Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Most Beatles content gets republished or reproduced over and over again because there's an audience for it, no matter how many times fans hear the same stories or songs. Even though it contains a lot of familiar anecdotes, McCartney 3, 2, 1 is unique because its primary focus is on the craft of songwriting. Hearing Sir Paul explain creative choices is interesting, but the overall effect is the equivalent to rewatching a movie for the director's commentary. It will appeal most to dedicated listeners.
