Find My Way
Huh, at 3:07 you can see what looks like the original Hofner bass that I thought was stolen or lost during the Get Back sessions. Did he get it back at some point?
Found the whole concert on YouTube:
He really does sound in good voice. I do think he needs to give Come On to Me a bit more energy vocally, though. The instrumentation is fairly pulled back and relies on the vocal to drive it and the delivery's just a bit too laid-back, I think. It's like how he delivers the verses of Let Me Roll It which works for that song but not this.
He did Friday and will do next Friday too.
Tonights show was just a re-broadcast. HOW CAN WE DOWNLOAD THAT WONDERFUL SHOW???????
Yeah, I'd love to watch it. If it's on next week, I might try to catch it then and record it. I'd love some recordings of the new songs with him in a bit better voice than the Grand Central Station concert.
I'm inserting this addendum at the top because the curious tone I'd intended for the message sounds more negative than I meant it to and I can't think how to rephrase it:
How hard is it to actually achieve a #1 album these days? Obviously if I did it wouldn't even chart so I don't mean anyone can do it but with singles, I know streams from YouTube, Spotify and whatever else get counted (as percentages of a sale, though, I think) but I don't know how you'd factor that in for an album release. I don't know how popular albums are to create these days but I seem to remember they started declining in the last decade but they're picking up again. But, certainly a lot of younger listeners aren't buying albums. All the ones I know stream from Spotify and that's it.
Pair that with the fact that Paul's audience is probably, at its heart, still of the generation that does buy albums, I'm not greatly surprised it charted. #1 is excellent, though and I bet he's pretty chuffed. NEW only got to #3 which is still pretty fantastic. Kudos to all involved.
Ah, yes. I remember a lot of speculation about that at the time. I quite liked the video, actually. The only thing I didn't think it needed was the subtitled dialogue throughout. It was pretty stilted and you could have easily done the asking to Paul McCartney visually with her showing him tickets or something. That said, I didn't mind the dialogue at the end after the concert, just the stuff throughout.
I installed the desktop app & somehow after clicking here & there, the vids came up. Try these links:
worked for me on windows 10 laptop using their app.
That's the laptop I used too. Win 10 with their app. But I couldn't see it full screen. But I know someone that DL the entire show & put it on dvd so I'll watch it there.
I've been trying to work out how to do that. All my efforts failed.
I'd love for him to do one of the bonus songs "Nothing For Free". But I doubt he'd ever do it.
I could really see that working with the younger crowd. On bonus songs, I always wished he'd done Turned Out live. That would have been great with the band. And I have to agree I Can Bet would have been similarly good with this band.

Yeah, it would appear that you can only access it using the app. Bit of a frustrating thing, though: It appears that Full Screen is only available to premium users which is a bit of a ridiculous feature to lock out.
Not true. I am not a Premium user and was able to watch full screen.
On a mobile app or the desktop app?
