I saw this amazing remaster at the cinema,it's just a shame this Blu Ray release suffers from major drop outs in the audio soundrack,something that wasn't present on the cinema version.I emailed Eagle dvd about the audio problems,but they ignored the problem.It's a shame,as Rockshow is what i consider Mccartney at his best.

UPDATE - APRIL 10 2016

This is an update to the original review I did in 2013. Following some information I came across on the McCartney fans forum, I recently discovered that Eagle Rock video had now corrected the audio problems that plagued the first release,

I decided to take a chance and re order from Amazon, on the basis that it had been almost 3 years since my initial purchase, and I hoped the audio problems have been corrected,

So today I sat down to watch this new purchase, and I'm happy to report that the sound is perfect. . . and I'm so happy because Rockshow has to be Paul at his best, some would say that he peaked here, that is largely subjective, but what I will say is, his bass playing here is top notch and his vocal is like a powerhouse and now at last, the audio soundtrack has been corrected by Eagle Rock Video,

There is not much difference in the packaging to this Second edition, what I did notice though is that there is now a white box printed on the disc with a zero in it, and the cat/ref number on the spine of the blu Ray packaging is - ERBRD5189, that number is important because that shows the disc is a second edition with corrected audio,

To sum up then, Rockshow is a must for any fan because it shows Macca and wings at the top of their game an incredible concert that you must have in your collection,

Go buy it, turn the volume up and enjoy

I saw Wings many a time live. From the inception at the Hammersmith Odeon, when all they played were mostly tracks from Wildlife and Red Rose Speedway to finally at the Rainbow with Back To The Egg, et al. This was filmed during their most commercial and successful period, circa 1976. At The Speed Of Sound was the current album during this tour and overall, as far as Wings albums went, not one of their best. However with songs like Beware My Love, even that album has some very good highlights. I do recall those days and watching the Blu-ray reminded me how Denny Laine was not just someone making up the numbers. He did write the occasional song but he certainly fronted the vocals on a few here, such as Spirits Of Ancient Egypt, Picasso's Last Words, Richard Cory, Go Now and Time To Hide. Denny also used to introduce various numbers and as McCartney followers these days will know, that apart from, whoops, thumbs up and "oh yeahs", he's not really a front man at all. During the Laine and McCulloch vocals, McCartney could have a breather and when Paul did sing, the Beatle numbers were limited to just five tunes. I actually preferred those days to now, as he's become essentially a "tribute" of himself. This is a great Blu-ray and one I've waited years for. I wouldn't rush to see Paul live these days I'm afraid to say.

I am so glad to see this show on DVD, it brings back wonderful memories of my parents buying me it on video when I was a teen. The show is amazing, with Macca showing he is so much more than a Beatle. It also includes the musical talents of the late, great Jimmy McCulloch and the legend that is Denny Laine. Plus lots of beautiful footage of the much missed Linda McCartney. A must for any music fan but most definatly a must for Beatles fans...and you get to just wallow in the beauty that is Sir Paul McCartney for almost 2 glorious hours.

Saw this fantastic concert at the cinema and couldn't wait to watch again at home. However I was very dissapointed as there is an error/fault with the sound, the base keeps dropping out. My brother experienced the same problem. We researched and this is a problem with several copies but not all. My brother e-mailed the production company but has not recieved a response. I wouldn't risk buying and pissibly wasting money.

Having had the live 'Wings over America' album for years, I recently discovered this live concert on dvd from the same tour. I had to get it & wasn't disappointed. It's the whole concert filmed as though you were actually there. Full of live atmosphere, Paul McCartney & Wings ease their way through the set list. With Denny Laine & Jimmy McCulloch sharing lead vocal duties with Paul this dvd is simply spellbinding....!

Rock Show is really alive,exciting and a colorful reminder of Wings flying at their height. The guitars are clear , the bass is fluid, the drums in tempo, the brass section in time and of course Paul in Tune , Turned On and thankfully Not Dropped Out. Buy this watch it in one sitting and relive this very entertaining evening from the 1970,s. You will not be disappointed in the quality and clarity of this remastered gem.

Fantastic show, beautifully filmed in a huge arena in 1977. It took 23 years for us to watch this fantastic film from a performance of Wings Over America Tour. The shape of the box, with an absolutely beautiful booklet, is superb. Point to Eagle Vision, which has launched many shows of the 70s, from the most diverse rock legends. Is difficult to cite the positives. There are no negatives. Exciting. Buy It Now.
