5.0 out of 5 stars For no one but the McCartneyphile, 6 Feb. 2008
This review is from: The Unknown Paul McCartney: McCartney and the Avant-garde (Paperback)
An authoritative account of the little known of side of Paul McCartney and a fascinating study of his extra curricular activities which are known of to only the most avid Beatles collector.Its also where a knowledge of other musics comes in handy as names like John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen are not really household ones.
Lennon has usually been seen as the avant gardist because of Revolution No 9 and the Zapple records but it would seem McCartney had his own ideas long before.
Not even that many Beatles fans are going to "get it"-and some of this music is not easy to find as the Fireman and the Liverpool Sound Collage are deleted with Twin Freaks only available on CD from Russia!
More available to the masses is Qui est la Soleil-a track on Flowers in the Dirt-to show what the Fireman things sounded like
But really you only have to think of Beatles ideas which were translated by George Martin-himself no stranger to the weird end of music when he cut a single under the name of Ray Cathode the same year as Love me do.
In the field of the avant garde and ambience its McCartney who was able to make it work in ways Lennon could never have done.
