All-Star 2002 Tribute Concert Celebrating the Music of George Harrison Remastered and Available on Vinyl for the First Time!

On November 29th, 2002, one year to the day that George Harrison left us, his closest friends gathered to celebrate his life in the only way they knew how – by playing his music. This amazing and historic event at London's Royal Albert Hall is now presented as a 180g 4LP-set for the first time. The beginning of the show provided an insight into George's spiritual self as Anoushka Shankar and a 16-piece orchestra of Indian musicians performed a special composition by her father and George's mentor, Ravi Shankar. It also paid tribute to George's well-known sense of humor courtesy of a rare sighting of members of the Monty Python team performing some of 'the quiet Beatle's' favorite skits.

The night then moved to Eric Clapton and friends giving the performance of their lives singing George's songs. All the musicians that George worked with over the years, from The Beatles to the Traveling Wilburys, dedicated their time to learn the songs and perform them as a tribute to their dear friend. Clapton led the band with Jeff Lynne singing "I Want To Tell You," "Inner Light" and "Give Me Love." Jools Holland and Sam Brown gave "Horse to the Water" it's first live outing. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers gave a particularly resounding performance of "Taxman" as well as "I Need You" and the Wilbury's number, "Handle With Care." Ringo Starr caught everyone with a tear in their eye with a touching rendition of "Photograph," a composition he wrote with George.

Paul McCartney treated everyone to a little bit of ukulele – one of George's favorite instruments and joined Eric and band for "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and "For You Blue." Billy Preston had everyone out of their seats and singing along with "My Sweet Lord." The band then came together to give a rousing version of "Wah-Wah." Joe Brown closed the evening with the old standard; "I'll See You In My Dreams," a loving and appropriate sentiment.
