I just got this album and I love it!! Nice and warm. So far my instant favorites are Somedays, Little Willow, Calico Skies (though I prefer the Good Evening NYC version) and If you wanna. But ask me tomorrow and I might choose other ones. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

My favourites on the album are probably Calico Skies and Young Boy. I know what you mean about the GENYC version. I think it's the accordion that makes it.

I'm glad to see both of you reacting positively to this album. I've never heard it, but have seen Macca do the title track live on a concert I recorded from 2003 in Russia. I thought that was a cool song and have been wanting to hear more of the album.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I recommend you this album Zig... I love all the colors of Macca (well, most of them) but Macca nice, down-to-earth is just irresistible. a-hard-days-night-paul-2

Is it mostly his playing (ala McCartney, And McCartney 2) or does he use his band As on Flowers in the Dirt?

Thanks for that, paulsbass. I especially like the fact that you find this to be "his most Beatley album ever." High praise indeed. a-hard-days-night-paul-9

And mith, you said "Macca nice, down-to-earth is just irresistible." I agree. I thoroughly enjoy a his Beatle stuff like that. Stuff like Yesterday, I've Just Seen a Face, Mother nature's Son, etc... 

I can't wait to hear the whole thing now.

He recorded it right after the Anthology series, so that's probably why it sounds so Beatley.

a-hard-days-night-paul-6 Hey nice review Paulsbass.. I'm listening to it a lot..

 

Say, which other Paul album do you recommend me to get? A friend of mine uses as a nickname FlowersintheDirt because she loves that one. What do you think?

I think his best albums were his last two (apart from Band on the Run).

When I was in High School, my best friend had Wings at the Speed of Sound. We wore that sucker out. It was almost transparent!

That's The Problem with Being One of the only Beatles fans at my school. 1 Day, (and we play a song before our day begins) I was Running late, ran to my locker, ran into my class and heard someone say "Evan, That's Your Song". I am the Classic rock dude at my school, or at least in my class. Edit: They were playing "I Am The Walrus"

When I was in Liverpool we drove past a shop called Calico Skies. I'm not sure what it sold. It's very close to Penny Lane.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away
