Paul Is Live - 1993

During the New World Tour in support of the “Off The Ground”, album,  the “Paul Is Live”, album was created.  It was Paul's fifth live album and is famous for its title's double meaning and the rumor-scotching cover art. Ever since the 1969 release of Abbey Road, there had been hoax-fueled stories of Paul’s untimely death. The new title was a way of saying that this was most definitely not the case. The artwork is a play on the famous Abbey Road cover, with Paul crossing that same street but wearing shoes and using his left hand this time. (Originally, his bare feet and the holding of a cigarette in his right hand had supposedly been clues that it wasn't him on the cover.) As well as a raft of solo, Wings, and Beatles favorites, the concert also offers an insight into the band's sound checks, the final three songs all being improvised during rehearsals in various locations on the tour.
