Episode 11 – McCartney II

After Wings’ dissolution, Macca hid at home and recorded another truly solo album in the vein of 1970’s McCartney. Paul is responsible for nearly everything on this record. The real difference this time around? Synthesizers. Despite its experimental nature, the album birthed the number-one hit single “Coming Up” – a favorite of John Lennon’s. Believe it or not, the perennial “Wonderful Christmastime” originates from these sessions. Is this album true genius or absolute garbage? Well I said nobody knows!
