His best album is 'McCartney' and , whadya know!, it's the one with the best front cover, back cover, photographs, graphic design and typography.

Also, and this is often lost over the years with all the CD reissues, the LP records in the 50s, 60s and very early 1970s were much better made than after the early 1970s due to the recycling of vinyl after the Oil Crisis, and the general naffness of printing/design as the decade lumbered on.

And 'McCartney' still incorporates that sheen of plastic on the cover that made The Beatles LPs so attractive, and certainly seems to have been lost by the time of 'Wild Life' in 1971.

The McCartney II cover is ok but his face is too big on it for me, and we already know what he looks like, Id have preferred an abstract photo or artwork like McCartney I, John put a big picture of himself on Imagine but he made it hazy with clouds, more intriguing more thoughtful, I though that was much better than McCartney II, also Paul is pulling a silly face which sorta says he's not serious about it all..





Actually I rather like those "big face" covers. Each Beatle did at least one as a solo artist and they kinda chime with their stereotyped respective personalities...

John the dreamy thinker, Paul the showbiz ham, Ringo the playful big kid and George, the introspective gardener....

This post got me thinking Mr M

with the White Album you got 4 separate pictures glossy portraits of them

NOT pictured as a group

Ironically, this is the same face I make when I listen to McCartney 2
