album notes

Featuring songs initially recorded during sessions for the Tug Of War album, Pipes Of Peace continued Paul's rich vein of song-writing form and included two massive hits, the Michael Jackson duet ‘Say Say Say’ and the title track. The collaboration with Jackson – then the biggest star on the planet thanks to the success of his Thriller album – extended to another track, the breezy ‘The Man’. Lyrically, the album features Paul’s thoughts on love, peace and the future, centred around the symbol of the pipes of peace. In 1993 the album was reissued to include the hit ‘We All Stand Together’ from the Rupert the Bear project, as well as two other previously unreleased songs – ‘Twice In A Lifetime’ and ‘Simple As That’.
