About

From the liner notes:

As for McCartney, Paul’s actual debut album from 1970, the original Archive release included a lot of extras, but nothing really new from the era (save for a longer version of Suicide and an Instrumental version of Oo You, entitled Don’t Cry Baby). To that, I’ve added a few demos from the era and an instrumental version of Maybe I’m Amazed to round out the disc. I should note that while the Archive version (which I’ve used for the album, taken from down sampled versions of the unlimited hi-res audio) generally sounds better than the DCC release, there were a few anomalies where I patched in the DCC. For one, the Archive version of Maybe I’m Amazed cuts off close to four seconds at the fade, so that is
included here. Also, Kreen-Akrore sounds like noise reduction has been applied to the Archive version, whereas on the DCC set it sounds much more natural. So, I’ve opted to include the DCC version here. Anyhoo, that wraps it up for this edition of the UAC series, which I believe is now up to 24 titles! We’re getting there!! I hope y’all enjoy this one and enjoy the holiday as well! See ya when I get back home…

NOTES:
1-14 – McCartney album
Because was essentially barred from accessing any tape of Apple Records, he had no choice but to keep any recording a secret. So he hired one mike and a Studer 4-track machine to record at home, completely on his own: no technician and no musicians. Work started in late December 1969.

Later he booked time (February 10 to 12, 1970) in the Morgan Studios in Willesden, as Billy Martin (a baseman and later manager of the New York Yankees) and once Ringo had left the EMI building on Abbey Road, he finished the recordings and mixing there. Klein, helped by Lennon, tried to postpone the release of Pauls solo album at least twice, but eventually it was released more or less as planned on , released on April 17, 1970.

15-17 – demo’s, probably recorded in July 1971, during the first rehearsals with the band that soon would be called Wings.

18 – Maybe I’m Amazed – One Hand Clapping version, recorded in August 1974 and released on June 13, 2011 on McCartney – Paul McCartney Archive Collection

19-21 – live version with Wings, recorded in the Apollo Theatre, Glasgow, on December 17, 1979 and released on McCartney – Paul McCartney Archive Collection

22 – Suicide – complete version of the 8 seconds fragment used on the album. Recorded on February 21, 1970 in the EMI studio on Abbey Road.

23 – Don’t Cry Baby – alt. take of ‘Oo You’, recorded in December 1969 and released on McCartney -Paul McCartney Archive Collection

24- Maybe I’m Amazed – instrumental version, probably created from tracks available at Paul McCartney’s New Rude Studio in 2012.

25 – Woman Kind – undated demo, released on McCartney – Paul McCartney Archive Collection

How do you buy these unofficial albums? WTF?

@chris Unfortunately you can't buy them as they are "fans for fans" releases. So you have to find someone who is willing to share them with you.
