George Harrison

These pics were shot at the Atlanta stop on George’s 1974 North American tour. The tour was presented by Bill Graham, who was the hallmark of quality production. Great lighting, great sound, and unfortunately for me, great security. This was a reserved seating show, so I couldn’t just camp out at the front of the crowd. I think I offered to give some prints to a security guard if he’d let me shoot a few songs while kneeling in the aisle towards the front.

Sometimes, good stage lighting does not make for the most flattering photography. There was a lot of yellow spotlight used during the few songs I was able to shoot. George was a bit hoarse, but not jaundiced, though you’d never know it from some of these pics.

Toby - These shots are stunning,this tour received some really unfair reviews in my opinion. George was so cool and I was lucky enough to have seen him in London back in 1992. Once again wonderfull, the best collection of `74 tour shots I`ve seen, just wish I could afford one!!

roger dilernia - Being a photographer myself I know how hard it can be sometimes , to get the best shots , with only 2 or 3 songs to get them , these shots of George Harrison capture a lot of the energy and his charm, the yellow lights do cut down on the other colors , but in the end they are great shots, I welcome you to have a look at some of my work on my face book page. Well done.

Paul Undersinger - Cool photos and important photos. I do believe that’s Robben Ford on guitar behind George. Robin was just a kid. Thanks for posting.
