Episode 27 – Memory Almost Full

After the smash success of Chaos and Creation, Paul McCartney followed up with Memory Almost Full, another excellent almost refreshing album produced by David Kahne. Taken from a cell phone, the title describes both modern day life and Paul’s songwriting reflections on the album. He explores his “early days” and even gives us a glimpse of the end with the second to last track on the LP. Highlights include “Ever Present Past,” “Only Mama Knows,” and “The End of the End.” Well, you can come on to our place if you want to, you can do anything you want to do, but listen to this episode first.
