you are, of course, quite right. LH...when i first thought of a great big macca-career spanning ode to his music, i thought very frequently that the concert should start with the ballad version of 'no more lonely nights', and end with the playout, albeit it a bit more 'rock'ier, version
and amidst all that, i definately thought the RRS medley, at least, should figure prominantly...
in revisiting that thought some time ago, i felt strongly both medleys should be present...and in my rush the other day to finally jot down a few idea...i did, in fact, forget that album and all its great songs
of course...there are too, too many great songs never
played out at any
concert by paul, and one could go on forever if we tried to somehow shoe-horn them all in in some way
however, i should point out, that at no time did i ever think about trying to fit in at least one song from each album..a quick re-read shows some albums are picked from a bit more healthily...and there are many, many songs i'd prefer to see than even some, but not all, of the beatle songs i mentioned : i added a beatle song or two more than i might usually do when thinking about this, just to keep the beatlenuts quiet
if the world were a more perfect place...what i'd love to see is him not repeat a single song for some period of time, to have smaller sets, in more intimate venues, and to have each set/small tour be built around fully playing out two full albums with all the b-sides and assorted songs pertaining to that specific era
you wake up...sip hot tea...mindless music, radio free. see blue skies and think of sea...how are you doin'
