Half Notes: Paul McCartney – In Red Square: A Concert Film (2005)

Share this:

Filmed in 2003, McCartney was “Back in the (former) USSR” (c’mon, you know I had to do it) for the first time since the Beatles were banned from the country in the 1960s. You know what a dangerous thing those Beatles were. Featuring a Beatles-heavy setlist (thankfully), this isn’t quite a concert: They don’t use the term “film” in the title for no reason. Some may find themselves a bit annoyed at the repeated interruptions of the documentary aspect of the film, but McCartney’s been kind enough to include a bonus concert of uninterrupted material — though, it’s not the same show.

‘Half Notes’ are quick-take thoughts on music from Something Else! Reviews, presented whenever the mood strikes us.
