Run Devil Run songs Product Information
Run Devil Run album for sale by Paul McCartney was released Oct 05, 1999 on the Capitol label. After decades spent making lush, carefully crafted pop records, Paul McCartney makes a joyous return to his roots with RUN DEVIL RUN. On this album, McCartney returns to the music that first inspired him to become a musician--early rock & roll, rockabilly, and R&B Run Devil Run CD music. Much as Bob Dylan journeyed back to his folk roots and invested them with new resonance on WORLD GONE WRONG, McCartney attacks the material here with freshness and vitality. Run Devil Run CD music contains a single disc with 15 songs. ...See Full Description

||BACK TO BASICS|
People need to get over their "Lennon: Messiah" complex and fast. Lennon was as flawed an artist as Paul McCartney could ever be... and Paul has suffered at the hands of Lennon axe-grinders ever since. True that Paulie can allow his likeable side to overrun his more "Artisic" qualities. If Paul ever attempted a "Plastic Ono Band" album it would be a disaster. Instead, he wisely makes something more suitable to his talents; a rock 'n' roll rave-up album to deal with the pain of Linda's death. Paul has had to walk in a Lennon-fan-induced shadow for long enough now.

||Great material and performances|
Flaming Pie demonstrated a desire for McCartney to return to his roots. This album shows McCartney reenergized by his youthful love of straight a head rock n roll. One of the best cover albums by any artist (and yes, it does blow away Lennon's well received Rock N Roll album), Run Devil Run puts McCartney firmly back in the rock n roll driving seat.

||Vintage Rock 'n' Roll from Paul|
Oddly enough, this record reminds me of "Ram"; a spirited looseness combined with Paul's drive to create the rock sounds and atmosphere of his youth through the prism of his style and approach. "Monkberry Moon Delight", "Smile Away" and "3 Legs" would fit next to most of the songs on this CD nicely.

||McCartney Doing What He Does Best, Plus|
Whatever else Paul McCartney can do, and he can do many things, he always has been able to deliver a rock'n'roll cover in a manner which shames the original. This album is better than other McCartney rock albums because of the song choice. The originals, like Run Devil Run, show that McCartney can still rock with the best of them, but the covers like "No Other Baby" only can be heard as a passionate farewell to Linda. It is hard to listen to the searing performance of that song without a tear in the eye. So, to get moving again, McCartney both faces his loss and goes back to the rock'n'roll source from which he always recharges his batteries when he is spent. The result is one of his best albums.
