Paul McCartney - Unplugged

So, back in the early 90s, there was this show called The Real World that was really popular with young MTV kids. So Paul appeared on it and guested and recorded this album there. What the hell can I say about it? The only unplugged performance worth a damn is Nirvana's and everyone knows this. Paul's, however, is actually pretty important because I'm sure a big-name bucket of scum like himself appearing on it soiled a few old womens depends.

And, to give him credit, he covers a lot of old shit on here and doesn't play any shitty Paul songs from Flowers In The Dirt, in fact, he plays the two best songs from McCartney; "Junk" and "That Would Be Something," a couple lesser known(but still great) Beatles numbers, and then a bunch of bebopping black people stuff. It's nice. It's not great or anything, but I'd take this over any of "serious musician" bullshit of this era anyday.

Rating: Eh, completely non-essential, but when you listen to it, it's not like you'll think it sucks.

Song: whatever, we don't do these for live albums.
