So cool. Thanks! I think I have the single of this. A-side - Philadelphia Freedom B-side - I Saw Her Standing There.

EDIT - My single is from '75 not '74.

Thanks Greg, but I've got it... it's an official release, the expanded version of Here and There, 1976.  Now let's wait and see if someone does a synch job..

Someone has just done it, and even if I am not sure that the synch job is 100% accurate, it's still very good:

Why is this so important? I mean, I know there are Beatles fans who lust after rare video as if they're catching a glimpse of Jesus and the disciples but John Lennon and Elton John!? For that matter, John lennon and anyone? He was a pretentious. hypocritical tosspot.

Indeed, it was a pretty good job !  I didn't realize there was an audience recording.

Besides Eric Clapton and Billy Preston, Elton John must be the only musician that has played on stage with all the four Beatles members (percussionist Ray Cooper could be probably added to this list too, but I am not sure):

This was fantastic! George has always been my favorite Beatle and this was just awesome. Loved seeing Phil Collins there, too. Thanks for posting the link!

"Why is this so important?"

I felt very much the same way about some inane bit of crappy silent 8mm of Queen that emerged a few years ago (can't remember the name of it, but there was a huge fuss on the forum and I spent most of the time having an uncontrollable giggle over it).  Personally, I've softened a bit.  I wouldn't say I'm quite in anorak-wearing-archivist territory just yet, but I think there is some importance in a visual record; even if it is pretty crummy quality.

You are right, we should count after they split. We could cross off Billy Preston then. I think that no-one achieved that apart from Eric Clapton, Elton John and Ray Cooper (I have researched and indeed he played with Lennon at the Elton John 1974 concert, with George during the Japanese 1991 Tour, and with Paul and Ringo at the George Tribute in London 2002).
