The remastering has a great clarity to it, so much so that you get a better sense of studio acoustics and can here little things which weren't apparent before (Such as Paul shouting in the background to 1985). These are small details, but they do add to your enjoyment.
It is also worth noting the packaging. It has been done fantastically, the cds are housed in a nice, chunky feeling cardboard flip-cover with a fairly hefty little book packed with photos. I really love the way that the cds are held in top-loading (rather than sideways on) cardboard slips with little holes in the front so that they look like l.p paper inserts. Its really cool and a really nice touch.
The contents are great value for money too. The album has been restored to its correct sequencing, so Helen Wheels is on disc 2 which also includes Country Dreamer, Zoo Gang (Which used to be a bonus on Venus and Mars but was always chronologically closer to Band on the Run) and the One Hand Clapping tracks.
But my favourite little extra is the dvd, which has the music videos, extra footage of Lagos and the making of the cover. The real stand out is the One Hand Clapping programme which is just brilliant. It is a documentary from 1974 which lasts for around an hour and I loved every minute of it.
The set is really top notch, especially for the price, and I would highly recommend it. A great place to start if you have never bought a McCartney cd but also with lots of little things for fans who may already have a copy and are wondering whether to upgrade.
If the other remasters in the collection are up to this standard, then they will be excellent.
