Format: Paperback
This is the first volume in a series of four great books about Paul McCartney. And the best thing about it? It's all about the MUSIC. Where did he get the inspiration for a certain song? How did he arrange and record it? Who's playing what and where and when was it recorded? It's all in here. But it's also a very detailed discography for the discerning trainspotter, with loads and loads of sleeve and label scans, chart placings, catalogue numbers and credits. Every song ever offcially put out by McCartney is analysed, even classics such as "Mumbo Link" (although much briefer than, say "Maybe I'm Amazed").

It's like a set of expanded and highly in-depth liner notes and make for excellent reading as you're listening to the music.

BTW, in case they are hard to find here, all of the four volumes are also available directly from the author if you look around. And, no, I'm not affiliated with the author in any way. I just think these excellent books deserve a much wider audience.

Blaney's books about the Beatles are getting thinner and thinner ...

This one is a bit of a let down for me, in that it contains barely more than a watered down version of Bruce Spizer's 'The Beatles Solo On Apple' book (http://www.amazon.com/Beatles-Solo-Apple-Records/dp/0966264959) (admittedly continuing beyond that book's cut-off date, i.e. the end of Apple Records) mixed with a small amount of commonly known background, together with a pinch of Blaney's personal interpretations.

Just as with his 'John Lennon: Listen To This Book' (http://www.amazon.com/John-Lennon-Listen-This-Book/dp/095445281X/ref=sr_1_8?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1287405595&sr=1-8), you get the feeling that Blaney is once more re-writing the same information found to the best effect in his 'Lennon and McCartney: Together Alone: A Critical Discography of the Solo Work' (http://www.amazon.com/Lennon-McCartney-Together-Critical-Discography/dp/1906002029/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1287405595&sr=1-1)

I haven't put these books side by side, but reading 'The Songs He Was Singing' I can't seem to shake off a copy/paste-from-previous-publications feeling.
