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 lighthearted album, and we wanted earth-shaking pronouncements. Take Ram on its own terms (i.e., fun), and it's throughly enjoyable. --Chris Nickson

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.
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'!Read more ›
Paul and Tony Bennett are to music what Audrey Hepburn was to acting. You get grace, class and talent. What better combination can you find that that? Gentle melodies; some intense guitar work and a mellifluous voice - now you KNOW it just doesn't get any better than that! i JUST love the "Ram" collection! You also get some Paul humor along with the excellent songs. "Ram On" is a spoof on "Ramon," a stage name Paul used during the 1960 - 1961 pre-Beatle days in Hamburg, Germany.
The caliber of the song collection won't disappoint either. "Long Haired Lady" is just beautiful. So is "Dear Boy" and "Heart of the Country." I love every single song on this collection and "Too Many People" remains a favorite of mine to this very day. Paul McCartney is, as I've said countless times a nonpareil performer and he has a seemingly limitless supply of talent. I've had the good fortune to see Paul in concert 3 times and rest assured, he sounds just as good as ever!
Yes, for Paul song writing is child's play and we are lucky he has such a facility for music. His beautiful songs range from the simplistic to the complex, each a stellar gem of talent in their own individual way.
As another U.S. reviewer noted, I, too love the 1971 John Lennon classic "Imagine," but that album/CD alone does not reflect the melodic fluidity nor the versatility of "Ram." Paul McCartney was and remains an incredibly versatile performer and that continues to come through in all of his recordings.
