McCartney was feeling excluded from the band and his decisions, in his eyes, were often being ignored. Then, on September 26, 1969, John Lennon announced that he was leaving the Beatles following the recording of Abbey Road. McCartney secluded himself in his Scotland farm, which caused even more strain against his fellow band-mates. During his seclusion, Paul began recording, in secrecy, his solo debut. This date created conflict with Ringo Starr’s debut album, which was supposed to be released March 27. Paul allowed the album to be delayed but found out that Neil had already postponed the release to June without his permission. In addition, producer Phil Spector revived the Get Back album, now called Let It Be, and had completed the record, along with the documentary film of the same name. This delayed the album much further.
Paul McCartney is not the first Beatles' member to release a solo album. John Lennon has already done some solo stuff like Two Virgins or The Wedding Album. Ringo Starr has just released Sentimental Journey in March 1970. And George Harrison works on a solo album too, All Things Must Pass being scheduled for November of that same year. Paul's solo album, simply entitled McCartney, doesn't please the critics because of its simplicity and its under-production. Anyway the album reaches in the charts, right behind Bridge Over Trouble Water by Simon and Garfunkel
