MACCA - Pure McCartney (VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection #46)



The work that VooDoo has done set the gold standard in terms of sound quality, attention to detail and completeness. I really believe that these are all you're going to need for Macca. As well, there are some releases that have been added to give a more well-rounded view of his career.   These are all @320, converted from original FLAC files.  As noted above, this is not my work, but they don't seem to be currently available anywhere. So I plan to post one per day, until the complete series is available again. We are now in the final stretch - this series will have 50 posts in total.  After that, we'll be back to business as usual with some new BlankFrank compilations!

Note: This is a six-CD version of the original 2 or 4 disc compilation. Also includes recording notes for each track.  Other than omitting "Girl's School", this set is just about perfect and gives a nice, actually the best, even-handed view of his career. Though there is nothing new here, the sound is perfect and it's highly recommended!


 Original Notes: 
By request. And hey, it's the release date anyway, right?  :) The audio has been updated so it now contains all the new re-masters with one exception - With A Little Luck, as I used the full-length for that one. As I didn't know what the booklet would look like, I've included different artwork for the inserts. Why couldn't Paul put THIS set out instead of the half-assed official set, I'll never know.. Anyway, that's what I'm here for, I suppose...  :wink: Enjoy!  :hi:

MACCA - Out There - Live In Japan (VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection #45)



The work that VooDoo has done set the gold standard in terms of sound quality, attention to detail and completeness. I really believe that these are all you're going to need for Macca. As well, there are some releases that have been added to give a more well-rounded view of his career.   These are all @320, converted from original FLAC files.  As noted above, this is not my work, but they don't seem to be currently available anywhere. So I plan to post one per day, until the complete series is available again. We are now in the final stretch - this series will have 50 posts in total.  After that, we'll be back to business as usual with some new BlankFrank compilations!

 Original Notes: CD 1 + CD 2, tracks 1-10

On April 28, 2015 Paul and his band played the Nippon Budokan Hall in Tokyo. The same place as where The Beatles played Japan in 1966. The concert was filmed and professionally recorded for Japanese television. To that end the show was abbreviated to two hours. So, only 30 songs were played, and not as usual, around 40. While a number of regular songs were dropped from the set, it was the debut performance of the Beatles song ‘Another Girl’.
The full concert was televised on July 11, 2015. And naturally, soon appeared on bootleg: Complete Live at the Budokan 2015.


CD 2

11-12 – On July 18, 2008, Billy Joel performed the last concert in the legendary William A. Shea Municipal Stadium in New York, before it would be dismantled. At the end of the show, Paul McCartney suddenly appeared to play two songs with Billy: ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ and ‘Let It Be’.

13-16 – "This won't be topped," said Paul Rudd at the conclusion of Saturday Night Live, after Paul McCatney’s performance on December 11, 2010 in the NBC Studio, New York City.

17-20 – On October 7, 2013, three days before the release of his New album, Paul played a ten song set for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,at the Rockefeller Center, New York City. The final three songs of the show are represented here.

21 – Paul returned to the NBC Studio, on February 15, 2015, for the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Live. ‘Maybe I'm Amazed’ was introduced by Keith Richards.

NEW (VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection #44)

MACCA - Kisses On The Bottom (VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection #43)



Original Notes: In 2010 Paul decided that he wanted to record an album with songs that were popular when his parents were young: the Twenties and Thirties. He contacted producer Tommy LiPuma, who in March of that year, came over to his house to speak about the project and discuss some songs.
The first recordings happened in April 2011, in the Capitol Studios in Hollywood, where Frank Sinatra recorded. LiPuma wrote the arrangements and contacted the A-class jazz musicians, like Diana Krall. Of the nine songs recorded there was a new song written by Paul: ‘Only Our Hearts’, while another was a remake of ‘Baby’s Request” from Back to the Egg.
Then, in May more songs were recorded in the Avatar Studios in New York City. Again Paul added one newly written song: ‘My Valentine’.
In October, orchestrations were added by the London Symphony Orchestra, in the Abbey Road Studios and finally mixing happened in Paul’s studio in Sussex.

MACCA - Good Evening New York City (VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection #42)



CD 1, tracks 1-22
CD 2, tracks 1-11

The US opening show of the Summer Live ’09 tour, recorded on July 17, 2009 at the inaugural concert at the Mets’ brand new Citi Field ballpark. The sold-out crowd of some 45,000 endured rain showers from start to finish.

