Just picked this one up recently (finally got around to it, that is) quite enjoyed it. It's a rather full picture of Paul of the 90s. It gave me a new appreciation for some of the songs I hadn't paid close attention to as much.
Linda appeared so naturally glamourous and elegant, even moreso than when she was younger, I think. Geoff Baker even got some decent footage--looks rather thin, maybe he's put on some weight, I took him for being a little heavier. It seemed surprising that Jeff Lynne didn't get more space considering he was the album's producer.
Paul sure did cut-up a bit--it was also funny where he plays the "queer-eye" as George Martin models the unfolded Beautiful Night
music score and wears it like a sash, lol.
It was cool to see a segment regarding his paintings, and of course by now Tropical Island Hum
is no longer a mystery, it has been out for a while.
Did the video succeed in really portraying Paul McCartney, the man? The press, or some supposed insider seems to consistently state, "Well, he always has his guard up y'know, he's hard to really get to know even if he is friendly and a perfect gentleman, etc., blah blah..." mmm, I've never heard Ringo say any of that stuff. I suppose what you see is what you get.
On the one hand it seems Paul does enjoy promoting himself, but then-- that's what we want, right?--I did buy it, and I do like it!
Looks like I'll be having the Flaming Pie
CD in rotation again!
