Biography

It is the eternal question for an artist of Paul McCartney’s stature: what next? What next when you have… well, that list of achievements, with even the long-touted standards album now ticked off with last year’s ‘Kisses On The Bottom’, hardly needs re-iterating. On one level, you might reasonably think that in terms of awards, honours, sales figures, shows and ... Read more in Amazon's Paul McCartney Store

Editorial Reviews

Deluxe three disc (two CD + DVD) pressing of this 2009 live release from the Rock legend. Paul McCartney's historic three-night christening of New York's Citi Field in July of 2009 has been unanimously hailed by critics and audiences alike as the concert experience of a lifetime. Now, with Good Evening New York City, it is documented for the ages. This is the ultimate McCartney live collection - from The Beatles to Wings to solo classics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vast improvement over the last several Macca live DVDs November 17, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I bought this set, primarily for the DVD.

The DVD is a VAST improvement over McCartney's previous live videos.

Let's take a look:

Rockshow (great movie, but not a complete show.)

Get Back (incomplete show. annoyingly cut from many different shows. Too many audience shots, etc.)

Paul Is Live (incomplete show. Too many MTV style cuts. Headache inducing.)

Back In The US (every song is interrupted by documentary footage. Way too much focus on audience shots, and not enough of what's going on stage.)

Live In Red Square / St. Petersburg (horrible editing. Like Paul Is Live, its headache inducing.)

The Space Within US (incomplete show. Documentary footage and celebrity testimonials interrupt every song. Extra disappointing, as this was one of my favorite Paul tours, and a horrible document of what was an amazing tour.)

Oh, how I wished Paul would just release a concert DVD, with no documentary footage between songs. Of a complete show. And edit it well.

Good Evening, NYC fits the bill.

Almost.

It is the full show. The editing is not as jumpy as some of the others.

No extraneous footage between songs, ruining the flow of the concert.

But I subtract a star for the inclusion of 'audience cam'. At the shows, they distributed little handheld video cameras, to a number of concertgoers. And some of this amateur footage, is sometimes mixed in with the professional footage. I'd have rather had the pro footage only.

So its not exactly what I wanted. But it's getting closer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Concert, A Great DVD November 17, 2009
Format:Audio CD
A disclaimer: I was at the first night at Citi Field, so I watched with memories of that great performance. I got the deluxe package from Best Buy today and intended on watching the first few songs on DVD. 2 1/2 hours later, I had sat through the whole show and felt like I was back at the concert. Actually, there was one song that was better on the DVD - "I'm Down" interspersed footage from both the Beatles at Shea and McCartney at Citi Field. The DVD must have combined the three nights because Billy Joel is on the DVD (and he only performed the first night) but there are no crowd scenes with umbrellas (it rained during the middle part of the first night). Paul was greatly moved by being back at the site of the historic Shea concert and it shows in his performance. Definitely recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Iconic And Ageless MACCA Flourishes In The Big Apple !! November 17, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Somehow at age 67 the iconic and tireless Paul McCartney can still perform long concerts with his incredible voice intact and his energy level remaining frenetic. It's the rockers on this CD that are utterly captivating. The version of "Day Tripper" is scorching. The intense "I've Got A Feeling" sounds timeless. "Helter Skelter" is sheer psychedelia. "I'm Down" is still a seminal Beatles' classic. "Only Mama Knows" is a riveting gem from "Memory Almost Full." The cosmic "Highway" and "Sing The Changes" are two of the greatest songs from MACCA'S last Fireman CD, the brilliant "Electric Arguments". "Mrs. Vanderbilt" is a welcome live song from Paul's vintage Wings era.

There are also many high quality songs that MACCA has been performing live for years. "Jet" and "Live And Let Die" are sterling and explosive. "Get Back", "Lady Madonna" and "Back In The USSR" are great audience pleasers because they fervently rock. A major highlight is Paul performing John and his own vocals on the poignant "A Day In The Life." The fantastic concert aptly closes with "Sgt. Peppers" and "The End."

This CD proves that Paul McCartney is one of the paramount live concert performers in musical history. His vocals and instrumental virtuosity are amazing. MACCA resonates live and on stage.

Note: It's imperative for all McCartney fans to have The Fireman "Electric Arguments" CD. It's arguably his finest CD and it's probably the one that Lennon would appreciate the most.

Format:Audio CD
Paul McCartney's released many live CDs and DVDs but this is the best of the bunch he's released. Here's why; 1)We get the whole concert 2)the performances are dazzling (and Paul's in exceptiona voice--no Autotune or any processing device was used to augment Paul's voice)including a brief detour into a cover of a Jimi Hendrix tune (he shares a story about Hendrix having learned "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" even though it had just been released. Hendrix's guitar went out of tune and he asked if Eric Clapton was in the audience so he could tune it for him). 3)We get a healthy dose of Beatles songs (including "A Day in the Life" melded with Lennon's "Give Peace A Chance"), Wings tunes, Fireman and McCartney solo hits. 4)We get to hear the concert and see it on a bonus DVD AND Best Buy has a 2 CD/2DVD set (available only as an import here)in a nice book with McCartney's "David Letterman" live roof top show.

Sound-I'd give it a B for the CDs--they sound good not too loud, compressed or maximized could they sound better? Sure but for a contemporary CD this sounds good. The sound on the DVDs I'd give an A--they sound exceptionally clear, crisp with nice detail. The picture on the DVDs (I watched it upscaled on my Blu-ray player)looks exceptional as well. Would I have liked a Blu-ray option for this? Sure but the DVD looks just fine upscaled with nice detail although you'll notice it isn't quite as sharp as a Blu-ray.

Is Macca using Autotune here? The engineer that worked with Geoff Emerick on this Paul Hicks has indicated that there is no Autotune used on the album. Could there be a variation being used here? Possibly but this is still to me the best of his concerts on video.

The Letterman Show is terrific.

best macca dvd
I'd go with this new one Good Evening New York. The concert film and sound are fantastic. Set list is awesome. You get 2 CD's and a DVD for the price of a normal CD. I have all of his and this is definately one of the best if not the best.
