PAUL McCARTNEY...Flowers In The Dirt
Released: 25 years ago today, June 5, 1989
Highest Chart Position: #21 U.S. Billboard Album Charts
Track Highlights: All of them

This album is one of the reasons I am a huge McCartney fan, besides the fact that he was once one of the Beatles.  This album is absolutely fantastic, my personal 2nd favorite McCartney record ("Flaming Pie" being number 1). Starting with track 4 ("Distractions") all the way to track 8 ("This One") is the best 5 song stretch of any album in rock 'n' roll history.  Yes, that's my opinion and I can have it as I do believe it, but it is reason enough for me to highly, highly, highly recommend you check this album out.  A 6 out of 5 stars, that's how good it is.
