Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Recorded live in London as part of MTV's Unplugged series, this acoustic set features a diverse range of songs, most--but not all--penned by McCartney. The session is opened by a great version of "Be-Bop-A-Lula"--made famous in 1954 by Gene Vincent--and closely followed by "I Lost My Little Girl", the first song written by McCartney at the tender age of 14. A precursor to McCartney's Run Devil Run collection, Unplugged also features the first public performances of "We Can Work It Out", "And I Love Her" and "She's A Woman". All the tracks feature McCartney on lead vocals and acoustic guitar except "Aint No Sunshine" when he takes to the drums and hands the vocals over to Hamish Stuart. --Carina Trimingham

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect jam session 11 April 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It may look like a collection of old Beatles tunes you already have on LP or CD, but what lifts this recordig out of the ordinary is its clever use of balanced acoustic instrumentation in the hands of a set of consumate professional players who know how to put tigether an entertaining hour of music.
Unlike many 'unplugged' albums, this one uses no electric instruments and the only things plugged in are the microphones that pick up the singers and instruments for the recording. Instrument balance is achieved entirely naturally - for example, Paul uses a loud 12 string guitar to stand out from the combo and a quieter 6 string to blend in to the ensemble.
The band fills out guitar and percussion parts with an accordion that fills in for all the places where original Beatles recordings used part or whole of a 30-piece orchestra. In fact, the early B side We Can Work It Out did feature such an instrument. On this programme it is used to good effect, sometimes providing a ground to the melody and at other times increasing in power to take a leading role.
Like the current solo album, this one includes Paul's solo rerndition of Blackbird, quite a tricky number to play and sing at the same time on our own on stage.
I think the surprise tempo change in Blue Moon of Kentucky sets the tempo for the session and the closing rendition of Junk from Paul's first post-Beatles solo LP rounds off an enjoyable performance that you will want to reprise often.
It's just like having an evening at a small, intimate night club in your own home. what a pity it only lasts just over an hour.

4.0 out of 5 stars McCartney something for us all 3 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Paul takes us through his career covering Beatles, Wings, solo and covers.
The C.D is relaxed and he is fine voice throughout the performance.
Plus there are plenty of tracks on the C.D. and the audience are really enjoying the concert.

By A. Sweeney TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This was one of my first Paul McCartney purchases, bought on the "wonderful" cassette format on the day it was released when I was a mere sixteen years old. Directly after I bought it, I went on holiday to a friend's house in Scotland and played it for the first time on their very good stereo system. The first thing I was struck by was just how warm it was, both in terms of sound and presentation; it was like having Paul and the band in the same room as me. It was recorded strictly "unplugged", in the respect that none of the instruments were plugged into an amplifier, unlike many other bands who appeared on the MTV Unplugged series. For Paul's performance, microphones were placed in close proximity to each acoustic instrument, providing a beautifully sounding mix. Also, McCartney and his band seemed to be completely at ease with each other, making funny little between-song comments and generally seeming to have a great time which, seeing as they'd just come off a massive world tour together (with the exception of drummer Blair Cunningham who had newly joined the McCartney band and went on to record and tour "Off The Ground" with him) was a good sign for a man who, since the Beatles, had got through quite a lot of band-mates and collaborators.

This album is a testament to just how good the Paul McCartney band was at this moment in time. Wix's piano solos are both impressive and fun, Hamish Stuart's soulful vocals complimented Paul's wonderfully and Robbie McIntosh's guitar work is impeccable. There is a really great mix of Beatles, solo songs and covers, with Paul revisiting a few tracks from his 1970 solo debut, "McCartney" ("Every Night", "Junk" and "That Would Be Something"), arranging, re-working and performing them lovingly - the harmonies on "Every Night" are exquisite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is it really that old?? 23 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
Bought the cd in '92. Went looking for the dvd tonight, but it cant be had! This is my favourite album of all time. In fairness, I am a Beatle nut, and a huge Macca fan, but he outperformed himself with this one.
It is absolutley brilliant. Amazing how the band can create such a sound from purely acoustic instruments.
Yep, you may think that this is just another Macca album, rehashing some of his favourite songs. Maybe it is, who cares? I don't, I just wish he would still release something on a par with this, as against the usual self indulgent tripe he's come out with over the last couple of years.
Maybe he's afraid of releasing a quality album and all of his royalties going to Mucca!!!!!
