Rockshow is a much needed DVD re-issue for Paul fans everywhere. It is the first complete video release of any kind of this movie.
The concert itself, is taken from L.A. (The Forum,) N.Y.C. (MSG,) and Seattle (Kingdome (1976-2000,) concerts during the Wings Over America tour. The performances are exciting and energetic. Paul really plays off the crowds, and is really enjoying himself. The highlights for me were the opening, Venus and Mars, Rock Show, and Jet, in almost a medley; Lady Madonna, a song Paul really enjoys playing then and now; The entire acoustic set, with Picasso's Last Words, and I've Just Seen A Face standing out; Denny's Laine's version of Go Now is also bouncy, the set of Speed of Sound songs is rockin', especially Beware my Love, and Soily, the great lost Paul rocker, is a great way to end the show.
The restoration and remastering of the movies' picture and sound is great. Still, some of the picture re-storing still shows some grainy and old aspects of the medium in 1976/1980, but it isn't as consistent like the old VHS/Beta/RCA disc/LD versions. The sound is wonderful, remixed and clear, unlike the muddy original stereo in 1980.
I must admit...I have the regular DVD re-issue, not the Blu-Ray release, so the Blu-Ray is probably better, but this DVD is still recommended.
