Sir Paul's live performances are actually improving as he gets older, which makes this document from his early '90s touring days arguably better than his '70s dates but not up to the level of his triumphant new millennium ... more »

Can some please tell studios how to make a concert film!?

"Here's the deal. When we buy a concert video we want to be at the concert. That is, some close ups, some long shots, and awesome surround sound. For the ultimate DVD, let the viewer choose what band member to watch with the "angle" button.We do not want quick takes, with fast cuts, and for goodness sake, no "artsy" camera work. And while you're at it, why don't you focus on the act on stage, NOT THE AUDIENCE!!This video suffers from mtv-syndrome. super fast cuts, that prevent you from seeing what's going on, and the oft-mentioned, documentary / archival grainy b&w footage. Further, whoever directed this video seemed more interested in the audience reactions than what's going on onstage."
Looking for Changes

"Yep. Looking for changes in the way Paul makes his concert videos! Ever since Paul left the Beatles in 1970, he's been giving us one great tour after another...and one bad concert film after another. First he gave us Rock Show, which was pretty darn good. Then, Get Back, which was a good effort. Next came this film, Paul is Live. Paul cuts to different performances (and sometimes different footage altogether) within the same song. Some of the footage is in color, some in black and white. Again, it cuts between the two within the same song. The music in this video is awesome. For the casual fan of McCartney, I recommend the "Paul is Live" CD. It features the same great music but without the bad video. If you're a die hard fan like I am, you'll probably enjoy this DVD."
Good concert but a badly produced video of it.

"I remember going to see this eccellent concert in 1993 and unfortunately this very badly produced video does not do it justice.
In the first song "Drive My Car" which lasts only 2 minutes and 16 seconds,the picture jumps from colour to black and white and back 38 times and shows a car on a highway another 8 times.
And that's just the first song!
Somewere in all this mess Paul is singing.
This bad producing goes on all through the twenty two song concert and ruins it for viewers.
The music is good but the video is terrible and producers Stewart J Swartz and James Clark deserve criticism for this video,the worst production job that I have ever seen.
Someone should tell them the old saying "keep it simple stupid"."
Paul still has all the charm, energy, talent, and charisma!

"Paul still stirs you with all his energy and emotions he puts into every song! I liked this video. I loved the backflashes of the Beatle-days gone by, plus some scenes from Paul's home life with his wife and kids. However, I didn't like the animal torture scenes! It was very disturbing to me, as I am an animal lover. I guess that was his intent to move you to respond to the wrong that is being done to animals today. Aside from those agonizing scenes, Paul still has all the charm, energy, talent, and charisma he has always had since his youth. I especially liked all the Beatle songs he sang. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah! He still has it! I love you Paul!"
