Before you rip out a patch of your moptop, looking for the 17-minute interview with McCartney conducted by one-time Squeeze keyboardist, Jools Holland, or the Cavern Club biography (like I did), click on Live At The Cavern Club to access what appears to be the Main Menu.

The vintage photos of his days with his other band that open Paul McCartney Live At The Cavern Club should put you in the mood to rock out in Liverpool, England. Adding to the
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a very nicely rendered picture that should surely satisfy fans of McCartney. The picture is smooth and solid, with sharp and nicely detailed images.

Reason #40 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love your magazine and am a subscriber! In order of priority, I read Widescreen in order to: 1) Read about home theatre equipment technology that is on the cutting edge.

As an example, when I saw that the DVD Forum Adopts HD-DVD Format (Feb 04), so(delete) I canceled my plans to buy a recordable DVD player, as I can see High Def DVD players are just around the corner. For the same reason, I am also limiting my purchase of movies on regular DVD as well. 2) Read DVD movie reviews, so that I can see whether a DVD is worth buying or not. If a movie receives poor Widescreen ratings on Picture and/or Sound, I probably will not buy the DVD. Rounders is one of my favorite movies, but I refuse to purchase it based on your poor ratings. 3) Home theatre configuration advice. Thanks and keep up the great work.
