This is by far the best pressing to own of this one! If you can find a clean copy, don’t hesitate. The bass is fat & bouncy, drums crack and are crisp, separation is perfect, 3 dimensional and best of all it’s quiet due to the virgin vinyl used.

Easily my favorite McCartney album, and one of my most favorite albums of all time. The only adjustment I'd make, if any, is I would switch around the B side tracks, so that The Back Seat Of My Car was the opener, Long Haired Lady was the last track, and Heart Of The Country was track 4. Even without that, this album is perfect!!! 5 stars!!!

I don't know which one mine is. Mine has Apple labels. Side 1 has rim text "Mfd. by Apple Records." Side 2 has no rim text. B6 is titled "Back Seat of My Car" on label. Side 1 runout says: SMAS-1-3375-Ƶ92#4 EW/N (stamped 0). Side 2 runout says: SMAS-2-3375-RE1 (could be REI) -Z42#2 CF/EW (stamped 0).

Ram frustrates me and always has. Just as I'm enjoying the whimsy of one moment or getting into the stomp of another, suddenly there's a fly kicking its legs in my soup....a clumsy backing vocal by the wife, or a weak guitar lick, a stray handclap, a corny oompah bit and the irritatingly elusive barbed metaphors in the lyrics (is that about John? is that about Klein? etc,etc). The very first words Paul sings over a promising acoustic guitar intro are 'piss off' and somehow I always do end up a bit pissed off when the needle finally reaches the middle of the record. Disappointed....and yeah pissed off that yet again, I've missed the point or focussed on the rough edges rather than the loveliness.
The album art matches it perfectly. Family snaps cut out hamfistedly and surrounded in places by glue and glitter, felt tip pen and meaningless scribble. I'm all for collages but not when there's the promise of sonething better. I do actually snigger when I see John's pisstake of it, holding the ears of a pig. I think yeah right, tell him John.

I much much MUCH prefer McCartney I. :)

This is rammed with good things. All of it. Masterpiece.

Sounds like Beatles lost tracks or unreleased material except Uncle Albert which is nice but sounds like something from Gilbert and Sullivan. Overall lacking in catchy songs, full of dull "trying too hard" rock numbers.

Uneven, incoherent. A pretty shitty album all in all. And that´s coming from a Beatlemaniac. He should have focused on the sheepherding or goatfarming or whatever.

My favorite album of all time. Without a doubt! I adore everything Paul makes, but Linda adds something special to this album. I’m glad they made it together. The album art is beautiful, messy, vibrant, homely, silly, and thoughtful- just like the songs. 6 stars out of 5. 3 thumbs up. <3

First record where imposter William Shepherd didn't care anymore if - or how much - he looked like Paul. And as we all know even this didn't interfere with his fraud - most people believe that he's the real McCoy until today! :-(

Is still my favourite McCartney album. Great songs. Amazing vocals! Just listen to Monkberry Moon Delight. Linda's off kilter backing vocals work brilliantly.
