McCartney | The Albums

Paul McCartney has released an extensive catalogue of songs as a solo artist and has composed classical and electronic music. The Beatles disbanded in 1970, breaking fans' hearts worldwide. However, McCartney had no intention of dropping out of the public eye. He was the first of the Beatles to release a solo album (McCartney, 1970), and though critics' reactions were mixed, the album was a hit with the public. Encouraged, McCartney went on to form Wings, a band that would remain popular throughout the '70s, winning two Grammy Awards and churning out multiple hit singles.
McCartney
Released in 1970, a month before The Beatles' swansong Let It Be, McCartney was Paul's first solo album. Notable for the fact that he performed all instruments and vocals himself, aside from some backing vocals performed by Linda, it's an album rich in experimentation, and the original home of ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’. “The McCartney album was good fun,” Paul remembers, “because I got a machine from EMI, only a four-track, and I just had it in my living room where I lived in London at the time. I’d just go in for the day like Monsieur Magritte. Go in and do a little bit of stuff and make something up, and knock off in the evenings. It was very interesting to do and it had a certain kind of rawness, because I was breaking loose after The Beatles.

RAM
The only album credited to both Paul and Linda McCartney, RAM reached Number 1 in the UK and stayed in the US Top 10 for five months. Recording after he’d left The Beatles and before the formation of Wings, Paul initially flew with Linda to New York to record the songs they'd written but arrived without a band. As Paul recalls, “We were thinking of forming a group at that time, Wings. We went to New York, found a really grotty little basement somewhere and auditioned a bunch of people. We got someone to throw a lot of drummers at us, out of which we picked Denny Seiwell who’s one of the best, and his personality fitted. Then we went in, worked with him, Hugh McCracken, Dave Spinozza, a couple of New York session men, and did RAM.”

Wild Life
Like many debut albums, Wings' Wild Life wasn't a real reflection of what was to come, its guiding ethos being Paul’s intention to record the entire piece quickly. Taking just two weeks, Wild Life was about spontaneity: the opening track ‘Mumbo’ was recorded in one take. “I’d read that Bob Dylan had just made a quick album,” Paul explains, “and I really liked the idea, because we tended to take longer and longer to make records. The early albums by The Beatles hadn’t taken long and it seemed to me that Dylan was getting to that. I was a great admirer of his – and still am to this day – so I thought, Well, if it’s good enough for him, let’s do it

Red Rose Speedway
With the addition of Irish guitarist Henry McCullough, Wings plugged away on their second album Red Rose Speedway through most of 1972, a year in which they issued no album (a first for Paul since The Beatles’ debut). By December they'd accumulated a vast amount of songs, though the idea of releasing a double-album was eventually rejected. The album did, however, include the global hit, ‘My Love’, a song that's since been covered by the likes of Cher, Corinne Bailey Rae and Brenda Lee. One song that was recorded around this time and saved for a later date was ‘Live And Let Die’, from the James Bond film.

Band On The Run
Paul McCartney's fifth album since the break up of The Beatles, Band on the Run was made under difficult circumstances: band members Denny Seiwell and Henry McCullough left before recordings began in Lagos, Nigeria – which itself proved a challenging environment to work in. Despite the setbacks, Paul, Linda and Denny Laine persevered and Band on the Run – complete with its famous celebrity-packed cover art – proved a triumph. The album topped the US chart three separate times; in the UK, it was the biggest selling studio album of 1974 and spent a miraculous 124 weeks on the chart.

Venus And Mars
Venus And Mars was the first of two albums to feature what many (Paul included) regard as the perfect Wings line-up, with the McCartneys and Denny Laine now joined by guitarist Jimmy McCulloch and drummer Joe English. Recording was done in New Orleans and Los Angeles. As Paul remembers, “I felt really comfortable with that band. I had written Venus And Mars songs in Jamaica – we were getting around a bit in those days! – and had the album pretty much mapped out. Even though we didn’t use the style of New Orleans on the album, it influenced the way we felt about the music and added to the spirit.” In September of '75 the band started a year-long worldwide tour in support of the album, playing to over 600,000 people in America alone.

