Rock God Cred Report:

Paul McCartney & Hear Music/Concord Music Group will release a new live cd on 11/17 ….”Good Evening New York City”.  33 tunes that cover all bases from the Beatles, Wings, solo McCartney, and The Firemen .  To top that off, you also get a HD DVD of the full concert.  Niiiiiice!

What hit me the most was the sound…it truly sounds like a live concert, warts and all.  It hasn’t been doctored up with countless overdubs.  McCartney’s voice gets a little rough at times, but that’s fine with me…that’s what usually happens when an artist sings his ass off on 33 songs. 

Musical highlights for me were his slight re-working of George Harrison’s “Something”, and a great live version of  “Eleanor Rigby”…Wings cuts “Mrs. Vanderbilt”, “Jet”, “Band on The Run”, and solo tune “Only Mama Knows” warranted repeat plays on the cd player.  An essential buy for Paul McCartney fans everywhere.


Disc One: 1) Drive My Car, 2) Jet, 3) Only Mama Knows, 4) Flaming Pie, 5) Got to Get You Into My Life, 6) Let Me Roll It, 7) Highway. 8) The Long and Winding Road, 9) My Love, 10) Blackbird, 11) Here Today, 12) Dance Tonight, 13) Calico Skies, 14) Mrs. Vanderbilt, 15) Eleanor Rigby, 16) Sing The Changes, 17) Band on The Run

Disc Two: 1) Back in The USSR, 2) I’m Down, 3) Something, 4) I’ve Got a Feeling, 5) Paperback Writer, 6) A Day In The Life/Give Peace a Chance, 7) Let It Be, 8)Live and Let Die, 9) Hey Jude, 10) Day Tripper, 11) Lady Madonna, 12) I Saw Her Standing There, 13) Yesterday, 14) Helter Skelter, 15) Get Back, 16) Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band/The End

Here are more details on the 11/17 release:

Paul McCartney’s historic three-night musical christening of New York’s Citi Field, witnessed by 120,000-plus attendees and universally hailed as a concert experience for the ages, will be immortalized November 17 when Hear Music/Concord Music Group releases Good Evening New York City. This momentous musical experience will be available in two formats: a 3-disc (2 CD + 1 DVD) standard edition and a 4-disc (2 CD + 2 DVD) deluxe version featuring expanded packaging and a bonus DVD including McCartney’s traffic-stopping, headline-making July 15 performance on the Ed Sullivan Theater marquee (including bonus numbers not aired on the Late Show with David Letterman broadcast). The set will also be made available in high quality vinyl. In any configuration, the 30+ songs and nearly 3 hours of music comprising Good Evening New York City are a must-have for attendees wishing to relive the July 17, 18 & 21 shows, those who couldn’t get tickets and/or anyone interested in an audiovisual document of a living legend.

Good Evening New York City marks McCartney’s 2nd release for Hear Music. The first was 2007’s highly acclaimed Memory Almost Full. The standard version of Good Evening New York City will be available at participating Starbucks company-operated locations in the U.S. and Canada and wherever music is sold.

      We were at the opening night concert. We left our t shirts at the stadium and I would like to replace them, where can I purchase two new t shirts from the concert?
