By Stephen Pate – Gents, Sir Paul McCartney’s double Grammy winning Live Kisses Blu-Ray will make the perfect Valentine for a Beatles fan or a special someone who likes to be romantic.
The video won two Grammys this month for “Best Surround Sound Album” and “Best Music Film.” I’ve watched this video several times over the past year and get all choked up every time. My wife says I’m a mushy guy but she loves it.
If you can’t find it in a local store or are just lazy like me, Amazon Global Priority Service will deliver by Thursday, on time for Valentine’s for $36. Live Kisses is also available as a DVD. Don’t even bother with Amazon.ca (Canada)who have a 3-week delivery.
Quantities are limited to only 12 @ Blu-Ray’s and no limit on DVD’s). I’d move on Paul McCartney: Live Kisses [Blu-ray] if you need a sure-fire addition to roses and chocolates.
Sir Paul was crooning ballads on the first album of The Beatles with “A Taste of Honey” and on the 2nd album with “Till There Was You.” He has an amazing ability to span ballads to rock. Sir Paul also wrote “Yesterday” one of the most popular songs of all time. Some critics have dissed “My Valentine” a new song he wrote last year but I find it has grown on me and is perfectly lovely.
The CD is wonderful to hear but watching Sir Paul sing and interact with musicians like Diana Krall, Eric Clapton, and Joe Walsh is pure magic. I will admit to getting goose bumps several times watching Live Kisses. It is one of the sweetest videos I own.
The video was shot in stunning black and white with 24-bit audio recording and the sound is superb. Everything is crystal clear.
I reviewed the CD last year Review : Paul McCartney Kisses on the Bottom and liked it without reservation.