Wings At The Speed Of Sound
Reinforced by months on the road, the cohesion of a settled line-up was much in evidence on Wings At The Speed Of Sound, the band's fifth album. So much so, that each band member had at least one lead vocal performance, including Linda's ‘Cook Of The House’ and Denny Laine’s ‘Time To Hide’. Made at Abbey Road Studios, it was Paul’s first album to be recorded in Britain since Red Rose Speedway. Two more hardy perennials emerged in the shape of ‘Let ’Em In’ and ‘Silly Love Songs’. The album was another massive success, peaking at Number 2 in the UK (where it was the fourth biggest album of the year) and topping the charts in the US, spending nearly a year in the Top 100.

Selected from 90 hours of recordings, Wings over America is a faithful account of the 1975-76 world tour that captures the band at its peak. It was taped at several of the US shows​, but mixed as if it were a single performance. Paul combined old Beatle favourites with highlights from a solo catalogue that was now achieving real stature. Though an expensive triple disc on vinyl (it had been planned as a double, but a rival bootleg version encouraged Paul to expand it) sales were remarkable and it remains one of very few live albums to make Number 1 in America – incidentally becoming the band's fifth Number 1 album in a row.

London Town
London Town – Wings' seventh album – saw the departure of both Jimmy McCulloch and Joe English from the line-up, Linda’s pregnancy (with James), a song written for Michael Jackson (‘Girlfriend’) and recording one of the biggest-selling singles of all time, ‘Mull of Kintyre’. (Released before the album was completed, the track did not appear ​on London Town until a 1993 reissue.) Despite its title, the album was recorded in the Virgin Islands, not least because of the weather. As Paul said, “We thought of recording London Town in the Virgin Islands on the basis, I think, that it was warmer there. There wasn’t a studio but we took mobile equipment and installed it on a boat – it was as good as being in a proper studio, but if you wanted to have a break you could dive off the side for a swim! In a typical day we’d swim, have breakfast, sunbathe a while, just like you do on holiday, and then putter across in the dinghy to the other boat and make some music for a few hours.” The relaxed atmosphere made for a light, pleasingly laidback and hugely melodic album that went on to achieve huge success.

Wings Greatest
Wings Greatest was the first official retrospective of Paul’s post-Beatles career and included many of his single-only releases since 1970 including ‘Live And Let Die’, ‘Hi Hi Hi’ and ‘Mull Of Kintyre’. Despite there being enough hits to fill a double album, the decision was made to slim it down to one disc, even at the expense of a US Number 1, ‘Listen To What The Man Said’. The album was trailed by a TV advert featuring actors pretending to be members of the public, mouthing along to lyrics from various Wings songs, before Linda, Paul and Denny join a dustman on Abbey Road for a run through of ‘Band on the Run’.

Back To The Egg
Back To The Egg was the ninth and final studio album by Wings, the band having acquired two new members in guitarist Laurence Juber and drummer Steve Holly. The album saw Paul work alongside producer Chris Thomas, who had trained as a producer during recording of The Beatles' 1968 eponymous classic (the White Album). Recorded for the Back To The Egg sessions, though not included on the final album, was the eventual hit single ‘Goodnight Tonight’. Two tracks that did make it, however, were ‘Rockestra Theme’ and ‘So Glad To See You Here’, both recorded under the Rockestra name and featuring contributions by the likes of Pete Townshend, Hank Marvin of The Shadows, Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones and John Bonham and Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour.

PMcCartney II
McCartney II was Paul’s first solo album since the formation of Wings in 1971. While its highly electronic style was certainly innovative, its cosily domestic origins were reminiscent of 1970’s McCartney album. (Aptly, the two were reissued at the same time in 2011, as part of the remastered Paul McCartney Archive Collection, with extra audio and video material.) As Paul said at the time, “I made a couple of albums, the normal way you make albums, and I felt like doing it the homemade way again because I quite like recording like that – where I play all the instruments.

Tug of War
Tug Of War was Paul mcCartney's first solo album after Wings’ split was confirmed, and followed the death of John Lennon, whose memory is poignantly evoked on the track ‘Here Today’. While the title hints at an album about power struggles, Paul saw it more as an album “of opposites”. As he says, it focuses on “duality. Yes and No, Up and Down, Man and Woman. Always some kind of conflict, even if you’re married and in love, she’s still a girl, you’re still a boy… It’s not easy to bring together two sides of a coin.” The album saw him reunite with producer George Martin and included two duets with Stevie Wonder, one of which, ‘Ebony And Ivory’, was Number 1 on both sides of the Atlantic.

