    New McCartney DVD Set for Release ‘THE McCARTNEY YEARS’ LOS ANGELES, CA — (MARKET WIRE) — On November 13th, 2007, ‘THE McCARTNEY YEARS’ will hit the stores from MPL/Rhino Entertainment. This first time ever DVD includes the definitive visual collection of Paul McCartney’s amazing career featuring solo music videos, career-spanning live performances, personal commentary by Paul McCartney and exclusive footage that tracks his incredible musical journey as never before.

    Spanning four decades, ‘THE McCARTNEY YEARS’ is a three volume DVD collection, featuring some of the world’s best-loved music that has become the soundtrack to all our lives.

    VOLUME ONE and VOLUME TWO contain the definitive collection of McCartney music videos. Starting in the 1970s with Paul McCartney’s first solo single “Maybe I’m Amazed,” the DVD includes the Wings promo video for “Band On The Run” as well as hits from the 1980s such as “Say Say Say,” and the 1990s with “The World Tonight.” It finishes with 2005′s “Fine Line.” The films can be viewed either in chronological order or as play-lists that have been personally arranged by Paul featuring his exclusive voiceover commentaries.

    VOLUME THREE includes live performances taken from three classic McCartney live shows; “ROCKSHOW” filmed on Wings’ 1976 World Tour, new edits of Paul’s seminal “UNPLUGGED” in 1991 and Paul’s now legendary headlining performance at 2004′s GLASTONBURY Festival.

    ‘THE McCARTNEY YEARS’ is also packed with bonus features and extra never before seen footage and performances, including “Let It Be” from LIVE AID, archive interviews with Melvyn Bragg and Michael Parkinson, alternative versions of music videos and the full-length 2005 documentary “Creating Chaos at Abbey Road.” Paul has recorded exclusive commentary and personal introductions for each promo video and each live concert.

    This collection has been meticulously restored and all films polished, re-graded and given a new lease on life in Widescreen format with re-mastered stereo audio and for the first time the original recordings re-mixed into 5.1 surround sound. ‘THE McCARTNEY YEARS’ includes over 40 promo videos and over two hours of live performances.

    Mike S “mike” (Alpharetta, GA United States) –

    This review is from: The McCartney Years (DVD)

    A good effort. More than I expected. But why is it incomplete? Why are some videos missing and instead we get incomplete concert “teasers”? Rockshow and Unplugged should simply be released on their own. Period. It’s not that hard- they already exist. I don’t get it. Instead of this silly third disc, we could have had missing videos, such as:

    1. Mary Had a little Lamb
    2. Jet
    3. Listen to what the man said
    4. Letting Go
    5. Let `em in
    6. Getting Closer
    7. Spin it on
    8. Old Siam sir
    9. Arrow though me
    10. Only Love remains
    11. Stranglehold
    12. Ou est le soleil?
    13. Party Party
    14. We got married
    15. Get out of my way
    16. Young Boy
    17. The World Tonight

    And while I’m at it, just present them all in chronological order. Doesn’t that make more sense? But then again when have Paul’s videos or concert releases ever made much sense? I might even be missing some more recent videos as well. And as far as bonuses, how about including the TV special from ’73 or the unreleased film One hand clapping? Anyway, I know, I know, we should be grateful for anything they toss to us fans, but I couldn’t resist pointing out how they messed things up AGAIN!

    Nearly a third of the original picture lost…, November 16, 2007

    This review is from: The McCartney Years (DVD)

    I wasn’t going to write a review because M.Chesman added one which perfectly summed up my thoughts on this DVD a few days ago. However, as others seem to rate this DVD highly I’ve felt compelled to in order to add my 1-star rating. This could and should have been so good – a splendid collection of videos from McCartney’s post Beatles career and on the face of it, it is. The BIG issue with the whole thing though is the loss of nearly a third of the original image area of the “restored” videos and films. Why they thought that cropping everything to widescreen was a good idea I’ll never know. The Directors’ of the 4:3 originals must be gritting their teeth to see heads chopped off, tight framing and other areas of the original picture lost in the conversion process. Then, as if to rub salt in the wound, two videos in the extras section (they obviously escaped the “restoration” work) “London Town” and “So Bad” have been left as original 4:3 and consequently look a whole lot better! If you’re not sure what I’m talking about please check the customer images. It’s extremely disappointing that this decision was taken. It makes me thankful that the Beatles’ Anthology was produced in the mid 90s before everyone got “widescreen fever” otherwise all the archive footage in that would be chopped down.
