    @johnny silver…
    That’s a good Elvis impersonation…
    (one of my favorite songs)

  3. how are you kwai? On The Way and NAA are 2 of my faves too.
    iirc rockabilly was making a comeback then and i thought Paul was trying to hop on the wagon. liked this album alot, underrated imo. lots of good stuff and good melodies which is counterbalanced by some garbage songs too. just after I became a Beatlemaniac Speed of Sound came out and man, what a letdown that record was. LT gave me hope Paul could turn it around.

    High, Johnny!
    Nobody likes it, but I consider Speed Of Sound to be one of Paul’s better cannabis albums… London Town is another. If Famous Groupies and Morse Moose had been replaced by Girl’s School/Mull(up) Of Kintyre…then, everyone would know how silver rain can play a simple tune on a purple afternoon.
    What can the sister do?

    I listened to LT much more than Hollywood Bowl…

  5. Good call. I forgot about Girl’s School.

    I much preferred the HB bootleg than the official release. :-)

  6. btw speaking of Speed of Sound and guilty pleasures: the RNR Music dbl album in ’77 was one of mine. Only because i was 14 and was ramping up my familiarity with them.

    Weren’t they ALL ‘cannabis albums’ by this point?

    BTW, “Warm and Beautiful” from SOS is in my opinion, Paul’s tribute to his recently deceased dad; a rare heartfelt track.

    Anyway, the top picture of Paul here looks a LOT like his romp through France in the ‘Fool on the Hill’ clip from MMT.

    I hung out with Denny Lane once. Even had my pictures taken with him. And he took my picture too. :)

    Kwai, i LOVE Speed of sound, it’s a double thumbs aloft stoner album (but lets face it, what album of Paul’s isn’t made for the discerning stoner).

    Johnny, i have warm and fuzzy memories of the Rock and roll album too. I was eleven and in the first blush of my fandom.

  11. Hi Tammy, yeah there is nothing like the sense of innocence at that age. For me the RNR album was my intro to the Beatles, i think it was the 1st album I ever bought. The innocence thing is why I dug Rotogravure so much: a 14 y.o. old kid who was an absolute sponge. For me I’ll Still Love You is one of the great underrated solo songs by any of them.

  12. Rotogravure is a HUGE guilty pleasure of mine, easily my favorite Ringo album :-)

    Guilty pleasures: Sentimental Journey, Beaucoups of Blues, Wonderwall Music, Onobox. There, I said it.

  14. Adding to the no shame list, ‘Japanese tears’, ‘A story’.
