BACK IN THE US DVD/ BACK IN THE WORLD TV SPECIAL

(Click to buy DVD
US or UK version)

Only actual concert footage (Paul, the Band, the Stage) was considered for this review. The DVD and CD feature stuff ONLY from the DRIVING USA tour, not any from the BACK IN THE US tour (second leg), although the Back in the World CD/TV special features stuff from the DRIVING MEXICO and DRIVING JAPAN legs.

All elements were considered for this analysis: PHOTOS, PRO SHOTS, AUDIENCE and SOUNDBOARD Recordings or ALD'S (All 27 shows were put under analysis), amateur video recordings, etc.

Sometimes the versions on the DVD and the CD are the same, but the DVD has extra overdubs, like crowd noises, etc.

The entire DVD is full of audience footage from almost every venue: Los Angeles, Anaheim, Chicago, Cleveland, New York, Dallas, Long Island; although there are only a few sources for the onstage footage and the audio.

DVD:

During the MAIN MENU, right in the middle of the screen- there is a collage of images and there is unique concert footage from Oakland which is absent from the DVD - mainly scenes from Jet, Back in the USSR and Hey Jude (no actual audio) which are also available on the Oakland EPK.

On the SPECIAL FEATURES MENU there is more Oakland concert footage not available on the "Concert Film"

Under SET LIST Page 1 MENU There is rare Dallas May 9 footage,including one shot of Paul on his white suit, not available elsewhere, plus more Oakland footage, mostly Jet, and Hey Jude. (no actual audio)

Under SET LIST Page 2 MENU, more Dallas 9 concert footage of Jet (no audio), plus Hello Goodbye from Oakland, along with familiar footage from the Special, with alternate shots of concert footage and fans.

Interesting NON CONCERT footage not available from the "Concert Film" is featured on EXTRA SONGS, BEHIND THE SCENES and SOUNDCHECK MENUS.

THE CONCERT FILM:

TIMES WERE MARKED ONCE THE "CONCERT FILM" STARTED, AND MAY VARY DEPENDING ON YOUR DVD PLAYER

Also featured in this review are the extra songs from the SET LIST MENU, plus 3 songs only on the WEB SITE.

If you think Wings deserves to be nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...


Should WINGS be nominated into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? There's a debate amongst Beatles/Paul McCartney fans whether Wings is covered by Paul's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a "solo artist." Does Wings qualify as a band and are they worthy with a string of number one hits during the '70s? Should its band members be recognized for their contributions?
