About

From the liner notes:

I’ve got a feeling… A feeling that it’s time for another entry in the ongoing (and going, and going) Paul McCartney Ultimate Archive Collection series! This time up, it’s 2010’s ‘Good Evening New York City’. Not one of his more memorable live albums, but it sounds pretty good and the DVD that came with the CD was actually pretty good. Too bad he didn’t get the idea of just putting an uninterrupted concert on a DVD for ‘The Space Within Us’ – am I right, fellas??!! Anyway, the bonus for this set seemed pretty obvious to me – just include all the audio from the bonus DVD that came with Best Buy copies of the set. It was of a mini-concert Paul had played on the marquee of the Ed Sullivan Theater on July 15, 2009. A little side note – I was working as a messenger in NYC that day, and I didn’t find out about the concert until after it was over. To say I was extremely pissed off about missing the impromptu show would be a huge understatement! I also missed when he played a few songs unannounced in Times Square to promote ‘New’ in 2013 – and he played two damn blocks from my office! I guess I wasn’t meant to run into Paul in this fashion. But I digress… So, once the mini-show is added, I had just a few minutes left, which was just enough to squeeze on ‘Helter Skelter’ from the Sandy Relief concert in 2012. Not the most imaginative bonuses, but they certainly get the job done. Anyway, this title now makes 33 down and just 12 to go. There are a few live albums to get through among those twelve. At least now, there’s one fewer. Have fun with this one for now, and we’ll see what I come up with next.

NOTES:
“The rain exploded with a mighty crash as we fell into the sun / I hope you’re having fun!”

CD 1, tracks 1-22
CD 2, tracks 1-11

The US opening show of the Summer Live ’09 tour, recorded on July 17, 2009 at the inaugural concert at the Mets’ brand new Citi Field ballpark. The sold-out crowd of some 45,000 endured rain showers from start to finish. A year earlier, on July 19, 2008, Billy Joel had played at the same spot: the last ever concert in the SHEA Stadium, before it was dismantled . For the occasions Paul had appeared unannounced, to play two songs with Joel. (see Out There – Live in Japan – Ultimate Archive Collection – cd2, tracks 11 and 12) So, this time the piano man returned the favor and came to duet with Paul on ‘I Saw Her Standing there’ (cd 9, track 9).

For this live performance of ‘Helter Skelter’, Paul won his first ever solo Grammy, in the category ‘solo rock vocal’.

The three consecutive concerts in Citi Field were filmed and recorded for a dvd, that appeared on November 14, 2009 as Good Evening New York City.

CD 2, tracks 12-18

A few days earlier, on Wednesday July 15, 2009, Paul returned to the Ed Sullivan theater, site of the Beatles’ U.S. television debut in 1964, to be a guest on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and perform for the crowd outside atop the theatre’s marque. The show was included as a bonus DVD with the Deluxe Edition of Good Evening New York City.

CD 2, track 19

Another version of ‘Helter Skelter’, recorded on December 12, 2012, during the The Concert for Sandy Relief in Madison Square Garden. Released as an iTunes download, on January 6, 2013.
