This remaster of 1997’s Flaming Pie is a most pleasant surprise and includes, in addition to the original album, an array of demos, home recordings and acoustic versions. The album, which was as popular with the critics as it was with the public at the time of its release, totals forty-five tracks including plenty of surprises and variations. It’s the tenth album in Sir Paul’s solo discography, coming four years after its predecessor. During his four-year solo hiatus, Paul was preoccupied with The Beatles Anthology project from which he emerged with a renewed energy. In fact, the experience inspired him to record little pop tunes again as had been done during The Beatles era. Upon listening, one can truly feel an atmosphere of freshness and self-enjoyment in which things aren’t taken too seriously. It is not an entire success, but it is convincing overall and several critics hail this album as his most successful since Tug Of War in 1982… On the bluesy Really Love You Paul is joined by his old friend, Ringo Starr, who cowrote the track - in fact, its the first song to ever be cowritten by Paul and Ringo. We also find Starr on Beautiful Night… A special mention should go the outstanding closing track, Great Day, complemented by choirs and little syncopated percussion instruments which accentuate Paul’s beautiful vocal performance rooted in soul. For context, the title Flaming Pie references an anecdote from his friend John Lennon who explained in 1961 to Mersey Beat magazine the origin of The Beatles' name: “It came as a vision… a man appeared on a flaming pie and said to us 'from this day forward you are The Beatles with an A'”. As for the rest of the album, the demos and preliminary, often acoustic, versions of tracks are real gems which demonstrate the true talent of Paul McCartney, whose pleasant and down to earth personality makes us almost forget that he isn’t just any ordinary guy… A legend through and through. © YC/Qobuz

Album review

This remaster of 1997’s Flaming Pie is a most pleasant surprise and includes, in addition to the original album, an array of demos, home recordings and acoustic versions. The album, which was as popular with the critics as it was with the public at the time of its release, totals forty-five tracks including plenty of surprises and variations. It’s the tenth album in Sir Paul’s solo discography, coming four years after its predecessor. During his four-year solo hiatus, Paul was preoccupied with The Beatles Anthology project from which he emerged with a renewed energy. In fact, the experience inspired him to record little pop tunes again as had been done during The Beatles era. Upon listening, one can truly feel an atmosphere of freshness and self-enjoyment in which things aren’t taken too seriously. It is not an entire success, but it is convincing overall and several critics hail this album as his most successful since Tug Of War in 1982… On the bluesy Really Love You Paul is joined by his old friend, Ringo Starr, who cowrote the track - in fact, its the first song to ever be cowritten by Paul and Ringo. We also find Starr on Beautiful Night… A special mention should go the outstanding closing track, Great Day, complemented by choirs and little syncopated percussion instruments which accentuate Paul’s beautiful vocal performance rooted in soul. For context, the title Flaming Pie references an anecdote from his friend John Lennon who explained in 1961 to Mersey Beat magazine the origin of The Beatles' name: “It came as a vision… a man appeared on a flaming pie and said to us 'from this day forward you are The Beatles with an A'”. As for the rest of the album, the demos and preliminary, often acoustic, versions of tracks are real gems which demonstrate the true talent of Paul McCartney, whose pleasant and down to earth personality makes us almost forget that he isn’t just any ordinary guy… A legend through and through. © YC/Qobuz
