Product Description

Product Description

In 1975 and 1976 Paul McCartney and Wings undertook the epic Wings over the World tour, the largest scale tour they would ever undertake as a band. From this tour came both the legendary “Wings over America” triple live album and the concert film “Rockshow”. Although filmed on this tour at the enormous Kingdome in Seattle, “Rockshow”, originally a cut down version of the concert, was not premiered until November 1980 in New York and April 1981 in London. It was released on Betamax and later on laserdisc. Now for the first time the complete full length concert is being made available fully restored from the original 35mm film and with restored & remastered sound, including a 5.1 mix for the first time. This is Paul McCartney and Wings live on stage in a concert that is destined to live forever!

ROCKSHOW:

The songs of Rockshow first appeared on the 1976 triple live album Wings Over America, which reach No. 1 on Billboard 200 chart. The footage of the 1976 American Tour was not assembled for three years, and was not released in cinemas until 1980. An edited version was released on Betamax in 1981. Finally, in 2013, the full-length version of Rockshow is finally available on blu ray and DVD.

VIDEO:

Rockshow is presented on blu ray, courtesy of Eagle Vision (an imprint of Eagle Rock Entertainment) and MPL (Paul's publishing entity), with a MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.85:1 encode. The entire concert was assembled from various sources, including the now demolished Seattle Kingdome. Without the high tech wizardry that regularly accompanies today's live concert video fare, things look at least decent, if not overwhelmingly fantastic. The entire video is rather soft. Some unfortunate lighting choices, including lots of red, rob the image of significant fine detail. But the concert is very well covered by 1970s' standards, and best of all, this was filmed in the pre-MTV era. (4/5)

AUDIO:

Rockshow features both a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix as well as an uncompressed LPCM 2.0 stereo track. There has been reportage that the backups for this concert were in fact prerecorded in a relatively early usage of playback technology. Whether or not that's actually the case, the bottom line is that you can barely hear many of the backups during many tunes. (Like the recent Super Bowl Half Time Show, pre-recorded backing and instrumental tracks were used, while the artists sang live – like singing karaoke) On the other hand, lead vocals here are crystal clear and brilliantly reproduced. The 5.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sound (Bass comes and goes) July 18 2013
Format:DVD
Hello

I'm happy to have the remastered version but I'm very disapointed that the Paul McCartney team didn't notice that the bass sound comes and goes frequently. I bought the DVD and it's very annoying as a problem.

I hope they will fix the problem. I still have my bootleg version on DVD I bought on Ebay. The show is incomplete but at least I have not the sound problem.

It's the first time that Paul releases a product that does not meet the high quality standards.

Song setlist : 10/10
Picture : 8/10 (but for a show that was not filmed in HD, it is great)
Sound : 6/10 (just because the bass comes and goes frequently)

Hello Amazon. I bought this DVD for my husband. He loves it. Very good music and nice to see them performing. It was nice to see Linda in it as well. I just wish it had my favorite song on it. "Uncle Albert" It wasn't. Oh well it is still awesome.

Thank you,

Edith Gaspar

I've been hoping for this film on BluRay or any format since the 1980's. you don't have to be a McCartney fan to live this - what a great show. Excellent presentation on disc, you'll love it!

I was at the Toronto show when the Wings over America tour came to town. The DVD brought back memories of one of my favourite concerts. I still say Linda's keyboard wasn't plugged in!

5.0 out of 5 stars A trip back in time - magical !!! Jan. 4 2014
Format:DVD
This is a great show over 2 hours long with Paul McCartney and Wings in their prime in 1976. I hesitated before buying this, I couldn't believe that this was just being released now in 2013 ???? This concert to me is just priceless. It offers great picture, great sound and especially great music, nothing like the crap that they put out today.

From some of the comments that I have read, don't buy this in Blu-ray. Don't buy any old concert from the seventies, eighties or nineties in Blu-ray from all of reviews that I read people aren't happy with the quality of Blu-ray. I don't have Blu-ray and I am not about to get it !

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait Dec 23 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have been waiting for this since it was released in 1976!
On the bright side, since it took so long to be released, I can now enjoy it with my daughter (she's 5 now).
Her favorite moment is during the performance of Live And Let Die (I have to rewind that 2 or 3 times).
I purchased the deluxe edition of this release and it contains so much material - notebooks, photos, oh yeah and the music.
Not one, not two, but 4 CDs and a DVD of the show. We prefer the Blu-ray though.
The 1976 Wings Over America tour was a period where McCartney was in the midst of a second artistic and commercial peak as an artist (with his then still new band Wings). It was also McCartney’s first major North American tour since the Beatles breakup, and not surprisingly, a genuine media event.
