This is a real hard album for me to even write about. But I got my hands on a remastered copy this week... and... BAM. There it was again: those melodies... those creeping, effortlessly-written, sensual melodies, jamming every song until they are overflowing with sound... I mean, does it really get any better with Paul?

A quick glance of the reviews here makes me sick. "Not as good as John's 'Imagine'.." "they spent too much time on the farm"... "too whimsical"... bah! What a legacy he had to uphold! And even from supposed Professional Beatleologists! But here he does it with grace and style and a fantastic sense of what needs to go on in a perfect pop song. Truly, there aren't any better pop songs on one single Beatle-related album than "Ram".

The influence of this record is still being felt. You could uphold the entire post-90's indie-pop scene (from Elephant 6 and their cadre all the way up to the new crop of SubPop poppy singers a la Fruit Bats and Long Winters) and trace it to "Ram". That a whole new, younger generation of fans has discovered the fountain of melody within pleases the heck out of me.

"Long Haired Lady", "Back Seat of My Car", and "Uncle Albert" are pure Paul pop masterpieces each. The hidden ditties, "Ram On", "Smile Away", "Eat At Home", are all essential in the context of the whole thing. "Dear Boy" and "Heart of the Country" are so fantastic in their simplicity and confidence you could almost see him writing them in literally minutes. The whole thing is just excellent... tasty pop good-naturedness that it's almost unbelievable that he would put that photo on the back cover. He didn't need to. This album alone would have provoked a good enough response from John so as to make any photo irrelevant.

Released in May of 1971, this is Paul McCartney's second 'solo' LP, preceding his formation of the band 'Wings' for the 'Wild Life' album. It's a one-hundred percent improvement on his mediocre self-titled 'debut' album. Although 'Ram' did yield a number one hit for McCartney, the lush 'Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey', that song is far from the best song in the 'Ram' collection. That simple fact is instructive about the high quality of the album, which is solid from start to finish. And while wife Linda receives co-billing with McCartney on the album cover and in the song credits, and despite some endearing background vocals from her, Linda's contributions are surely overstated here, most likely as another swipe at Paul's ex-collaborator John Lennon.

'Ram' is, if nothing else, a fun collection of witty pop and rock songs. It most likely was intended as nothing more than that. While its style would certainly encourage John to continue ravaging Paul's productions for their pop sensibilities and 'meaninglessness' relative to his own crusades for peace and justice in the world, Paul's work probably produced a lot more peace and joy than John ever Imagined (pun intended). The songs on 'Ram' are not simply bouncy dance music, but bouyant numbers that bring pleasant and comforting images to heart and mind. Songs such as '3 Legs', 'Smile Away', 'Monkberry Moon Delight' and 'Eat At Home' are just a joy to experience, while the lighter fare, such as 'Heart of the Country', 'Long Haired Lady', and 'The Back Seat of My Car' are poignant and touching. There is an incredible mix of sounds, an aural cornucopia, on the production that keeps the listener attentive and interested.

I've always liked this album. I bought it in 1971 when it came out and thought that it was a sophisticated well written album with a few clunkers. Time hasn't changed that assessment. Yes, there is whimsy and, yes, there is garbage but, all in all, it sounds terrific. The songs appear to be about nothing but....take a second look at some of the pointed lyrics written about his former band mates.

THE REMASTER (2012): Ram comes in three different versions--1) a single disc edition with the album remastered by the Abbey Road team that worked on The Beatles, John Lennon remasters. 2) A two disc remaster with the single "Another Day"/"Oh Woman Oh Why" as well as b-sides, outtakes that were recorded around the same time 3) A deluxe set with the original stereo album remastered, the second disc, a third disc with the mono album and a DVD (that runs under a half hour) on the making of the album.

Which version you pick will depend, of course, on affordability, how much of a fan you are and how essential you consider this album to be. The sound on the remaster is pretty darn good--it has a bit more midrange, better detail and there's no noise reduction on the release.

McCartney also makes observations about politics, goes on a little road trip with sex and romance. He also examines the serenity of down home living. Is it a deep album? No, but that wasn't its intention. Here is a bit of trivia for those interested. "Ram on" appears to be a throwaway title when, in fact, it refers to the pseudonym Paul used during the Beatles' early days--Paul Ramon. So, the song is a very personal fragment written about his salvation--Linda. It is every bit as infectious as "Oh Yoko" and any of John's other love songs.
