Various Artists - Concert for Bangla Desh Grammy Winner! Click here to see this CD at!

By Jerry McCulley

George Harrison's social and spiritual conscience had been an increasingly dominant force in the Beatles' final years, and his landmark 1970 solo album, All Things Must Pass, wasted little time giving it a remarkable, Phil Spector-produced forum. Harrison took the spotlight that album's success afforded and next turned it on the dire circumstances then afflicting the young nation of Bangladesh. Gathering most of the sidemen from the All Things album, and a lineup of stellar friends (Bob Dylan, Leon Russell, Eric Clapton, Ravi Shankar) and former Apple cronies (Ringo Starr, Badfinger, Billy Preston), Harrison set about staging some hastily organized benefit concerts at Madison Square Garden. This album resulted, and while its sonic imperfections sometimes belie the show's haphazard organization, it's nonetheless still the one of the greatest efforts of its genre. The All Things material gets a lively live workout, while Russell very nearly steals the show. The occasion also marked Dylan's return to live performance after a long absence.

"What is so magnificant about this concert.…

You have to be maximum -completely deaf musicly and intelectualy to forget the fact about the time and era when this concert was made. When I think about many musician and guitarist there is no body compering with George.Exellent sense for laconithy. Briliant sense for harmony, and of course you have all leading cult figures like Boby Dylan and Eric over there. Enjoy in this concert,behind all religious background-which in the end is not the end of the world…"
