This has been too too long coming, and demands to be at the top of any right-thinking person’s Christmas list.
The blurb implies it’ll be all the great man’s music vidoes, a few live performances (including stuff from the fantastic 1991 MTV Unplugged session, Live Aid, and the 2004 Glastonbury set – “Now I wanna hear the men, just the men, c’mon fellas!”), some interviews with the likes of Parky and Melvyn, some alternate edits, unseen footage and all the usual whistles and bells.
This bit’s especially intriguing: “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.”
Just what form are these playlists, sorry play-lists, going to take? Dancefloor favourites? (such as Take It Away and Goodnight Tonight) Love songs? (the likes of No More Lonely Nights and Waterfalls) Wit and whimsy? (C Moon, Coming Up) Anthemic? (Tug Of War, Pipes Of Peace) Even, whisper it, Alternative? (Give Ireland Back To The Irish)
What with one thing and another, it kind of implies to an end to this blog’s Macca Video Jukebox.
Although if the DVD fails to include Russell Harty serving tea to Paul and George Martin, maybe not.
