Comments : The definitive collection of Paul McCartney's video output (although oddly, there are some missing gems)
It has been reported that there are some hidden extras ... unfortunately, not really ... where would you hide them ?

Executive Producer - Paul McCartney
Director - Dick Carruthers
Executive Production Consultant - Ray Still
MPL Project Co-ordinator - Liliam Marshall
5.1 Audio Remixer - Paul Hicks

This three volume DVD includes solo music videos, career-spanning live performances, personal commentary by Paul McCartney and exclusive footage that tracks his incredible musical journey as never before.
Volume One and Volume Two contain the definitive collection of McCartney music videos.
Starting in the 1970s with 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 Biker Like An Icon. 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. One surprise is that watching them from the different sequence there is the odd different video !
(Tracks listed below with a Green background have two versions on the disc)
Volume Three includes live performances taken from three classic McCartney live shows;

  • ROCKSHOW filmed on Wings 1976 World Tour,
  • New edits of Pauls seminal UNPLUGGED in 1991 and
  • Pauls now legendary headlining performance at 2004s 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 (with vocal !), archive interviews with Melvyn Bragg and Michael Parkinson, alternative versions of music videos and the full-length 2005 documentary Creating Chaos at Abbey Road.
Also Paul has recorded exclusive commentary and personal introductions for most of the promo videos and each live concert.

This collection has been meticulously restored and all films polished, re-graded and given a new lease of life in widescreen format with re-mastered stereo audio and for the first time the original recordings have been re-mixed into 5.1 surround sound. Which is awesome.

THE McCARTNEY YEARS includes over 40 promo videos and over two hours of live performances in a value for money set totalling way over SIX hours !

The set is presented in a nice box with the three DVD's housed in a cardboard three-way opening pack.
Also included is a 26 page booklet which is sadly lacking in information. It includes an overview by Barry Miles and a timeline of Paul's life, but oddly takes two pages to go from 1942 to 1990 and then six pages to go the last 17 years ? Cover and sleeve by Andie Airfix at Satori Graphic (Andie Airfix !? ... really ?)
Photomontage by Rob Farrar.

9 Goodnight Tonight Promotional Video 1979
Directed by Keith McMillan.
# # # Approach this from the Play List and you see version C, from the Chronological Index you see version B. # # #
April 3rd 1979 - Recorded on the stage of the Hammersmith Palais in London and working again with Keith McMillan's company Keef & Co.
During this all-day session, which began at 5:30am(!) with the setting up of intricate stage lighting, five different versions are shot.
Shooting finally started at 4pm, but Paul chose only three of the versions taped today when the clips are edited and prepared for distribution on April 7th.
Only versions B and C are ultimately screened, with version D remaining unseen to this day.
For the clips, Paul, Linda and Wings appear dressed in their modern day clothes as well as in the style of the Forties, with greased-back hair and all. With clever editing, version B features the "roll back" technique, which involves cutting the video footage of the band in regular clothes with everything in the same position as when they were in costume. This version is sharp and clear.
Version C features the same footage, but without the edits back into modern day clothes and is grainy throughout to look deliberately dated.
In the UK, the clip appeared on BBC1's Top Of The Pops and on the Thames/ITV network programme The Kenny Everett Video Show, one week later, on Monday April 9th, where the video was shown in its entirety.

10 Waterfalls Promotional Video 1980
Directed by Keith McMillan.
In June 1980 Paul shot this promo on a specially built set in the middle of Wandsworth Common, with additional scenes being shot in a disused aircraft hangar. To assist with the taping, Paul obtains one and a half tons of polystyrene, and an eight-foot Polar bear called Olaf, hired from Chipperfield's Circus.
If you think Paul looks "different", it is because for one time only he parted his hair on the other side.
After numerous re-edits of the sequences, a total of six different promotional films are prepared, but only version three is seen on UK TV. It received its first UK screening on the ITV Saturday morning children's show Tiswas on June 14th.
Due to the technicians strike at the BBC, the clip never made it onto the flagship pop programme Top Of The Pops.

