I heard "Every Night" in a store the other day and I always loved that song and I got myself wondering why I don't have Paul McCartney's first solo record, "McCartney" on CD. So I went to amazon.com...............it says 5 new ones available, $99.99 each. Obviously it's out of print..........my next question is, why? To me, it's a classic, and I love that fact that Paul plays all the instruments. A remaster due soon? Anyone?

You might find it at a CD store. They have it here in NYC.

John Lennon was one of the most outspoken critics of the album. In his famous 1970 Rolling Stone interview he spent quite a bit of time trashing it!

However it does have several good songs such as "Maybe I'm Amazed" "Teddy Boy" "Man We was Lonely" "Junk/Singalong Junk" "Oo You" and "That Would Be Something."

I never put much stock in Lennon's criticism of McCartney. I mean, Paul could have just as easily have said, "Dude, I ain't putting needles in my arm", but he took the high road.

There is also a chance that McCartney will release new remasters of his entire catalogue.

A little harsh, no?

McCartney is re-releasing all of his solo albums remastered and allegedly with bonus tracks. BAND ON THE RUN is due soon. That is why, they just went out of print and he has taken all of his solo material to a new label.

Also, there is a period from about 1970-1972, in my personal opinion where I don't believe that you can put much stock in Lennon's critisim in any of the other Beatles, George Martin, or really much of anything. Unfortunately, this is the period that a good majority of the quotes from Lennon come from.

The Beatles animosities towards each other were really strong in 1970 and already by 1972 you can see them winding down quite a bit. Sure all of them have made comments about each other throughout time that have been somewhat controversial, almost all of which I feel are more the fans and media making out to be something more than what it really is. - I think however, when it comes down to it that the real feelings are in the more in depth answers, i.e. John Lennon in the 1980 playboy interview after the interviewer is kinda taking something John says as a critisim of Paul and he says something along the lines of "you must understand that I think Paul is an incredible artist, why do you think I chose him & Yoko as my only 2 partners ever in my life, because I think they are the best artists ever".

Also music is so subjective. I mean John, George & Ringo all critsized RAM in 1971. The critics hated it too. HOWEVER, it was a #1 album and in all these years, it's still my favorite McCartney album. Over the years, it has taken on a much brighter view by the critics and I know several people who hold in very high regard. And believe me, I think McCartney has made a lot of really great under-rated (as well as a lot of crap).

I think the McCARTNEY album is also an amazing album. I know George Harrison had critisized it mostly based on the fact that it was all Paul. He felt he should have gone out and been working with Jim Keltner & Klaus Voormann and other session guys. Paul didn't want to do that because he knew that's what everyone expected. In fact, you'll notice Paul is the only one who didn't work with a group of famous session guys on his albums in the 70's.

John Lennon & Yoko Ono snorted heroin from 1968-1969 and then quit cold turkey.

Except on the RAM album he worked with Denny Seiwell, Dave Spinozza and Hugh Mccracken. Denny Seiwell was a session musician before joining Wings.

Another peachhead sent me a link to ebay where they have a remaster of "McCartney" for $10.80. I have the same remaster series for the records "Ram" and "Winds Wild Life" and they sound pretty good. I'm interested in opinions...........I think I'm better off waiting for the NEW remaster. It could be a quantum leap in sound..........I mean, look what they did with the Beatles records.

Yes, very true! That is the exception.

He did audition each of them before making the album, hoping that they would make a new band... Obviously Dave & Hugh refused.
