"Only Mama Knows" is, of course, a live track that genuinely rocks hard--and Paul sings this out with all his might! Paul's excellent diction enhances his performance and those guitars help the number even further. This is McCartney still at his best; and the melody is quite catchy. McCartney aces this effortlessly--but of course we know it really wasn't that easy. Paul's talents always carry him through to success!
"C Moon" is definitely a number that the crowd loves; and I remember this from a while back--but Paul delivers this rendition with so much enthusiasm it sounds all new and fresh. "C Moon" gets more of a rock and roll arrangement here but it all works very well. Indeed, "C Moon" is easily a major highlight of this album. There's also "That Was Me;" I believe this comes from Paul's more recent CD entitled Memory Almost Full; Paul does this flawlessly and again the electric guitars make this such a great number! Paul sings this quite well and I think "That Was Me" is amazing to say the least!
The four track CD ends with an older Beatles tune entitled `I Saw Her Standing There." This was always one of my very favorite Beatles' songs and McCartney doesn't disappoint when he performs this one. The guitars are emphasized more than they were for the original version of this song but Paul and the others perform this rock ballad so well it still makes me smile--it's a cute little love story!Read more ›
One aspect of his musical greatness has been his never-ending willingness to share it with the general public, in the form of live performance. While the monetary rewards for staging world tour after world tour are sizeable, it's been a long time since Paul McCartney has had to do anything for money.
As the last of the 'Fab Four' to see that touring with that band made no sense whatsoever (they couldn't be heard and the limitations of the technology on stage made it impossible to transfer the band's ground-breaking sonic experiments from the studio to the stadium), Mr. McCartney, nevertheless, has always had a yearning to "keep music live"...but, in a music store? At the tender age of 65?
Fortunately for us, yes, and yes! This four-song snippet (from the full 12-song concert), held at the Amoeba Record Store in Hollywood, California demonstrates, once again, that with Paul and his band (comprised of Paul Wickens, Rusty Anderson, Brian Ray and Abe Laboriel, Jr.), it is, in fact, "getting better all the time."
(NOTE: If at all possible, try to get your hands on the full, 12-song, CD. It was recently given away in Sunday editions of The Mail, in the U.K.)
