Loved the 2 night HBO special on George. Some great footage and terrific interviews.
For one who was sometimes known as the quiet Beatle, he was truly one of the world's great seekers.

Thought of you Woody, hoping you were able to watch.
was some shakin' and some record playin'

Well worth the price of HBO this month, along with Boardwalk Empire and Bored to Death.  Amazing footage, great stories, such spirituality.  And I only saw 2 segments out of context; it really sucks you in.  It sits on my DVR awaiting the full viewing.
Close enough!

It was really amazing.  I guess the exact copy that the NW Film School showed last night went from Martin>Roger Ebert>Gus Van Sant>to our showing.

So many laughs, a few tears.  Olivia Harrison describing his passing was powerful.  It will stick with me forever.

It is being released on dvd 10/10 in the UK.  No release date in the US yet, which makes me a little antsy to buy the UK edition.  I bet that they will release it here in time for the holidays.

All Things Must Pass is one of my favorite albums of all time.

I've been completely obsessed lately. I never appreciated George as much as I do now...what the hell took me so long? Yim does such a beautiful job covering his songs.

Pretty beautiful, both versions... a good cover by Ben Bridwell (Band of Horses)

George Harrison - "Your Love Is Forever"

YOUR LOVE IS FOREVER by George Harrison, cover Ben Bridwell, photos Linda Anne Brown

Found that on the Iron & Wine message board  :)

For how much I love the Beatles and George, its surprising that I'd never watched The Concert For Bangladesh before.  First time this weekend and I was really surprised how tight the band was.  A lot of times these all-star concerts are underrehearsed and sloppily performed.  I suppose its a testament to how skilled these musicians were that this concert did not sound that way, especially given how out of it Clapton reportedly was (according to his own bio as well as Pattie Boyd's bio).  Gotta give props to Klaus Voorman on bass and Jim Keltner and Ringo on drums for keeping it tight.  Wonderful playing by the horn section and the backing vocals, too. Billy Preston really fires up the band when he gets out front to do a little get-down boogie dance and then returns to the organ and totally nails That's The Way God Planned It, what a talent he was.  I'm not a huge fan of Leon Russell's vocals, but his turn was solid as well and I can see why so many hold him in such high regard.
