명백하게, there’s not much place for modesty in this sort of exercise, 과 “McCartney 3,2,1” feels a bit arbitrary in the way that it dices up the episodes, strategically drawing from old rehearsal and performance footage to augment the artist’s recollections.
“We all knew we had the freedom to goof around,” McCartney recalls, discussing the “great camaraderie” of musicians at the time, and issues like his reluctance to include Beatles songs in his stage shows, at first, after becoming a solo artist.
This has become a boom time for music documentaries
, including the aforementioned Beatles project to come
, Hulu’s recent “Summer of Soul” and Apple TV+’s “1971: The Year That Music Changed Everything.”
Relatively small in scale, “McCartney 3,2,1” might not top that list, but for anyone who knows that it was Lennon who added “It can’t get no worse” to McCartney’s more upbeat lyrics on “Getting Better,” as times for musical nostalgia go, it doesn’t get much better than this.
“McCartney 3,2,1” premieres July 16 on Hulu.
