Just watched the Concert for Bangladesh for the first time since it was released in theaters many moons ago and then watched Concert for George a couple of times. Wow ! Why did I wait so long ? I enjoyed both shows immensely and I had NO idea that the Concert for George had been out for five years. It's never too late though. Haha.


I was deeply moved by both events. Ravi Shankar's stuff was incredible as was his daughter's. And to hear all of the great musicians assembled for this event speak of George was special too. And WOW ! Does Dhani Harrison look like his dad or what ? It's almost scary !

I always liked All Things Must Pass a great deal. It's probably my favorite of all Beatles solo work and that's saying a lot. Anyhow, other comments on George or these events ?

I was fortunate to be able to attend the afternoon show for the Concert for Bangledesh..incredible experience. I was in the Navy, close to discharge date, I came home that weekend and my friend told me he had tickets for a George Harrison concert at MSG, would I like to go,,,yeah, OK.

Concert for George is an incredibly moving tribute, one of my favorite DVD.

Also I think George is VASTLY underappreciated. That is understandable to a degree considering the immnese talents of Lennon & McCartney but George was immensely talented himself. Also quite funny and a genuinely compassionate human being.

Concert for Bangledesh has always been one of my all-time favorites (one of my vinyl treasures ). Was lucky to see George and Ravi when did the Dark Horse tour but would have REALLY loved to be in audience to the Bangledesh show! (lucky guy, Ed! ) I think that George Harrison is such a spiritual and compassionate being and with this Bangledesh show he really laid the ground-work for using one's talent and fame to something positive and important for mankind. What an example. Namasté, George.

I received the DVD(s) Concert for George from my brother for Christmas a couple of years ago. At the time, my 17 year old son had just discovered the Beatles, and called me at work to ask if I new lot of Beatles songs - LOL! Then proceeded to tell me there was this one great Beatles song by George with a great guitar part in it, did I know what it was? I said it's my favorite Beatles song "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." He was at first surprised that I knew that song out of the blue. And then kind of just said, oh yeah, you had Cream and Led Zepplin, too. I forgot.

It's sad that kids today don't have the type of musical legacy that we had. We were truly blessed to grow up in the 60's and 70's. My son then borrowed the Concert for George DVD. I have gotten it back twice since then, and finally had to buy him his own, just so I could have mine back. Great music and great talent on these 2 DVD's. And yes, Dhani looks incredibly like George.

Have concert for Bangladesh and Concert For George on CD and enjoy them alot and besides All Things Must Pass I really like the album Cloud Nine and the work he did with the Traveling Willburys and I think he has the best solo Beatles catalog

Love both albums/DVDs.
The Concert for George is the most moving and loving tribute to a musician I have ever seen. From Ravi to the Pythons(with Neil Innes-a Rutle!) to the final encore of I'll See You In My Dreams, an absolutely wonderful way to celebrate an incredible soul.
