Listen To What The Man Said
This double-disc set is THE definitive collection of Macca's post-Beatle period through circa 1984. There is no stone left unturned... for instance the "Hits" portion of the program eloquently combines McCartney's previous greatest hits packages, <i>Wings Greatest</i> and <i>All The Best</i>, into one CD - with the only notable exceptions being the collaborations with Michael Jackson ("Say Say Say") and Stevie Wonder ("Ebony & Ivory"). These are the songs that have been absorbed into our global consciousness.<p>But what is perhaps even more enjoyable and refreshing than the "Hits" is the "History" disc which contains all the songs from <i>McCartney</i>, <i>McCartney II</i>, <i>Ram</i>, <i>Tug of War</i>, <i>Venus and Mars</i> and <i>Band on the Run</i> that should have been "Hits" ("Maybe I'm Amazed," "Take It Away," "Every Night," "Junk") plus a few songs only available as B-sides ("Daytime Nightime Suffering"), singles ("Rockestra Theme") and rarities ("Bip Bop/Hey Diddle"). Put these two discs in your changer on random access and you will have hours of some of the greatest popular music from this century.
