It makes sense that Paul McCartney would inspire one of the most impressive tribute-album lineups ever assembled. This 42-song blowout has everything from Willie Nelson doing a raggedly loving "Yesterday" to Billy Joel crushing "Maybe I’m Amazed." There are plenty of surprises, too. Did you know you wanted to hear Kiss thunder through Wings' glam spectacle "Venus and Mars/Rockshow"? Turns out you did.
