"Tripping the Live Fantastic" by Paul McCartney – ***

First released: 1990

McCartney’s first full live concert tour of the US since 1976 was commemorated with this live release. Highlights of this tour were the first ever performance of a number of Beatles tunes from the latter 60s. McCartney’s voice wasn’t as strong as it should have been, but it was nice nonetheless. Also included were a number of cover versions of old 50s tunes. A "Highlights" disc was released at the same time, containing mainly The Beatles’ songs. There’s nothing new on this version; however, the record club vinyl version strangely included the live version of "All My Trials", which was otherwise released as a single only.
