BBC Archive Voices: Paul McCartney - Interviews 1968 - 2009 is part of the BBC Archive Voices series from AudioGO, which presents interviews with key figures in the fields of entertainment, sport, politics and literature. Selected from the archives of BBC radio and television broadcasting, they offer a chance to hear compelling conversations from years ago. Some of the most lively, entertaining and informative encounters in BBC broadcasting, many of these interviews have not been heard since their original transmission...

In interviews ranging from 1968 to 2009, Paul McCartney talks about touring the UK with Wings (which was then a new band); a mid-70s offer to re-form the Beatles; the early days of the Beatles, and their final break-up. He also discusses his solo albums; receiving the freedom of the City of Liverpool; Christmas with his family; his love of music, and his career since the break-up of the Beatles up to 2009.

As interesting as this release is, it's a shame that there's no interviews regarding his relationship with Heather Mills. From a historical point of view this will be of interest to McCartney's fans, but for the casual listener it doesn't really reveal much about the man - it's more a collection of very non challenging interviews.
