Concert for George presents an all-star cast paying tribute to George Harrison a year after his death, on November 29, 2002, at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Eric Clapton served as musical director and contributes many fine performances of Harrison’s most beloved compositions (“If I Needed Someone”, “Beware of Darkness”). Paul McCartney teams with Clapton for a dramatic interpretation of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”. He begins “Something” on ukulele, an instrument that McCartney claims was of great amusement to Harrison, and remains in top form, putting great emotion behind “All Things Must Pass”. Ringo Starr belts out “Photograph”, his Harrison-penned hit, and “Honey Don’t”, a Carl Perkins number once performed with The Beatles. This edition includes “Horse to the Water”, an impressive unreleased original penned by George and his son Dhani, and performed by Sam Brown and Jools Holland. Harrison’s interest in Indian music is emphasised with performances by his mentor Ravi Shankar’s daughter Anoushka, who collaborates with Jeff Lynne for a faithful reading of “The Inner Light”. It’s clearly a night put together with great love and affection for a much missed musician.
My family and I are life-long Beatles fans - we watched this one Christmas day, and were overwhelmed with the sheer warmth, love, affection and pride that this bunch of musicians (Eric Clapton, Macca, Ringo, Joe Brown, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, Billy Preston, Ray Cooper and many more) show for George Harrison, his son Dhani (who plays guitar thoughout - and looks frighteningly like a 1964 version of his Dad) and his widow Olivia, and ultimately his music, which is at time stunningly covered (Macca on All Things Must Pass, Jeff Lynne on Give Me Love, Give Me Peace on Earth, Ringo on Photograph), and also treated with the utmost respect by an extremely tight band (and a guitarist, whose name escapes me, but who can play George's solos note-for-note). I challenge any Beatles fan not to shed a tear at Joe Brown (George's close friend) singing I'll See You In My Dreams at the end. We cried bucketloads!
concert for George Harrison
No real words can do justice to the impact The Beatles made. Each of "THE FAB FOUR" were incredibly talented. George Harriso wrote some pretty amazing songs,Lennon & McCartney were the names on most lips. George Harrison was awesome,the concert is a real treat. Get a box of tissues and a drink and savour a real feast of talent,originality and above all a fitting tribute to very gifted man!
It IS so GREAT...
The film and album are amazing. And I guess it's because everyone gave such heartfelt, beautiful performances. Not 'performances' as we have come to understand them in the 21st Century, but genuine expressions of joy and love to, and for, their friend. Wonderful.
