…everybody had a good time…

27 11 2009

Over the years, Macca’s solo renditions of Beatles’ classics have gotten bigger — bloated really — for stadium shows.  All polish, no grit.

But here Paul straps on his guitar and gets after it with his 2009 touring band on the highly underrated Beatles tune “I’ve Got A Feeling.”  This performance has all the balls of the original and retains the feel of a barroom blisterer.  There’s no sense that this was performed by arena-ready hired guns.  It’s as if Paul was back on the roof with the lads.

I’m stunned at how good this rendition is.  There’s one major downside: Abe Laboriel, Jr. (badly) singing John’s middle eight.  Isn’t there a better singer in Paul’s band?
