McCartney On Itunes

McCartney's solo catalog appeared on Itunes today. He finally woke up and realized that it's a new world. Downloads are as important as brick and mortar. McCartney's store catalog consists of a newer title and a greatest hits one. But what about older stuff. As someone who once owned a lot of his LP's, but now only has the cream of his solo career on CD, I was most interested in stray cuts. Singles that have never appeared on any of his compilations. So, I downloaded these 4 songs:

Girls' School 1977
Put It There 1989
So Bad 1984
I've Had Enough 1978

Three of these charted love Top 40 and "Put It There" went nowhere but I think it's one of his best songs. Interestingly, his 1976 #1 live album Wings Over America is not online, even though it contains a #10 live version of "Maybe I'm Amazed". And that's the way it is with the catalog's of McCartney or an Elton John. There are gems scattered even amongst the lousy albums.
