    Great song! I love it. One of the best McCartney’s album. Good for you, Paul! All the best from Argentina!

    Always LOVED this tune. When the entire band and electric guitars come in is one of my favorite recorded moments. I don’t notice much of a difference with the mix, but I’ll have to break out my original.
