One of my favourite concert videos, and a terrific tribute.

You can tell it was all people George knew and loved. Really the only person missing was Bob.

I loved the Brown's performances. Sam's powerhouse Horse to the Water with Jools. God! The lady has one helluva voice. And Joe's I'll See You in My Dreams. Impossible not to shed a tear in!

I first saw it when it was streamed for free last year on YouTube for the 11th anniversary of George's death. That was the first time I'd heard anything from "All Things Must Pass" other than "My Sweet Lord." I was immediately struck by "Isn't It A Pity" and, of course, "Beware Of Darkness." And I remember asking a classmate "where have these songs been all my life?!"

The whole concert was so beautiful. It's definitely on my list of one-day-to-owns.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Does anyone know why it was omitted from the CD? I thought that was strange.

I think my favorite performances are "All Things Must Pass" and Billy Preston on "Isn't It A Pity."

As a side note, it kind of amuses me that the guitar Dhani plays seems almost as big as he. :-)

Oh my God, I cried for like 2 1/2 hours. Imagine watching Living In The Material World and then this back to back. You'd be dead.

You would - and thanks for the warning :)
