The Aroundtable is proud to present the fourth part in our selection of Paul McCartney’s best post-Beatles work.
Tug of War (1982)
In the wake of the tragic events of death of John Lennon and the dissolution of McCartney’s post-Beatles group, Wings, Tug of War should have been an absolute mess.
Thankfully McCartney recruits George Martin to sit behind the boards and salvages the project.
If anyone doubts how good this record is needs to hear the ballade Here Today, where McCartney pours out his heart to deceased friend/former bandmate John Lennon.
Back to the Egg(1979)
McCartney attempts to make a full-fledged rock album, and for the most part succeeds, there is a burst of unbridled energy to his sound. However, the album stumbles when McCartney tries to incorporate some of his recognizable indulgences s into the mix. Still, Back to the Egg is better than it's given credit for.
