Very well done and informative
I happened upon this podcast and was pleasantly surprised. Up to now they have only done the first 3 McCartney albums but so far they have delivered great insight into the making of the albums and also commentary and snippets of every album cut. Well done, looking forward to Red Rose Speedway, which I never owned. This podcast is worth checking out.
Well Done McCartney reviews
Very well informed. These guys know their stuff. I like their Honest reviews and very Informative. Looking forward to more. Ram is prob my Fave Solo Macca also.
Fans of McCartney and fans of music in general
Chris and Ryan are obviously huge fans, but this podcast is not just a fanzine. Both are educated and informed fans so they discuss what's great about the ablums and songs and what's not so great. Fans of McCartney will enjoy this but I also think that anyone who follows any musical artist over their career would be interested in the approach that Chris and Ryan take in discussing a body of work.
