New George Harrison box set: is DVD a worthy addition?

gh74Recently, when these pages reported on the unveiling of the forthcoming George Harrison box set, “The Apple Years 1968-1975”, the contents of its DVD weren’t disclosed. Now, they are, and it looks like the visual section of this collection – unlike that of its predecessor/prequel, “The Dark Horse Years 1976-1992″, which contained a nice number of videos – isn’t that special. Those who hoped for the footage from ex-Beatle’s 1974 tour will be hugely disappointed, as there’s none of it; perhaps, it’s being saved for some other occasion. A pity, really. What’s in there doesn’t serve up much viewing pleasure and unseen materials.

So what’s in there?
