Paul's music was bigger than the Beatles' repertoire
17 May 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This concert video is actually a compilation of several dates in a worldwide tour. It is quite well-done despite the odd sensation of suddenly seeing several of the band members (the drummer and keyboard players, for example) in different clothing or hairstyles. The fan reactions are at times a little odd but in large part quite amusing and endearing. My wife and I rented this film following the ABC network's broadcast of "WingSpan" last Friday (May 11, 2001)which was itself a tribute to the band Wings. Although the group was a 1970's heir of much of what was the rock 'n roll classic tradition of the British sensation, the Beatles, Paul McCartney and WINGS for an entire decade brought a lot of fun and joy to music lovers of my generation. The Richard Lester rockumentary wasn't quite the A-ticket ride that his comedic project titled "Hard Day's Night" was several decades before. Still, it is well worth viewing because the music of "Lennon and McCartney" was exceeded by the creative work of McCartney himself! The musical genius that Paul has shared with the pop music world is far greater than just some follow-ups to the Beatles. He has been a great example of a human being, admitting to mistakes but taking musical chances that other 60's "survivors" haven't done as successfully. He is a person well worth watching and a brave widower. All of us who remember the Beatles fondly can appreciate what his music still has to communicate!
