Excellent remaster here-smooth, warm, and deep, a real pleasure to listen to, and easily the best "remaster" out of all the Beatle's solo debuts. The overhaul suites the laid-back feeling of the music so well that the listener may forget how troubled Paul was when creating this sadly underrated gem. The difference between this remaster and the original 70' 1u 1u is in how Paul's beautiful vocals are presented, which are a key factor when listening to the album, they are somehow a little too cozy within the instrumentation on this new update. On the 70' pressing, the vocals were out front, very direct, and filled with raw emotion, revealing a vulnerable man. It is that vulnerability of course that makes Paul's debut so important, not just a mere stepping-stone into his solo career like Ringo's debut, but as a candid look into what it was like for him suddenly finding himself without his best friends and collaborators, although he does have the "lovely Linda" at his side. This album is "McCartney" alone, his "Paul of the Beatles" identity stripped away-the band's input entirely absent. While John and George were relieved and liberating themselves from the chains of "The Clever Beatles" on their solo debuts, Paul's 1st offering was a process of another kind, a painful one of starting from scratch and finding his own heading. It's as if some of the songs that were judged as incomplete and scetch-like upon release were exactly that, incomplete concepts without a little help from his friends, and were offered intentionally as such, making the album as a whole ingenious.
