Thanks to the nice folks at Shout!Factory, I was able to shnorr a Blu-ray version of the 2012 MusiCares tribute to Paul McCartney a few weeks ago...
...and unsurprisingly (for this sort of thing) the performances are inconsistent, ranging from the cringeworthy (the cast of Cirque du Soleil) to the charming (Duane Eddy's twangy guitar version of "And I Love Her").
And I never thought I'd say this, but Neil Young and Crazy Horse -- who render an inappropriately elephantine version of "I Saw Her Standing There" -- absolutely flat out suck.
This Alison Krauss and Union Station performance, however -- of one of Sir Paul's MTV era hits (which I hadn't thought much about in years) -- is about as achingly beautiful as it gets.
Krauss sings the very bejeezus out of the song, obviously, but the secret weapon here is Jerry Douglas on dobro, in a performance for which the word "transplendent" seems to have been specifically coined.
