From 1979: An Overlooked McCartney Gem

This tune peaked at #20 on the Billboard chart on August 4, 1979.

Inexplicably, Sir Paul leaves this tune out of his lexicon and does not perform it in concert (such was the case when I saw him live in 1989). He performed a couple of numbers from the much-maligned Back To The Egg LP, upon which "Getting Closer" appears, but not this gem of a rocker.

Oh, well. It's a favorite of mine. Enjoy. And I think it proves pretty decisively that, when given his druthers, McCartney can rock with the best of them.
