My Valentine Live at Ahoy Rotterdam on 24-03-2012

Paul McCartney sings "My Valentine" in Rotterdam for the first time in March 2012.

Paul McCartney's album "Kisses on the Bottom" included his original composition "My Valentine." Written as a sort of ode to American standards, the song sounds as if it was written in the 1930s or 1940s, which is one of Paul's unique gifts. The first time that Paul performed "My Valentine" was at the 24 March 2012 Ahoy Rotterdam show. You be the judge, but I think that it sounds pretty good live. "My Valentine" also suits Paul's mature voice better than a lot of his earlier tunes, which is not surprising since he just wrote it. It's nice to hear this version of "My Valentine" because it gets just an occasional hint of a rock edge that is completely absent on the album version. Rotterdam was the first stop on Paul's world tour.

Paul McCartney's band at Ahoy Rotterdam was Paul 'Wix' Wickens (vocals, keyboards, guitar, percussion, harmonica), Brian Ray (vocals, guitar, bass), Rusty Anderson (vocals, guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (vocals, drums).
