This pressing was limited to 3000 copies and was sold via Paul McCartney’s European Website. The album sold out as a preorder.
About this copy: This copy of McCartney III is a still sealed yellow vinyl pressing, issued in 2020 on the Capitol label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.

The shrink wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears or holes. There is a 1″ (2.5 cm) split in the top of the cover.
A nice copy of a scarce Paul McCartney LP.

Allmusic.com gave McCartney III a 4 star review:
Paul McCartney faced the COVID-19 lockdown of 2020 like he faced so many other unexpected challenges in his life: he set out to make music on his own. The title of McCartney III positions it as a direct sequel to 1970’s McCartney and 1980’s McCartney II, albums he made in the wake of the respective dissolutions of the Beatles and Wings, a sentiment that rings true in some ways but not in others. Certainly, the one-man-band approach unites all three albums, as does their arrival at the dawn of a new decade, yet McCartney III doesn’t contain a clear undercurrent of Paul processing change in the wake of loss. …McCartney III is constructed at a modest scale, the arrangements so uncluttered that it’s easy to hear the years on McCartney’s voice. Maybe he can’t hit the high notes he way he used to, maybe he sounds a bit weathered, but the change in his singing has a profoundly humanizing effect, especially when heard in conjunction with his distinctive drumming and fuzzed-out guitars. Within these contours, it’s possible to trace the distance between the three McCartney albums. Despite these signs of age, McCartney III isn’t an album about mortality, it’s about finding sustenance in rough times.
