Digitally remastered 1993 reissue on Parlophone of his1971 album recorded with his wife Linda. In addition to theoriginal 12 tracks on the #2 album, including the #1 smash'Uncle Albert/ Admiral Halsey', this reissue adds two bonustracks: his top five hit 'Another Day' and 'Oh Woman, OhWhy'. 14 tracks total.
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
