Biography

It is the eternal question for an artist of Paul McCartney’s stature: what next? What next when you have… well, that list of achievements, with even the long-touted standards album now ticked off with last year’s ‘Kisses On The Bottom’, hardly needs re-iterating. On one level, you might reasonably think that in terms of awards, honours, sales figures, shows and ... Read more in Amazon's Paul McCartney Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Paul's first solo outing is very much a homegrown affair with him singing and playing everything (apart from a few harmonies by Linda). The expectations were high, and while not everything clicked, there was enough good stuff for the legend to continue. "That Would Be Something," "Man We Was Lonely," "The Lovely Linda," and "Teddy Boy" all make the grade, but everything is eclipsed by "Maybe I'm Amazed," which remains one of his most enduring songs, up there with anything the Beatles released (and which would have sounded quite at home on Let It Be). --Chris Nickson

5.0 out of 5 stars An Actual REVIEW.... June 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The audio of the McCartney reissue is more than I expected. This was essentially a home recording Paul made in the wake of the Beatles' break up - it just hadn't been announced yet. This remaster has wonderful dynamics compared to the original CD issue, and the 1993 remaster. The drums sound like they're in your room (first snare pop of "Every Night" floored me), the bass is strong but not exaggerated, the acoustic guitars are crisp (never enjoyed "The Lovely Linda" as much as this)

The bonus audio disc is rather short - but I'm glad it's on a separate disc, as the material is not up to the standards of the released album (as is usually the case with bonus tracks) The track that stood out for me was the in-progress backing tracks for "Oo You." The demo version of "Suicide" is only interesting because you can hear it in the context of the ending of "Glasses" from the released album. The bonus audio disc is the weakest part of the set, but still of interest to a McCartney fan (which I am.)

The DVD starts off with the EPK being shown on McCartney's site, and has several interesting "McCartney" album-related performances, most notably 2 performances from the 1979 line-up of Wings. Add in 2 more from MTV Unplugged (remember when MTV had music?) and it's a nice touch. The performance of "Suicide" leaves one wondering why it wasn't used instead of the demo on the bonus audio disc.

All I can say about the book is, THIS is what the extra money is for. Good quality, tons of pictures, very nicely done. A "coffee table" book just like this would easily sell for $30-$40.

4.0 out of 5 stars McCartney Debut November 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
When Paul McCartney released his first solo album and the first true solo studio album by a Beatle in 1970, it was almost universally panned. While it certainly doesn't matchup with any of the Beatles albums, it has aged better than alot of the music of the time. Mr. McCartney recorded the album at his farm and its greatest asset is the simple, down-home feel that permeates it. You can almost picture the newly married and new father just tooling around the house and living the country life and whenever the mood struck him, laying down a new track. He plays all the instruments and other than some backing vocals by Linda, sings all the songs. There are several instrumentals on the album and a couple of songs like "Man We Was Lonely" that are basically just a couple of lines sung over and over, but "Maybe I'm Amazed" is a true gem. The song ranks up there with anything he's done in his solo career and a wouldn't be slighted by songs in the Beatles catalog. Other standout tracks include the sweet "Every Night", "Singalong Junk" & "That Would Be Something".

4.0 out of 5 stars Do it yourself June 14, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There tend to be two prevailing views of this album, as there are with the Beatles album "Let it Be." One is that this is a bunch of amateurish noodlings done at home, with one or two good songs thrown in to give it credibility, and released out of sheer arrogance that everyone would want to hear it because it's by a famous person. The other view is that this is a classic album, displaying McCartney's viruosity as an all-around musician, as well as a funky kind of devil-may-care experimentation. In truth, there is validity to both points of view. Only two tracks are really polished or radio-ready: "Maybe I'm Amazed" and "Every Night." Then there are the Beatle leftovers, "Junk" and "Teddy Boy," which feature excellent melodies. Then there are weird one-offs like "Kreen Akrore" that aren't worth listening to every time. Yet the album does stand as an important testament to the man's mindset at this crucial pivot in his career, and in some ways it stands as a portrait of domestic bliss rather like Lennon's "Double Fantasy" did ten years later. If you are a Paul fan, you will love this album's intimacy.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Laid Back May 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This album is so comforting. I don't know what's up with people who rate this album with 3 stars. The instrumentals are very good. The bass lines was very melodical. Very well played instruments. What struck me about this album what how it's feel and sound was very different than the Beatles. Do this: plug in the white album. And listen..... can't you feel the tension and the pain that is expressed through the music. And Abbey Road....you can still feel it. John's yokoish lyrics and music. McCartney is beatiful. It is so laid back, but not to laid back to filter out the quality of his music. Buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of, if not, the best solo McCartney album. June 15, 2011
By JS
Format:Audio CD
This is not a review, just my two cents. This is a landmark album for McCartney. All instruments and vocals are performed by him. (Music giants Stevie Wonder and Steve Winwood have released similar projects in the 70's as well). This purchase is a no brainer for me. I'm especially interested in the book, which is one of the main reasons that I continue to purchase special edition CD's. Until downloads can outdo a well done hardcopy accompanying book, I'll continue to purchase special editions of my musical heroes, such as this one. Thanks "sirguiatrist" for a review validating my high expectations.
