Distractions - Paul McCartney - Flowers In The Dirt (CD, Album)

We made a little tape of them and sent them to Elvis, who loved them too. The DVD that comes with the Deluxe Edition includes all the music videos from the album, three new short films with unseen archive material that show some of the creation process of the album and the documentary 'Put It There' originally released on VHS in — a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Flowers In The Dirt as well as featuring live performances from his World Tour.

Watch the accompanying documentary; it is worth seeing for that alone. Quite a bit was made of his collaboration with Costello at the time, comparing Costello to Lennon. Of course, he is no Lennon, but he did bring the best out in McCartney, and thankfully got McCartney to return to his treasured Hofner bass, which he still uses. Wickens continues to play with McCartney today, making him the longest standing musician to work with McCartney.

He also worked with producers. All of these elements added up to create a near perfect album. It was almost as if he realised that without Lennon to carry the other half of the banner through his own solo work anymore, Paul felt it was up to him now to maintain the quality reached between them in the 60s.

As for the songs, Put it There and Distractions gave acoustic charm much as Blackbird and I Will had 21 years before while Figure of Eight and lead single My Brave Face could rock comfortably alongside any of the early Beatles tracks.

That only leaves second single This One, which combines typical Macca sentiment with powerful surreal imagery and the Brazilian-inspired How Many People, dedicated to assassinated rain forest campaigner Chico Mendes.

Paul the ethical man had never been away and How Many People was proof of that.
