Pure McCartney playlist

Pure McCartney - a glorified playlist
Thanks to Spotify, the new compilation album by Paul McCartney is easily compiled from tracks already out there. What's more, Levi Weiss has already saved us the trouble of compiling it ourselves, if you have Spotify, just click here.
Of course, some of these tracks are the 1993 remasters, likely to be replaced by newer remasters on the official compilation.
You may also compile this list on other streaming platforms where McCartney's catalogue is available. This really drives home the point what an unnecessary release this is. What would have meant something, is if he had given us "Cold Cuts", the full McCartney II album, the lost McCartney album or a Paul McCartney Anthology with tracks that were left out on previous albums.

I think the point we must realize is that it's not always about die-hard fans like us who buy everything or what WE "need". Think of this as a set a casual fan may pick up as an upgrade to "Wings' Greatest", "All The Best" or "Wingspan". Somebody who's interested in Paul's career a little more than a greatest hits album but not enough to shell out for every single album. Or even a young Beatles fan who hasn't yet explored the solo stuff. I for one think it's a neat collection even though I may not agree with every inclusion or exclusion and I already have it all. I'm looking forward to it anyway. It's Paul's red and blue album in a way.

Let's face it, Paul has been very good to his real fans in the past few years with the "Archives" series, and there's certainly more to come. Simply put, if you don't "need" it, don't buy it. Seriously. It's not redundant. There has been no McCartney compilation in fifteen years!

Nighthawk, I totally agree and yet it is beyond me why there is no "Hope Of Deliverance", "My Brave Face" or "This One". "Bip Bop" and "We All Stand Together" are bitter pills to swallow instead. I also could never understand why Wings' Greatest did not include "Listen To What The Man Said".
