Paul McCartney marks the release of Memory Almost Full with an intimate 90-minute set at north London's Electric Ballroom.

Fresh Air's rock critic takes a listen to the 21st solo album from the former Beatle.

McCartney, who turned 65 today, launched Memory Almost Full with a free concert in London earlier this month — back when he was 64. It's an occasionally reflective life-and-loves disc that ranges from an upbeat dance-party opener to a farewell-to-love track.
