Editorial Reviews

Live Kisses captures Paul McCartney performing the songs from his acclaimed Kisses On The Bottom album live from the legendary Capitol Studios in Hollywood. Paul is joined by a virtuoso group of musicians led by Diana Krall on the piano in these sparkling renditions of classic songs from the American songbook and the wonderful new song My Valentine. In between the songs there are interview clips with Paul, Diana Krall and many of those involved in the recording of the Kisses On The Bottom album. This is an intimate and charming performance which adds yet another facet to Paul McCartney's already broad canvas of talents. / Package includes spectacular concert footage with a cast of top-flight musicians, exclusive promo videos directed by Paul himself, behind the scenes interviews and a 40 page hardback book featuring an extensive collection of photographs from the event and rehearsals / Bonus Features:

5.0 out of 5 stars A marvelous surprise for those who don't like KOTB September 10, 2012
Format:DVD
I saw the abbreviated version of LIVE KISSES on PBS. I hadn't expected to enjoy it as I didn't care much for KISSES ON THE BOTTOM, thinking Paul's voice was weak and any real energy lacking.

Much to my surprise and delight, LIVE KISSES is a highly enjoyable experience. Paul's voice sounds a lot stronger in these sessions, and he's clearly enjoying himself, as are the band. Their performance is also much more energetic and loose. I thought the bass player, John Clayton, excelled in particular.

The interviews between songs were interesting and delved into the history of Capitol Studios, as well as Paul's love for the material. It really came through in his performance. I'm certain the unedited version on DVD will be even better. The bonus material--the videos of "My Valentine" and the interview about the making of the album--are icing on the cake.

Highly recommended for all McCartney fans, as well as lovers of standards.

5.0 out of 5 stars 70 Year Old Sir Paul Still Giving His Fans Gifts Of Love September 16, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
On February 9, 2012, 69 year old Sir Paul McCartney filmed and recorded LIVE KISSES at Capitol Records Studios in Hollywood- a collaboration of some of the most beautiful old American classic love and hope songs that Sir Paul recalls from his childhood family gatherings. I don't know if this is a co-incidence or not, but these heavenly songs were recorded and filmed exactly 48 years since The Beatles first U.S. appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964. It's a wonderful co-incidence as these songs are just as wonderful to listen to as those early Beatles hits.

Of all the Beatles, for me, Paul was totally and completely about love, and this latest beautiful achievement of Paul's is a testament to that. I always felt that John was more political, George spiritual, Ringo very rhythmic and Paul was pure love. I know Paul's voice at 70 is not as powerful as when he had to out scream thousands of fans back in the sixties, but his voice is softly powerful, as it should be for these beautiful classic songs. His voice is so beautifully strong, you wish he would have recorded about a hundred more of these old favorites for this dvd. I am a child of the fifties, but my mother had a piano and sang many of these 1920's and 1930's songs to me, that she learned as a child, so I know many of these lyrics and can't help but sing along.

Live Kisses is produced by grammy winning producer Tommy LiPuma, conducted by Alan Broadbent, with the talents of Al Schmitt in the control room, Diana Krall at the piano, John Clayton, Karriem Riggins, John Pizzarelli on guitar, Anthony Wilson and Mike Mainieri. Paul strictly sings on this dvd and the harmony he creates with his drummer Abe Laboriel Jr. on three of the songs including I'm Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter, is simply pure magic.

Format:DVD
As a fan of the Great American Songbook, I was curious to hear Paul McCartney's "Kisses on The Bottom" CD when it was released last year. I though he did a credible job in the covers though I thought his voice was a bit off. Still, I felt, he gave new exposure to songs I still play on my 78rpm records. I missed the live stream and the PBS special of this "studio concert" version of the songs from the album so the DVD package was my first viewing.

To make things clear, though the 75-minute centerpiece of this DVD was taped in the studio, with Paul wearing headphones, this was not the actual recording session for the KOTB CD. This was a re-creation with most of the original musicians. While Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder were on the CD, they are not performing here, though there are interview clips.

The package gives a running time of 127 minutes but be aware that this includes the FIVE versions of the "My Valentine" music video as well as two promo videos for KOTB. There is a 15 minute interview with McCartney and Producer Tommy LiPuma by music journalist Robert Hilburn , from which many sections were included in the 75-minute core program.

I found that WATCHING McCartney sing the songs often covered the age in his voice. Honestly, at 70 his voice is showing its age.

I'll defer to my fellow reviewer, Tante Maren, for the details of the program - though he/she had not seen the DVD at the time of his/her review since it wasn't released until two months later. The packaging should also be mentioned.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Vintage Clothes December 10, 2012
By Bill
Format:DVD
Let's get a couple of things out of the way first: If you're the kind of music fan who would prefer Paul McCartney to just keep belting out Get Back and Band on the Run for the rest of his life, then keep walking - there's nothing for you here. Likewise, if you don't think it ever got better than Bing Crosby or Frank Sinatra, then you're going to find little to love in this show. If your tastes allow for some exploration, then read on.

Doing and album and/or show of old standards has become almost as much a rock cliché as stint in rehab. Over the years, the quality of such albums has ranged from the sublime (Harry Nilsson's A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night) to the ridiculous (Robbie Williams' Swing When You're Winning). The fact is that any idiot can buy a hat, hire a decent arranger and sing into a microphone once used by Sinatra. So why should we follow Macca down this well-worn path?

Well, there are a few good reasons. Firstly, McCartney is old enough to remember some of these songs when they were current, and to have sung them around the family Johanna so his fondness for these tunes has not been confected from a lot of received wisdom. He has also revealed an ongoing fondness for the style since the early days of the Beatles, from covers of 'Til There Was You and A Taste of Honey, through When I'm Sixty Four and Honey Pie to Warm and Beautiful and Baby's Request with Wings, he's already done plenty of dabbling in the genre.