A year earlier, on July 19, 2008, Billy Joel had played at the same spot: the last ever concert in the SHEA Stadium, before it was dismantled . For the occasions Paul had appeared unannounced, to play two songs with Joel. (see Out There - Live in Japan - Ultimate Archive Collection - cd2, tracks 11 and 12)
So, this time the piano man returned the favor and came to duet with Paul on ‘I Saw Her Standing there’ (cd 9, track 9).

For this live performance of ‘Helter Skelter’, Paul won his first ever solo Grammy, in the category ‘solo rock vocal’.

The three consecutive concerts in Citi Field were filmed and recorded for a dvd, that appeared on November 14, 2009 as Good Evening New York City.

CD 2, tracks 12-18

A few days earlier, on Wednesday July 15, 2009, Paul returned to the Ed Sullivan theater, site of the Beatles' U.S. television debut in 1964, to be a guest on the "Late Show with David Letterman" and perform for the crowd outside atop the theatre’s marque.
The show was included as a bonus DVD with the Deluxe Edition of Good Evening New York City.

CD 2, track 19

Another version of ‘Helter Skelter’, recorded on December 12, 2012, during the The Concert for Sandy Relief in Madison Square Garden. Released as an iTunes download, on January 6, 2013.

MACCA - Live In Los Angeles (VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection #40)



I'm posting the Macca's complete series of VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection compiled by David1Marx.  The work that VooDoo did has set the gold standard in terms of sound quality, attention to detail and completeness. I really believe that these are all you're going to need for Macca. As well, there are some releases that have been added to give a more well-rounded view of his career.   These are all @320, converted from original FLAC files.  As noted above, this is not my work, but they don't seem to be currently available anywhere. So I plan to post one per day, until the complete series is available again.

 Original Notes: Starting on June 7, 2007 Paul played some intimate concerts with his band to promote Memory Almost Full. These show were only announced on the afternoon of the concert and tickets were free. Two of these show ere recorded and (part of) the recordings were released in different forms and on seperate markets.

Hollywood: Amoebe Music store

On June 27, 2007 Paul gave an in-store performance at the famed Los Angeles record shop, Amoeba Music. Apparently Ringo Starr and Jeff Lynne were in the audience.
Paul was supported by his touring band, but as Wix was busy organizing a tribute concert for the tenth anniversary of the death of Princess Diana back in London, he was replaced by David Arch.

From the set list secured by a fan after the concert, it is known that 21 songs were played.

On September 5th, ten songs were transmitted by the Santa Monica public radio station KCRW on their show Morning Becomes Eclectic. Two months later, the NRK radio station P1 in Norway had all these plus four more songs.

On November 5, four songs of the Amoebe gig apperaed officially in the United Kingdom, spread over three formats of the ‘Ever Present Past’ single: ‘Only Mama Knows’ and ‘Dance Tonight’ on the CD single, ‘House of Wax’ on the vinyl single and ‘That Was Me’ (plus ‘Only Mama Knows’ once more) as a Digital Bundle (ie iTunes download package).

A week later, on November 13, a 4-track EP, called Amoeba’s Secret was released in America. The limited vinyl edition was only sold in Amoeba record store's, for $6:98. The four songs are: ‘Only Mama Knows’, ‘C Moon’, ‘That Was Me’ and ‘I Saw Her Standing There’

On January 27, 2009 however Amoeba's Secret became available again, on CD and download formats.
After two of the songs from Amoeba's Secret became nominated for 2008 Grammy Awards (‘I Saw Her Standing There’ for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance and ‘That Was Me’ for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance) the Amoebe’s Secret songs became available again in January 2009 in the USA and Japan, as a CD-EP and as digital downloads.
Neither song won.

Almost exactly a year later, on January 17, 2010, a dozen songs from the concert were collected on a cd, called
Live in Los Angeles. This was given as a free cd by The Mail on Sunday in the U.K. and the Irish Sunday Mail in Ireland.

On November 16, 2012, finally the Paul McCartney website released an extended version of the Amoeba show titled Live in Los Angeles – The Extended Set free to "premium" members of the website. This was augmented with two songs previously available: ‘Nod Your Head’ and ‘House of Wax’.


London: iTunes Festival

Two weeks after the show in Amoebe Music, Paul and his band played for 350 fans in the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) on The Mall in London, just off Trafalgar Square. Over 31 consecutive nights in July 2007, the first ever iTunes Festival took place there, with more than 60 acts performing. Paul played on the fifth night.
This became an annual music festival, but is now called the Apple Music Festival and is relocated to The Roundhouse arts centre in Camden Town. Since 2014, there’s also an American counterpart, at the Moody Theater in Austin, Texas.

