James Paul McCartney - 1973

While underappreciated by critics at the time of its broadcast, James Paul McCartney remains a unique time capsule. The special featured most of Wings singles to date along with tracks from the new Wings LP Red Rose Speedway. Also included were previews of “Live and Let Die” and “Bluebird” as well as classic Beatles songs. Commissioned by music publisher and head of ATV Sir Lew Grade, the programme came about as a compromise between Grade and McCartney over songwriting disputes. Sir Grade challenged McCartney’s use of wife Linda’s name as co-writer on the LPs Ram and Wild Life, along with most of the singles released through to the end of 1972. As a resolution, Paul agreed to videotape the special for ATV, with him retaining total creative control. The special was produced and directed by Gary Smith and Dwight Hemion. This team was responsible for “Elvis”, the 1968 Comeback Special. With its blend of live performances, promos and skits, James Paul McCartney is a unique Television program worthy of revisiting. This remastered version belongs in every McCartney fans’ collection. John later remarked, “I liked parts of Paul’s TV special, especially the intro. The bit filmed in Liverpool made me squirm a bit, but Paul’s a pro. He always has been.”

For this definitive edition, we have used a previously unreleased source tape and restored the special using the finest audio and visual elements available. This extra effort results in the best presentation of James Paul McCartney to date.

Bonus tracks:

Blackbird/Bluebird/Michelle/Heart Of The Country – 2006 remaster, acoustic medley re-synchronised to the original raw audio source.

One Hand Clapping - 1974

With Band On The Run still riding high in the charts, Paul assembled a new lineup for Wings in 1974. He took the band to Nashville in June for a working holiday. The six-week stay resulted in the first new Wings single in several months; “Junior’s Farm/Sally G” was released in November. Wings also worked on several Cold Cuts that Paul stated would be issued after the next proper Wings LP. Pleased with the new lineup, Paul and Wings gathered at EMI’s Studio Two in August to rehearse and record old and new material. MPL videotaped the events with the intent of producing a Television special. Geoff Emerick recorded the sessions for possible commercial release. A tour was also under consideration. The sessions took place over four days in late August with almost forty hours of videotape shot. Directed by David Litchfield, the idea was to shoot on videotape and then edit and transfer the selected footage onto film. Frank Zappa’s film 200 Motels inspired this technique. The film was named One Hand Clapping, and is an interesting Wings documentary. The film takes the viewer right inside Studio 2 as Wings rehearse, record and share their thoughts. The film also gave each Wings member an individual spotlight section, Paul’s being a rare piano medley that included several songs never heard before or since. In early 1975, during the Venus And Mars sessions, overdubs for the film's finale “Baby Face” were recorded in New Orleans. In spite of the effort put into the project, One Hand Clapping remains unreleased to this day.

Picture Perfect is extremely pleased to present One Hand Clapping in incredible quality. For this edition, we have uncovered an amazing 35mm film print buried in the archives. This discovery far surpasses all previous 16mm reductions of this material. The audio has been taken directly from the original Nagras to produce this definitive edition. Apparently the transfer from video to film produced less than optimal results and may very well be a reason the project was scrapped. Short film excerpts from the finished print have appeared over the years, but no evidence exist that the original videotapes have survived.

Review by: mojofilterOn 08 Jan 2007 at 02:28 CET
just a note...although i haven't seen this dvd...a correction to the notes...Gary Smith and Dwight Hemion did not produce Elvis' 68 comeback special....Steve Binder did. Gary Smith DID however produce the 1977 Elvis CBS TV specail "ELVIS IN CONCERT" which aired in October or 77 after Elvis' passing....trivial yes, but worth correcting!
Review by: lemonjelloOn 26 Sep 2007 at 05:27 CET
A great looking DVD. Never seen this stuff in this quality before. My only issue is that some of the sync on the bonus tracks are a little of in places. The video quality is just breath taking.
