KIsses on the bottom a decent album

Student Feature – Jamie Bonthius BMX : Talon Marks Campus News Hour

Sir Paul McCartney doesn’t live up to his Beatles’ reputation on his new released album, “Kisses on the Bottom.”

The entire album is filled with intimate, charming jazz-based blues music wrapped around together through guitar, bass and piano.

The only two original works that McCartney composed were the singles, “My Valentine,” and “Only Our Hearts.”

Guitar God Eric Clapton, and Stevie Wonder make a guest appearance on “My Valentine,” a song that promises a charming win to flatter anyone who wishes to impress another person. Clapton also appears on “Get Yourself Another Fool.”

McCartney’s vocals in this album take a person back to the Frank Sinatra days of the 1940’s through his soft singing.

He collaborated with Diana Krall and John Clayton for this album.

Except the two original songs, McCartney performs compositions from the 1920’s and 1930’s that he grew up listening to. McCartney first heard a number of these songs performed by his father.

There is a vibe throughout the album that envisions a romantic red wine drinking sense and has a picture written throughout the songs of a woman dressed in a red cocktail dress having a dinner date with a man wearing a suit, slow dancing to the album.

It is an understanding that this album calms a person down and isn’t a drag to make time to listen to.

It is obvious that McCartney’s age is not holding him back from singing and performing.

No McCartney fan should be disappointment in saying that this dazzling album is a negative approach for him.

“Kisses On the Bottom” came out just in time for Valentine’s Day for a person to buy to impress that special someone.

At the age of 69, this album came out at an appropriate time for McCartney to cover these American classics.

The album title was inspired by Fats Waller’s “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself a Letter.”

This is the first album that McCartney released since his 2007 “Memory Almost Full,” and is his 15th studio album.
