2Legs: A Paul McCartney Podcast

A podcast dedicated to the solo career of Paul McCartney. Hosted by Tom Hunyady and Andy Nicholes.

Episode 137: Live At The Cavern Club: A Review

July 31st, 2021

Quick and short this week folks! 

Tom & Andy continue a film/DVD review from the McCartney series.  This week it's Live At The Cavern Club released in 2001 but originally premiered live in December of 1999 on Direct TV.  

As we point out this period represents a small but memorable time in McCartney's career.  His first official performance back at the Cavern since the final Beatles performance on 3 August 1963.  

Andy gives an overview of the current Cavern Club and his experiences at the venue during his time in Liverpool and how the current club is laid out compared to the original on Mathew Street.  

The DVD itself runs short. Just a 45 minute concert - all featuring tracks from the then recently released "Run Devil Run" and features the same musicians assembled for the album. (Dave Gilmour/Ian Paice/Mick Green/Pete Wingfield/Chris Hall).  Tom gives an overview of the bonus features (2 interviews and music videos for 'No Other Baby' and 'Brown Eyed Handsome Man' which would not be made available again until the release of "The McCartney Years" (2007).

Anyone catch this live on TV in 1999 like Andy? or have the DVD like Tom?   Tell us!

See ya next time.
