Product Description

This 4-disc (2 CD + 2 DVD) limited deluxe edition of Good Evening New York City features dazzling performances of Beatles, Wings and solo classics from Citi Field, formerly Shea Stadium, historic site of The Beatles’ Landmark 1965 Concert. As documented on Good Evening New York City, "I'm Down" from the Beatles 1965 set list was revived for the Citi Field shows. Other highlights  include faithful takes on Beatles classics "Drive My Car", "Got To Get You Into My Life", "The Long And Winding Road", "Blackbird", "Eleanor Rigby", "Back In The USSR", "Paperback Writer", "Let It Be", "Hey Jude", "Helter Skelter" and more, plus "Something" rendered on a ukulele given to Paul by George Harrison, and a tribute to John Lennon in the form of a medley of "A Day In The Life" and "Give Peace A Chance". Wings-era tracks include "Band On The Run", "My Love", "Let Me Roll It" and "Live And Let Die". The McCartney solo material ranges from "Here Today" to the upbeat "Flaming Pie" and "Dance Tonight", to a pair of numbers from Electric Arguments, the 2008 album released under the alias of The Firemen.

The concert footage featured on Good Evening New York City edition features concert footage directed by Paul Becher, who has overseen live visuals for McCartney for some 200 performances and counting. The 33-song 2 hour 40 minute performances were shot in High Definition using 15 cameras and digital footage incorporated from 75 Flipcams handed out to fans over the course of the three night stand. The audio mix, in both stereo and 5.1, was handled by longtime McCartney engineer Paul Hicks, whose credits include the recent Beatles remasters, The Beatles Anthology, Let It Be... Naked, and two Grammy awards for his mixing work on the Beatles' Love album.

Also featured on the deluxe edition is expanded packaging and a bonus DVD including McCartney's headline-making performance on the Ed Sullivan Theater Marquee (including bonus numbers not aired on the Late Show with David Letterman broadcast).

I bought this on the strength of reviews and the excellent price for this package - can't go wrong if it's "cr*p but cheap"! Anyway, I won't go over the song list or the band line up or suchlike, but only say that I watched this on receipt in anticipation of nothing. As the DVD progressed I became more and more involved in the concert experience, thrilled at the selection of songs chosen from Paul's extensive repetoir, smiled in sympathetic joy at he and the band's obvious enjoyment in performing these songs to that huge audience, and felt deep satisfaction over the direction and sound quality of the recorded show.
A few days later I showed this DVD to some of my mates (after playing some of the audio tracks in the background, and being asked what was the concert soundtrack from), who ended up glued to the performance, and highly positive in their appreciation, and believe me they are a discening lot (all musicians themselves, too)!
Great fun no nonsense rock performed by top musicians, from a songlist second to none, at a great venue, for a good price, and Paul singing 'A Day In The Life' to boot. A worthwhile purchase... go for it!

The great thing about a joint CD/DVD music release is that you can watch the show, then if you still haven't had enough, listen to it in your car, on your stereo system or on your iPod. It works better with some releases but for Good Evening New York City, it's impeccable, with each of the 30+ songs being performed to perfection by Paul and his exceptional band. You can expect a great collection of performances on any live show by Sir Paul, but this one in particular is truly spectacular. All the songs are in there that you'll need; a great mix of Beatles classics along with solo work, Wings and The Fireman material.

The show begins with "Drive My Car", immediately getting you hooked, followed by the Band On The Run classic "Jet", and it's on from there. Though the first half is mostly of non-Beatles songs and arguably lesser known songs to certain fans, they are all still great songs performed brilliantly that keep you watching in awe regardless. An outstanding revival of "Got To Get You Into My Life", showing how the man can still sing just as great years on, followed by "Let Me Roll It" confirms you're in for a great show. At the end of the first CD and towards the middle of the show on the DVD, "Band On The Run" is played before Paul delves into his Beatles classics, including "Back In The U.S.S.R.", "Paperback Writer" and "Hey Jude", as well as Paul's tribute to his former bandmate George Harrison with "Something", and his tribute to John Lennon with "A Day In The Life"/"Give Peace A Chance".

Format: Audio CD
"Good Evening New York City" documents Paul's three phenomenally successful live shows at New York's Citi Field in July 2009 on two CDs and one DVD. Now, I'm going to lay my cards on the table. I'm a huge Paul McCartney fan and own pretty much everything he has officially released, so I'm looking at this release from the eyes of someone who is very familiar with past live albums and also someone who has issues with the lack of variety in Macca's set-lists. However, for someone like me, there are live versions of "Highway" and "Sing The Changes" from his recent "Fireman" album, plus never released live tracks such as "Mrs. Vandebilt", "A Day In The Life/Give Peace A Chance", "I'm Down" and "Daytripper", enough to make me want to buy this, regardless of whether I would have bought it for my collection anyway.

Here's the good news - it's good. Very good, in fact. Paul's current live band is arguably the best he has ever worked with. Although they always bring their top game to the stage, they don't treat the Beatles material like a sacred cow. Abe isn't afraid to use some different drum fills or improvised beats during the songs and Rusty doesn't shy away from varying the guitar solos either - and this is a very good thing, it removes the predictability from the songs most of us all know and love and breathes new life into them. Paul is also in fine voice throughout and you'd struggle to believe that the man was approaching 70, given some of the notes he hits (check out the end of "My Love"). The charisma of the man just glows from the speakers and, although this may surprise the casual fans, it is the more recent material which particularly shines during this set, as opposed to the tried and tested Beatles songs... not that they don't sound great - they really do!

This set is every bit as good as the 5 previous reviews tell you, and then some.
I have been a Beatles fan and a Macca fan since My Bonnie.
I was there on the Saturday night at Citifield. I waited almost 50 years to see him and it was worth every penny, and more.
My caveat is that despite this fab set being issued with a DVD region code of 0, and being sold by Amazon EU, the DVD's are in NTSC format. Luckily my DVD player is convertible so I could watch the great man again tonight but I am so angry at Amazon for doing this and frutrated that I cannot find anywhere to complain to on the site.
Don't let this put you off, watch a man still at the top of his game, he is in his prime, and in better voice than ever.
