Album Series: RAM Part 3. "Vindication" with Duncan Driver

Description

This is part three of the RAM extravaganza. In this episode, Diana and Duncan continue their deep dive into McCartney's brilliant album RAM. They pick up their analysis where they left off — with the exquisite Dear Boy — and make their way through the rest of the album.

In the first part of their deep dive, they reviewed the cultural context of the album’s origin and reception and puzzled over why this ambitious, eccentric, and distinctive masterpiece remains overlooked by many. They also reframe Paul as an artist and cultural force.
