Paul McCartney's new album??

I heard a small bit of NPR's interview with Paul McCartney today. He's got a new album out called "Kisses on the bottom" I think. From what I heard I liked it more than I usually like new albums these days.

Anyone have it yet?

i have it. i like those old tunes and Paul does a nice job singing them. nothing spectacular, but it's a good entry in the "Great American Songbook" bandwagon that a lot of artists are jumping on.



as a sidelight, i made myself a mix cd of the songs by their "original" artists (Fats Waller, Ella Fitzgerald, etc) and i like it much better.

as albums of oldies go, i much prefer Paul's Run Devil Run and Choba b CCCP (the Russian album)

Thanks for the review. I'll likely pick it up the next time I'm in town.

One reviewer said 'this is the album John always warned us Paul would make'.

I'm going with that.

A musician who once had created one of the very tallest mountains of credibility - and rightly so. I wish he'd stopped chipping away at it so diligently ever since.
There is very little left to look at now.

No, I have not heard the new album, so unfair comment? well .. the concept alone here is warning enough.

If you like jazz and the old big band standards you will like the CD. Diana Krall and her band serve as his backup band. Clapton also plays on a couple of the songs. It's OK, not one of my favorite CDs but worth listening to a few times.
