Secret Genius: Paul McCartney- "Lost" McCartney II (1980)
Here is the so-called "lost" McCartney II. Like most things bearing the oft-spurious title of "Lost Album," the truth of this one is that it is a collection of outtakes, excluded tracks, and extended or alternate takes. It offers, to my ears, no greater or more complete a vision of the record than the extended rerelease of the original discussed below, but it does make for fascinating listening for those, like me, who always want to "hear more." Get it if you want it, I shouldn't have to convince you. There's some seriously cool mysteries on here, though.
