Take It Tony
From Wing's much maligned first LP Wildlife, here is
Little Richard Paul McCartney cranking up the volume and rocking out like nobody's business on Mumbo. Frankly I always loved this album. Granted a lot of folks - who also hated Ram - groused about the lack of studio finesse. But for me this album has a bit of everything that Paul does so well. Great melodies, interesting harmonies, and the ability to rock out. Sure Mumbo has little to offer in the lyrics department, but Paul's bass and Denny Seiwell's drumming just tear it up. And then there are those awesome organ interjections and the energy level just keeps pumping all the way through.
