Freedy Johnston Covers Two Paul McCartney Songs

I've been a fan of Freedy Johnston for nearly 15 years (has it really been that long?!). Last year I was happy to hear that he was releasing an all-covers CD. On Johnston's CD, "My Favorite Waste of Time", he does not one, but two Paul McCartney & Wings songs; "Listen to What the Man Said" and "Let Em' In". In addition to McCartney he also covers Tom Petty, The Eagles, Marshall Crenshaw, Matthew Sweet, The Hollies and others.

The sessions were recorded in Nashville with bassist Bob Babbitt and drummer Ed Greene, and more than a dozen guest musicians. The CD is available on Freedy's official Website or from Amazon.com

Here's a short sample of both of the two McCartney tunes; "Listen to What the Man Said" and "Let Em' In".
