4.0 out of 5 stars Paul is NOT dead..., November 12, 2007
This review is from: Memory Almost Full - CD/DVD Deluxe Edition (Audio CD)
If you grew up with the Beatles, and followed their solo careers, and looked forward to their new albums, you knew too many months and years in which Paul did NOT release anything - especially in the '80s and '90s. I remember being concerned that maybe we'd heard the last of Paul, or that his creative juices had all dried up. "Driving Rain" and "Chaos and Creation" were hints that this was not so.

"Memory Almost Full" is a nice, refreshing confirmation that Paul still has much to offer. I'm also one who bought the "deluxe" CD when it came out. I couldn't help but notice that the 3 bonus tracks were among my favorites and fully deserved to be on the main album. I also enjoyed the track-by-track commentary - that doesn't seem to be on this offering.

The video DVD and live performances are nice additions. I agree that they should have all been on the original deluxe package. Maybe that release needs to be ignored and people need to be pointed to this offering instead?

I hope to be retired by the time I'm Paul's age. I'm glad to see that he's not. He's still producing some great tunes, and he's open to trying new tricks of the trade and venues for getting his music out to the masses. (How many 60+ year-olds have a YouTube site?)

He's still singing - and I'm still listening... Hopefully, this collaboration of ours will continue for many more years to come!

Thanks, Paul!
