RUSTY ANDERSON Until We Meet Again Hypertension (2012)

Rusty Anderson

Paul McCartney knows a talented musician when he sees one, so to have survived over a decade as his touring guitarist of choice speaks volumes for the fret board dexterity of Rusty Anderson.

You suspect that this aptly titled compilation from his last two albums (Born On Earth (2010) and Undressing Underwater (2004) plus a bonus track) was assembled with McCartney tour spin off sales in mind.

Well, one thing's for sure, anyone who attended one of the gigs and as a result indulges in this album will not be disappointed. All too often a paid sidekick's own material doesn't cut mustard, but Until We Meet again is packed with classic post Beatles/ Wings influenced pop rock.

Subtle references to the Fab Four, and his employer, abound but without ever being overly derivative. And when Rusty kicks out the jams, as he does on the mightily impressive Devil's Spaceship, you're magically transported back to the blues rock era of the early seventies!

Even the main man makes a guest appearance on Hurt Myself, and in many ways Until We Meet Again is the album Macca fans have been hoping the ex Beatle might make since the demise of Wings. That's high praise indeed.
