Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

3.0 out of 5 stars one disc too far June 17 2011
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars McCartney at home May 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars finding his chops again...................... Aug. 7 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
On his debut solo album Paul McCartney plays all the instruments, but more this is an artist finding his chops after the Beatles. This also is a reflection of what is to come as both a solo artist and with Wings. The 13 songs illustrate everything that McCartney will go onto do very well, that is, his albums will contain a pop hit single, 'Maybe I'm Amazed', sensitive singer/songwriter,
'Every Night', and the rocker that always comes close but never reaches the edge, 'Oo You.' In this era of many formats and bonus material that goes along with repackaging, the consumer can decide how they want to indulge. Still whatever packaging you decide to buy, McCartney will be an excellent buy. This is one CD that is easy to find on repeat selection on the home stereo.

4.0 out of 5 stars McCartney Beatle is best Beatle. Aug. 10 2011
Format:Audio CD
I belive "McCartney" is an underrated album. There are some truley Beatles quality songs on here (Every Night, Junk, Man We Was Lonely, Maybe I'm Amazed) and a suprisingly large amout of instrumentals and unfinished/short songs. The short songs reminded me of the second half of Abbey Road with all the songs flowing into each other. Although "McCartney" doesn't have the same flow as Abbey Road.

I use to think John was the genius behind The Beatles, but I'm convinced that Paul was the most talented. Paul plays all the instruments on this record; hes a one man band.

This album should not be over looked by anyone who calls themself a Beatles fan. It has an interesting and unexpected bare bones sound that actually suits McCartney quite well. Though, you can tell Paul's songs and songwriting suffered a little without feedback and input from the other Beatles.

As for the bonus CD...The live stuff is good fun, and I actually prefer the live verson of Every Night to the album verson. Also, Suicide is one of the most interesting songs I've ever heard, it's pure McCartney, love it.
