According to the Paul biography I got for my birthday earlier this month, "Flaming Pie" refers to John Lennon's favorite story for the origin of the name "Beatles". I oughta check it out some time, for all the praise you guys are giving it.
Many people ask what are Beatles? Why Beatles? Ugh, Beatles, how did the name arrive? So we will tell you. It came in a vision--a man appeared in a flaming pie and said unto them "From this day on you are Beatles with an A." "Thank you, Mister Man," they said, thanking him.

Does this count as a double post even if my first one was 4 1/2 months ago?
Yesterday I picked up Flaming Pie and Memory Almost Full at a used record store for less than $12 USD total.
I haven't listened to MAF yet, but this album is fantastic. So far The World Tonight, Young Boy, Used To Be Bad and the title track are my favorites. When I listen to an album for the first time, I usually favor the rockers. I can easily see the slower ones growing on me quickly as well.
Thanks so much to all who recommended it.

I read mith's post first and I thought she meant a "crime" as in highway robbery.
Then I read your post...

Get your family to fly out to Maine - we'll go shopping. Me & the Missus will be going back often.
BOT: I can't stop listening to this album.

This may be a new record for time elapsed between death and resurrection of a thread, but I'd like to say I just got Flaming Pie yesterday, and it's great. Highlights for me are Flaming Pie, The Songs We Were Singing, and Beautiful Night. Calico Skies is pretty great too, but the Good Evening New York City version is perfect. Just perfect. Blows me away every time. By the way, does the beginning of If You Wanna remind anyone else of The Ballad Of John And Yoko, or am I crazy?

A noticeably different mix of Somedays from a Capitol Records sampler - info can be found here (its a cached copy of the page as the regular site wouldnt load). Its not as gorgeous as the album mix but is still great to hear.

Overall a good album but its quite inconsistent. When you've got classics such as Somedays, Calico Skies and The World Tonight along side rubbish (in my opinion) like Really Love You and Used To Be Bad, it makes the album very inconsistent. However the good tracks outweigh the few clunkers

Two Ahhh Girl-type observations about Heaven on a Sunday
Peaceful, like heaven on a Sunday
Is eternity divided up into days, weeks, years, etc.?
And if I only had one love
Yours would be the one I'd choose
Made me think of the lyrics from Another Girl.

always loved this album. often sorrow has driven Paul to give his best and at that time Linda was ill and maybe even having renewed collaboration with The Beatles, digging in their past, helped him. The world tonight is a great rock, souvenirs is pure soul, heaven on a sunday, somedays...so many beatiful songs...little willow (this one is dedicated to the memory of Maureen, ex Ringo's wife). one of Paul best achievements for me
