    I've got a Variant1 of this, and it certainly ISN'T laminated on the inside and out. The seam has split on the front cover, and it reveals 'FLAP REQUIRED K WAY'. This doesn't look like an addition, but it must be, right?

      I had this album as a teenager in the 70's and have reaquired it thankfully. I often looked curiously at the picture of the humping beetles back then. Now, knowing more about the Beatle's relationship at that time, as I looked at the humping beetles and it hit me as I thought, funny a picture of a beetle screwing a beetle when a light came on! A Beatle screwing a Beatle! probably a reference to the lawsuits going on between them at that time..

        To be honest this is my first ever first pressing (not takling about modern vinyl), and I am very happy with this one. Very rich sound.

          A true musical masterpiece - this first uk pressing is as great as can be - really beautiful, clear, dynamic and full of details - a must have for any lover of that album

            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!!!

                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.
