After personal tragedy, McCartney returned to the studio to record covers of some his favorite oldies. The result was entirely successful.
Driving Rain is a difficult and often problematic record from McCartney, but it is also not without its moments.
Flaming Pie is a top notch record from Paul. After participating in The Beatles Anthology project, he wanted to bring his creative A-game to his next release. He succeeded.
This bootleg collection features both greatest hits and unreleased tracks, B-sides, and more.
Off The Ground is the scrappy underdog of McCartney’s solo albums. Not a big seller and rarely mentioned among fans, it remains a mostly strong and consistent record throughout.
This entirely serviceable collection of oldie cover songs was originally released in the USSR and worldwide 3 years later.
Flaming Pie marked Paul’s “return” of sorts, especially with its Elvis Costello collaborations. Overall an impressive album with some amazing highs and a few quizzical lows.
With Press To Play, Paul goes contemporary 80s with producer Hugh Padgham. The results are surprising, but possibly the least McCartneyesque album of his career.
Your enjoyment of the live, 3-LP Wings Over America will largely rest upon your affinity for the mid-1970s Wings era. But it remains a strong live release from a tight rockin’ band.
The film was a disaster, but the soundtrack album consisting of re-recordings of Beatles and Wings tunes and a few new tracks definitely has its moments.
