Digitally remastered and expanded deluxe three disc (two CD + DVD) edition of the former Beatle's debut solo album. Heralded as one of the most beloved solo debuts of all time, McCartney, the smash #1 album, originally released April of 1970, yielded the timeless tracks "Every Night" and "Junk" along with the immortal classic "Maybe I'm Amazed." The bonus CD includes previously unreleased demos and live tracks. The bonus DVD contains previously unreleased footage. For collectors, the reissue will also be made available as a lavishly packaged 3 disc (2 CD, 1 DVD) Deluxe Edition which includes an exclusive bonus DVD featuring rare and previously unseen footage, an extraordinary 128-page hard bound book containing many exclusive and unpublished photos by Paul and Linda McCartney, original album artwork, bonus audio tracks, an illustrated history of the making of the album, and expanded track by track information for the two audio discs as well as detailed historical information on the film content.

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.

Paul McCartney retreated from the spotlight of the Beatles by recording his first solo album at his home studio, performing nearly all of the instruments himself. Appropriately, McCartney has an endearingly ragged, homemade quality that makes even its filler – and there is quite a bit of filler – rather ingratiating. Only a handful of songs rank as full-fledged McCartney classics, but those songs – the light folk-pop of "That Would Be Something," the sweet, gentle "Every Night," the ramshackle Beatles leftover "Teddy Boy," and the staggering "Maybe I'm Amazed" (not coincidentally the only rocker on the album) – are full of all the easy melodic charm that is McCartney's trademark. The rest of the album is charmingly slight, especially if it is read as a way to bring Paul back to earth after the heights of the Beatles. At the time the throwaway nature of much of the material was a shock, but it has become charming in retrospect. Unfortunately, in retrospect it also appears as a harbinger of the nagging mediocrity that would plague McCartney's entire solo career.
