Amoeba Gig is the first full length commercial release of Paul’s surprise free concert at Hollywood’s Amoeba Music on June 27, 2007. To date only four songs have seen wide release as the Amoeba’s Secret EP, two of which were nominated for Grammy Awards in 2008: 'That Was Me' for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance and 'I Saw Her Standing There' for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance. A few years later in November 2012, an extended 12-song excerpt of the Amoeba show titled Live in Los Angeles – The Extended Set was made available free to PaulMcCartney.com premium members for a limited period.
With this release, the full 21-song recording documenting possibly the most intimate L.A. show Paul has ever played is made available to the public for the first time. The millions of people not among the luckier than lucky few hundred rubbing elbows with the likes of Ringo Starr and Woody Harrelson during that once in a lifetime in-store set will be able to experience those performances of Beatles classics 'The Long And Winding Road,' 'I’ll Follow The Sun' and 'I’ve Got A Feeling,' Flaming Pie’s 'Calico Skies,' plus Carl Perkins’ 'Matchbox,' Jan Garber’s 'Baby Face' and an emotional rendition of 'Here Today.' Additionally, the LP will include an exclusive soundcheck recording of 'Coming Up.'
Amoeba Gig has been newly remixed by Paul’s engineer Steve Orchard. The limited edition color vinyl version contains LP1 on clear vinyl and LP2 on hazy amber transparent vinyl.
