RE-UP: George Harrison live in Vancouver 1974 - 1CD - November 2

George Harrison
2 November 1974
Pacific Coliseum
Vancouver, British columbia, Canada

Source - "Live in Vancouver - Nov. 2, 1974" - Publisher: RMG

Even more incomplete version of the show at Pacific Coliseum, Vancouver, on 2 November 1974 - the first of the 1974 North American tour. It omits "The Lord loves the One (That Loves the Lord)", "Who can see it", "Hari's on Tour", "Something", "Sue me, Sue you Blues" and "For you Blue", and Billy Preston's "Will it go round in Circles", as well as the Indian music interludes. And the song order has been jumbled up.

However, the sound quality is much better than on the previous version, with more presence and the treble not coming in and out all over the place. Unfortuately, a version of the complete show hasn't turned up.  Surprisingly, George's vocals aren't hoarse at this one, the start of the tour, despite being so for much of the Dark horse album, recorded before, and the rest of the tour.

 1. Tom Cat (Scott)  6:25
 2. Maya Love (Harrison)  5:24
 3. Outta Space (Preston)  5:14
 4. Give me Love (Give me Peace on Earth) (Harrison)  3:37
 5. Sound Stage of Mind (Harrison)  4:49
 6. In my Life (Lennon/McCartney)  6:13
 7. Dark Horse (Harrison)  4:42
 8. Nothing from Nothing (Preston/Fisher)  3:57
 9. What is Life (Harrison)  4:49 fades out
10. While my Guitar Gently Weeps (Harrison)  6:16
11. My Sweet Lord (Harrison)  9:46

Total time: 61:22

Lineage: Audience recording

Bootlegzone reviews -
"The problem of this album is the fact of inexplicable absence of "The Lord Loves the One(That Loves the Lord)" and "Who Can See It". The tracks were only performed on this unique occasion on the 74 tour. Does a complete version of the show exist? I don't know..."  Teran (edited to make sense in English)

"All the CD releases, this and Black Cat's "Pacific Coliseum" are incomplete (plus the Black cat release unfortunately has been corrupted by a copying mistake that seems to plague every known copy). Even Green Grape left out this show when they tackled all the other known releases from this tour. The only complete source is the double vinyl album on the Singer's Original Double Disc label, # 005. I think a remaster is in order." thewalruswasjohn

NB. The SODD (Singer's Original Double Disc) version mentioned above does not contain the two otherwise unplayed songs, let alone the full show.
