But who came up with the bright idea of not labeling the discs? Oh wait, they are labeled, you just have to hold them up to a bright light and you can see the dull writing that's in the same color as the cd/dvd. Just brilliant.
Fantastic performer, fantastic concert, ridiculous packaging where the discs aren't labeled such that you can easily identify them. Minus one star for that.
The DVD of the concert is outstanding. I have never been to one of his concerts and probably will never be able to attend. This is almost as good as being there. The music, as always, was outstanding. He loves his fans and they love him right back. The energy at one of his concerts must be phenomenal. This captures that.
And to have the CDs of the music – heaven!!
I love this DVD/CD set!
I was fortunate enough to have a mother born one day after McCartney and one who made it known year after year. We had 2 Beatles and 1 PM LP around the house so I had a fairly decent knowlege of the music. However of the Brits, my personal favorite were: The Stones and DC5 (Dave Cark 5). Over the years I got the "beat down" for not recognizing The Beatles or PM's contribution to music. To me they were just another British band that got lucky and PM was just another oldie star that didn't know when to quit.
Long story short, I ordered this particular item out of renewed interest in Paul. Have never been a real fan of LIVE concerts. The last one seen having been The Concert for New York City. This one I thought would just be a few old songs from his Beatle era and from his solo career and that would be it.
This concert really opened my mind: It brought out things musically in my mind that I didn't know were there. If you are a fan you know the music but there is so much more than just the songs.
I learned that PM is a true entertainer. Not just a studio musician. He performed more than 30 songs without an intermission and all of them were top notch! Just like the originals. Voice still in shape.
PM's influence by the Beach Boys and specifically Brian Wilson and his "melodic bass lines". It got me to thinking about each song performed. They became more than just oldies. It was an education process that I went through listening to Paul and each song and things that he did. However minor. Like "Something": A sweet song to me; but too slow for my taste. He took that song and played the intro on Ukulele speeding it up by playing within the melody. Something that Parker did many decades before he was born. I heard this with my musical ear and it truly intrigued me!!!! Then the rest of the orchestra came in and played it as it was originally. You have to have some musical training to understand what I am trying to say (pouring a quart into a pint).
My favorites: I'm Down, Long and Winding Road, My Love and Get Back. Hoped to hear: She's a Woman or Long Tall Sally.
I could go on and on but I just thought i'd check in and say how much I enjoyed this concert. I played it on my computer and it was just like being there! Packaging was great: 3 disks. The first two were the audio cd's and the third the dvd. I thought the dvd better. Once you view it the dvd's the cd's were just music from the concert.
Paul really taught me that he and his fellow Beatles are everything and more. I have a "renewed" interest in them and have ordered the Apple box set and will review that in the future! I HIGHLY recommend!!!
Thank you for reading!
I was quite taken by Paul's magic onstage. No wonder The Beatles made it so big. He really hasn't lost a thing over the years. He still rocks! He sang many of the songs that we all know and love. "Live and Let Die" was outstanding, complete w/ a fireworks show. Billy Joel also came on as a special guest during one of the songs.
The camera shots and the sound was great. If there was one thing I didn't care for, and I have to stretch to find something, it would be the inserts of the original Beatles show. I felt that broke up the flow of the present show. There was not much of it so I didn't find it too distracting.
I would have to say it is a must for fans. For anyone who just remotely likes his music, they too will enjoy his stellar performance. This is one not to pass up.
The 2 cd's are equally brilliant. Excellent live recording!!!! What a show!

I buy these years a lot of live recordings or acoustic projects with the old dinosaurs of rock. Because the modern recording techniques together with artist knowing how to perform and handle instruments and audience, can give you a feeling of being again young and alive, and sometimes even like actually being present at the concert, if played on a high end HiFi.
This recording has a beautiful setlist, and because of this, and thinking the 1976 "Wings over America", would now be outperformed by live evolution, I bought this record and some more of PMCs live recordings.
But here is a flat not 3D sound, and no longer versions, no extraordinary solos, no good contact or dialougue with audience, I actually sometimes prefer the studio versions, as this recording seems to be like a rapid live version of the original recordings, with nearly no creative updates, or uptempo or downtempo longer or shorter versions with unexpected solos and fine audience contact. I actually prefer the sound and the performance of studio versions and the 1976 Wings over America. Disappointed, as most bands in this class these years deliver very very fine live and acoustic takes.
This recording is a bit better than the older Tripping the Live Fantastic, so I give 3 stars, not a best in class live take.
Its a 2cd plus 1dvd set. A Day In The Life/Give Peace A Chance on cd2 is brilliant. Great sound throughout and his voice is good. Its also got many songs I love on it.