Pipes Of Peace
Featuring songs initially recorded during sessions for the Tug Of War album, Pipes Of Peace continued Paul's rich vein of song-writing form and included two massive hits, the Michael Jackson duet ‘Say Say Say’ and the title track. The collaboration with Jackson – then the biggest star on the planet thanks to the success of his Thriller album – extended to another track, the breezy ‘The Man’. Lyrically, the album features Paul’s thoughts on love, peace and the future, centred around the symbol of the pipes of peace.

 Give My Regards To Broad Street
Give My Regards To Broad Street is the soundtrack album to the feature film of the same name, released in 1984 and based on a script written by Paul himself. The plot centres on a chaotic day in Paul’s life following the disappearance of the master tapes for a new album. The majority of the story is told through dream sequences, with each dream soundtracked by re-recorded versions of classic tracks from Paul’s Beatle and post-Beatle careers. The album was preceded by a new composition, ‘No More Lonely Nights’, a global smash that was nominated for both a Golden Globe and a BAFTA for Best Original Song. Once again, the soundtrack peaked at Number 1 in the UK and was certified platinum for sales of over 300,000 copies.

Press To Play
Released in 1986 and featuring collaborations with 10cc's Eric Stewart, Pete Townshend and Phil Collins, Press To Play is an album that is both of its time and timeless. Produced with Hugh Padgham, known for his work with The Police and Genesis, its first single ‘Press’ is a feather-light, drum-machine driven slice of pure '80s pop joy, while ‘Move Over Busker’ mixes in more guitar-driven elements for a brisk burst of energy. As Paul himself put it at the time, “Some of the tracks are completely live – with real people! But the bass on ‘Press’ that’s a machine playing it.”

Choba B CCCP
Choba B CCCP, the Russian translation of “Back In The USSR”, was released in the Soviet Union in 1988, making Paul the first artist from the West to issue an album exclusively for that market. (It was released in the rest of the world following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.) Ruminating on the next stage of his career following 1986's Press To Play, Paul decided he wanted to get back to his roots, so hired three session musicians and spent just two days covering his favourite hits from the 1950s. The recording sessions produced 22 songs in total, 13 of them ending up on the final album, with one of the songs left off being a cover of The Beatles' ‘I Saw Her Standing There’.

Flowers In The Dirt
Mixing technology with traditional instruments such as brass, strings and organ, Flowers In The Dirt featured several tracks composed with fellow musician Elvis Costello. The album – seen by many as a strong return to form – also featured musicians that Paul would come to use regularly like Hamish Stuart, Robbie McIntosh and Chris Whitten, and production from the likes of Trevor Horn, Mitchell Froom and Steve Lipson. The album crashed into the UK charts at Number 1 in June 1989 and spent nearly a year in the US charts. Specifically recorded with a view to live performance (the huge Paul McCartney World Tour started in September of that year), the album has a strongly cohesive feel to it.

Tripping The Live Fantastic
Featuring 37 tracks (across two CDs) and spanning 30 years of rock and roll, Tripping The Live Fantastic was Paul's first official live album as a solo star. Its starting point, he says, was a simple one: “What we tried to do with this album was to give people a chance to take home with them a souvenir of the show; a better quality bootleg of what we hoped was just a good, fun, party night out.” As well as Paul and Linda, the road band by now included Paul “Wix” Wickens, Hamish Stuart, Robbie McIntosh and Chris Whitten. Interspersed with snippets from sound checks recorded around the world, the album was initially released as a double album, before being reissued as an abridged version called Tripping The Live Fantastic: Highlights!.
 Unplugged (The Official Bootleg)
Taping a show in North London as part of MTV's Unplugged series, Paul had a sudden thought. “I figured that as Unplugged would be screened around the world there was every chance that some bright spark would tape the show and turn it into a bootleg, so we decided to bootleg the show ourselves. We heard the tapes in the car driving back. By the time we got home, we’d decided we’d got an album – albeit one of the fastest I’ve ever made.” The show was notable for the TV debut of Paul’s first-ever song  ‘I Lost My Little Girl’, written at the tender age of 14 years old, as well as a cover of Bill Withers' ‘Ain't No Sunshine’, featuring Paul on drums.

