George Harrison & Friends - The Concert For Bangladesh (2005) Retail CD
Not only was this album, the live recording of a musical event inspired by the suffering occurring in a country in serious need of aid, but a statement of compassion and deep spiritual kinship, the work of a contemplative man who have been part of the greatest group of all time, and was not above his times.All that said, the music contained here represents one of the best Rock concerts ever recorded, and hardly need any further significance attached to it, to be worth repeated listenings. Harrison, performing for the first time, since recording All Things Must Pass, is in excellent form, and somore… is Eric Clapton who provides a solo for My Guitar Gently Weeps that is even better for his White Album contribution.The material leans on George's first, and triple album, with Isn't It A Pity, Wah-Wah, Something, Beware Of Darkness, and a beautiful version of My Sweet Lord being standouts. In addition to them, Leon Russell's presence throughout is, perhaps the most unexpected gem. His rendition of Jumping Jack Flash is simply stunning, as it is his harmonies with Bob Dylan in Just Like A Woman.Yes, because then there was Dylan, offering a set of classics -now augmented by one song, Love Minus Zero/No Limit- accompanied by Harrison, Russell and Ringo's tambourine, who would be worth purchasing by itself.Other than Dylan's addition and the sound improvement on this remastered version, there may be no reasons for those who already owned the original CD release, to own this edition. But if you do not have it, this is a must, Rock history, tremendous music.The only thing I'd wish is that they maintained the original album cover, which not only conveyed the purpose of this concert unequivocally but was an icon in its own right.If nothing else, this release is thoroughly worthwhile because in reminding a large number of people like me who basked in the great music contained here, that it's time to listen to Concert for Bangladesh again.
