Glad it came in, LHL!!

 

Paul bits that was x-posted at the news thread:

* You may still have until morning UK time to try to win a wristband via Paul's Twitter to his HMV signing.

* Links to the 6 Music Live show: audio, video (thanks Joe) and a clip at YouTube.

* Links to the Radio 2 show: audio (starts about 3:15) As for video:

We’ll also be bringing you video highlights which you can watch on the BBC Red Button, and here on the BBC Radio 2 website, from Friday 7 November 2013.

* Meant to post earlier - 7 songs Paul performed for the Jimmy Fallon audience.

* WogBlog has a roundup with photos of extras in the various versions of "New."

* WogBlog also links to a site to download HD tracks from the album and links to interviews at Spotify (which, incidentally, has the new album).

Same here, I have to listen at least once a day, it seems. My kids are really digging it, too (they've been loving the songs New and Queenie Eye the past month).

Anyone like I Can Bet? I find the song catchy as hell and it reminds me of mid-70s Wings, especially with the synth solo. That one's been stuck in my head for days!

It's starting to grow on me.

Generally, I either like or love most of the songs. The only ones I'm not too keen on are the two bonus tracks on the US/UK CD, though I love Struggle. And even though I liked "Save Us" live when he played it at Jimmy Kimmel, the studio version is wearing thin, to say the least.

How did you hear Struggle?  Did you buy the Japanese version?

Nice.

From that song, I laughed at the line about the "big green bus". It reminded me of Derek Taylor's hack job regarding the "big green jobs". From Joe's article on Derek Taylor in the 'People' section...

I was pleased when George's Daily Express column fell to me, but I started on the wrong foot. I did a real ghosting job. George's father was a bus driver, so I invented a conversation between his father and him in typical popular-newspaper style. It went like this: 'So my dad said to me, "don't worry about me, son, you stick to your guitar and I'll carry on driving the big green jobs."'

I went down to London to deliver George's first column and I was asked by Brian, 'Oh, would you read it out for the boys? I'd like them to hear it.' So I had to take this column out of my pocket and, as if George had written it, I started reading it: '...stick to your guitar and I'll carry on driving the big green jobs.' And George said, 'What are big green jobs?' I said, 'Um, buses - Liverpool buses.' George said, 'I didn't know they were called "big green jobs".' John said, 'I didn't know they were, either.' I said, 'Well, I don't know that they are.' I had just made it up. Which, of course, is what happens on newspapers and that's why all these things sound so phoney.

Anyway, the long and short of it was, after I'd passed the test by admitting that I'd made up 'big green jobs', George said, 'I'll help you write the column - we can do it together.'
