Great article and wonderful photos. This was the show in Oakland that I had front row seats for and could not believe I got so lucky. Looking at the photos, it's like I was right back in my seat at the Coliseum with George right in front of me. Thanks so much for sharing.

I know. I still can't believe the tickets I had. I went to the Oakland Coliseum and bought the tickets and they said on the face of the tickets, Section 1, Row A, Seats 1,2,3 & 4. I went back to the window so they could show me where the seats were and when I found out it was in the front row, I almost passed out.

That's amazing! Was the show good? Do you remember specifically any great stuff he played?

Not the greatest quality, but a nice document from this tour nonetheless...:-)

He was in such a bad place mentally, it's ridiculous he even went through the tour. I do have to say that while the tour wasn't nearly as bad as it's been made out to be (based on photos, bootlegs, reviews by people who were actually THERE, etc) he didn't help himself with his snarky and condescending attitude to the fans or press, which is mainly why the knives came out when it was time for the media to review his tour.

The big criticism was his voice, it became known as the 'Dark Hoarse Tour' for he genuinely had strained and lost his voice at the time, but it doesn't really sound too bad on this particular recording.  Not sure exactly what you mean by "condescending attitude to the fans or press", but he did attempt unsuccessfully to get the fans to take the Indian Music a little more seriously than they were, but this was something that he'd always struggled at achieving.  It's interesting that 'In My Life ' was chosen to include in the set, perhaps he felt that he had to play a popular Lennon/McCartney song?  Even more interesting is the arrangement itself, I actually like how he made it heavier but unfortunately he overdid it a bit, in my opinion, when he sang "In My Life , I love God more".  I wonder what John thought of this?...:-)

He also cheapened Something a bit by singing "Something in the way she moves it." Overall not a great tour but not the abject disaster it's been made out to be since then.

I thought it was "If there's something in the way, we move it." Nice way to wreck one of your best songs, George.

I think George was just having some fun and of course he wasn't that thrilled about playing any Beatle songs during that period of his life.

I'm hearing, "Well, there's something in the way she's moving", which isn't too bad but he follows it up with, "find yourselves another lover"!?...:-)
