I wonder how many people are keeping up with Paul's monthly feature...Siicking Out of My Back Pocket. I particularly like April's Playlist with a theme about "home and kindness". I have particulaly wanted to hear music during this terrible virus and to hear some of Paul's Solo and Post Beatles songs have been so inspiring.
Hear are April's "home and kindness" songs:
1.Home Tonight - I love this extra song from the Egypt Station sessions. How did Paul not include this on the original album is beyond me but the guy just has so many songs in his head. I also love the B-side...In a Hurry
2. With a Little Luck - some critics like to bash this song but I always liked it especially the album London Town version which Spotify smartly plays it here instead of the edited radio version which leaves out the best Paul vocal part.
3. Somebody Who Cares - In my opinion the best hidden gem on Tug of War. I love Paul's solo spanish guitar in the middle.
4. Mama's Little Girl - Who can't love this great little song that never made it on a Paul original album. Glad that Paul finally put it on the Red Rose Speedway Archive Remaster 2nd Disc sold at Target
5. How Kind of You - Great hidden gem on Chaos and Creation. What a terrific song!
6. Sweetest Little Show - One of my favorite hidden gems on Pipes of Peace
7. I Owe it All To You - Another great hidden gem on "Off the Ground". Check out one of the live versions on Youtube.
8. Hand in Hand - One of my absolute favorites from Egypt Station. One of Paul's best love songs ever in my opinion
9. Put It There - Probably my favorite song on Flowers in the Dirt and I like Paul's live versions evern better
10. I Am Your Singer - I think Paul loves this song from Wildlife because of Linda's vocals.
11. Eat At Home - one of my personal favorites on Ram.
Great selection for April. I look for this feature on Paul's website at the beginning of each new month and what the theme is. I especially like this feature because they include "back pocket" hidden gems. This month had a bunch of them. These are perfect examples of why I always object with any music critiic who mocks Paul's Post Beatles and Solo Career. Beyond the singles, Paul has great songs on every album and then all the songs that never make it on one of his original albums.
