  • Personnel: Paul McCartney (vocals, guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, sitar, ocarina, piano, celesta, organ, Mellotron, drums, congas, percussion, background vocals); Hamish Stuart (vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, 12-string guitar, piano, bass guitar, percussion, background vocals); Linda McCartney (vocals, autoharp, cello, harmonium, Moog synthesizer, percussion, background vocals); Robbie McIntosh (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, slide guitar, Spanish guitar, mandolin, background vocals); Paul "Wix" Wickens (accordion, piano, Clavinet, synthesizer, percussion, programming, background vocals); Blair Cunningham (drums, congas, percussion, background vocals).
  • When Paul McCartney finally released his first proper '90s studio album, it turned out to be his Greenpeace/Earth First statement. The songs on this collection reflect Macca's philosophy regarding ecological awareness ("C'Mon People," "Cosmically Conscious"), the evils of animal testing ("Looking For Changes"). There are also love songs for wife Linda, who shared Paul's beliefs ("Golden Earth Girl," "I Owe It All To You"). OFF THE GROUND also reunited the songwriting team of McCartney and Elvis Costello on the ocarina-spiced "Mistress and Maid" and the tale of unrequited love that is "The Lovers That Never Were."
  • As has been the case with most of McCartney's career, OFF THE GROUND has plenty of love songs to go along with the socially conscientious numbers. "Get Out Of My Way" is a gentle '50s rocker about an imminent reunion, and "Winedark Open Sea" is a more ethereal number that finds Macca opening himself up to a lover on several different levels.
