Paul McCartney - Live Kisses Blu-ray Review
Paul McCartney has always had an old-time sensibility that has come out in his music on numerous occasions. Songs such as “When I’m Sixty-Four” and “Honey Pie” have more to do with the music his father would have grown up with than the songs the Beatles were writing during the 1960s. There’s a reason for that – It was the music that McCartney heard as a young child via his father or through parties his family would have when people would get together to sing these songs around the piano.
McCartney had wanted to do an album of standards for a number of years, but others, most notably Rod Stewart, beat him to it and he didn’t want to look like a copycat. Finally, in February 2012, McCartney realized his goal and released Kisses On The Bottom, an album of old standards with two new original compositions. That same month, he descended upon the Capitol Studios in Los Angeles to perform cuts from the album with Diana Krall’s band. The result is Paul McCartney – Live Kisses, a Blu-ray of the event.
