Paul McCartney solo albums
remastered 2011

The new digitally remastered McCartney and McCartney II with a release date of June 14, 2011 mark the second and third releases from the Paul McCartney Archive Collection, an ambitious reissue program from MPL and the Concord Music Group that encompasses 41 years of classic material from McCartney's vast recording career.

Heralded as one of the most beloved solo debuts of all time, McCartney, the smash #1 album originally released April of 1970, yielded the timeless tracks “Every Night” and “Junk” along with the immortal classic “Maybe I’m Amazed.”

Two different digitally remastered McCartney CD packages are available: the Special Edition (2-disc), and the Deluxe Edition (3-disc) which are all described below. There is also a special Vinyl Edition release.

McCartney will be made available as a 2-disc (2 CD) Special Edition featuring the original remastered album plus seven bonus audio tracks including the previously unreleased outtakes “Suicide” and “Don’t Cry Baby” plus a rare live 1979 recording of “Maybe I’m Amazed”.