Every show was professionally recorded, and several of these exclusive recordings were made available to preview and buy on iTunes. So, on August 21, 2007, a 6-track digital EP iTunes Festival: London by Paul McCartney became available. Produced by David Kahne.


London: BBC Electric Proms 2007

There’s one more concert Paul played in that same period, but that one’s a bit different. On October 25, 2007 he and his band played in the Roundhouse in London as part of the BBC Electric Proms 2007. For three songs, the band was augmented with a string section: ‘Only Mama Knows’, ‘Calico Skies’ and 'Eleanor Rigby’.

More than 7 years later, on December 3, 2014, 17 of the 24 songs of the concert became available as download by iTunes, but only until February 2015.


CD 1

1-14 - Live in Los Angeles – The Extended Set, as released as free download on November 16, 2012

15-23 and CD 2 - 1-15 download version of the BBC Electric Proms 2007 concert: iTunes: Live at the Electric Proms 2007
16-19 - 4-track EP version Amoeba’s Secret.

20-21- on June 8, 2007 – the day after his first secret show, in the Electric Ballroom in Camden, Paul was a guest in Later with Jools Holland on BBC TV. He performed two songs with his band: ‘Dance Tonight’ and ‘Only Mama Knows’.

Live In Los Angeles (VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection #40)

MACCA - Memory Almost Full (VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection #39)


Original Notes: "Don't live in the past... Don't hold onto something that's changing fast"... So said the man, but hasn't that what we've all been doing here for the past year? Holding onto the past? Well, perhaps, but as he also said, "What went out is coming back", and so here we are - coming back to revisit the UAC series for the next two installments - 2007's Memory Almost Full, and Live In Los Angeles - recorded in 2007, but released in full in 2010 (actually, the deluxe edition was released in 2012, but I digress). Thanks to overly nosy folks, the surprise of having the much sought-after "Unbricked" version of MAF on this set has been ruined... Anyway, while it may seem strange to be able to do this sort of thing with the standard issue CD, to these ears, it DOES sound a bit better than the standard version. I remember reading how the guy did it in the original torrent, but there was a lot of technical jargon involved, and it's been many years since I first got this version, so I forgot. Anyway, you can listen for yourself and let your ears decide if it's any better.

For MAF, I've added a bunch of relevant material from the era, including the full iTunes live EP (all six songs), an audio rip of the live DVD that came with the deluxe edition (with the pink cover), all those dreaded Nod Your Head remixes (IMHO, the worst thing Macca ever released!), a few obscure downloads (like the acoustic + instrumental versions of Dance Tonight) and several nice tracks from the era (like Boots And Sand, Walk With You and My Soul). Plus there were a few live b-sides included, which although the live tracks wound up being included in Live In Los Angeles, they all had different fades for the singles, which made them necessary inclusions here. All of which help make this a nice, comprehensive look at Paul during this era.

In September 2003 Paul and his touring band record nine demos at his Hog Hill Mill studio.

A few weeks later, album sessions for Memory Almost Full start at Abbey Road Studios, with producer David Kahne (Sugar Ray, Sublime, Kelly Clarkson). Kahne had produced McCartney's 2001 effort, Driving Rain, and a host of live recordings since then.
However after only a few days, something went wrong – allegedly Paul was hitting the bottle and was very touchy. He wants someone else to produce him. George Martin suggests Nigel Godrich (Radiohead).

The sessions are cut short and they start recording from scratch on new material, in another studio and without the band. These recordings will be released on Chaos and Creation in the Backyard.

However there are long gaps between the sessions with Goldrich, sometime even months. So, like Paul says in a short interview, published in Q in July 2004: "In March and April I started work on a new album with David Kahne, who produced Driving Rain, and then I was out in Los Angeles with Nigel Godrich. I'm going to make a great album. That's what I'm saying. Not "I hope to", but "I will." That's how you have to approach it.”

Songs recorded in Spring 2004 are: ‘You Tell Me’, ‘Only Mama Knows’, ‘Vintage Clothes’, ‘That Was Me’, ‘Feet in the Clouds’, ‘House of Wax’, ‘The End of the End’, and ‘Whole Life’. Most of the time, Paul works alone, without the band, like he did with Goldrich. In a burst of creativity, ‘Mr Bellamy’, ‘Ever Present Past’, ‘Gratitude’, ‘Nod Your Head’ and ‘In Private’ were all recorded on the same day, in March.

