Product Description

Product Description

Remastered reissue of his first studio album, recorded at his home studio in 1970.

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

Sir Paul launched his solo career in the spring of 1970 just as the Beatles were announcing their split. We now know that McCartney was in poor shape and used this album almost in a theraputic way to console his damaged heart and ego in losing his beloved group and the creative love of his life, John Lennon. This album was savaged by almost everyone upon its initial release, but in the end time has indeed been very kind to it, the things most critised at the time (homemade, demo like feel) are now its strong points. This new remastered version sounds great but still falls a little short of the wonderful job done by Steve Hoffmann for the DCC release over ten years back.
Paul recorded most of the album at his home, but added some polish on a few tracks in London prior to release, and these tracks ('every night' 'maybe I'm amazed' and 'Junk') really stand out. Its not a great LP but certainly a good one. The second 'extra' disc is completely supefluous - some live cuts and two demos that should have stayed in the tape machine, especially the track 'suicide' which is the extended version of a snippet heard on the original LP and believe me the snippet is far better! So its 4 stars for the McCartney album but minus 1 for the silly second disc. Lets hope they get it right when they re-release "Ram" and include b sides and the Mono mix of the record which was only sent out to US disc jockeys in 1971 but mixed by Paul himself.

This album was created at a time when, according to McCartney he could hardly force himself out of bed in the morning ( due to the split up of the Beatles ).
When he did get up it was to get a drink.
Even if that wasn't the case this album still stacks up as one of the great Beatle albums. Yes I'll include this under the Beatles canon as many of the songs, and the general mood of the album is still that of The Beatles.
I could never understand why this album was so savaged by the critics. McCartneys voice is great, the album is inventive and the songs, as always, shine through. Maybe it was because at the time everyone was blaming Paul for the breakup.
My personal favorite on the album is Every Night. It took a while for the lyrics to sink in but:
Ev'ry night i just wanna go out,
Get out of my head.
Ev'ry day i don't wanna get up,
Get out of my bed.
Ev'ry night i want to play out
And ev'ry day i wanna do-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh.
Perfectly describes how he was feeling and typically ends on an upbeat note telling us that he wants to do-do things. Simple and beautiful.
My second favorite is the song snippet "The Lovely Linda". Say what you will about her, this songs clearly shows Pauls love in a playful sixties word picture.
Maybe I'm Amazed is great. The hit of the album although not as infectious or funloving as the above two.
Any of these three could easily have appeared on a Beatles album. Superior music.

Here is my review of what I think of Paul's first solo album. It just gets three stars because it's not great, but it's not bad...
1. Lovely Linda
The album starts of with this half-minute warm-up. "The Lovely Linda" lets you know right away the direction this album will take. If you're not grabbed in by this one, you'll probably not warm up to the album as a whole. McCartney strums an acoustic guitar and recites lyrics that seem to come out of the spirit of the summer of love (three years earlier!). He sings " Linda, with the lovely flowers in her hair" and abruptly ends the song with the last guitar chord and a silly giggle. The fun is just beginning!!
2. That Would Be Something
The second song, "That would be something" reminds me almost of the off-the-cuff numbers from the White Album. Paul moves over to electric guitar for this song, and again, sings minimal lyrics over his little riff. The drums are simple but creative, with hits to the cymbals and patting and thumping on guitar cases.
3. Valentine Day
The first of several instrumental. This one is very short indeed, and could easily have been the type of song he would put somewhere in the White Album. The first three songs on McCartney are the simplest, weakest and most "made-up" sounding on the whole album. He could have put "Maybe I'm Amazed" FIRST, but he chose to put it in much later.
4. Every Night
The first "real" song on McCartney. He has performed this song serveral times in concert over the years. This is the simplest and most original version. Definitely has the "home" sound to it. How it COULD have sounded done in Abbey Road with a few session musicians?!?

McCartney (1970.) Paul McCartney's first solo album.
In 1970, fans of The Beatles were devastated due to the news that the band they had grown up with had finally disbanded. After nearly a decade together, John, George, Ringo, and Paul all went their separate ways, pursuing solo careers along the way. One of the greatest strengths of The Beatles was a songwriting partership between Lennon and McCartney, but now the two were no longer a functional unit. Would Paul succeed at making music, even without his partnership with John? Read on for my review of McCartney, Paul McCartney's first solo album.
The biggest hit to emerge from this album is, obviously, Maybe I'm Amazed. This song is arguably Paul's biggest solo hit, and it was the only true hit to come off from this release. Over the course of this album, it becomes painfully evident that Paul hasn't found his voice as a solo artist yet. Although songs like Maybe I'm Amazed are, well, amazing, many of these tracks just seem to fall flat. The opening track here, The Lovely Linda, is (rather obviously) Paul's ode to his wife of the day. Unfortunately, this and the second track, That Would Be Something, seem like unpolished, half-finished musical ideas. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad Paul wanted to pay homage to his wife through a song, but he could have done so much better of a job. Likewise, Paul makes the same mistake his former Beatles comrade Ringo Starr made in 1970 - attempting country/western (at least Paul didn't do a whole album of country songs like Ringo did!) Junk, Singalong Junk and Man We Was Lonely, while good pop-oriented country-based tunes, just don't sound like the Paul McCartney fans know and love. Although a number of songs on the album fall flat, a few of then are actually very good.
