AllMusic Review by

iTunes Live from Capitol Studios captures a nine-song set Paul McCartney performed on February 9, 2012 -- the day he released his standards collection, Kisses on the Bottom. Like the studio set -- which was recorded in part at Capitol -- this is a set of loving renditions of prewar American pop standards, punctuated by a nice new original by Macca, and what distinguishes it is its warmth. McCartney may show some signs of vocal age but he lovingly leads his band and orchestra through these tunes he adores, and if a splendid time isn’t quite guaranteed for all, it nevertheless is a pleasant stroll through the past.
