PMB087: We All Stand Together for Paul McCartney’s 70th Birthday (George Martin Orchestra, The Blue Mountain Pan Pipe Ensemble, Justus Köhncke, Damenkapelle, Calcutta Youth Choir, The Advisory Circle, R. Stevie Moore, Supercute, Pato Fu, Langley Schools)

PMB087 We All Stand TogetherHot on the heels of last week’s birthday special, we have another one this week in the form of a 70th birthday celebration for an equally colossal figure in the world of popular music, namely one Sir Paul McCartney.We’ve tried to avoid playing versions of Beatles-era McCartney and have instead concentrated on Sir Paul’s solo work. Particular highlights include arrangements of his songs by the Calcutta Youth Choir and Brazilian band Pato Fu – we fully expect to be playing more by these fabulous bands in future shows.

In addition to all the McCartney music we have also managed to cram in the flip-side of the latest in the Study Series from Ghost Box records by The Advisory Circle.
