Product Description

Product Description

PAUL MCCARTNEY Back In The World Live (2003 UK 37-track double CD album featuring classic McCartney and Beatles songs performed live in the U.S and Mexico. Includes a 32-page collectors booklet picture sleeve featuring photos and notes by Paul)

Amazon.co.uk

Back in the World is a collection of Paul McCartney's performances from his 2002 world tour. Critics may quibble over the creative roller coaster that's been Sir Paul's post-Beatles solo career, but few can deny his status as one of rock's most buoyant live performers and consistent crowd pleasers. That drive to stake his claim onstage (said to be one of the factors that drove the Fabs to dissolution) energises this otherwise largely backward-looking collection; fully two-thirds of the double-disc's 35 tracks hail from the Beatles catalogue, with the rest slanted toward early solo-career standouts such as "Jet", "Maybe I'm Amazed" and "My Love". But Macca and his focused backing quartet deliver them with a punchy edge and sense of abandon that's largely MIA on previous McCartney live releases. Other than pausing for tributes to his fallen comrades ("Here Today", a solo acoustic paean to John Lennon followed by a touching, ukulele-backed nod to George Harrison with "Something"), it's largely a rollicking career retrospective from a musician whose restless drive to perform invests this collection with something more than mere nostalgia. The singer who invoked Bach at 22 may still refuse to act his age, but here that's not a bad thing at all. --Jerry McCulley

Paul McCartney's new album "Back In The World" is a real treat. For any sceptics in the vicinity, this 2-disc set is not merely a run of the mill collection of sub-standard renditions of his back catalogue. Indeed, I prefer the live renditions of certain songs on this album to their original versions recorded, in some cases, over thirty years ago (personally, I prefer the versions of "My Love" and "Coming Up" presented here). The man's voice is in stunning form - notably better than on his tour of the early 1990's, in my opinion. The recording sessions of the wonderful studio album, Driving Rain (from which several numbers are featured on this live album, including the sublime "Your Loving Flame") and his marriage to Heather Mills seem to have instilled new confidence and vitality into his performance.
McCartney's new touring band (the energetic Abe Laboriel Jnr. on the drum kit, Rusty Anderson on lead guitar, Brain Ray on bass and rhythm guitar and Paul "Wix" Wickens on keyboards of all kinds) gel effectively and each faithfully recreate the well known parts they play. All of them contribute backing vocals - on some occasions, it is difficult to distinguish their backings from the familiar Lennon & Harrison parts on the Beatles numbers. Wix on keyboards contributes some gorgeous orchestration when called upon to do so - "She's Leaving Home" being a particularly
Speaking of Beatles numbers, McCartney treats us on this show - 23 of them are given the treatment of his new band. "Getting Better" is performed for the first time ever by McCartney since it was "left on a shelf" after the 1967 opus "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" The remainder of the 36 tracks comprise standouts from his Wings and solo years.

Back In The World is one of the best live recordings ever released. Amazingly, McCartney sings and plays better then ever. Stand out tracks are Getting Better, Every Night, Carry That Weight, Something, Back In The USSR and Maybe I'm Amazed. This release is superior to the Back In The US collection because She's Leaving Home, Michelle, Let'em In and Callico Skies have been added. I was fortunate to see this tour when it came to New York's Madison Square Garden and the recording captures the mood and excitement experienced by those in attendance. McCartney's youthful band plays with a rockier edge then previous lineups and this seems to suit Paul and his material much better. Paul sounds re-vitalized, re-juvenated and I look forward to his next studio recording. Long live Paul McCartney. God Bless !!

I was fortunate to get a ticket to Sir Paul's last show of this tour in the King's Dock in Liverpool on 1st June 2003. Of course we Merseysiders got 4 hours and 8 or 9 extra songs not included on this album such as "Maggie Mae", "Two of Us", and "I've Just Seen a Face" plus "Yellow Submarine" for Ringo. Macca truly plays to his strengths on this album. If ,like me, you were not even born when the Beatles packed in touring then this was truly the next best thing (maybe even better!). Paul plays to his strengths and includes an amazing back catalogue that perhaps no other living composer can emulate. The Beatles classics are all here from All My Loving to Let it Be. Even those never played live "Eleanor Rigby", "She's Leaving Home" , "Getting Better" and "Here, There and Everywhere" sound fresh but true to the originals.
"Band on the Run" (a Wings song) was the big surprise for me as this literally made Liverpool rock and honestly got the biggest cheer of the night ! All the other solo hits are here including "Live & Let Die" , "My Love" and "Jet" plus an interesting acoustic section with Paul alone on guitar.
The Flaming Pie track "Calico Skies" also sounds much better with a full band and we are spared the dull "Mull of Kintyre" and "Ebony & Ivory" type slush that really sucks.
This album is a great retrospective of Sir Paul McCartney's highs of his career. The only criticism I would say is that they edited out all of his inbetween-song banter.
You may be a "Lennon" fan (who was the leader of the band) but McCartney was in , my opinion, the underlying force in the Beatles. So what I'm saying is that this really is a great live album by a man who will be remembered long after you and me have gone.

For those unable to get a ticket for Paul McCartney's latest sold out tour, this 36 track CD gives the listener a good feel for the energy and power of the ex-Beatle's 2003 live show. Back in the 1970's, when many like me listened to his first solo live outing, 'Wings Over America' the reluctance to include many songs from his previous and more famous band was very obvious, but 30 years on there is no such shyness about featuring the songs which succeeding generations have grown to love, with almost three-quarters of the album dedicated to his Beatles legacy.
Perhaps the death of George Harrison has made the inclusion of more Beatles songs all the more poignant, but who can complain about the selection of songs when the set list contains 'Back in the USSR', 'Michelle', 'Let It Be', 'The Fool on the Hill' and 'Michelle'? There are some surprises too, with versions of songs like 'Mother Nature's Son', 'Getting Better' and 'She's Leaving Home' not previously played live by McCartney. Despite all the debate about writing credits in recent years, songs dedicated to both John Lennon (''Here Today') and Harrison (the ukelele driven 'Something') provide a fitting tribute to both.
There are still highlights from the Wings and solo era, including three tracks from 'Band On the Run', and a superb version of my favourite solo track 'Maybe I'm Amazed'.
Given the familiarity of the material, it is the energy and impetous given by the young and largely new band employed by McCartney which really bring this album to life - there are new arrangments on some songs, and Abe Laboriel on drums is simply a revelation.
If you're a Beatles purist, then this might not be for you - but for those of us who who don't remember the sixties first time around, then this is still a reminder of that amazing legacy, reinterpreted by one of the men who created it!
