Product Description

Amazon.ca

Whenever Paul McCartney's storied life has hit personal or professional hard times, he's wisely returned--figuratively and literally--to his musical foundations. In the Beatles' final, troubled days, it was Get Back, the aborted return-to-roots project salvaged as Let It Be, and during his late-80s solo doldrums it was the 1950s rave-up CHOBA B CCCP (a.k.a. the "Russian Album"). In the wake of Linda's passing, McCartney "gets back" to a motley dozen 50s hits, B-sides and obscurities and pens three surprising originals that neatly fit their mould. Using a band of seasoned British vets (including Pink Floyd's Dave Gilmour and Mick Green from Johnny Kidd & the Pirates on guitars, and Deep Purple's Ian Paice on drums) whose own unbridled affection for this music radiates from every track, McCartney tackles the familiar (Gene Vincent's "Blue Jean Bop," Elvis Presley's "All Shook Up") and unfamiliar (the Vipers' skiffle hit "No Other Baby," Carl Perkins's "Movie Magg") alike with enthusiasm, if not slavish devotion (as witnessed by his nifty zydeco revamp of Chuck Berry's "Brown Eyed Handsome Man"). The Mac originals "Try Not to Cry" and "What It Is" (and the choice of Ricky Nelson's "Lonesome Town") seem to deal not-so-obliquely with his love and loss, yet are delivered with an upbeat confidence that seem to belie his mourning. In the end, Run Devil Run may be as much personal exorcism as it is loving musical recapitulation, and McCartney is in peak vocal form throughout. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Macca's best album in years July 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
Paul McCartney's first album since 1997's Flaming Pie entitled Run Devil Run was released in October of 1999. The album was Paul's first since the death of wife Linda in 1998. The album was made at the urging of Paul's good friend, Pink Floyd guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour. In March of 1999, both Paul and Dave(whom Macca had been friends with since the recording of Dark Side of the Moon and a huge Floyd fan and predicted that Pink Floyd would become huge back in 1967) got together with Deep Purple skin basher Ian Paice, former Johnny Kidd guitarist Mick Green and 70s one hit wonder Pete Wingfield on keyboards and recorded Run Devil Run at Abbey Road Studios in London. Paul co-produced the album with Chris Thomas(whom worked with Paul on 1979's Back to the Egg and had worked with Dave on Dark Side and The Division Bell). Run Devil Run kicks off with Paul's take of Blue Jean Bop which is at first Paul singing with his bass then Ian comes in with the drums, then Mick comes in with his Fender Strat and lastly Dave using his Fender Esquire Telecaster(the same one that Dave had pictured on his About Face album). She Said Yeah is next and was excellent. The two Elvis covers of All Shook Up and I Got Stung are excellent. The former is sped up with some drums by Dave Mattacks who played drums on this track and Macca's original Try Not to Cry. Other highlights are Lonesome Town with Dave doing a killer guitar solo showing his guitar playing hasn't gone soft in recent years, Little Richard's Shake a Hand, the title cut(a Macca original), What it Is(another Macca original) and the closing Let's Have a Party which had Dave and Mick trading leads in the middle. The album was modestly received hitting #26(not bad considering competing in a N' Sync, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Christina Aguliera music world). This was the best covers album ever and is rivaled by the recently released Rush album Feedback.

5.0 out of 5 stars The King is Dead. . . . Feb. 8 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you ever loved the Beatles, then you probably already have this album. It won't SOUND like any stereotype of Beatle music because in their recording years THEY never stopped creating and recreating themselves . . . while so often seeming to tower above genre.
This is definitely a self conscious recreation of Paul, but one driven by grief and an equally fierce drive to live on. Paul is often (and often fairly) criticized for being slack or sentimental but the overriding sensation on this album is tautness. The music here is sharp, and very hard. It's as if Paul was recreating the youth who learned to play 7 hours a night in a Hamburg red light Star Club dive - only now he has 40 years of professionalism and accomplishment at his beck and call.
This is music that jabs and slashes. It is tight and metallic. There is a raucusness, but the control with which it is wielded is almost offputting until you realize what is behind it.
The song "No Other Baby" brings it all home. Paul uses this old cover from his youth to remind us how powerful control can be. It would be hypnotic and captivating even if we didn't know about his loss, but Paul's vocals with their calculated mastery can make pauses and hiccups just as emotive as primal screams. If "No Other Baby" takes your breath away, you will not find easy resolution on this album, but you might be grateful that the next number (Lonesome Town) is one of the only two tunes on this disk that could be felt as "relaxed".
I think what offends many about Paul is the often obvious insincerity of some of his glibber efforts. It's here too, but this is the WOUND UP off-hand gumchewing Paul that slugged a reporter in the days after John Lennon died.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Return to the Cavern March 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
Ah, nothing like a suddenly revitalized Macca screaming old fashioned rock-n-roll in his famous modified Little Richard yelp. Following on the heels of the Beatles Anthology and his great comeback "Flaming Pie", Sir Paul turned up the juice for "Run Devil Run" and delivered his most exhilarating record in nearly thirty years. Don't expect anything deep or thought provoking here, just be prepared to be jolted by the energetic force of Paul and Company. The rawness of the performances harkens back to the early Beatle days. Just think "I'm Down" or "Bad Boy" and you'll get the picture. The majority of the songs are covers, but don't let that put you off. Most are obscure rock-n-roll chestnuts which Paul and crew joyfully shred to smithereens. Listening to "Run Devil Run" is like taking a trip back in time and landing in Liverpool's Cavern Club or the Reeperbahn of Hamburg in 1962. For those of you who thought that Paul the rocker was gone forever, pick up this disc, you'll be quite surprised.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paul goes back to his roots and pulls up a rocker Oct. 22 2002
Format:Audio CD
For "Run Devil Run" (1999), Paul McCartney reached back to his early rock and roll roots. His early influences, Gene Vincent, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, Larry Williams and Chuck Berry can bet found on this disk, along with a couple McCartney originals.
Paul put together a band that included David Gilmour (Pink Floyd) on guitar, Mick Green (guitar), Ian Paice (drums) and Pete Wingfield (piano/keys) to produce some great covers of early rockers in styles ranging from straight ahead rock, blues, rockabilly and cajun. It's like updated versions of "Long Tall Sally" and "I'm Down" but with better recording equipment.
The disk opens with "Blue Jean Bop" and Paul's solo vocal, before moving to a drums/bass shuffle and then some fiery guitar work. "She Said Yeah" has a driving rhythm and lyrics typical of the period, "Little girl where did you come from? You fine little thing, you make my heart sing, come on baby let me buy the wedding ring."
The next cut is "All Shook Up", cowritten by the king himself, Elvis, but reworked to feature some fuzzy guitar. "Run Devil Run" was penned by Paul, a tune about a holy roller in a Chuck Berry style with some blazing piano work, hot chorus "run devil run, the angel's having fun, making winners out of sinners..." and check out that guitar solo. Gilmour is having great fun here, released from the confines of the Floyd.
"No Other Baby" shows Paul doing crooning in the vein of Chris Isaak. "Movie Magg" by Carl Perkins has a nice rockabilly shuffle while "Brown Eyed Handsome Man" has an accordion touch to provide a touch of cajun with the cool rhythm guitar. The disk closes with "Party", a pure rocker with some silly lyrics but a fitting finale.
This is a fun, danceable disk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic rock
Although most songs are not McCartney originals it is one of my favorite McCartney albums. The songs have a sixties style rock sound that can't be beat.
