George Harrison Essentials
While John Lennon and Paul McCartney shared most of The Beatles' songwriting duties, it was guitarist George Harrison who in introduced the band to the range of influences—from American folk to traditional Indian music and Eastern mysticism—that would constantly reshape their style through the ‘60s. A string of solo albums, which began popping up just before The Beatles' breakup, set a new course for Harrison's musical experiments, but it was his 1970 masterpiece, All Things Must Pass, that best showcased his incredible songwriting gifts. But music wasn't his only interest: he'd also go on to produce movies and benefit concerts. The most notable of these was the Concert for Bangladesh, which happened at the urging of his friend Ravi Shankar, with whom he made a number of beautiful cross-cultural recordings. Explore George's musically adventurous and deeply spiritual sides with this selection of his finest moments.
