Product Description

Spanning four decades, this collection covers McCartney's solo career from 1970 to 2005. Volumes 1 and 2 contain the definitive collection of McCartney music videos. Starting in the 1970s with Paul McCartney's first solo single 'Maybe I'm Amazed', it also includes the Wings promo video for 'Band on the Run' as well as hits from the 1980s such as 'Say Say Say', and the 1990s with 'Biker Like an Icon'. It finishes with 2005's 'Fine Line'. Volume 3 includes live performances taken from three live shows; 'Rockshow' (filmed on Wings' 1976 World Tour), new edits of the 'Unplugged' show in 1991, and his headlining performance at 2004's Glastonbury Festival. All in all, this collection includes over 40 promo videos and over two hours of live performances.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great DVD but not for the completist! 24 Nov 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Its great to have this DVD. I am a massive McCartney fan and I love seeing these promo videos, many I have not seen before. For the money it does seem good value I have to say and the sound quality and picture is amazing, especially on the 5.1 setting.
The live footage is great so is the bouns footage. Any McCartney fan would enjoy this DVD.
My only criticism is that I had hoped it would be complete. True the widescreen criticism already mentioned by previous reviewers is a little bit of a shame, and I can see their point, but to me the biggest dissapointment was that it is not complete. I hoped it would be all of Pauls promo videos but lots are missing. Where is "Stranglehold", "Again, and Again and Again", "Spin it on", "Wildlife", "The World Tonight", "Young Boy", I could go on and on. Also Rockshow and Unplugged sets from disc 3 are only highlights, I thought they would be the entire shows, maybe I was expecting too much, but I would have gladly paid a little more and had it all complete.
But all in all I am pleased they have done this DVD set, and it reminds you just what great music Macca has given us and continues to give us.
Keep it up!
Paul

3.0 out of 5 stars Great songs, but why the fake widescreen? 9 Mar 2008
By Mr. D. K. Smith TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
It doesn't have every video, but there's a good selection. However several stars off for the fake widescreen. The majority of the videos were filmed in fullscreen and the only way to fake a widescreen picture is to crop off the top and bottom of the original picture. If you know the original videos well you will be aware how much is missing.

If you can accept this, then there's a lot to enjoy on these DVD's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Historic! 3 Jun 2008
By Martin A Hogan HALL OF FAME TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This three disc set covers over forty years of Paul McCartney and Wings with studio video, live performances and extras that you probably have never seen. All the songs have been cleaned up and most are in 5.1 surround sound. Paul also contributes valuable and interesting voice-over commentaries for much of the material, if selected.

Don't let the first disc fool you into thinking that all the videos will be the same. Some of the storylines and video may be a bit dated looking and fuzzy, but the sound is perfect. "Ebony & Ivory" is a bit saccharin for my tastes, but Mac makes up for that with great video renditions of, "Mamunia", "Maybe I'm Amazed", "Mull Of Kintyre" and of all things, "C-Moon", which sounds great.

The second disc covers videos of Paul's work in the eighties and nineties with crisper videos and great sound. There is new life breathed into, "Pipes Of Peace" and "Fine Line". It's a nice grouping of songs that were not as popular as the Wings ear, but just as creative and important. This disc also has interesting extras, including the documentary, "Creating Chaos At Abbey Road", which is not to be missed.

The third disc is much better in visual clarity and covers seven songs from the seventies with the classic "Wings" performing in fantastic form with great sound and a spectacular light show. The second `unplugged' section with studio musicians in a small theater is perfect with the amazing dexterity and clarity from an acoustic performance. Paul and band mates perform four gems here. This is followed by the concert at Glastonbury, which looked like an amazing event with Paul performing nearly a dozen songs, including great renditions of, "Let Me Roll It", "Flaming Pie", "Hey Jude" and a mournful, Yesterday".

5.0 out of 5 stars Macca's Visual Discography 9 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
This is an excellent visual history of the music of Paul McCartney from the post Beatles break up album 'McCartney' in 1970 to his 2005 'Chaos and Creation in The Backyard'.

Even though the collection is not a definitive video or performance collection it still is great value for money and contains a good variety of Macca's solo and Wings recordings.
