VIDEO: Preview of new McCartney DVD set

A nice preview clip of the Paul’s McCartney Years DVD set is up on youtube.  So far it looks nothing short of impressive.  The videos look cleaned-up, and the commentary that Paul provides on the set seems to be worth the price alone.

The McCartney Years – preview

In case you forgot what the set included, here’s the skinny folks.

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.

    Hi.
    This photo comes from GMRTBS.

  2. I find it confusing that from one album to the next the official name was “Paul McCartney” or “Paul and Linda McCartney”, “Wings” etc., so now we have “The McCartney Years” and no mention of Wings.
    They should have included the WINGSPAN documentary in this set since it obviously covers his entire post-Beatles career.

  3. Unfortunately there are several videos left off this collection such as the very cool “Only Love Remains” and a bunch from the Back To The Egg album and his Driving Rain CD. Who knows why…

  4. good comp but what happened to jet + another day and maybe the unrealeased film one hand clapping
