sam brown, the bouncy girl singer, a revelation doing george's best song ever! the time out feature on the catalog, attached to the library cards, is a bitch. sam brown is not. she does a standout job of interpreting the difficult lyrics of "horse to the water": she wails and screams and claps vigorously and jumps up and down as if she were on a work out machine. the sax from tom scott is a peak, the gutar solo, watched carefully over, by Clapton, lives up to George's, jools Holland did not get his piano solo, but takes it good naturedly..ringo and eric interacting between photograph, and honey don't, is interesting. the two have some history, from one of ringo's albums, back when he made albums. jeff lynne, a travelling willbury, is a stalwart, and once you get used to hearing his voice replacing George's, you like what he does with "the inner light" as well as "give me love". Gary Brooker does an adequate version of old brown shoe. tom petty and his band were there, too, if you like his act. ravi Shankar's daughter, anushka, produces the indian music segment on the second disc. a surprising, shocking appearance by monty python closes it out..(it was albert lee, the guitarist, over whom eric watched, during"horse to the water")...this is one of the best concerts I ever saw. originally, horse to the water was not included but there was a storm of reaction, and so, here it is, now, but is it shorter?
