In light of Paul McCartney being hugely embarrassing recently I’ve been relistening to Beatles/post-beatles stuff.
For my money it goes
for solo stuff.
All Things Must Pass is as good as any late period Beatles album and I love it to bits. Always thinking about ‘got my mind set on you’ as well.
I think McCartney is a great wee album for a fun listen and RAM is great too. I have been shouted at numerous times for improving parties by putting on the all time banger ‘Temporary Secretary’
Only listened to Ringo singles might listen to a greatest hits or something soon.
Lennon was probably my favourite songwriter in the Beatles but his solo stuff is often fucking terrible. Plastic Ono Band is a great album, probably the best Beatles solo endeavour, but everything else is so poor. Imagine has one good song (crippled inside) and his version of Jealous Guy is boring and shit compared to Donny Hathaway who actually imbues it with some meaning. What happened John???
Love this soundtrack. Good one for tracks to insert into mixes. Would quite like to see the daft sounding film at some point.
I was listening to Shankar Family and Friends lately which George produced, has his fingerprints on this joyful indo pop thing
Also contains an excellent side-long suite for an imagined opera, lots of Ravi’s lovely noodly sitar but then this part gets into jazz-rock after about 3 minutes. Not really like anything else I’ve heard
