Product Description

PAUL MCCARTNEY Flaming Pie (1997 UK 14-track CD album which includes the single releases The World Tonight Young Boy & Beautiful Night picture booklet with images taken by Linda McCartney CDPCSD171)

Amazon.ca

Just when everyone has given up on Sir Paul's ever releasing another decent pop song, he turns around and surprises us all with his best album since the mid-1970s. After working on the Beatles' Anthology series, he was reminded of the standards of music he'd long forgotten and was pressed to meet them. Even Jeff Lynne, who helped on much of it, kept himself very much in the background, and let Mac do the right thing, playing and singing most everything, with some help from Ringo and guitarist Steve Miller, whose presence was a mixed blessing. Even if the songs don't scale the heights of the Glory Years, they remind us of the true talent that was McCartney once again. A pleasure to the ears. --Chris Nickson

The beginning of McCartney's later day career renaissance

Bob Dylan in a recent interview has said there's really only one person in music today that to him is absolutely stunning. That person, naturally, is Paul McCartney. ""I'm in awe of McCartney. He's about the only one that I am in awe of. He can do it all. And he's never let up... He's just so damn effortless." (Taken from a Rolling Stone interview from summer 2007).

High praise from someone so iconic as Bob Dylan. The last ten years for both McCartney and Dylan have proven them to be the most interesting artists of their generation currently recording. Over the last decade, both Dylan and McCartney have had a massive resurgence in their careers. While each are following their own idiosyncractic paths, both have proven themselves to have remarkable fertile songwriting during this stage in their careers.

And here's the trick. Both are the best at what they do. Sure, you can't imagine Paul McCartney being able to pull of the effortless aural history lessons in songs Dylan has been doing, each steeped in the American tradition and that "Old, Weird, America" of the Anthology of American Folk Music. Come on, could Paul really write "Nettie Moore", "Ain't Talkin'", "Mississippi", "Things Have Changed," "Tell Ol' Bill", or the masterpiece "Cross the Green Mountain"? But then again, you can't see Dylan writing the effortless melodic pop masterpieces McCartney written in FLAMING PIE, DRIVING RAIN, CHAOS & CREATION IN THE BACKYARD (one of my favorite albums of the 2000s), or MEMORY ALMOST FULL.

When FLAMING PIE hit the stores in 1997, four years separate it from McCartney's previous studio offering, OFF THE GROUND. A lot happened during those four years, namely, The Beatles multi-media project THE ANTHOLOGY.

Trite or not, cruel or not, James Paul McCartney creates better under stress and in emotional pain. Only months after this CD was released, the new Knight Bachelor lost the only woman he believed he'd ever love. Surely, even though the press was being assured Linda was "fine", she wasn't, the fact of her illness was informing his work.
Just as "McCartney" was created during the hazy period he was trying to define himself after the Beatles, and "McCartney II" surfaced after his jail experience in Japan, "Flaming Pie" shows a more vulnerable, less cheeky McCartney, and with good results.
Unlike a lot of Wings albums, or "Tug of War" or "Pipes of Peace", this album doesn't just yield one or two songs for the "It's got a beat AND you can dance to it!" crowd. Instead, the lyrics reign here, introspective, haunting at times.
Not that some of the songs don't rock! How could they not with Jeff Lynne and Steve Miller helping out? Even fellow Two-tle, Ringo, helps out with Beautiful Night. But since it's his voice in addition to drums, that's an element of sentiment, not one of quality.
The unusual production of some cuts, like the Victrola in "Souvenir", reminds one of the days the Beatles were experimenting with all kinds of sound at Abbey Road.
My one disappointment about this CD happened a couple years after its release. "Little Willow" shows up here, dedicated to a friend who'd died of cancer and her children. Only a bit of detective work would reveal that this friend was Maureen Starkey, Ringo's ex-wife, and the kids Lee and Zak. But after Princess Diana was killed and a memorial album put together for her, the song Paul "donated" in her memory was....

Fresh off his work on the Beatles' "Anthology" albums, which reminded him of the creative standards set by his legendary old band, Paul McCartney recorded 1997's "Flaming Pie," filled with new inspiration & vigor, and came up with one of his best solo albums in years (although Paul would do even better with 2001's magnificent "Driving Rain"). It's just tremendous fun hearing Paul get back in touch with his creative genius once more, since his most recent albums up to this point, though not without their share of good songs, had been a little TOO soft & fluffy overall. Not so with "Flaming Pie". Standouts include the excellent pop-rock of "The World Tonight," "Young Boy," the title song, "Used To Be Bad," and "Beautiful Tonight," as well as lovely songs like "Somedays," "Calico Skies," "Little Willow," "Great Day," and the gorgeous beauty that is "Heaven On A Sunday," arguably the best song on the album, and featuring an amazing electric guitar solo by Paul's son, James, who was just 19 at the time. Paul's work throughout is quite wonderful, and there's excellent contributions thoughout by Steve Miller, Jeff Lynne, Paul's Beatle pal Ringo Starr, and the lovely Linda McCartney. While "Flaming Pie" doesn't represent Paul McCartney's *greatest* solo material---hence my 4-star rating instead of a perfect 5---this is undeniably a wonderful album, and a definitive step in the right direction for Sir Paul. "Flaming Pie" is simply delicious.
