Harrison, Dylan, Fogerty, Davis,Taj, etc. Live at the Palomino Club
Live at the Palomino Club, North Hollywood on 19 Feb 1987.
In the Spring of 1987, The Graffiti Band performed with Taj Mahal at the Palomino Club in Hollywood. At this show, George Harrison, Bob Dylan and John Fogerty rose from the audience to join Davis and Taj Mahal in an unrehearsed set which included Fogerty's "Proud Mary" (played live for the 1st time since CCR per Bob Dylan's request), Dylan's "Watching the River Flow" , and other classic rock n roll including "Blue Suede Shoes", "Peggy Sue", "Honey Don't", "Matchbox", and "Gone, Gone, Gone". This is Part 1. Bootleg cds/VHS/DVDs exist, but no official recordings were made as this was not a formal concert, and not publicized.
LINEUP: George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Mark Shark, Bobby Tsukamoto, Gary Ray, John Fogerty Jesse Ed Davis, &  Taj Mahal
