Editorial Reviews

After 13 years producing studio albums that were no-so-favorably received by the critical establishment, ex-Beatle Paul McCartney made a remarkable return to the road in his 1989-90 Get Back world tour. The show, which also featured Paul's wife Linda, as well as a full band, showcased music from throughout McCartney's career, with a carefully selected set list comprised of just the hits. Richard Lester, who made the early Beatles' films Help! and A Hard Day's Night, came out of retirement to document the tour, in this energized concert film made up of highlights from sold-out concerts across the globe.

Format: DVD
You can't go wrong with any of Paul McCartney's live recordings. Despite what anyone says about Sir Paul's post-Beatles music, when it comes to live performance, the man always gives 100 percent. He's as hard-working a showman as anyone in rock and always holds his own against virtually every live band. The guy cares about what he does, has a great voice, is a solid innovative bassist and one heck of a pianist. I am certain that almost everyone who attended the 1989 live shows filmed for this DVD ranks it as a night they will never forget.

I wish this DVD were longer, because it focuses almost exclusively on Paul's Beatles hits. I know that many people love hearing McCartney sing the Beatles Greatest Hits, but I'd like to hear more of his solo and Wings material. (In concert at the time, McCartney did include a lot of post-1970 material, but little of it is here save for the beautiful 'Put it There,' 'Live and Let Die,' and 'Coming Up.')

My major problem with the DVD comes from Richard Lester's decision to intercut newsfootage throughout many of the songs. 'The Long and Winding Road' is all but ruined by Vietnam imagery, for example, and by the time I reached the end of the DVD I was uncomfortably reminded of the movie version of 'Beatlemania' which used similar tricks. McCartney is the real deal and doesn't need such trickery. And, yes, that's the same Richard Lester who used to direct great popcorn flicks like 'Superman II' and 'The Three Musketeers' not to mention the Beatles own 'Hard Day's Night.' I've no idea why McCartney allowed Lester to ruin sections of this film with his heavy-handed social commentary.

I'm still giving this 4 stars if only because we get the joy of Paul McCartney rediscovering himself in front of a worldwide audience.

No, not maybe. I am amazed! This collection of 20 songs from his '89-90 world tour is the ultimate! He rocks, plain and simple, from the ever-great "Band On The Run" to the rockous early day remembrance "I Saw Her Standing There." The new material has some of my favorites from Paul like "Put It There" and "Rough Ride." It also includes awesome b/w & some color footage of the 60s and the Beatles! I've said too much already, but this is the best available McCartney video.

Format: DVD
McCartney is a great showman and musician and this DVD perfectly illustrates my point. A McCartney show is a healthy blend of material from the Beatles, Wings and his ever growing solo cannon of albums. This 1989 tour, Paul's first in over a 10 year period, was a reintroduction of sorts to his live prowess. The performances and production are first rate as is his band and his own playing. The one ingredient missing is the high register of his once mighty vocal ability. Amazingly his last tour for Driving Rain found his abilities fully restored. Perhaps he is taking better care of his pipes these days. For whatever the case may be, it's good to have Paul these days performing new live versions of his classic catalog. With the release of this Get Back DVD it is now possible to have documents of his major tours on home video, except for ONE. Yes, the highly entertaining ROCK SHOW must now be considered for release! Rock Show is a concert film from the legendary Wings Over America tour from 1976 and it is long overdue for the DVD treatment.

I bought the VHS version a couple of years ago, now that I got the DVD version I think it is better in video and sound quality than the tape, but either way, it is an excellent concert video that shows how the good music is. Of course there are songs mising (Silly love songs, let'hem in and so on) but the included ones are enough to get you rocking and singing. I like specially the way "Can't buy me love" ends and "Coming Up" (complete lenght version) starts with a terrific drumer intro, This DVD is by far worth the price. Enjoy!

Wow, I have never seen such an energetic concert before. Everyone's having fun out there, and all his band mates are perfect in what they do. It's a shame he didn't reunite with them. They only problem is that they put footage of different arenas in one song. Like in Get Back, you first see Linda with this casual collared red shirt, and then it changes to this light blue jacket. Same goes with the drummer and Hamish. But the performance out-weighs that fault. This concert is like a dream Paul McCartney concert. I mean, Back in the US and Red Square was good, but the musicians weren't as talented as his old band. And back then Paul was younger, thus he had a lot more energy. I recommend this to any Beatles, Paul McCartney, or classic rock fan. This is a great concert film, maybe the best.

I almost did not buy this DVD because of some poor reviews related to a Paul's tired voice. But, I am glad I ordered this video. Only the first few songs have his vocals off a bit, but once warmed up everything is fine. (If you watch the new Russia release, his voice is a bit off on a few of the first songs too).

The DVD is in full screen, with only slight stretching noticed on a widescreen TV, but is not distracting. The sound is in stereo that sounds good and with my 6.1 decoder on the music flows from all speakers and sounds great.

The song tracks are wonderful, with added video and stock footage from the FAB FOUR days. - I wonder if Yoko Ono gets a piece of the profits..... Overall, this is a great show!!!!

This DVD is highly recommended.
