Live Kisses is the living document of one magical night in the City of Angels on Thursday, February 9th 2012, when Paul McCartney decided to bring his newly released collection of lovingly rendered standards and two enthralling originals, Kisses on the Bottom, to life at the very same Capitol Studios where much of the album was created.
In exclusive interview segments with Paul and Kisses on the bottom collaborators Diana Krall and Tommy LiPuma, Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder, among others, Live Kisses offers new insight into the conception and creation of the Kissesalbum, the McCartney family gatherings that introduced a young Paul to much of the material, the fats Waller line from Live Kisses opener Im Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter that gate Kisses on the bottom its title and so much more
And then there are the performances themselves, from the sublime renditions of Home, More I Cannot Wish You, We Three (My Echo, My Shadow and Me), Always, Bye Bye Blackbird to Pauls rendition of new original My Valentine emotionally re-animating the true to life events that inspired the lyric with stunning acoustic guitar punctuations courtesy of Joe Walsh, plus Pauls harmonising with his longtime live drummer Abe Laboriel Jr on Im Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter, The Glory of Love and Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive.
All in all, it was a night like no other and an unexpected and unforgettable new chapter both in the fabled history of Capitol Studios and the peerless career of the one and only Paul McCartney and now, with the Jonas Akerlund film Live Kisses, one that can be discovered and relived by generations to come.
