I’m SO looking forward to Paul’s next two archive sets, ‘Tug of war’ and ‘Pipes of peace’. I used to slag Pipes off, but it’s become a bit of a guilty pleasure. Once i mentally erase the songs ‘Hey Hey’ and ‘Tug of peace’ (quite possibly the worst thing Paul has ever committed to tape), i quite enjoy the album, and as per usual, find it saturated with perfect Macca melodies.
It’s funny with some of the solo albums, all it takes is for me to not really like one or two songs, and it can colour the whole album for me. Flaming pie is another example, i never really liked the album as a whole, even tho some of my favorite Paul songs ever feature on it, ie, Calico skies, Beautiful night etc. Alas, for me, it also has ‘If you wanna’, ‘Used to be bad’ and ‘Really love you’. Those three songs were enough for me to ‘turn’ and dismiss the album as a whole.
It must be my advancing years, and my growing ability to not be quite so reactionary, to look at things a little more objectively.
Music is the very personification of objectivity, for every person like me who doesn’t really rate ‘Used to be bad’, there will be someone who thinks it’s one of Paul’s best.
