I love Memory Almost Full! Only Mama Knows is the best song to rock out to, Dance Tonight incites reminiscing of the Paul concert in July, which I'm always willing to look back on! And I like to think Vintage Clothes is a call to the young Beatlemaniacs, kind of telling us to be ourselves... that's probably not what he meant by the lyrics, but it's good enough for me! a-hard-days-night-george-9

 

And about Nod Your Head, I don't think it's a reference to John. Then again I'm not too fond of the song in the first place so I don't think I would know! a-hard-days-night-paul-11 It's just one of those tunes where you think, "Paul, what on earth are you doing?"

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

Please see my comments for the McCartney II album.

Speaking of the McCartney II album thread, I love Zig's post about "Oooh, did I really put this crap out there?"

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I have to disagree. I feel his last great album was 'Driving Rain' I cannot stand his last three albums except for a few songs. I guess we all have our opinions which is what makes this site so wonderful.

I still feel he did his best work was with Wings (especially with Linda's background vocals) but do love 'McCartney', 'Ram', 'Tug Of War', Flowers In The Dirt, 'Off The Ground, 'Flaming Pie' and 'Driving Rain'.

Mr. Sun King never responded to my comments above from my December 27th post. I cannot believe there is no one else out there that agrees with my comments.

Hi Inner Light- I'm not sure what you are disagreeing with as there are 5 posts between your last on 12/27 and today's. In any event, you are absolutely correct about the varying opinions making this site wonderful. Glad you could be a part of it (especailly since you seem to be a fellow George fan).

I'm one of those who is such a hardcore fan of the group that I hardly have any of their solo material. I just went out and got John's box set, so I'm OK there - now I just have to go out and get some George and Paul (other than the compilations I already have).

I say all this because you mentioned Flaming Pie. That's about the 4th or 5th time I've seen someone in this forum write favorably about this album, so it is definitely on my wish list.

Thanks.mal-evans

Wow - another double post more than 3 months apart.

Listened to this for the first time today. It wasn't really my cup of tea. I will give it a second listen however, thanks to the second from last track, The End Of The End. It's really the only one that made me turn up the volume.

Initially, I'm glad I only paid $3 for it. I also thought, this may be a bit of a clunker (my opinion only) by Macca standards but most musical acts could only hope for something this good.

Still looking forward to exploring more solo stuff from the second Beatle.a-hard-days-night-paul-8
