in the next phase of mccartney's album reissues that started with band on the run paul will reissue MCCARTNEY and MCCARTNEY II in many versions including 2 cd edition, vinyl and deluxe editions. imo MCCARTNEY II is one of his worst solo albums. no clue why it needs a 3cd/1 dvd version while MCCARTNEY, which may be his best album outside of anything wings did, at the most is a 2cd/1dvd version. i'd rather have more material from the MCCARTNEY sessions.

anyways can't wait until RAM gets this treatment.
here is the link with the info: http://www.paulmccartney.com/news.php#/2152/2011-04

Personally the only thing I liked on McCartney was "Maybe I'm Amazed."

Never heard the whole thing. I kind of like Coming Up. I was always pretty disappointed with Paul's solo career.

MCCARTNEY, BAND ON THE RUN, RAM, FLAMING PIE and that wingspan collection is all you need by him. maybe download the track "my brave face". "coming up" is really the best track on that album. a lot of MCCARTNEY II sounds like he recorded a weird bad album on purpose to prove anything he releases people will buy

I have Wing Span and Band on the Run. He has some decent stuff but he by necessity will be compared to the genius of the material he wrote for the Beatles and I find it all greatly inferior.

His latest.. Memory Almost Full is grossly underrated.
As is Chaos and Creation in the Backyard.

I enjoyed both albums also.

But the same can be said for every member of The Beatles. Considering the music they wrote with the Beatles that doesn't mean the solo stuff was bad. Who else matched them in any band? No one.

Band On The Run was always the one essential Paul McCartney release for me but I did buy the recent album The Fireman-Electric Arguments, an album that he deliberately left his name off of and which has been considered to be McCartney III by some fans as he used it to put out some unMcCartney sounding odds and ends that he did not want to put on a McCartney album.

I fell in love with the song Sing The Changes that he performed on the David Letterman "Marquee" show a couple years back and bought it solely for that track.

I was surprised to find a couple other gems on that one .

The album Tug of War(1982) is one of my favorites. Although it does have Ebony and Ivory on it, the album has some real gems, especially Here Today, Paul's song for John.

Run Devil Run is another good one; a rockabilly party with friends like David Gilmour sitting in!

I agree with Chuck. Band on the Run, Ram and McCartney are also essential.

Its definitely true for Lennon. I have always felt his solo career was extremely overrated. Neither of them in my opinion came close to touching on their greatness when both got credit for all the Beatles songs and this is true whether they really wrote it themselves or not. The one I felt differently about is Harrison. My opinion is that his was the best solo career mainly because his solo work largely matched his Beatles work. Songs like Beware of Darkness or What is Life are every bit as good as Something or While My Guitar Gently Weeps. Of course this is all just my personal opinion. Others probably feel differently.

Remember that he had to fight to get songs on Beatles album so he had a stock pile. I think George had maybe the best solo album and also some of the worst as some albums got real weak. I like both songs mentioned but think the Beatles examples were better songs but that is a matter of opinion. Again not really a knock as Something and WMGGW's are classics.

Ringo is Ringo. But he does put together awesome All-Star tours so gets out there quite a bit.

Ringo has, in my opinion, the single best of the solo songs though it was supposedly really written by Harrison. I always wanted to hear an extended 20 minute jam of "It Don't Come Easy."

Agreed and possibly because he was the one Beatle you could never accuse of taking himself too seriously.

Clearly true. The others certainly took themselves VERY seriously though John sometimes seemed to catch the absurdity of it all.

Definitely!
A lot of people (at least around here) seem to think Chaos and Creation is great, which is true. But I think Memory Almost Full is as good or better and that doesn't seem to get the attention.

Just my opinion.

Also, yes, since Vertical Man, I have LOVED Ringo's career. Some amazing music there, in my opinion. It just shows what you can do when you get sober and stay sober!

Actually I did!

This was a "one-band band album. Maca played everything!
I didn't care much for the studio version of "Coming Up" (the live version was included on a small vinyl disc), but there were some nice tunes.

"On the Way" was a nice bluesy tune, "Waterfalls" is pretty sweet, "Nobody Knows" - just rocks! I'd love to hear McCartney rework that one for some live shows! "Frozen Jap" - a nice touch of avant garde that doesn't suck! My favortie is "One of These Days" - a fun tune for pickin' on the porch! "Bogey Music" is pretty cool, too!

He also played everything on the original McCartney.