Off The Ground
Paul McCartney's first studio album of the 1990s came four years after the critically and commercially successful Flowers In The Dirt. As with that album, Off The Ground featured some collaborations with Elvis Costello, in ‘Mistress And Maid’ and ‘The Lovers That Never Were’. In fact, all the lyrics were given a thorough test, as Paul recalled at the time. “When I came to do this album one of the things I thought was that it might be good to be a little less casual and make sure I’d done my homework, make sure I liked all of the words in the songs. So I got a friend of mine, a poet called Adrian Mitchell, to look through the lyrics as if he was an English teacher. I went through it all with him and I can now say that they’re poet-proof.”

Paul Is Live
Paul Is Live, recorded during the tour in support of Off The Ground, was Paul's fifth live album and is famous for its title's double meaning and the ​rumour-scotching cover art. Ever since the 1969 release of Abbey Road, there had been hoax-fuelled stories of Paul’s untimely death. The new title was a way of saying that this was most definitely not the case. The artwork is a play on the famous Abbey Road cover, with Paul crossing that same street but wearing shoes and using his left hand this time. (Originally, his bare feet and the holding of a cigarette in his right hand had supposedly been clues that it wasn't him on the cover.) As well as a raft of solo, Wings and Beatles favourites, the album also offers an insight into the band's sound checks, the final three songs all being improvised during rehearsals in various locations on the tour.

 
Flaming Pie
Having been heavily involved in The Beatles’ Anthology project, Paul had time to reflect on the standards he and his bandmates had set during their career, and applied these to what would become his first album in four years. Made in a much more spontaneous style, with songs recorded here and there, mostly on holiday, it's an album that luxuriates in its own sense of fun. Featuring producers George Martin and Jeff Lynne, as well as musicians including Steve Miller, Ringo Starr and his own son, James McCartney, Flaming Pie would go on to become one of Paul's most acclaimed albums.

Run Devil Run
Run Devil Run was recorded a year after Linda’s sad death in 1998. At the time, Paul recounted his reasons for making it: “People have said to me one of the things to get over a tragedy is to stay really busy, really busy, but I thought, no, I am not going to do that. I see that one but it's just too easy. It's a bit like denial. So, I thought, well, for at least a year I am not going to do that. So I didn't. I just did whatever came along, or whatever I felt good about. But I thought, well maybe after the end of a year I will start to think of what I want to do, and the immediate project that I had been talking to Linda about was the rock and roll album.”

Wingspan Hits And History
The Wingspan compilation effectively tells the story of how Paul McCartney dared to follow The Beatles, featuring tracks from his hugely successful early solo career, from 1970 to 1984, and many classics performed as Wings. The album features 40 songs and comes in at two-and-a-half hours of McCartney music on a double CD. Wingspan was launched in tandem with a feature-length documentary film of the same name that told the intimate inside story of Wings for the first time. Despite setting themselves the hardest job in rock and roll, in the space of nine years Wings soared to international success with 17 million-seller singles, five US Number 1 albums and eventually a US stadium show that broke The Beatles' attendance record. “It's an intimate scrapbook of us during that time,” Paul said, “charting the dramatic turns of events that we dealt with, how we started out with Wings by really going back to square one, right back to basics, and how the band grew to become one of the biggest-selling acts of the Seventies.”

 
Driving Rain
“This album is a little bit of a voyage into the unknown,” is how Paul described 2001's Driving Rain. “It started with a guy in my New York office saying ‘Who is going to produce your next album? Can I give you some suggestions?’ He sent me a list of possible producers. They were all very good, high-level people, and out of all of them David Kahne was the one I liked best. I liked his approach, he’s very musical, but modern. I met him, liked him: he’s very quiet and very on the ball and in talking it became clear that what he wanted to do and I what I wanted to do were very similar.” Once again, the album represents a burst of creativity, with many of the songs cut in just two weeks. The closing, hidden track, ‘Freedom’, was written as a response to the devastating events of September 11th, a world-changing moment that Paul witnessed from inside a plane on a New York runway.

Back In The US
A double live album, Back In The US features highlights of Paul’s 2002 tour, in support of the previous year’s Driving Rain album. Like the DVD of the same name, it presented highlights from Paul’s first full tour in nearly a decade, from solo classics to Beatles favourites. It also marks the emergence of Paul’s most enduring stage band, including his long term sideman Paul “Wix” Wickens, the guitarists Rusty Anderson and Brian Ray and drummer Abe Laboriel Jr. The album’s release was in fact exclusive to North America and Japan, and it found tremendous success in both.

