Someone needs to straighten out their priorities over at Vitamin. While the label issues string tributes of also-ran modern rockers (Chevelle, Godsmack) willy-nilly, it finally gets around to this Paul McCartney guy in 2004. Of course, now that we've heard it, there's no real reason to do so again. These instrumentals, chamber quartet versions of "Yesterday," "Can't Buy Me Love," "Eleanor Rigby," and "Blackbird" are polite but forgettable, fodder for 101 Strings Orchestra fans.
