Anyone spot George Best in 'From the Vault' studio sessions?


I do not often watch my 'From the Vault' DVD from 1969/70 as I simply feel some of the songs are 'not finished' - I prefer those same songs in their final developed stage, some 2 years later. eg. Highway Star, etc... still, of course it is an interesting documentary of what they were up to and extremely enjoyable - anyway, there is one face in the audience which caught my attention - he was in both studios (if not in all 3) and it struck me immediately who it was - George Best - years ago I actually met George several times in Manchester in his MANU days... and therefore I recognised him straight away. I read today that Georgie and Ian were best of friends, and there you have it. I guess George was spending some quality time with his DP pals (on a short drinking spree across Europe). I would too given half the chance...

That surpises me - I could have sworn it said something like "TV sessions recorded live in Denmark and Germany" on the rear cover...
I will have another look when I get home.

Highway Star, No No No, Hallelujah are germany(Beat Club) All snippets of where you see a TV studio audience(with best in his pink shirt) are from Doing Their Thing a show on TV in england(could be cuts of Speed King, Child In Time, Wring That Neck and Mandrake Root). The Gillan footage is from Moscow if I recall correctly.

Hi Milan,

Yes I'm sure you right - yes, they put Gillan's band on at the end which I thought was a pretty poor show eg. Demon's Eye is too 'modern' for my liking (whammy bars, squeels and tapping... no thanks).
