I missed the telecast of this performance on A&E in 1997 when it came out, and it finally came out on DVD! Seems like Paul has a documentary film on everything he does, but this one was the best I've seen. One section shows how he wrote the piece on a computer, without reading music. Mostly though, it shows Standing Stone as a work in progress through subsequent rehearsals, etc, and variations made "on the fly" to the piece. A great documentary fitting to a great, under-appreciated musician who, since Flowers In The Dirt, is undoubtedly a better songwriter and more varied musician then he ever was as a Beatle. Some may disagree, but Flaming Pie gets more listens than Abbey Road around my place. The video of the concert is captivating, and the camera work is fairly active so you dont fall asleep staring at one musician! All else said, this is a great DVD which is packed with alot of good material and is well worth the (price).

I've waited two years for this DVD...and it was well worth it.. an incredible experience of sight and sound. Not only do you get the Albert Hall concert but a documentary on the flip side...and i swear it looks like Steve Miller hanging out beside Paul during the recording session!
BUY IT!

In some cases, enjoyment and appreciation of a work is enhanced by increased knowledge of the work. That is certainly the case with this video. For twenty-some dollars, you get a really insightful documentary of how Standing Stone came to be, rehearsals for the big Albert Hall concert, and the concert itself.
Revelatory - that is the only word.
Plus it's kind of cool to actually have so much material on a DVD that I have to flip it over. I get that retro feeling through my bones!

I found this performance to be better than McCartney's CD. That said, the sound on the DVD could have been better; that is not to say that the quality is bad, it could have been better. The 5.1 mix is a waste, as most sound in the rear speakers is applause. I still recommend this, Paul's second outing of Classical compositions it is performed with passion that you can feel while viewing.
I am a lifetime fan of Paul's music, but also have been listening to and enjoying Classical music for about 30 years.
