Paul McCartney: Between Chaos and Creation (documentary - Teaser)

DVD Reviews

The special edition is a nice package as it comes with a DVD featuring a documentary on the making of Chaos and Creation in the Backyard. Paul and producer Nigel discuss the songs and the processes involved in creating the album. Really enjoyed the DVD and it was a highlight to see McCartney in the studio playing various instruments. Very interesting to see all the differing kinds of intruments and equipment he uses.

Make sure you order the special edition with bonus DVD - the music is all the better for having seen how it was put together.

On PBS I actually saw a performance in Abbey Road Studios where Paul was performing the music on this album for a very small audience. The music was awesome, and his performance was very down to earth and personable.
So, at the end of the show I watched the credits, got the name of the album/music and tracked down this version of the CD here at Amazon. While the DVD in this set is not that PBS performance, it is great nonetheless. There is a 30 minute documentary of Paul in the studio recording this album. Paul details how he came up with the music, what he had in mind when he wrote each song, etc. Moreover, the DVD includes a studio music video, and music put to a video of the line art of the album.
