Product Description

Amazon.ca

Technically, it was Paul and Linda McCartney, since this album was very much a collaboration between them. Some of the material was of the standard we expected ("Monkberry Moon Delight", "The Backseat of My Car", "Uncle Albert/AdmiralHalsey"), but somehow it all seemed entirely too whimsical, as if they'd spent a bit too long isolated on the farm. It was the expectations that were the problem, of course. Paul was simply making a light-hearted album, and we wanted earth-shaking pronouncements. Take Ram on its own terms (i.e., fun), and it's thoroughly enjoyable. --Chris Nickson

It's a must have. It has passed very well the test of time and I only wish I could write songs like that...
I owned (and own) the LP, and was furiously searching it in CD for some years (I know it's ready available now...), but HOW I SEARCHED FOR THAT ELUSIVE CD!.
Mc Cartney's second solo album is sligthly better then the first ("Mc Cartney" wich is also a MUST HAVE) and contains such imperishable songs as "Dear Boy", but what is more, in a relaxed way the output was above par and Paul sounds at his happiest and easylistening...
ONE OF MY FAVORITES FROM ALL TIME... GET IT FOR YOUR COLLECTION.

4.0 out of 5 stars Never Mind the Critics... Oct. 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
Honestly, sometimes I despair at the elitist critics who go on about how great 'good, honest, rock'n'roll' is, and then at the same time extoll angst, alienation and seriousness as essential to the music. Not that 'serious', tormented songs aren't good- often they can be quite powerful, but originally rock'n'roll was fun, not meaningful. Paul McCartney got a lot of stick from critics for releasing an album that was silly and fun- complete anathema to them. It was, and is, also musically brilliant pop music. The chord-changes, song sections, and hooks are vintage McCartney, although "The Back Seat of My Car" is a successful copping of the Brian Wilson style of composition. (McCartney was and is a huge fan of "Pet Sounds") The reason why this isn't quite as good as the best Beatles albums isn't that these songs are of significantly lower quality than the songs he did for the White Album and Abbey Road. In fact, these songs remind me a lot of those songs. And they aren't really more slapdash, silly or whimsical than a lot of his late Beatles songs. Imagine, though, putting together all the McCartney songs on the White Album, and a couple from Abbey Road, together on one album, and you'll get an album sounding a lot like this one. Great, yet missing the Lennon and Harrison songs to balance them out.
The silliness, like the voices on "Uncle Albert", was like a red flag to critics. It seemed like he was having too much fun putting together this album, not sweating over it like a genius determined to put out a masterpiece or nothing at all.
Many criticise Linda McCartney's singing. I find it's mostly quite good- better than Yoko's- although her singing IS annoyingly whiny in places on "Long Haired Lady".
Love that ukelele on 'Ram On'!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite McCartney Album - RAM May 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
I find it funny but nice that people are discovering this album for the first time in recent years. I wore this album out back in 1971, when I was 11. It is my favorite Paul McCartney album. It has his best hit single - "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey." I remember driving to California from Texas with my parents and this song came on the Western radio stations long before it reached Dallas. We heard it constantly on the radio. "Dear Boy" on the album precedes "Uncle Albert" and it is a perfect segway. If you like RAM, I think you will also like "Red Rose Speedway." RAM is a must for any Beatles/McCartney fan.

Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
This LP is simply stated...incredible. The remastering crew deserve top honors. I first purchased this back in the 70's and loved it then. Still my favorite PM album and probably a desert island top 10 pick. If you are getting back into vinyl, this should be a must have. Of the 15 LP's I've recently purchased, this stands head and tails above all the rest for dynamics and detail.

4.0 out of 5 stars Monkberry Moon Delight Jan. 18 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A few years before he died I had a conversation with Screamin' Jay Hawkins. I asked Jay why he never performed "Monkberry Moon Delight" live. This is what Jay said:
"I only sang that song but once. That was when I recorded it. And I only recorded that song because Paul begged me to do it. He sent me a demo of the song before he'd even made it on his own album ("Ram"). He said he wrote that song just for me and so I made that record as a favor for him. But I won't never sing that song again because its a DRUG song and I don't do no drug songs!"
Check out Screamin Jay's record and you'll see he changed the line "smokin' Monkberry Moon Delight" to "drinkin' Monkberry Moon Delight." Otherwise it sounds just like Paul's arrangement but freakier!
As for my review of "RAM". Well I'd say its Paul's best solo album because it sounds more like the Beatles than any of his other solo records. "Admiral Halsey", "Too Many People" and "Monkberry Moon Delight" all could have been Beatle songs!

5.0 out of 5 stars A long overlooked, underrated classic! Dec 22 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'm always amused at those who viewed Lennon as the "heavyweight" of the Beatles, and McCartney as the pop lightweight, when it was Paul who gave us "Birthday", "I'm Down", "Back In The U.S.S.R.", "Helter Skelter." Lennon was over-influenced by his wife in latter years, and not to good effect either (Yoko allowed to sing on "Bungalow Bill"???)
But about this album- I personally learned more about blues country, & old rock n' roll as a young aspiring guitarist than anything from solo Lennon. Just the funky, chunk riffs on "Three Legs" -dumber than hell tho the lyrics may be- showed me down-home music & rockin' tunes weren't necessarily opposites (compared to my peers in those days, who acted like Led Zeppelin or Alice Cooper invented Rock n' Roll!) The oddly gritty yet searing guitar work accompanied by the wild whoops on "Too Many People" was Paul coming alive, & breaking out of the restrained production that was a hallmark of Beatles albums. The weird rockabilly of "Smile Away" was like Elvis gone punk. "Heart of The Country" could have been one of the whimsier tunes on the White Album and would've flowed nicely. "Monkberry Moon Delight" was the most guttural vocal on ANY Beatles effort, together or solo. "Uncle Albert Admiral Halsey" was sheer Beatlesque dumb fun in the vein of "Yellow Submarine" & "Octopuses Garden".
I could go on & on, but I'll end this by recommending the imported version, with "Another Day/Oh Woman Oh Why" as bonus tracks. It's a blast and it kicks the crapola out of anything on "Imagine" or "Living in the Material World" "Get back" to the innocent days of sheer creative, wild, innocuous fun.
