This is McCartney's first collaboration with producer George Martin since the Beatles disbanded, and the difference in production values between this album and the ones that preceded it are startling. The material is mostly excellent (the weakest track being "What's That You're Doing," one of two collaborations with Stevie Wonder) and the musicianship is stellar. There's a fun duet with Carl Perkins (a big influence on the Beatles, particularly George Harrison) and the hit song "Ebony and Ivory," which is one of McCartney's least-appreciated tracks, but one of my favorites. The album is also notable for the inclusion of "Here Today," McCartney's touching remembrance of his friend John Lennon.
Oddly enough, while the songs for the follow-up album "Pipes of Peace" were recorded at the same time, and there are a few excellent tracks on the album, "Pipes" is a less coherent coherent collection despite Martin's production.
