Vinyl edition box set on four 180g vinyl discs.
This is the only comprehensive career collection released of Paul McCartney's solo works (outside of the The Beatles) from his 45 year solo career.
The collection was personally curated by Paul McCartney and many tracks have been remastered for this collection.
'Me and my team came up with the idea of putting together a collection of my recordings with nothing else in mind other than having something fun to listen to. Maybe to be enjoyed on a long car journey or an evening at home, or at a party with friends. So we got our heads together and came up with these diverse play lists from various periods of my long and winding career. The word career is a bit misleading because to me it has been more like a musical adventure than a proper job. It pleases me, and often amazes me, that I ve been involved in the writing and recording of so many songs, each of them so different from the others. But on my next long car journey this will be the soundtrack for the ride, and a great ride it has been coming up with these songs. So jump in your hot rod or relax in your hot bath and give these ditties a spin and remember that if half of the pleasure we had in putting this collection together communicates itself to you, we ll all be riding high!' - Paul McCartney

Right, now for the review of Pure McCartney Deluxe Edition. It comes beautifully presented - it looks like a book and the first few leaves are photographs and a bit of text - the final leaves are where the CD's are stored. It all looks very deluxe and elegant - congratulations to McCartney and his team.
The collection of songs is somewhat eclectic and obviously, with someone like McCartney, it is inevitable that some classics are missed out (he wrote loads after all) and some, erm, less than classics are included. However, one good thing about the selection is that some songs I had written off as they were on garbage albums (Winedark Open Sea, Good Times Coming/Feel The Sun) shine out as they are not dragged down by the rubbish that populates Off The Ground and Press To Play. I love it. I drove for 5 hours in the car and listened to all four disks and didn't get bored or skip any tracks. I would recommend it - even though you'll have all of these tracks elsewhere (probably) this collection will allow you to see the songs in a different light.
After listening to pure Mccartney double CD release,I can say a resounding - YES!
The three previous 'best of' releases; Wings greatest,All the best and Wingspan - are all very good to excellent compilations,but as time moves on and Paul makes and records more music,this latest release quite obviously becomes more career spanning and inclusive of more selections - this time by the man himself (with a little help from his team).
From first solo single Another day,the amazing - uncle albert/admiral halsey (credit: Paul and Linda mccartney),Wings classics; Band on the run,Let me roll it,beware my love..to the surprise but welcome inclusion of little heard - Arrow through me,this collection delights and lifts the spirit of the listener.i.e. ME!
The running order is quite random,not chronological,which I prefer.the inclusion of the awesome: Sing the changes - under the guise of The Fireman; is also a delight.
Other pivotal tracks in Paul's post Beatles career are also included - won't go through them all,would take too long.but I am personally very pleased with all tracks on here.cd 2: ends with; Junk,back to the start of PM's solo career then (oh the irony).
Complete with glossy booklet and nice photographs' with good info and song credits included; this is a truly wonderful compilation - the best yet - of a Paul Mc Cartney 'solo' career retrospective.
Pure respect (geddit) to Sir Paul Mccartney for your excellent choices.
Though i suspect because of the price difference this the two-disc version will be the bigger-seller, i myself wish on reflection i'd
invested in the 'deluxe edition' (may still consider doing so despite having bought this)
'Paul McCartney' - what can you say that hasn't already been said ? ...he is quite simply a legendary figure in the music business,
a former 'Beatle' of course, one-half of the prolific song-writing team that brought so much success for them.
I have mentioned before, i myself didn't get hooked on the 'Beatles' until late 1963, and earlier the same year turned down the
chance to see them at a venue some 40 miles away, my friend who i'd seen and continued at that time to see so many of the great-acts
of the day from both sides of the Atlantic had bought 4 tickets convinced i would indeed go, i didn't....and of course lived to regret it -
After the 'Fab-Four' split-up in 1970, following a period of reflection 'Paul' carved out a recording career that continues to this day both
a 'solo' career and in the 70's teaming-up with 'Denny Laine' a former member of 'The Moody Blues' and wife 'Linda' to form 'Wings'
Like many i'm sure i followed both his 'solo' career (long may it continue) and his time fronting 'Wings' (both bringing much success
in both the 'singles' and 'album' charts World-Wide down the years.
This release though not offering any new material reflects many of his popular releases from his time after the 'Beatles' ...obviously many
will have most if not all the material to be found on-board, though i myself consider it a collectable as it combines both 'solo' and 'Wings'
releases, and for enthusiasts / collectors a chance to listen to these favourites from both album and 'single's' releases in unfamiliar
If you can, i'd say buy the 4-disc version it offers so much more -
I will include the track listings for this release and for those of the 'deluxe-version' to make it easy for you to check-out on the one page....
