About

From paulmccartney.com:

The David Kahne-produced Memory Almost Full was Paul’s first album to be released through Starbucks’ Hear Music label. “I actually started Memory Almost Full before the album Chaos And Creation In The Backyard,” Paul remembers. “The first recording session was back in the autumn of 2003 at Abbey Road with my touring band and producer David Kahne. I was right in the middle of it when I began talking with Nigel Godrich about a brand new project [which became Chaos And Creation In The Backyard]. When I was just finishing up everything concerned with Chaos… and had just got the Grammy nominations [in 2006] I realised I had this album to go back to and finish off. So I got it out to listen to it again, wondering if I would enjoy it, but actually I really loved it.” There was a lot of speculation about the album’s title, with many people pointing out that it was an anagram of “for my soulmate LLM” (LLM being Linda Louise McCartney). At first, Paul was enigmatic about whether or not this had influenced his decision, before eventually claiming it to be a mysterious, but happy, accident. It was also a personal album from Paul, one that drew on the past: “A lot of it is retrospective, drawing from memory, like memories from being a kid, from Liverpool and from summers gone.”
