Shortly after the release of his All Things Must Pass album in 1970, George Harrison organised two benefit concerts at New York’s Madison Square Garden to raise awareness of the troubled situation in Bangladesh. With music from his closest musical friends — Ravi Shankar, Leon Russell, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Ringo Starr, and Bob Dylan — the resulting album was released in 1971 and is an incredible melding of message and music. From Shankar’s sitar virtuosity, to Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” to the surprise appearance from Bob Dylan — this album makes for a rousing, fascinating listen with an undeniable spirit of goodwill under it all. This collection, now celebrating its 40th year, also contains the original, studio version of the song “Bangla Desh.”



All net proceeds (after taxes), estimated to be at least $15.69 per download of each album, will be donated to the George Harrison Fund for UNICEF at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. iTunes and Apple Records Inc., the artists, the songwriters and the publishers will keep no income from each album sale and have waived all fees.

The Concert for Bangladesh

What can I say.... George Harrison and Bob Dylan performing for peace and Bangladesh, as a Bengali myself, I have heard many horror story from my Father who actually lived through that period. This album really brings tears to my eyes. I wish I could meet George in person, but that is not possible anymore... World lost a true talent and we all miss him. Great Album!!!

The Concert for Bangladesh

I have this in vinyl and I have now just purchased it for my i-pod. It is awesome and with what is going on in Somalie right now, it is a very appropriate purchase with fhe funds going to Unicef. Please take my lead and buy this album!

Un concert mémorable

Un must pour ceux qui n'ont pas les LPs vinyle. Un achat pour la bonne cause aussi. Rien que de la bonne musique!
