Comments:
This is the first date of the brief (two-week) Japanese tour George Harrison undertook with Eric Clapton and his touring band in late 1991; as nearly everyone knows, this would mark his final series of live appearances aside from a charity gig in London a few months later. The performance is solid throughout; the band sounded well-rehearsed and professional and based on this recording one could never sense George's well-known aversion to performing live. The setlist is identical throughout the tour, and a great mix of Beatles and solo material (with a brief EC showcase in the middle of the set). For those who have never heard one of these shows, it's worth picking up.

The recording is pretty good -- nearly all of the Japanese recordings are great -- and Mid Valley did a good job with this release. The only flaw is that there is a fair amount of crowd noise evident between songs -- to be honest, I don't know if the audience mars any of the music itself, but the taper was apparently in the midst of an enthusiastic crowd that cheered a lot between songs. From what I've heard, the audience shouldn't interfere with one's enjoyment of the show.
