Many Musicians to Join the George Harrison Tribute Concert

While John was my favorite of the “Fab Four” as a soloist, there is a strong argument that George may well be the most respected as a singer-songwriter.  The simple fact that the man settled for one or two tracks competing with the Lennon-McCartney duo certainly says much about his commitment to the group.  Regardless of how I feel, it is clear that many musicians have tons of respect and admiration for the man.

Pitchfork.com reports that Brian Wilson, Wayne Coyne, Weird All, members of Weezer, Cold War Kids and more will all be performing at the show.  All proceeds are going to Sweet Relief.  Sweet Relief is a non-profit that provides monetary support for struggling musicians.

After the break, there is a video of the DVD of a previous tribute concert to the former Beatle.  I have a friend who is a total Harrison fanatic and she was kind enough to let me watch the entire set.  I can say two things about the work.  First, it is amazing how much his son looks like him. So much so that it actually confused Paul.  Second, it is an excellent line up and performance.  The boxed DVD set has a  lot of material, all of which is very enjoyable.

Here is that video.

Universal is also releasing a boxed set, The Apple Years 1968-75, on 22 September.  The set will include his first 6 albums and  material previously unreleased.  You can find out more about both the boxed set and the show at Pitchfork.com.  Pitchfork also has another video for you to enjoy.

You can purchase the six CD, One DVD boxed set at the link below.
