Unplugged (The Official Bootleg)
Released: Jun 1991
Label: Hear Music
When it comes time to thank someone for the "Unplugged" supertrend of the 1990s, make the card out to Paul McCartney, who appears with this LP of stripped-down classics that was recorded at MTV's newly-launched television show. It was the first LP to be culled from the series, and, like most of the ones that followed, the performance is breezy and enjoyable. McCartney reaches back into Beatles' material, covers, and selections from his entire solo career for a portrait of a towering artist at the beginning of his journey into the sunset.
