I like Band on the run and I like you know my name. I d like Segeant pepper more than I like Return to Pepperland. I like while my guitar gentle weeps more than I like Biker lika an Icon. And on and on ......everyone like different things because we are different persons and hear what we hear. TLets keep on with that. Actualli I thinke that only one beatles solowork - from beginning to end has the same quality as any Batles album from Rubber Soul and on...and that album is Ram- there are plenty of songs though from all of the moptops yes even some of Ringos - It don t come easy that have a total Beatles quality

Paul's written a lot of songs since the Beatles' break-up that might have been worthy of the boys to record, however without John, Gearge and Ringo we tend to diminish the impact of that material. Plus the times have changed. Lady Ga Ga gets all the attention because that's what the kids are into. the media isn't knocking down Paul's door like they used to, subsequently he's not heard to the same degree he used to be. He's still the same guy; still writing great songs. What could John have added to House of Wax or Lighthouse or pick a song...? We try to compare whole Mccartney albums to the five or six contributions he'd make to a Beatles album. Pick the five or six songs from each Mccartney album and imagine what an album would sound like if John added five or six of his own with contributions from George and Ringo of course, too.

Well- the interesting exercise is to take all of Paul's songs from each year (65-66, 67, 68,69, etc) and turn them into solo albums -

what's interesting is how incredibly consistent they are with Ram/BOTR V&M and even London Town in terms of type of content.
