Paul McCartney “Live Kisses” / Dir. Jonas Åkerlund
In February, Paul McCartney released ‘Kisses on the Bottom,’ a jazzy collection of songs and standards that influenced the former Beatle as a young boy. To kick off that release he filmed a 13-song concert at the Capitol Studios in Los Angeles and streamed it to fans worldwide. That star-studded show will soon be available on DVD and Blu-ray.
‘Live Kisses’ — available Nov. 13 — features the album played in track order and in it’s entirety, with two exceptions. ‘The Inch Worm’ is cut from the Jonas Akerlund-directed film, and ‘The Glory of Love’ and ‘More I Cannot Wish You’ are flipped. Diana Krall and her band lead McCartney through the songs. The Eagles‘ Joe Walsh makes an appearance to play the guitar solo originally recorded by Eric Clapton on ‘My Valentine.’
Also included as bonus features on ‘Live Kisses’ are the ‘My Valentine Video’ starring Johnny Depp and Natalie Portman, two ‘Kisses on the Bottom’ photo shoots, and interviews with McCartney and album producer Tommy LiPuma. The package, which will also be available digitally, includes a 40-page book. For ordering details visit PaulMcCartney.com.
