    First, thank you Joe for working your way through Paul’s solo albums!
    They’re as familiar and important as The Beatles’ albums to me, so it’s nice to see them recognized here. And you always provide some little details even I didn’t know before!

    Second, let me express how excellent this album is.
    It’s really tight, and, as your article said, one of his most self-confident works.
    Great rockers like “Spin it on”, “Old Siam Sir” and nice ballads like “Baby’s request” or “Winterrose” – and of course the incredible Rockestra-songs.
    Shame, shame, shame that Paul ended this line-up so quickly with his drug bust in Japan. The tour would have been fantastic.

    A lot of attention is giving to Band on the Run but in my opinion Ram and Back to the Egg are grossly overlooked. Both very strong and albums. Spit It On and Getting Closer absolutley rock but nobody talks about these songs.
