Liner notes:
This collection gathers together a couple of dozen Macca titles wich are either uncirculated, currently unavailable, or are simply of better quality than those you might have in your library.

The programme starts off with the only known complete performance of "Suicide", reputadly a demo for Tony Bennett ( sic ).

After an interlude of some pleasant reggae jams from his 1980 tour reheasals. Paul kicks into rock and roll mode. "Blackpool" was announced as a b-side in the early 80's. Too bad it never showed. Its certainly better than say, "Soggy Noodle. Following this is a series of cover performances of Eddie, Buddy, Chuck, Elvis and Carl songs. Most of these are taken from an acetate of the "One Hand Clapping" sessions ( sic ) ( which, unfortunately, mistracksduring "We're Gonna Move"). Even considering the impromptu nature of many of these covers, these performances make Lennon's attempts on his "Rock and Roll" LP sound pathetic by comparison.

"Blue Moon of Kentucky" leads us back to Bill Monroe ( via Elvis ), and country music. In honour of this, we'vefollowed the rock and roll segment with a trio of outtakes or demos of Paul's best country compositions ( and don't claim "Nightgale" - written for the Everlys is anything but country. We know better ).

In the final act, we turn our attention to Paul's 1986 "Press to Play" sessions. As usual, he ruined the album with overproduction, and the raw tracks are far superior. Here are three of the best, plus "Hanglide", an excellent instrumental that hasn't deservedoblivion that its been cast in.

Review by: Eric, sink0014@tc.umn.eduOn 09 Mar 2000
This is a great collection of Paul rarities. I rated this album as a 9 because I liked this boot a lot because it was the first boot I ever owned and the huge collection of Paul rarities blew me away!! However, there are many other releases with MUCH LONGER versions of a good portion of the tracks (BLACKPOOL, ROCK SHOW) - so at the standpoint of a collector I would rate this as a 7.
Review by: Greg, thaonguyen@sprintmail.comOn 20 Apr 2000
This is the only Macca bootleg I own, so take my comments with a grain of salt.

I really like this album and listen to it quite often just for the pleasure of hearing McCartney play music. I love Suicide, Yvonne, and Wings of a Nightingale, and I heard them first (and last!) on this disk. It's fun to hear him run through all of the guitar pieces by himself.

I can't compare this bootleg to any other McCartney bootlegs, but if you don't have it, I would recommend getting it if just for the musical treat that it is.
Review by: Gary, gbeegle@frontiernet.netOn 26 Aug 2000
This is an excellent Paul bootleg.The old rock n' roll stuff with just Paul & his guitar is amazing,really nice."Wings of a nightingale" is a beautiful song.Paul should do an official version of this song he gave to the Everlys."Country dreamer","Sally G" & "Yvonne" are also very good."Hangglide" is a very interesting instrumental.Good times coming/feel the sun is also very nice.I like the organ on "feel the sun",it just gives the song a nice sound.This is an excellent collection of Paul songs and the album has a nice flow to it.I am rating this one a 9 because no matter how often I listen to it,I still always enjoy it.

Well well well, my fellow Mac fans. Finally, a consistently good Mac boot; love it too. "Blackpool, 38, 23, 42 blackpool, that's the place for me." Great song. Imagine an MTV unplugged format for Paul when he recorded these songs, and that's what you get here on this boot. "Twenty Flight Rock", "Peggy Sue", "I'm Gonna Love You Too", "Sweet Little Sixteen", "Loving You", and "We're Gonna Move" would put to shame any Unplugged performance by any artist, including Paul's own Unplugged 1989 outing where he showed up with a full band. No one does Buddy Holly better than Paul, other than Buddy Holly himself. Paul cops a pretty good Elvis as well. Even Lennon's attempts at reviving these vintage songs would pale in comparison; there are just some things that Paul could do better than John, and imitating Holly and Presley is one of them. "Cut Across Shorty", and "Blue Moon Of Kentucky" are throw aways, Paul's performance of "Blue Moon Of Kentucky" on the 89 "Unplugged" boot is much more compelling and poetic. Paul is always best when in ballad mode. "Sally G", and "Country Dreamer" are from Paul's Nashville sessions, and the recording of "Venus And Mars". The south had a good effect on Paul, and these two recordings demonstrate that Mac could knock out country tunes with the best of them, save maybe Hank Williams himself. "Suicide" is an out of sorts McCartney tune, but very interesting in the historical context, i.e. Paul gave this song to Sinatra, but Frank turned it down for reasons unknown. One of the most interesting tracks on this disc is a very rough, and way too short out take of "Heart Of The Country" from the "Ram" album. Paul sounds like whiskey and cigarettes on this number, but the recording is vintage, begging the question, where can you find complete demos and out takes from "Ram"? The rest of this disc is so so, and the song, "Wings Of A Nightingale" is a marginal Mac composition. If you love Paul, and we all do, find this disc, and buy it.

I think "Wings of a Nightingale" is a highly under-rated Paul song. Unfortunately on this boot-"Wings Of ..." is recorded at the wrong speed (a bit too fast).

I disagree with a few of the above reviews that say this boot proves that Paul could out rock John on the oldies.
Be-Bop-A-Lula by John-that's all I've got to say.
