By Stephen Pate – If you feel about Paul McCartney like some people do about Dylan – love the songs hate the singer – your wish has come true with The Art of McCartney
All the best Paul McCartney tunes sung by people who don’t sing as well as he does – the greatest tribute.
OMG Bob Dylan sings “Things We Said Today.”
That’s classic.34-tracks of The Art of McCartney is now streaming. Paul McCartney as he never sounded in The Beatles, Wings or just Sir Paul – the tribute of tributes.
Of course, Sir Paul McCartney is one of the greatest songwriters of all time and a fantastic performer.
Among the cover artists paying homage to Sir Paul are Heart, B.B. King, Barry Gibb, Brian Wilson, Billy Joel, Kiss, Willie Nelson and Steve Miller and Brian Wilson. OK I give in – I have to own this album just for the novelty and Heart – what can I say about carrying a torch?
November 17th 2014 is the release date for The Art of McCartney (Amazon Deluxe Exclusive) (2 CD 1 DVD) at $22.98.
Same price in Canada for The Art of McCartney (Amazon Deluxe Exclusive) [2 CD DVD] with free shipping. What a deal for Canadians. That’s a no brainer.
The deluxe packaging has a double CD, 60 minute film, 16-page booklet, and a hard cardboard sleeve supposedly shaped like Sir Paul’s Hoffner bass.
