Macca's Ration Book Romance: 'We Three'

Fred Dellar, Rock's Backpages, February 2012

PAUL MCCARTNEY'S latest album, Kisses On The Bottom, is, to a great extent, based around a number of songs his father once loved: age-old standards from a pre-World War II age, along with later ballads that were rendered to the accompaniment of coupons being ripped from ration books, or post-war pops fashioned for a generation who talked in terms of demob suits and tuning-in the wireless.
