  • Teresa from Mechelen, BelgiumEdwin,Mac more talented than John Lennon? Maybe, more talented than Phil Spector? NO WAY !!!
  • Edwin from Vancouver, BcI you ever need reminding of just how much more talented Paul was than you know who...
  • Teresa from Mechelen, BelgiumA very good song, I don't have the album but I have this song on a double-cd with all famous duets from The Everly Brothers, Ike and Tina Turner, Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood, The Righteous Brothers, Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly, Peter Paul and Mary and many others.
  • Kevin from Reading , PaA pretty good song, and there a few others that weren't bad on this "reunion" album, but the 80s overproduction is a detriment. The album also contains a Jeff Lynne song, "The Story of Me," that suffers from syntheizer overload.
