I can’t believe I never got around to writing about My Love before, considering it’s still such an important song to Paul, or that there hasn’t been a thread on it till now. Anyway, here’s the piece.

arguably Paul’s greatest vocal performance post Beatles depending on what you like. Maybe I’m Amazed we get to hear him wailing, but My Love has those gentle high notes that are just so impressive and comforting. To be honest, this performance is unlike anything that he’d ever done in his whole career.

The guitar solo is one of of the very best in hi solo work. I can see why Paul was so authoritative when it came to the live performances and he insisted it was played the same way as on the record. It is a beautiful song.
