Oh music lovers and their expectations. Especially their expectation that artists should live up to their expectations. *sigh*.
I enjoyed this tune for what it is and in so doing gave no thought to what it is not. Nor did I feel compelled to compare it either critically or *gack* competitively to anything done by the Beatles as a group or to other band members' solo works.

On another note, that's Paul beatboxing on this tune innit? Who was the first to do that?
Edit: OK, technically not Beatboxing (Wikipedia), rather it's Vocal percussion (Wikipedia) of which Beatboxing is a subtype. And Paul was not the first to do it.

{#Arrowd} yeah what domreo said below{#Arrowd}          

I have always thought what a shame that "Maybe I'm Amazed" didn't get done by the Beatles, it would have dwarfed any hit single that The Beatles did previously                 
The "Bowl of Cherries" album was unique as a low tech 'homemade' solo album with Paul playing all the instruments, and he didn't have to be a Beatle with all the expectations that entailed.  It was at at time when he was just enjoying a period of freedom from that fame, and his marriage and starting a family.  It was in a sense one his most authentic musical endeavors versus the commercial evolution of his solo career and formation of Wings after this.  If you listen to it all the way through and enjoy the photos it has a coherence and is almost a memoir type of vibe.  He even managed to produce a classic with 'Maybe I'm Amazed' among the other small personal songs .Not bad.

Have you?
nice.. songs like this make me just want to play around with a pile of instruments... 

I really felt life was a bowl of cherries listening to this album when it came out... not a weird album at all - brilliant was more like it.
The song is simple but it has such a loose, excellent feel to it. Love the guitar work!

Don't work for me,  like making bread and forgetting salt.
just missing it.
Did Paul play almost all the instruments on the whole album? 
great album from Sir Paul.
This is definitely one of the finest tune.
Great rhythm! 
One of my fave solo Paul tunes (and albums).
Thanks to the musical gurus at RP!
Interesting.  From a long forgotten album.  Nice to finally get it played and here's hoping it gets played some more.
Not the most creative lyrics, but still a nice tune. Good to finally hear this on RP.
