Where has this album been all my life?
on 13 January 2004
There was a time when I blithely assumed that John & Yoko was where it was really at. In terms of the Beatles, Paul was just the old sweet-toothed loverboy with a penchant for writing saccharine songs while John provided the real meat. Everything I once thought I knew was consigned to the bin when I heard this album. Because, while John & Yoko were ploughing their lonely furrow of po-faced holier-than-thou realpolitik, Paul and Linda were down on the farm making one of the most beautiful albums of the 70's. I cannot believe that I never heard this album before. It is exquisite. It rocks, it's boisterous, it's funny, it's tender, it's deeply funky: it has everything. Two very wealthy young people making music that is brimming with simple, unassuming, confident love and putting a big cheesy smile on my face. If you only buy one Macca album this has got to be the one. You can even give Band On The Run a miss if you like. I listen to this album and I think - I'll have what they're having. It's beautiful. It's amazing. Buy it and get drunk on it. Maybe the 70's weren't so naff after all...