Two years pass before Paul and Kahne resume to sessions, this time mostly in Pauls’ Hog Hill Mill studio (although Kahne’s SeeSquared Studios in New York, Henson Studios in Los Angeles, RAK and AIR studios in London). The band is asked to help polish the songs. They work until July 2006.

In January 2007, Paul finally finishes the recordings on his own, at Hog Hill Mill. ‘Dance Tonight’, the last song written for the album, was recorded and ‘Feet In The Clouds’ and ‘222’ were reworked, while other titles were completed.

The album was mixed by Kahne and Andy Wallace.

‘Dance Tonight’ was the first UK single. On June 18, 2007 it was first available as download, and five weeks later, on July 23 followed (only in the UK) a Picture-Shape-Disc with the same track as b-side. ‘Dance Tonight’ got nominated for a 2008 Grammy as Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.

The first US single, ‘Ever Present Past’, made its radio debut on 20 April 2007 and became available as a download single on May 15, 2007. In the UK it was the second single, on November 5, 2007, with different live tracks from Amoeba’s Secret concert on various formats.

The third single, ‘Nod Your Head’, was released as a digital download single on August 28, 2007 via the iTunes Store.

MACCA- The Space Within Us (VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection #38)



Original Notes: Okay guys, here's the live album that never was... but definitely should have been! After I did Back In The World a few months ago, some folks suggested I give the 2005 tour a try to see what I could do about it. Truth be told, that was something I had secretly wanted to try anyway, but it seemed far too daunting a task to try. Then I re-watched The Space Within Us DVD and I remembered how torn I was by this release because there were some truly great performances of inspired setlist choices, yet the presentation (with the interview breaks between every song) made experiencing the concern an excruciating ordeal. We here at Voo-Doo Records decided that the time was right to try and create a live album that would disperse with the inane interstitial segments and just present the songs as a flowing live album, done in the traditional Macca live album style (see Wings Over America + Back In The World) where most of the between song banter is omitted entirely. This allowed for even more music, which is a good thing! Especially considering the fact that the decision was made to cull all the official releases from this era (2004-2005) to try and include every song performed during these shows. The 2004 setlist was a different animal than the 2005 model, to be sure. As Paul played many songs during this time that he never played before (or again), this decision made the most sense to encapsulate as much unique material onto one set. So for the record, there is material from the Space Within Us, Live In Red Square (including some of the bonus St. Petersburg cuts from that DVD), and Glastonbury (from The McCartney Years DVD), all mixed together. Even with all of those sources, there were STILL a few songs that I didn't have an official source for, so for those I turned to the St. Petersburg video, which although is inline, is also in mono. I tried to make the transitions into/out of those songs as smooth as possible but there's only so much one could do. I considered the alternative of leaving them out altogether, but the allure of including live versions of "You Won't See Me" + "In Spite Of All The Danger" was too great to pass up. As far as those transitions throughout the first two discs (which make up the main concert portion), I tried to make them all as smooth as possible, which was kinda tough considering all of the different sources. I think it came out pretty well, despite having eight mono cuts on disc one and a further two (the first two, in fact) on the second disc. THIS is the live album Paul should have released from this tour, IMHO...

As there was a lot of other material from the era that was released, I've included the complete sets Paul played at the Superbowl + Live 8, along with the Secret Website show, which was slightly earlier than the rest of the material included here. I put it here for a few reasons - one, I had no space on Back In The World to include it. Two, I didn't have the material in such great shape at that time (thanks recce for the DVD rip!  :thx: ). Three, if I wanted this set to be the bridge between Back In The US and Live In LA, I needed to have that material SOMEWHERE! So it's all on disc three. For disc four, I've decided to include the radio show disc that came with the Space DVD. It's actually pretty decent and includes a bunch of live songs not available elsewhere (albeit with a few chopped up). The problem with the disc as included in the DVD is that the show is presented as two 30-minute tracks, which means there's no listening to a particular song. I fixed that by adding track markers at the beginning of every musical segment. As the show included two of the AOL Sessions tracks, it made sense to include the other four songs from that show as bonuses on the disc. So it's now all there.

