Excellent remaster here-smooth, warm, and rich, a real pleasure to listen to, and easily the best "remaster" out of all the Beatle's solo debuts thus far (now second best compared to George Harrison’s 2017 release of “All Things Must Pass”). The subtleties that were heard on the original album remain intact, no booming lowend, just a little retouch that suites the laid-back feeling of the record. When listening, one may forget all the troubles Paul was going through 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 in some instances (namely "Maybe I'm Amazed") 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 with 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. 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, then the album as a whole is ingenious...I must add that "Woman Kind" would have been a perfect closer to the album, ending it on a humorous note, not unlike what was done on "Let It Be" & "Abbey Road" (I typically close the album myself by picking up the needle at the end of "Maybe I'm Amazed"), but then again, that would be repeating something that had been done already in another time. Instead, the album closes with a nod to the future, the experimental (and maybe the most malformed) "Kreen-Akrore" suggests that Paul is still figuring things out for himself-that his "own work" was to be the embodiment of adventure.
