Product Description

Coming Up: Independent Artists Pay Tribute to the Music of Paul McCartney, is the companion to the recently released, Listen to What the Man Said: Popular Artists Pay Tribute to the Music of Paul McCartney. While Listen offers up selections from more established artists such as Barenaked Ladies, They Might Be Giants, Sloan and Matthew Sweet, among others, Coming Up serves to showcase a group of equally talented, yet lesser-known performers, such as Starbelly, Kyf Brewer (the voice behind VH1's Behind The Music) and The Andersons (featuring LA power-pop scenester Robbie Rist who also played the role of Cousin Oliver on TV's The Brady Bunch.) Among the highlights of Coming Up is a track by LA power-pop favorites, Cockeyed Ghost, who do a remake of the little known McCartney/Elvis Costello collaboration called, "Back on My Feet," which up until now has only been featured as a British B-side.

The common factor among the artists chosen for Coming Up, is that all were heavily influenced by McCartney and highly respected his work. Each of the artists that participated graciously agreed to waive their studio costs and royalties to ensure that a larger portion of the proceeds would be donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation (both albums donate a large portion of proceeds to this charity). This project is truly a labor of love for the producers and all of the participating musicians.

In tandem with the release, Oglio Records (along with Boosey and Hawkes) has announced a Hofner Electric Bass Giveaway in which two lucky winners will nab a Vintage Hofner similar to the one McCartney himself uses. The guitars are valued at $2,695 each. Entrants can register by logging on to Oglio.com. The contest ends Thanksgiving Day 2001 and winners will be announced the week after.

This is the second of two CD tributes to one of the greatest songwriters in the history of rock, Paul McCartney. The first disc, Listen to What the Man Said, featured an excellent array of McCartney solo classics performed by artists such as Matthew Sweet and the Barenaked Ladies. That disc focused on bands from either the major label ranks, or bands about to be there due to their success in the indie scene. Coming Up is a nice companion to the first disc as it features all independent artists. These are groups and performers who are on their way up in the music scene but have not gotten quite the same amount of attention. This disc gives them a great chance to show off their talents by paying tribute to the pop virtuoso.
As with the first CD tribute, the majority of the tracks on Coming Up are solid covers that keep the spirit of McCartney's tunes intact. Not every track is a must hear, but there are many solid attempts to equal McCartney. If nothing else, none of the attempts will bore the listener. A few of the versions may even brighten one's day.
While every song is worth a listen, about half of the tracks stand out above the rest. The first track, "Let 'Em In," is a rocking headnodder courtesy of Starbelly. The drums and bass continuously move the number along as the guitars cut in sharply to add to the rhythmic feel. Although not quite the equal of McCartney's version, the song is a solid attempt and provides an excellent start to the disc. The Jellybricks deliver some reggae-tinged guitar at the start of "Take it Away." The song then nicely flows into more straight-forward pop. They show what they have learned from McCartney and combine genres to bring forth a nice blend. Mark Bacino offers up an acoustic version of "Every Night.

Format: Audio CD
As with the McCartney tribute album Love In Song, tentative lists of possible inclusions on two more all-star samplers of McCartney songs have been circulating for almost two years. Some, but not all of these names now re-appear on Listen To What the Man Said and it's companion CD, Coming Up: one set with popular artists (whose names not all ring a bell to me, though) and another by independent performers (some of whom appear courtesy of Not Lame Recording Company, the well-known powerpop label). The total of 31 tracks include only three doubles: My Brave Face, Every Night and Maybe I'm Amazed. There are the hit songs, album tracks (like Ram On, Somedays, Warm And Beautiful) as well as an occasional B-side (Oh Woman Oh Why, Back On My Feet). A preference for McCartney's very first album followed by Band On The Run and McCartney II is apparent. In general, some of the songs stick faithful to the originals, without any personal element taken in, but in most cases it simply proves the artists' professionalism. Both the albums have a caption, reading: 'this album does not contain any performance or endorsement by Paul McCartney or MPL Communications Inc.' In fact, some of the cover versions may pass off as McCartney outtakes.Read more ›

Great songs given an update. All the songs have been done well. Stand-outs include the Andersons version of "Temporary Secretary", Starbelly's "Let'Em In" and Gadget White Band's "Maybe I'm Amazed". If you're a McCartney Fan like myself I think you'll enjoy hearing these classic songs done with a more modern feel.
