McCartney 321

Postby Mike Boom » 18 Jul 2021, 16:35

Just finished watching this series with Macca and Rick Rubin. Way better than I expected, really concentrates on the music, going thru the master tapes, some real wow moments, could have easily been way longer, hopefully they will do another series. Great stuff.

I was wondering if I was going to have to sign up for Hulu! I guess so.

I've watched the first two of the six.
Nice to hear some different stories, not the usual Macca remembers (although there are still some of these, like the BOTR demos robbery story).
I like the format, play a master and mess about with the track (I loved the contrasting bass and acoustic tracks on While My Guitar) whilst giving some insight, Rubin as a fan but also giving opinion. Very watchable.

Yeah, some of the bass parts were amazing, how he played with a pic to make it sound like a tuba on Maxwells Silver Hammer (I always thought it WAS a tuba!) and the rather interesting comment after telling the old story of how "nobody else wanted to play the bass so I did " , "you can control the whole band with the bass you know". :lol:

As a side note: it’s filmed in black & white, where usually today it would be in colour, yet all the photo stills, which are usually shown in black & white, are shown colourised.

Just watched the last episode.
The ‘And Your Bird Can Sing’ bit was just fab.

Macca’s amazing movable memory was in play when discussing ‘Here There and Everywhere’

One of John’s favourite songs, we’d just finished the album and we were listening to when we were sharing a ski lodge as we were filming Help he said how much he liked it’ :? :lol:
