TOP 40/POP NEWS: Paul McCartney Gets a Little Help From His Friends Including Billy Joel, Bob Dylan And Barry Gibb and Other Noted Musicians on a New McCartney Tribute Album!
Billy Joel, Brian Wilson, Barry Gibb, Bob Dylan, B.B. King, and many others are set to appear on The Art of Paul McCartney, a new tribute album dedicated to the amazing songwriter Paul McCartney. Joel sings, “Maybe I’m Amazed,” and “Let It Be”, which both appear on the album. “The Piano Man goes for broke on his performance of the smash hit from McCartney’s 1970 solo debut, McCartney, belting the song’s devotional lyrics with the vigorous bombast of a young man.”
Joel talked to Rolling Stone magazine about his relationship with McCartney’s famous James Bond theme, “Live and Let Die”. “Paul stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park,” Joel says. “I love the song; it’s kind of a whacked song. We used to do it at sound check; matter of fact we still do it at sound check. It’s just fun to play because it’s so over-the-top.” (Also be sure not to miss Joel’s fantastic, impromptu rendition of the Goldfinger theme.)
The Art of McCartney compilation, will see its official release November 18th. It will include cover songs of McCartney’s famous songs as done by big names like “Bob Dylan (“Things We Said Today”), Brian Wilson (“Wanderlust”), Barry Gibb (“When I’m 64”), B.B. King (“On the Way”), Chrissie Hynde (“Let It Be”), Smokey Robinson (“So Bad”), Heart (“Letting Go”) and many more. McCartney’s own son James appears on the album as well, recording a version of the Beatles’ “Hello Goodybe” with the Cure.”
The Art of McCartney was conceived by onetime McCartney producer Ralph Sall, who first thought up the project way back in 2003. After getting McCartney’s permission, Sall set about recording songs using Paul’s backing band, and asked other performers to lay down vocals. The collection of songs will be available in various formats including “a 42-track deluxe set with hardbound books, a DVD documentary about the making of the comp and more.”
