and since his 80's albums are probably the weakest of his career he sees no point on exploring them too much.
Uummm! Can't agree with you there I'm afraid. Both Tug Of War and Flowers are amongst his finest solo albums and even McCartney 2 and Press have their merits. Only Pipes Of Peace is the weak link.
I think the main problem is that critics have generally poo-poo'd this period as Macca's sugary period and I'm sure Paul realises this, so he tends to steer clear of these albums. For me this is a shame as Take It Away, Stranglehold and even Tug Of War would sound great live. In fact Tug Of War could even replace the tedious Live & Let Die with the fireworks and explosions. Just a thought.