 
Chaos And Creation In The Backyard
Released to widespread critical acclaim, and earning Paul three Grammy nominations, Chaos And Creation In The Backyard saw McCartney hand over production to the R.E.M and Radiohead collaborator Nigel Godrich. “When Paul and I got together we had a common goal,” said Godrich.  “We wanted to make a great album that was true to Paul.  I think that’s exactly what we did.” “We really made a lot of it up as we went along,” added Paul.  “I’d try something and if it didn’t work I’d try something else until it did.  It was like making a go-cart in the backyard.”  Featuring a black-and-white cover image, taken by his brother Mike, of a young Paul absentmindedly strumming a guitar in his back garden, and with a song inspired by George Harrison ('Friends To Go'), it's a deeply personal collection of songs enhanced by Godrich's fairly stark production.

Memory Almost Full
The David Kahne-produced Memory Almost Full was Paul's first album to be released through Starbucks' Hear Music label. “I actually started Memory Almost Full before the album Chaos And Creation In The Backyard,” Paul remembers. “The first recording session was back in the autumn of 2003 at Abbey Road with my touring band and producer David Kahne. I was right in the middle of it when I began talking with Nigel Godrich about a brand new project [which became Chaos And Creation In The Backyard]. When I was just finishing up everything concerned with Chaos... and had just got the Grammy nominations [in 2006] I ​realised I had this album to go back to and finish off. So I got it out to listen to it again, wondering if I would enjoy it, but actually I really loved it.”

Good Evening New York City
Good Evening New York City immortalised Paul’s historic three-night musical christening of New York’s Citi Field, by the site of the former Shea Stadium. The experience was witnessed by more than 120,000 breathless fans and featured over 30 songs and nearly three hours of music. The July 2009 shows held special significance, being performed on the same hallowed ground that The Beatles, in 1965, played the 34-minute show that set the precedent for modern day rock shows and where, in 2008, Paul joined Billy Joel for the final rock show before the original stadium’s demolition. To return the favour, Joel joined Paul onstage for the first of these shows, helping out on a run through of ‘I Saw Her Standing There’. As documented on Good Evening New York City, ‘I’m Down’ from the 1965 set list was revived for the Citi Field shows, albeit this time played through a PA that was not overpowered by screaming fans – though there were still several thousand who tried.
 Live In Los Angeles
Live In Los Angeles was a covermount CD for The Mail On Sunday newspaper in Britain and Ireland, on 17th January 2010.  It had been recorded during Paul’s unannounced performance at Amoeba Music in Los Angeles on 27th June 2007: a free show, inside the mammoth Hollywood record store. In the audience, small children and grandparents rubbed elbows with the likes of Ringo Starr and Woody Harrelson.  

 
Kisses On The Bottom
Kisses On The Bottom is largely comprised of standards Paul grew up listening to in his childhood, with the addition of two original compositions ‘My Valentine' and ‘Only Our Hearts'. With the help of Grammy Award-winning producer Tommy LiPuma and Diana Krall and her band – as well as guest appearances from Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder – the album was recorded at the legendary Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, as well as in New York and London throughout 2011. 

The album was recorded at the legendary Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, New York and London throughout 2011.  It also features guest musicians Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder, respectively, on the original compositions  ‘My Valentine' and ‘Only Our Hearts'.  Eric also appears on the track ‘Get Yourself Another Fool'.

NEW
It is the eternal question for an artist of Paul McCartney’s stature: what next? What next when you have… well, that list of achievements, with even the long-touted standards album now ticked off with last year’s ‘Kisses On The Bottom’, hardly needs re-iterating. On one level, you might reasonably think that in terms of awards, honours, sales figures, shows and even artistically there is nothing left for him to strive for. But on another, there is always the search for the next truly great song, for the next unexpected challenge. For the new.

'Pure McCartney', a new compilation of his solo, Wings and Fireman work, celebrates that fact, showcasing 67 highlights from one of the most-revered catalogues in music - from 'McCartney' in 1970, his debut solo album, right through to 'Hope For The Future', his 2014 track taken from 'Destiny', the most-anticipated video game of the last decade. Not only is 'Pure McCartney’ a monumental mixtape of some of popular music's most memorable moments from 1970 to the present day, it also features curios for the superfans and some of Paul's personal favourites — all handpicked by the man himself.
