Thread Name: Concert for George Harrison DVD
Subject: RE: Concert for George Harrison DVD
This (or at least the feature film that Peter mentions) was on UK television late on Friday night. I can only but agree with Peter's superb review.

Yes, Bob Dylan was conspicuous by his absence, but I don't think that we should speculate as to why.

A personal highlight was Jeff Lynne's take on 'The Inner Light' (you're right Peter, Anoushka Shankar is a real babe!)

Excellent musicianship and interpretations of George's work throughout. Even though I taped it, I'll be buying the DVD too, in order to see the concert in full. What came over most of all was the feeling of genuine love. Yes, I did shed a tear at the finale: Joe Brown's "I'll see you in my dreams"

Highly recommended.
