"Unplugged (The Official Bootleg)" by Paul McCartney – ****

First released: 1991

McCartney decided to take a gentler turn in his live performance repertoire and as a result, released this fine album. Unfortunately, for unknown reasons, he made it a limited edition in the US and the album stalled at #14 on the charts. Had it had a general release, it is possible that the record could have topped the charts, and would have been his first chart-topper since 1982. Also inexplicable is the removal of a nice version of "Things We Said Today" that was later released as a b-side.