One thing I have to say is that I worked like a dog to get this one together, especially in time for my trip in a few hours. As a matter of fact, I have been working on these things pretty much non-stop since I started this series little more than three months ago. At the time I began this, I envisioned about two or three titles a month (which is a frantic pace when you consider how quickly Paul has been getting the official sets out to us). Well, I'm sure you've realized that in three months I have gotten FIFTEEN titles out. That's five a month and one full third of the entire catalog. My point is that I am exhausted right now and will be taking a few weeks break before I begin work on the next one. Don't worry - I will not quit this series. I need time to start planning out the next several releases as I've done for most of this series. See, as far back as Back In The World, I basically planned out what the next several would be - in the same order (more or less) as I put them out. It was all leading up to this one, and now I have nothing planned. So I need to think this through and start planning it out so I can have each set be the best it could be. That will take time. Not too much time - like I said, a few weeks is all. So enjoy this one - Hell, enjoy ALL of them (if ya can!  :wink: ) and I promise there will be more soon. For now, here's over five hours of classic live Macca...

CD 1 and CD 2

Dave has places his notes for the first two cd’s in the main article. For some tracks, he has indicated that he could choose from 2 or 3 sources. However, he hasn’t noted wich was his final decission, it’s difficult to say where exactly some tracks come from.

So, I’ll post the sources for these cd’s here and your guess is as good as mine.

MACCA - Chaos And Creation In The Backyard (VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection #37)


I'm posting the Macca's complete series of VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection compiled by David1Marx.  The work that VooDoo did has set the gold standard in terms of sound quality, attention to detail and completeness. I really believe that these are all you're going to need for Macca. As well, there are some releases that have been added to give a more well-rounded view of his career.   These are all @320, converted from original FLAC files.  As noted above, this is not my work, but they don't seem to be currently available anywhere. So I plan to post one per day, until the complete series is available again.

MACCA - Twin Freaks (VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection #36)



Original Notes: The main album is Twin Freaks, which was released on vinyl + download in 2005. To augment this set, I've added all the Wingspan releases (that were originally compiled on an excellent boot CD back in 2001), along with any other "remixed" Macca tracks from the era (such as the Radio Slave versions of Temporary Secretary and the Noir & Kruse remixes of Silly Love Songs). The point here was to make this a one-stop shopping place to obtain all the Macca remixes that were released in one way or another during this time. Keeping some of that Wingspan spirit, I have added the spoken introductions to the various songs that were found on the Wingspan promotional CD sampler. As they had no other "home", this seemed as good a place as any to put them. As I still had a few minutes left over, I've added an excellent fan-remix of Let 'Em In that was floating around the web (and yes, that track is taken from a lossless source!). Add appropriate artwork and voila! - The next release in the Paul McCartney Ultimate Archive collection! If you haven't heard this stuff, I think you might really like some of these remixes as most of them are quite good. Enjoy!!!

MACCA - Back In The World (VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection #35)



I'm posting the Macca's complete series of VooDoo Ultimate Archive Collection compiled by David1Marx.  The work that VooDoo did has set the gold standard in terms of sound quality, attention to detail and completeness. I really believe that these are all you're going to need for Macca. As well, there are some releases that have been added to give a more well-rounded view of his career.   These are all @320, converted from original FLAC files.  As noted above, this is not my work, but they don't seem to be currently available anywhere. So I plan to post one per day, until the complete series is available again.

 Original Notes: Snail or fish...balloon or dolphin... what the heck does that line even mean?!?! Well, around these parts, it means that the next release in the McCartney Ultimate Archive Collection is here! This time, it's a live album (my second favorite live album of his, behind the obvious one) - Back In The World! Astute followers of Macca will note that there were two versions of the album released - Back In The U.S. and Back In The World. Each album had their own tracklisting, meaning each one had some songs the other one didn't. Sheesh! Well, I've combined both releases (including Hey Jude, which was different on both releases) and threw in the soundcheck of "Matchbox", which was available on both the exclusive Best Buy DVD that came with the album and, in better sonic quality on the MPL promo cd The Legendary Songs Of Carl Perkins (of course, that version had the intro slightly clipped, so I took the intro from the DVD to present a complete version!). I also threw in Paul's set from The Concert For George, which gives this set a more complete picture of The Paul McCartney Live Experience - Circa 2002! This was a rather simple one to make, once I figured what it was going to include, which is why it took less time than the others. I figure the guy has nine different live albums that will be a part of this series, so the plan is to space them out so after every few studio albums - BAM! - another live record! BTW, I decided to keep the title as 'Back In The World' because hey, the U.S. is part of the world too! So the title is inclusive to both albums. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this one as I feel it's a great live album (Paul was still in pretty good voice!) and it's now COMPLETE!
