Take it Away
This is one of my personal favorites, off of "Tug of War." Yes, that's really John Hurt, along with Ringo, Eric Stewart and Steve Gadd helping out. Oh, and OMG, George Martin! Paul can get the top talent any time he wishes, and you can think of this as the Beatles family pulling together after John Lennon's death, with Barbara Bach and others making little cameos. Linda does some nice backing vocals on this. Features a heavy brass sound that is somewhat unusual for Paul.
