A night in the studio with Fistful of Mercy - Video featuring 'Pale Blue Eyes', 'Buckets of Rain', & more

I found this great video of Fistful of Mercy performing a few songs in studio. It's from the session where they recorded the version of 'Pale Blue Eyes' (http://www.benharper.com/music/joints/fistful-mercy-pale-blue-eyes) that was released on Record Store Day. According to the FoM Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/fistfulofmercy), the recording session took place at F.P.S.H.O.T (Friar Park Studio, Henley-on-Thames), which was Dhani's father George Harrison's home recording studio (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friar_Park). The songs performed in the video are 'Fistful of Mercy', 'Things Go Round', 'Father's Son', 'Pale Blue Eyes', and 'Buckets of Rain'. The video is about 20 minutes long and was filmed by Benji Barnes. Here is the link:
