4.0 out of 5 stars Back to Basics., 31 Jan 2001
This review is from: Mccartney (Audio CD)
This McCartneys first tentitive step into a world without the company of his former bandmates is a gentle home spun affair that is more like a work in progress demo than a finished album.Not that this is any less an album of say 'Ram' or 'Band on the Run', just something that gives the listener an insight into the embroyonic development of Pauls music of that time.Recorded in his home in St Johns Wood during the heady breakdown of the Beatles affairs Paul was very much going it alone with a trial and error process of recording and overdubbing that gives the album its sparse and sometimes lonley feel. The opening track 'The Lovely Linda' was an experimental sound check that made it to the final cut, songs like 'Teddy Boy' and 'Junk' uncompleted ideas from the 1968 India trip that are classic McCartney whimsy showcasing his skill to create alluring melodys and in the case of 'Teddy Boy' a song that is tender a touchingly retrospective of love lost. While 'Man we was lonley' and 'Oo You' were very much free falling tracks the album is nicely balanced with the inclusion of 'Maybey i'm Amazed', the only studio recorded track that could have been on 'Abbey Road' if fate had not dictated otherwise. Try 'McCartney' out with an open mind and you'll enjoy its company.
