Disappointing to those of us who were hoping for tour footage from 1974... and other available archives from that time period that would have been new, novel and interesting. Most of us who bought the extra expense re-releases are getting recycled goods on this one save an item or two.

It's the McCartney way of releasing: "feed them little scraps" and what looks interesting on the outside, for instance with the very expensive 2010 Band On The Run boxset, sucks when you actually look at it. Like "One Hand Clapping" which I am sorry to say, is nothing more than unrestored old crap, I have seen better mastering on bootleg DVD's and with those you actually get the feeling that at least someone put some effort into it to make its contents look good. Which cannot be said of the official release.
By the looks of it I am afraid this Harrison release is going the same way "feed them little scraps". Very sad, Beatle-fans deserve better!

Nice to see a restored Ding Dong on the DVD - but a shame that we are now officially without a cleaned up version of the Dark Horse promo/rehearsal... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VEWfVHqK5U ... the True Love promo (sadly left off the first box set), and of course some 74 tour footage - even one complete song would have been a bit special...! Still - looking forward to the remasters of the last two albums in the set...

OK, I was ready to settle for very little ... but this is a VERY poor selection for the DVD. It's basically a collection of DVD extras that were on previous releases - that have already been sold (and bought).
((and the Concert for Bangla Desh isn't even included in this box?!, so why refer to it ion the DVD)).

This is why I no longer pay for music!

Epic fail, none of my money is going towards this to help pay the electricity bill at Friar Park :-/

This new Box comes to fans of fools. Its value is only in the remastered CDs Extra Texture and Dark Horse versions. The promotional clip from Dark Horse will have only 30 seconds? This is absurd and unacceptable

I think by "Dark Horse Promotional Clip" they must mean a 30 second television commercial (John, Ringo, Paul, Nilsson - they all did TVC's for their albums around this time.) I don't think we'll be seeing ANY of the actual 'promotional' clip of George singing Dark Horse - unless it was utilsed in the 30 sec TVC...I'm thinking / hoping that Extra Texture and Dark Horse remasters will be available individually - that's where I'll be heading...
