    "Flowers In The Dirt" brings back such great memories. It was Paul McCartney's best album since "Tug Of War" (7 years earlier) - and it prompted his first American tour since 1976! This package is chock-full of Paul's most inventive songs - "My Brave Face," "Figure Of Eight," "This One," "Put It There" - just to name a few. Also, Elvis Costello's presence seemed to push Paul beyond some of the mediocrity he offered on "Press To Play" (the previous album). The Best-Buy bonus 45 is also worth it, because the non-album "b" side ("Flying To My Home") is a good song in itself - I really wish it was one of the "extras" on the c.d. The demos are certainly worth hearing - they give us McCartney die-hards more reason to believe that this man is truly a 20th cenury genius!

    Amid all the 80s mish-mash of overproduced schlock Paul McCartney comes out with a pleasant breath of fresh air (largely due to assistance from co-writer Elvis Costello).Probably his best effort since Band On The Run or Tug Of War. 'My Brave Face' harkens back to the good old days of Beatlemania. 'Put It There' is a jovial pop jumpy tune of sugary sweetness.'Figure Of Eight' rings in like an elusive piece of wistful well intentioned showmanship. Like before , the 80s were full of one hit wonders but this one is a diamond in the rough.......

    Great album...really a gem of the 80's for McCartney. The archive release program has been great if not a little slow. Best Buy exclusives are always welcome...this one has a special limited edition 7 inch single.. Back to the album, fantastic album catching McCartney on the cusp of his big comeback tour. Who can forget the gem My Brave Face, this version has a 2nd disk of the original demos that McCartney and Elvis Costello worked on for this and his next album (and Elvis's).

    Paul McC has some great music. Much of it is on this album. So happy and upbeat. Each song is different. It's a product of its time, back when music was fun and inoffensive. (Isn't that what music should be?) Our 4 year old LOVES every song and, unlike contemporary music, theres nothing inappropriate for her young ears. We're SO glad we finally got this album. We're just sorry we didn't get it sooner. If you want happy upbeat music that's fun to listen to, BUT THIS CD! :-)

    Paul McCartney seems to do his best work when he works with a collaborator. Here, several tracks are featured co-written by Paul and Elvis Costello, his best writing partner since John Lennon. Though already a great album as released in 1989, and featuring four such collaborations, the bonus disk includes several more, some of which were included on both men's later separate albums. These were demos but so well done they justify the cost of purchase alone.

    5 stars for the music as I am a forever Paul McCartney fan and am loving having his albums remastered with modern technology. The added delight is having the unreleased demos, and hearing a song evolve. I love that Best Buy has these special promotions - this time a 7" vinyl - as I love to be able to get something special along with the album. I always wait to see what Best Buy's offering will be before buying it anywhere else. Highly recommended!

    While I am a Beatles fan since 1964, I can't say the same for Paul. I buy his releases to keep the collection current. Actually, I bought this to get the free vinyl single ( which I ordered ). I did however, play the discs and while better than some of his others, it ain't the Beatles. It is better than then some. I would recommend it only because of his past association with the Beats and he needs the bread to buy back his songs.

    Although one of McCartney's better post-'70's solo/Wings efforts, it's probably not in his top 5 overall. That being said, the addition of the second disk in this set gives some interesting insights into the creative process that created this album so it's worth buying for the sonic upgrade and for the second disk. The Best Buy-only addition of a to-be-redeemed 45" single makes this a further reason to order this.
