This is an album of cover versions of "easy listening/crooning" songs that Paul McCartney remembers from his childhood. The are delivered in a fetching, appealing manner, with his ageing voice adding a nice feeling to what are mainly quiet, melodic and relaxing songs.
Some of my favourites are the most jazzy ones - the jaunty "Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive" and the smoky, late night feel of "My Valentine" and "Get Yourself Another Fool". Stevie Wonder adds some trademark harmonica on "Only Our Hearts", too.
