Notes: After returning home for Christmas after the end of his US/Canadian tour, George filmed a promo video for his new single
"Ding Dong" at his Friar Park home, reportedly on boxing day, December 26, 1974.
The promo is full of weird and wonderful costume changes from George including him wearing his 1963 Beatles collarless suit and pants,
another wearing his Sgt pepper clothes and a scene of him wearing nothing but an acoustic guitar and furry boots!
Until recently the best quality version of the promo had come from broadcasts on the Australian music video program "Rage"
but in November 2016 the Harrison estate uploaded a pristine remastered version of the promo onto the Vevo website which has now turned up on a FAB DVD.
