The news of the re-issue has gotten me to pull out the "McCartney Years" DVD collection (2005?) which includes the Wings Over America / Rockshow concert.

Great, great, concert, and great to listen to it again through solid speakers. (The bass is fabulous, as you might expect.) Even songs I don't care for (Rockshow, Listen to What the Man Said, Jet...) sound terrific, and McCartney himself is a sight to behold.

I don't know how much better the re-issue will be; I'm guessing it'll include the entire concert

According to Amazon, it is the complete concert - looking forward to getting this in June!! It is also remixed in 5.1 surround - woo-hoo!!paul-mccartney

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

It's odd how most of us have trouble finding similarly hardcore Beatle fans in our areas, isn't it? You know they're out there, but they're hard to find.

I know two, and I watched the Magical Mystery Tour DVD with one, and the other was going to see James McCartney with me, but she had a personal emergency. I might be able to get someone to see Rockshow with me, but I'll go regardless.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

I'll sky+ it and add it to my collection of Beatle shows taped off the tv and stored on the box. So far i have 'Imagine... Lennon: The New York Years', 'The Beatles: Their First US Visit', 'George Harrison: Living In The Material World', and 'Arena: The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour' which consists of a documentary on the TV Special and the full film. Those are the ones ive kept.a-hard-days-night-john-1

Here's "Blackbird".  I haven't listened to the album in years, but I certainly don't remember it sounding this clean.  As much as I'm usually not a huge fan of live albums, this might be too good to pass up.

E is for 'Ergent'.

Sounds amazing, just beautiful. Its always a delight to listen to Paul singing Blackbird or anything on acoustic solo.
