Returning to Ebony and Ivory, Paul's solo version was released on the 12" i think and as a bonus track in itunes when Tug Of War was added, along with all of Paul's other albums (it still might be there). Does that improve the song or is it still terrible?

"Ebony and Ivory" deserves its own thread. IMO it's another example of a relatively weak McCartney song reaching #1 in the UK and/or US. So yes it's weak and contributed (along with those other songs) to the long delay in Macca reaching the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame as a solo performer. But who's to argue with a #1 song?.

Everything Macca's done since Flaming Pie has been great - but not a #1 hit in sight.

Back on topic, I've put Flaming Pie, Chaos and Creation and NEW in my multiple CD player, and clicked "random." What a treat.

The perfect triple album!!!

Huffington Post has an article written by a college student on the joys of "New."

Via WogBlog, a music channel in the US called Palladia will be featuring a documentary on NEW on December at 9pm EST:

 

Paul McCartney: Something NEW

THURSDAY, 12/5 at 9p EST -- Something NEW documents the creation of Paul McCartney's latest album 'NEW', widely hailed as possibly the finest solo work of his peerless discography. The doc alternates between intimate footage of the actual recording process and vivid memories and incisive reflections of all involved. The result is an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look into Paul's creative process and his collaboration with the album's star-studded production team.

I get really tired of hype.  It's a great album and all, I know a few folks here have it in their top-5 lists at the moment - but "widely hailed as possibly the finest solo work ...".  How widely?  I haven't seen this claim much.  And then they throw in the 'possibly' to dilute their claim and perhaps deflect attention from the shameless hyperbole they are throwing about to get people interested in their show.  Even if I had access to this channel I think I would skip the show if this is a sample of what it will be like.
