Paul and Linda got mugged in Lagos and the demo tapes of all the songs were stolen. Vastly better than the first, Liverpool Oratoria, thanks largely to the absence of corny lyrics. Brainwashed by George Harrison, 18 November 2002. I know Paul could be a pain, but this is beyond the pale. Favourite Track: Whispering Grass 5.
When I heard that Paul was releasing an album of jazz classics backed by a small jazz combo, including Diana Krall on Piano, I thought it had great potential. I hope you enjoy my list, and I hope it encourages you to check out or revisit some of the wonderful catalogue of this awesome human being. Haha, bold or not, the picture does help! Concert for Bangladesh by various artists, 20 December 1971. It's hard to write political songs that don't age immediately cf. I find the title track quite mediocre.
Stop and Smell the Roses by Ringo Starr, 27 October 1981. After this very good album, Ringo released a number of absolute stinkers. Create your own from the page! Think about the experience you had listening to this. While it's more a satire of gun culture than a metaphor for drugs, the middle portion is sung from the perspective of a junkie while a snarling guitar roars like a sedated but angry wild animal. I try and place these works of varying genius in order. They'd just about left behind the beat group stuff, but hadn't hit upon the brilliant songwriting and experimentation of and.
Guests include Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh and Ben Harper. These were done by producer Roy Kerr. I would move this down to 6. The re-release was timed to coincide with a new film, the excellent documentary Eight Days A Week, about their touring years. They are both incredible albums, but in my view neither is as good as their later albums released in 1968 and 1969. The lads from Liverpool put their differences aside and made the perfect farewell. In 1970 there was no new Christmas single available so they gave members this compilation.
It is very repetitive, with multiple takes of most of the songs e. Electric Arguments by The Fireman Paul McCartney and Youth , 24 November 2008. Considering what you said about , why did you rank this one lower? Thankfully Walls and Bridges is a really good album. The tensions that emerged are apparent in the Let It Be film. Interestingly, there are examples of each of the possible scores from 1 to 10 among the albums. Another ambient techno album by Paul and Youth. But McCartney's melodicism on this under-two-minute track is disarmingly direct, piercing through cynical shields by virtue of its sonic purity.
Tug of War by Paul McCartney, 26 April 1982. Never really got into flying, , or , but the last 6 songs make up for it. They started their only world tour to promote this album I saw them in Perth , continuing right through beyond the next album, Wings At the Speed of Sound. A great album with wonderful songs and production. Collects later single A and B sides.
With further evaluation, here's my ultimate list! I don't think that it's mostly junk , just kind of all over the place. Easily the best of their earlier albums. The Beatles' absolute peak as musicians, songwriters and studio innovators. Pipes of Peace Deluxe Edition by Paul McCartney, 2 October 2015. I was going to move it up in the list purely for that song. Favourite Track: Dark Horse 5. It's probably 's peak as a songwriter, though McCartney was rapidly catching up.
This was from the era when packaging was getting really elaborate, with bonus posters and stickers thrown in. Album given away free by a British newspaper, and not released in any other way. Anthology 3 by The Beatles, 28 October 1996. If anything it was a step backwards, more rooted in the 1950s than any of their other albums. Ram by Paul and Linda McCartney, 17 May 1971.
My second-favourite Wings album, although it included no hit singles and is probably their lowest selling record. The album where they really started to innovate in the studio. First album to include the song lyrics on the sleeve. Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band by Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band, 8 October 1990. A Hard Day's Night Kablam! Incredibly eclectic double album of incredible songs.
