Visit our main website at: http://www.sh-boommagazine.com

Paul McCartney has releaseed expanded and remastered deluxe versions of his solo albums McCartney and McCartney II.

   The albums are both available as 2CD Special Editions and Deluxe Editions, and also include DVDs and bonus material such as live recordings and B-sides. They are also available as 2-disc vinyl editions and as digital downloads.

   These re-issues follow the release of the remastered version of Paul McCartney & Wings’ classic 1973 album Band on the Run last November.

   McCartney was originally released in April 1970, one month before The Beatles’ final album Let It Be. It included the classic track ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’.

   Originally issued in May 1980, McCartney II featured songs such as ‘Coming Up’, ‘Waterfalls’ and ‘Temporary Secretary’. It marked McCartney’s return to solo recording after nine years of touring and releasing albums with Wings.

   Paul McCartney is understood to have personally supervised all aspects of the reissued albums, with the remastering work carried out at Abbey Road using the same team that recently remastered the complete Beatles catalogue.

   McCartney is available as a 2CD Special Edition featuring the original remastered album, plus seven bonus tracks. These include the previously unreleased outtakes ‘Suicide’ and ‘Don’t Cry Baby’, and a rare live 1979 recording of ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’.

   For collectors, the reissue is also available as a lavishly packaged 2 CD+1 DVD Deluxe Edition. It includes an exclusive bonus DVD featuring rare and previously unseen footage, along with a 128-page hardback book containing exclusive and unpublished photos by Paul and Linda McCartney. It also contains an illustrated history of the making of the album, and expanded track by track information. Detailed historical information about the film content is also included.

   McCartney II is also available as a 2CD Special Edition featuring the original remastered album, plus eight bonus tracks including B-Sides and alternative versions. The bonus audio CD includes a live 1979 version of ‘Coming Up’ and the Christmas classic ‘Wonderful Christmastime’.

   The 3CD+1DVD Deluxe Edition of McCartney II comes with an exclusive bonus DVD featuring rare and previously unseen footage (including performances of ‘Coming Up’ and a new video for the unreleased track ‘Blue Sway’). It also includes eight rare bonus tracks that are exclusive to this edition.

   Like the McCartney package, the McCartney II Deluxe Edition contains the 128-page hardback book, original album and single artwork, an illustrated history of the making of the album, and expanded track by track information.
