My second 2023 inductee, 14th overall, is Sir Paul McCartney. He is the first to be in my hall twice, once for The Beatles and now for his post-Beatle career.
The Beatles’ bassist, vocalist, and songwriter would continue solo beginning in 1970 at the sign of the break-up of the band. He would release his first LP, McCartney, a month before the release of The Beatles’ swansong Let It Be. The album, rich with experimentation, has McCartney performing all instruments and vocals himself, aside from some backing vocals performed by Linda McCartney. It also contained the song, “Maybe I’m Amazed”.
I was shocked twice today about a new restaurant we tried. First, I would have thought this BBQ had been here for years yet it opened in the fall of 2021. The second was how great the service and food were and I’ll definitely be returning here. It was opened by pitmasters Justin Bradford and Jon Jaffin who pride themselves on high-quality smoked meats, made-from-scratch Southern sides with a Mexican twist, and special housemade sauces.
Melody Hill was the Circle Sky Records official magazine while we were open between 2002 and 2010.
Greetings From Windy (Melody Hill Executive Editor)
Hello Melody Hill readers. This issue is all about that wonderful musical invention called a record. Vinyl collectors and fans have a culture that is all their own. So if your universe spins at 33 or 45 this issue is dedicated to you. For this issue, we decided to ask the Circle Sky Staff to name the first album that changed their musical world. We then asked some of our musician friends to do the same and the results are spread out among these pages. Happy reading!
