Paul McCartney & Wings: Rockshow Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Rockshow is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Eagle Vision (an imprint of Eagle Rock Entertainment) and MPL (Paul's publishing entity) with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. There are some slightly varying press reports about the source elements utilized for this transfer, with some claiming the original negative, and others being a bit more circumspect. As fans of Rockshow may know, the original theatrical version and subsequent home video releases were edited. This restored, unedited version seems to my eyes to have been sourced from at least two different elements. If that's the case, my hunch is the less stellar looking material must have been sourced from a dupe negative or some intermediate element, for there is indeed some rather marked variation in image quality as even a cursory review of the screenshots accompanying this review will reveal. Generally, given reasonable expectations that this was shot on the fly at live performances (this is not solely the Seattle Kingdome performance, as some have stated—Gambaccini makes that quite clear in his essay) without the high tech wizardry that regularly accompanies today's live concert video fare, things look at least decent, if not overwhelmingly fantastic. The entire video is rather soft, and grain swarms over some of the darker elements. Some unfortunate lighting choices, including lots of red, rob the image of significant fine detail. Some of that red footage is among the most problematic, where mosquito noise also intrudes on top of the already florid grain. But the concert is very well covered by 1970s' standards, and best of all, this was filmed in the pre-MTV era, when, as Gambaccini again quite insightfully states, you actually got to look at the artists in concert videos for more than a nanosecond before yet another hyperactive jump cut intruded.


Paul McCartney & Wings: Rockshow Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Rockshow features both a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix as well as an uncompressed LPCM 2.0 stereo fold down. There's been reportage that the backups for this concert were in fact prerecorded in a relatively early usage of playback technology. Whether or not that's actually the case, the bottom line is that (perhaps for the better), you can barely hear many of the backups (yes, that's a swipe at Linda—my apologies) during many tunes. On the other hand, lead vocals are crystal clear and brilliantly reproduced. There's quite a bit of ambient hall reverb on the 5.1 mix, as well as a more than healthy dose of audience noise. For that reason, some may actually prefer the LPCM track, as it tends to focus the voices quite a bit more (the downside to this is that those dreaded backups are a bit more audible). The 5.1 track offers exceptional separation of the instruments and a really fulsome low end.
