Product Description

Product Description

16th studio album by the legendary singer-songwriter and former Beatle. Produced by jazz producer Tommy LiPuma, who has worked with such artists as Miles Davis and Barbra Streisand, the album entered the UK Albums Chart at #3 and features the singles 'My Valentine' and 'Only Our Hearts'.

Product Description

Sono trascorsi quasi cinque anni da “Memory almost full”, l'ultimo disco in studio di Paul McCartney. In questo periodo l'ex Beatles non di certo rimasto fermo, si anzi tenuto parecchio impegnato: nel 2008 ha dato alle stampe “Electric arguments” con il suo progetto elettronico The Fireman, nel 2009 il disco dal vivo “Good evening New York City” e nel 2011 “Ocean's kingdom”, un disco di musica classica come colonna sonora per l'omonimo balletto del New York City Ballett. “Kisses on the bottom”, suo quindicesimo capitolo discografico, un album nato per omaggiare gli standard jazz della tradizione americana, canzoni che Paul ascoltava in casa con suo padre quando era bambino. Si passa da “I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter” portata al successo da Fats Weller nel 1935 alla pluri-interpretata “Home (when shadows fall)”, passando per “The glory of love” (resa famosa da Benny Goodman nel 1936) e “Always” composta da Irving Berlin nel 1925 e cos via. Sulla stessa lunghezza d'onda anche le uniche due composizioni originali scritte da Sir Paul per l'occasione: “My Valentine” e “Only our hearts”.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Well, Ringo did one!" 6 Feb 2012
By Quiverbow TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Everyone knew there was a new McCartney album on the way (his first studio release for 4 years), but none realised it would be issued so soon after being announced, and it certainly wasn't envisaged to be a collection of personal favourites, two newly written songs and a re-recording of a 33 year old album track. It's available in two versions; the usual jewel case, and a deluxe pack with two extra songs, expanded sleeve notes, three postcards and access to an exclusive live show. An easy listening offering of songs he heard, and was influenced by, during his formative years (and he has chosen many that might not be familiar), the booklet explains how he and John tried to copy these songs. I'm surprised McCartney hasn't done anything like this until now; and another first is that he just sings on this. Then again, maybe he's been planning such a project and only just got round to doing something about it. Joined by Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, and Diane Krall and her band, who play with the lightest of touches on their instruments, whats the deluxe version like?

I'M GONNA SIT RIGHT DOWN AND WRITE MYSELF A LETTER. A piano and double bass led jazz tune, this is whispered in fine style in a way you might imagine someone suddenly joining in with the house band. A potential single?
HOME (WHERE THE SHADOWS FALL). Maybe the most obscure song included, this is nicely sung in a late-night fireside way.
IT'S ONLY A PAPER MOON. An occasional voice straining to reach the right notes doesn't seem to spoil the shortest track that has an effective violin and whistling middle eight. It certainly grows on you.
MORE I CANNOT WISH YOU Annoying. Not in a bad way but you just wish it would start instead of sounding like a three minute introduction to something more substantial.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sentimental Journey 26 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
Perhaps the only surprise here is that Paul didn't put out this album earlier. After all, it's been nearly 40 years since he sang `Til There Was You' in 1963, aged 21. First hearing the album's title I was as dismayed as when I heard the line `I acted like a dustbin lid' back in 1983. But, in both cases, an understanding of where these phrases came from were enough to cure my premature wrath! And so to the album, when I first played it, my younger son aged 10 said he would fall asleep if we played it the whole way through. At the time, I agreed with him.
But after multiple listenings, the quality of the slower songs in particular shine through. The opening track was great on first listening, the second one `Home' has grown on me considerably. Great chord changes, as Paul says. Same can be said of `Always'. What initially was pretty depressing listening has now become a joy. The upbeat tracks like the Milkman one and Ac-Cen-Tchu-Ate The Positive were winners from the start. A bit like George's wonderful cover of `The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea'. Probably would have voted for more in this vein, had I been producer. I particularly like the amusing rhymes like `Jonah in the whale and Noah in the ark...what did they do just when it all seemed so dark'. Charming. Most of these songs are standards for a good reason. `Bye Bye Blackbird' taken at such a slow pace initially came as quite a shock, particularly compared to Ringo's superb version we have known and loved from 1970, but I think it is great now! Paul doesn't play any instruments here, but I think that allows him to put maximum emotion into the vocal. And the band is superb. For the record I don't think `Baby's Request' improved on the 1979 version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Standard Macca...Not Quite! 15 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
Like most reviews on Amazon I can sympathise with the difficulty in reviewing this particular release, most people here will be long time McCartney fans and the proposition of him doing standards is probably a little frightening when everyone is still yearning for his next true album. That said there is nothing wrong with his performance on these tracks he does them extremely well (though i'm not an expert in the field). Chances are its not going to strike the right notes with the usual Beatles/Wings/Fireman/Solo crowds but he has opened himself up too a new and probably very large audience who will be delighted with it and if it maybe puts those people on the road to his other material then its smiles all round.

Onto the music itself which as I said before I'm expert but to be blunt the tracks are all very similar and almost blend into one piece of music rather than individual tracks. Though at 14 tracks its a healthy length and as 12 of them are standards so covers basically there are two new McCartney compositions, the lead single My Valentine and Only Our Hearts and they both stand out in the album because McCartney reverts to his usual tone where as with the standards he seems to sing to suit the style. Ultimately though it is all one tone and sound, predominantly piano. Stand out tracks for me are My Valentine and "Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive" which even though a standard has a pleasant beat and is a favourite.

In truth I quite like it as a whole its far from my usual cup of tea and had it not been McCartney I would never of considered it but I'm grateful he's managed to get me to listen to something new.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paul
He makes the old songs sound new and exciting. His voice, although not fantastic, sounds smooth and these songs suit it. A good overall album.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sadly dissapointed
Boring, and monotonous. Pauls voice has not stood the test of time, and this is an album for him and his family to listen to in his dotage, not to charge money for. Read more

A wonderful mix from Sir Paul, a return to his musical roots in many ways. This album has music that could have been created in the back streets of Liverpool in the 60-70's. Read more
