I like 'Press To Play' too.  ha2ha

Well there may be something we agree on...

Back To The Egg on the other hand...

 ;D

Helen Wheels I like the drums on here, not so fond of the muddy sound nor the voices. I do like that it's about a van and touring in it. Fit's the 'Band On The Run' bit rather well... Sailor Sam and the way she feels...

Its actually about his and Lindas Land Rover that they used to drive around the countryside in. Sorry, just saying.

I like 'Band On The Run'. I think it is a very good Paul album. One of his best? That I doubt. I think 'Ram' is better. Then again, I like it all. So I may not be able to offer a objective opinion.

That was never a favorite of mine, but I havent listened to it for awhile. Maybe i'm missing something. Cant wait for the review.

This is a good question that I would have to do some homework for. Off the top of my head, I believe Denny played on 'Jet' and that might be it. I think 'Jet' was cut earlier before the trip to Lagos and before Denny bailed on the band. Again, I might be wrong and I would have to look it up. I bet Bobber knows this. If Cor doesnt respond before I head to work tonight, i'll find out when I get there.

Picasso's Last Words (Drink To Me)
Many people think this is the masterpiece of the album (so I've learned in the past few weeks), but I don't really agree.


Is that really true? Wow, I've always considered the song to be the weakest one here.

Regarding the album, it's very good and I really can't find any bad things about it, but for some reason I've always considered "Venus and Mars" to be superior to it. Maybe it's the fact that it impressed me more on the very first listen.

Edit : I also forgot to mention the fact that the "Band On The Run" reprise coming at the end of "Nineteen Hundread and Eighty Five" after that noisy orchestral ending is probably my favourite bit of the whole album. I like it this way, with no other bonus tracks added.

Somehow I find it unbelievable that on a Beatles forum, an album by The Byrds is discussed more than Paul McCartney's finest album.

Actually, twice more people replied to this thread than to the Byrds microscope. That's gotta count for something. By the way, did you switched to John or are you doing the microscopes simultaneously for each solo beatle?

I don't find that so unbelievable because many people in this forum have a wide taste of music and don't stick just to the Beatles and the solo careers of ex-members. Several Byrds' albums are historically much more important than anything Paul did after the Beatles, opening the door for new genres. Actually from a Beatles fan perspective, I think it's richer the discussion that can be done about bands that were contemporaneous to the Fab Four than about the solo careers that hardly broke any new ground. Anyway, I don't mean to put these Microscopes down at all, I think they're very interesting, and I'm having participation on them as well.

I've been saying this since the beginning. There's about 10 to 20 posters that get involved in the solo microscope threads (i'm being generous) and then the rest have just seemed to foregone their solo stuff. Its more weird to me then unbelievable. Maybe its an age thing. Who knows.
