Live In Japan - George Harrison, Eric Clapton (foreword) 1993 - Genesis Publications, Guildford - Limited Edition, Number 1511 of 3500 copies A spectacular production, signed by George Harrison, documenting George Harrison’s legendary first live tour after 17 years, playing with friend and instigator Eric Clapton and his band, the tour ended with three nights at the Tokyo Dome in December 1991. With a foreword by Eric Clapton and text by George Harrison plus members of the touring band. Featuring nearly 500 previously unpublished colour photographs and a full itinerary of the tour, together with the double CD featuring original artwork and 19 live tracks, as well an 'Access All Areas' laminated lanyard, George & Eric guitar picks & 'After Show' pass.

Eric Clapton explains how George Harrison was persuaded to return to touring after a break of 17 years and the the first (and longest) chapter is written by George and details his thoughts and feelings on taking to the road after such a long absence and providing personal recollections of the tour and memories of times on the road with The Beatles. The final chapter by John Harris, (who engineered the Live in Japan CD) offers a fascinating account of working with George in the studio.

Songs include ‘
Taxman’, ‘Here Comes the Sun’, ‘My Sweet Lord’, ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’, and a superb version of ‘Roll Over Beethoven’.

‘by and large this is a rocking, extroverted performance, and that is where Clapton and band, providing a solid foundation, helped firm up Harrison's repertoire and resolve. From the sprung rhythms and tart slide licks of 'Old Brown Shoe' to the crunching satire of 'Devil's Radio,' it is a pleasure to hear a pair of past masters bring out the best in each other.’ - Parke Puterbaugh,
