Paul's home recordings, part two,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: McCartney II (Audio CD)
Ten years after his solo debut, 'McCartney', Paul decided to put Wings on the back burner and record another album at home. Whereas at least some of the sessions for 'McCartney' took place at the Abbey Road studios, this album was recorded entirely at Paul's farm in Scotland. The opening track, 'Coming Up', is in my opinion one of Paul's catchiest tunes, and some of the ballads, like 'Waterfalls' and 'One of these days', are very melodic. I think that some of the other tracks are less successful. I find 'Temporary Secretary', although released as a single in 1980, repetitive and irritating. The CD released in 1993 adds three bonus tracks. 'Check my machine' and 'Secret Friend' were recorded at the same time as the album tracks in July 1979 and included as B-sides to singles in 1980. Although 'Goodnight Tonight' is an excellent song, its inclusion here is puzzling since it was released as a single by Wings in the spring of 1979.
