stars for the Maybe I''m Amazed video. NOW, GIVE ME A HIGH RESOLUTION 5.1 RELEASE OF THIS RECORDING PAUL (and Band on the Run...not the DTS edition)!!!!!

I own the 1993 British CD of McCartney (1) and compared the sound quality between this release and the newly mastered edition. Unfortunately I don''t hear a vast improvement in the sound, however if you consider this album dates back from 1969/1970 and recorded at home, then you can''t really expect anything spectacular. The music however is superb and timeless. This 1970 album, though recorded at home, sounds a lot better than the 1980 followup "McCartney II", which is the other album I bought at the same time as this one. The mastering sounds very much like -if not the same as - the 2003 Wingspan edition: In other words, "Every Night", Man We Was Lonely" etc, sound exactly the same. Therefore if you must own this album, get either Wingspan, or the heavily discounted 1993 British releases instead of this one unless the price falls significantly. The digipak booklet contains the lyrics and some additional photos of Paul and the family that Linda took in color and B&W. The bonus tracks (7) have not been previously released and are for the most part, live versions of the album tracks or demos of tracks that rightly never saw the light of day, so you are not really missing anything. Given the fact that the newly remastered McCartney albums are not significantly better sounding than the previous releases, this is the last Sir Paul album I will buy. Considering that, for the past (roughly) 20 years his quality of material has suffered significantly, his albums from the 1970s and 1980''s yield more acceptance (and profit) than stuff released after 1990. At least the CDs (alone) are priced reasonably affordable, rather than demanding $20-$25+ like Madness, New Order and George Michael. Call me morbid, but I believe that the passing away of Neil Aspinall greatly benefitted Beatles fans all over. More on this on another CD review.

Paul McCartney has never gotten enough credit for his experimental side, neither while in the Beatles nor during his four-decade-long solo career. But, as the newly released remastered and expanded editions of his 1970 solo debut McCartney and its follow-up, 1980''s McCartney II, unmistakably show, his experimentation is an ongoing feature of his music, along with his flawless melodic flair and penchant for the "silly love songs" that have made him millions of dollars, helped sell millions of records and earned him the derision of many.

In fact, McCartney was initially derided upon release as a half-baked effort that showcased one good song and some tantalizing fragments; when McCartney II came out ten years later, the nasty criticism was even more withering. Now, however, listening to this music in the context of McCartney''s eclectic solo career--which includes albums as disparate as the aptly-named Liverpool Sound Collage, his latest Fireman CD, Electric Arguments, and his classical oratorio Ecce cor Meum--one must conclude that, contrary to popular belief, McCartney is anything but a lazy and pampered superstar: rather, he''s a restless musician who has always done what he wants, commercial strictures be damned.

Both of these albums are homemade affairs, with Paul handling all the instruments and vocals and wife Linda chipping in the odd harmony. While "Maybe I''m Amazed" is the obvious stand-out track on McCartney (with that ringingly perfect guitar fill that would do George Harrison proud), the album also includes the scrappy rockers "Man We Was Lonely" and "Oo You," lovely ballads "Junk" and "Every Night," and bizarre, careening instrumentals "Momma Miss America" and the album''s percussive closer, "Kreen-Akrore."

Because it was released in the midst of The Beatles'' breakup, the MCCARTNEY album has always had a bad odor with a lot of Beatles and McCartney fans, but it doesn''t deserve it. While not as polished as other Beatles or McCartney solo releases, it more than holds its own.

Disc 1 of the Deluxe Edition features the original album in best-ever sound quality. Disc 2 features some fine bonus audio, including the full-length version of "Suicide" (a fragment is on the original LP at the end of "Hot As Sun/Glasses"). It''s a nice track, but it''s understandable why Ol'' Blue Eyes rejected it. The classic "Maybe I''m Amazed" appears in a "clean" version from the 1974 "One Hand Clapping." The film version, available on the DVD included with the BAND ON THE RUN reissue, has a voiceover. Three tracks from the 1979 "Live at Glasgow" concert follow: "Every Night," "Hot As Sun," and another version of "Maybe I''m Amazed." "Don''t Cry Baby" is a terrific instrumental version of "Oo You," with a lullably intro that Paul sings to his daughter Mary. "Women Kind" is a pleasant, but unremarkable, demo from the period.

The DVD has a documentary on the making of the album, a home movie called "The Beach," which is backed by the WORKING CLASSICAL version of "Junk," the "Maybe I''m Amazed" music video, which is in better quality on THE MCCARTNEY YEARS, a version of "Suicide" from the "One Hand Clapping" film that was "missing" from BAND ON THE RUN, versions of "Every Night" and "Hot As Sun" from the CONCERTS FOR THE PEOPLE OF KAMPUCHEA, and versions of "Junk" and "That Would Be Something" from "MTV Unplugged" (the latter track was also on THE MCCARTNEY YEARS).

Hopefully, all of the audio and video from the Glasgow and Kampuchea concerts, plus the entire Unplugged show, will see release someday.

The packaging is fantastic. We finally get a copy of the notorious "press release" announcing The Beatles'' breakup that was included in promo copies of the original album, along with Paul''s ROLLING STONE interview from the period.

4 stars for content, 4.5 stars for audio/video quality, and 5 stars for packaging. Definitely worth your while.

This is the second of the re-release/remastered series from Paul and his first ever solo Album from 1970. It is raw, some tracks are weak, some seem unfinished, unpolished and rushed, but it is the first of the solo Albums where Paul was all alone - without the influence of John Lennon or the production guidance of George Martin. He plays all the instruments on this one and, as a first attempt of setting his own agenda, is a good effort. The record quality sounds great, a lot better than some of the material recorded deserves to be frank. However, it is ''the first release'' so historically that makes it that little bit more collectable. This is a product produced to buy as an investment rather than for the content I would say, but it doesn''t come cheap.

Overall I find this a must buy for any Beatle/McCartney fan and I hope you find like me that it is a good album, and possibly one of Macca''s best post-Beatle ones too!
