Take It Away: The Complete Paul McCartney Archive Podcast ➜

I discovered Take it Away a few weeks ago: It’s a podcast dedicated to Paul McCartney’s solo career, one album at a time. It’s definitely for the really dedicated fan, and the hosts tend to be give Macca more leeway than others perhaps would, but it’s nice to finally hear something nice about Press to Play. They also discuss the infamous pot bust in Japan, and, like Tom Doyle in his excellent McCartney biography Man on the Run, wonder why McCartney would put a full pound of hash in his travel bag, barely bothering to hide it. It’s a a mystery for the ages why a prodigious pot smoker of two decades would do something like that, but perhaps one day we’ll find out.
