Golden Voice narrator Simon Vance performs this biography with sonority and dramatic range. Its account of Paul McCartney's life during the four years after the Beatles' breakup is full of personal and professional details that humanize his outsized celebrity. Through exhaustive research and access to many who knew him, this work covers a lot of ground while staying in touch with the ambitious and occasionally depressed Liverpool lad who longed to be known as himself rather than Paul the Beatle. While Vance's interpretations are invariably in tune with the authors' writing, some listeners might wish for more sensitivity to the dramatic shifts associated with McCartney's incredible drive and moodiness--the powerful forces that repeatedly roiled his interactions and make his initial post-Beatle years so compelling.
