Paul McCartney's two classic solo albums, " McCartney", and "McCartney II" will be re-released June 14th in the United States.
Both albums will be remastered by the same team that did the Beatles reissues a couple of years ago, and will feature rare and previously unreleased bonus tracks. There will also be a couple of different "special" and "deluxe" editions available..with a variety of other items like dvd's and picture books. New remastered vinyl versions will also be released.
"McCartney" is the album that out in 1970 right as Paul announced the Beatles breakup. It includes the studio version of "Maybe I'm Amazed." A live version recorded in 1976 became a Top Ten hit.
"McCartney II" was released in 1980 and contained the hit "Coming Up." However the hit was a live version recorded by Wings "Coming Up Live In Glasgow." It was on a B-side of a 45 sent to radio stations and that's the one that got radio airplay. Eventually the record company stuck that song on a 7" 33rpm single and slid it into the sleeve of the album as a bonus. This new version will include that song on a bonus disc.

Paul is also giving a preview of some of the remastered songs. Here's the song "That Would Be Something" from "McCartney."
