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 album 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 music on this remastered version when compared to the original's vocals. 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 as the steppingstone for his solo career, 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. The album is "just Paul", both creatively and emotionally, his "Paul of the Beatles" identity stripped away with the band's input entirely absent. While John and George were liberating themselves from "The Clever Beatles" on their solo debuts, Paul's 1st offering was a process of another kind, a painful process of starting from scratch and rebuilding on his own. It's as if some of the songs that were judged as incomplete and scetch-like at the time 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.

This is a pretty bad album. If not for the exhilarating 'Maybe I'm Amazed', this album contains very few McCartney musical treasures. 'Maybe I'm Amazed' was an important song for Sir Paul, because this was his first outing as a solo act. 'Maybe I'm Amazed' is as infectious a pop tune as any Beatle song. There was the feeling that maybe the world could go on without the Fab Four.

To be fair to Sir Paul, it's obvious he did not take this first solo album seriously. Much of the lp sounds like so much goofing around in a recording studio. 'Every Night' is one of those cloying melodies that McCartney does so well. as is the sentimental 'Junk'. 'That Would Be Something' is nothing but a hook. Just about ANY instrumental from the sixties is more compelling than 'Momma Miss America'.

IMHO, all of the Beatles' solo work pales against the efforts of the Fab Four. McCartney's most successful solo recording, 'Band on the Run', sounds in many ways like a Beatle album. This first solo lp does not age well at all. In fact, I would go so far as to say that this recording is a complete embarrassment considering that McCartney had spent the last seven years as a certified pop music genius. Maybe he needed a break. Maybe the magic was over.

None of the "STAO-3363" releases have any matrix numbers or helpful information on identifying between the releases. I have an album which has information which makes it look like a UK release (the Hollywood address with the Apple Records INC) but other information which clearly states it was made in the US. I really need a matrix number to figure out what is going on, I have no idea if the vinyl and sleeve got mixed up somewhere over the years.
