Have you created any fans for Paul? My supervisor at work likes classical music. I told her that I had some Paul McCartney cds for her to listen to. She looked at me like I had fish on my face. But after listening to "Working Classical" and then "Ecce Cor Meum", she has changed her tune. I just got "Standing Stone". I know she will like it too.

I got my mom to watch "Chaos and Creation at Abbey Road" with me on YouTube. She now thinks he is a very talented musician. She was very impressed.

I loved sharing Paul with them.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

OK - 'Flowers In The Dirt', 'Flaming Pie' and 'Memory Almost Full' all ordered - can't wait - haven't heard any of them before.

I hope you have refrained from reading what other people say about them -positive and negative- so you can listen with fresh ears and mind and make your own judgements.

Yes indeed, as much as I could.  Some thoughts about their merits (or otherwise) have filtered into my noggin over the years, and I have heard a few of the songs on the 3DVD hits collection which I bought a while back, but otherwise they will all be like new releases - which is REALLY exciting :)

The same goes for the McCartney album - I have never heard that either, even though I had every other 70s McCartney LP 'back in the day'.  I am having a blast catching up with all this stuff.  I'm trying to do just one new one each day - and still have enough to last almost a couple of months.

^ OK - add "Run, Devil, Run" and "Driving Rain" to the list.  Curse you ebay.  Who was it advised me to check out ebay in future? :)

The following people thank trcanberra for this post:

Ha ha - thanks.  I can't get "No other baby" out of my head after watching some of the singles on the McCartney triple DVD set.

Oh, and add "
Off The Ground" to the list - that's 6 in the mail if the sellers all behave :)

 

If they don't behave, we will have to play the torture songs to them (see the George Harrison thread about his music being played as a torture instrument). "Off The Ground" is the cd in my car right now.

On my mp3 player this morning while I was walking my dog, I listened to the album that Paul made for the Russians. All the songs are covers. http://www.paulmccartney.com/a.....oba-b-cccp

The instrumentation is good. The songs are interesting. BUT, FOR ME, mainly the words sung on this album are just a framework on which to hang Paul's voice.