20 Coming Up Promotional Video 1980
Directed by Keith McMillan
Filmed March 26th and 27th 1980 at Ewart Television Studios in London, this is one of Paul's most complex, elaborate and memorable promotional videos. Through the wonders of modern technology, Paul and Linda appear in the guises of ten different people. Collectively the twelve-piece is billed as The Plastic Macs, Paul dresses as Hank Marvin (not Buddy Holly), Ron Mael (of Sparks) and as himself - "Beatle Paul" circa 1963, wearing a collarless jacket.
Paul says that the drummer was based on John Bonham, although it looks more like "Animal" of the muppets !

Directed by Nicholas Ferguson
Friday December 9th 1977 Wings re-gathered on stage two at the Elstree film studios in Hertfordshire, filming a third promotional film clip for 'Mull Of Kintyre'. Often referred to by Beatles collectors as the 'Misty' version, this clip features Paul, Linda and Denny singing the tune against a backdrop of rocks with rolling fog where, towards the end of the clip, the Campbeltown Pipes Band march into shot. Not quite as commonly shown as the first 'Mull Of Kintyre' clip, this much shorter version was directed by the same chap who previously directed The Beatles' Intertel Studio promotional films from November 1965.

1 Pipes Of Peace Promotional Video 1982
Directed by Paul McCartney and Keith McMillan
Recorded December 1983 on Chobham Common in Surrey, this promo movingly recreates the famous Christmas Day truce of 1914 between English and German troops in France.
The filming, which started at 8am and utilised the services of 100 extras, lasted two days. On the first day, Paul, who had his hair cut especially short for the filming, arrived on the set at 6am and spent two hours in make-up.
In the commentary version Paul says it was filmed on Farnham Common ?

3:42
3 Beautiful Night Promotional Video 1997
Directed by Julien Temple
Paul is mostly seen viewing his surroundings with a camera obscura.
The original promo was considered controversial as it included full-frontal scenes of the actress Emma Moore swimming in the River Mersey. MTV banned the video, forcing Paul to order a broadcastable version of the clip to be made. Paul co-stars in the film with the unknown four-piece West London group Spud, who were spotted playing in a small London club by the video's director. Also Ringo can be seen making a cameo appearance as a night watchman, disturbed by the noise and eventually playing drums on the song.

8 Pretty Little Head Promotional Video 1986
Directed by Steve Barron
Produced by Limelight Films in Dean Street, West London, this promo features a cameo appearance by Paul (filmed in London on October 18) in a film which centres around a young girl who runs away from home after having an argument with her father, who is played by Roger Lloyd-Pack, better known as "Trigger" in Only Fools And Horses. This rarely screened clip appeared in the UK on Channel 4's The Tube. Perhaps owing to the similarity between this and the story line in The Beatles' song 'She's Leaving Home', an 11-second clip from She's Leaving Home appears at the start of the video. The main bulk of filming for the clip was completed over six days, with location filming carried out in late October near Settle in North Yorkshire, the Gower Peninsula near Swansea and in London at the Lindford House Studios. Additional scenes are also shot at the East Greenwich gasworks.

11 Once Upon A Long Ago Promotional Video 1987
Directed by Paul McCartney and Mike Ross
October 16th 1987, just hours after the famous hurricane that ravaged the south of England, Paul was to be found climbing the perilous Valley of the Rocks, near Plymouth in Devon, where this promotional clip was shot. Subsequent footage, which was later combined with especially created animated cartoon footage (in a vintage Disney style), was edited to make three different promotional films, of which only version two was transmitted. Paul had briefly toyed with the idea of shooting the clip in Iceland, taking advantage of the country's snowy conditions.

The first police team on the scene are forced to reverse its squad car up the road after four men came up to them with their fake guns, but they were blocked by other traffic. Paul overheard the disturbance, intervenes and explains to police that the men are only actors appearing in his new video.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said later: "Nobody was charged, but the extras and the management at the studio were given formal words of advice."
