In the year that saw the ambitious remastering and re-release of the entire Beatles catalogue, the Cute Beatle is still going strong. Paul McCartney was always the Beatle that most enjoyed live performance and that enthusiasm has never dimmed throughout his long and storied career. Good Evening New York City captures the excitement from McCartney’s most recent tour with two CDs and a DVD packed with solo, Beatles, and Wings classics, including “Hey Jude”, “Yesterday”, “Band on the Run”, and 30 others.

The long-awaited, at least in some quarters, new Twilight movie hits theatres later this week, but the hype has been going on seemingly forever.

And the original…
