    Recorded live in Osaka and Tokyo, Japan in December, 1991. Includes liner notes by George Harrison.
    Perhaps still smarting from the poor reviews he received on his 1974 American tour, Harrison decided to make his 1992 return to the concert stage in Japan, where he presumed that both the fans and the media would be less critical and demanding than in America and England. Judging from the superb music on LIVE IN JAPAN, Harrison had little reason to worry. Backed by Eric Clapton's seasoned touring band (Clapton also plays guitar on the album but is not credited due to contractual reasons) Harrison performs confident, enthusiastic versions of most of his greatest songs, ranging from Beatles favorites like "Taxman" and "Here Comes The Sun" to a forceful version of his latest hit, "Cheer Down." Packed with excellent live versions of obscure (though wonderful) Beatles songs like "Piggies" and "I Want To Tell You," LIVE IN JAPAN easily surpasses THE CONCERT FOR BANGLADESH as the definitive George Harrison live album and it provides as excellent overview of Harrison's long and illustrious career.
