Paul McCartney : Good Evening New York City Deluxe Edition 2 CD 2 DVD 2010 16:9 DTS 5.1


Deluxe Edition 4-disc [2CD/2DVD] (NTSC/Region 1) set - As the inaugural musical event at Citi Field, the site of the former Shea Stadium, these July 2009 shows held special significance not only for McCartney but for generations of his fans. The shows were performed on the same hallowed ground that The Beatles, in 1965, played the 34-minute show that would set the precedent for the modern day stadium rock show. This 4-disc set comprises a 33-track 2-CD set with audio, in both stereo and 5.1; a DVD featuring footage directed by Paul Becher, with highlights of the gigs including 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 ukulele gifted to Paul by George Harrison, and a tribute to John Lennon in the form of a medley of 'A Day In The Life' & 'Give Peace A Chance'. Wings-era chestnuts include 'Band On The Run', 'My Love', 'Let Me Roll It' and the pyrotechnic tour-de-force of 'Live And Let Die', while timeless 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 Fireman; plus a Bonus DVD containing footage of Paul's traffic-stopping, headline-making July 15th performance on the Ed Sullivan Theater marquee, and an audience documentary!). 

Unlike its 2002 predecessor Back in the U.S., Good Evening New York City doesn t cherrypick highlights from a tour, it commemorates a specific event: the inauguration of Citi Field -- the replacement for the now-defunct Shea Stadium, where the Beatles played a legendary show in 1965 -- in the summer of 2009. The circumstances may be different -- different enough to lead to a Billy Joel cameo on I Saw Her Standing There," the piano man returning a favor from Paul, who played at Billy s Shea-closing shows in 2008 -- and McCartney might have two strong albums of new material to draw upon, but as an album, Good Evening New York City plays a lot like Back in the U.S. with a whopping 17 of its 35 tracks shared between the two titles. More importantly, the vibe is the same, with Macca delivering an expertly balanced and sequenced set with all the skill of the old pro that he is. Apart from the inclusion of Mrs. Vanderbilt and I m Down, there are no surprises, either in song selection or performance, but no surprises doesn t mean no satisfaction, and this is plenty entertaining.
