George Fest: Night to Celebrate the Music of George Harrison
In honor of his birthday (George would have turned 73 in February), this magnificent tribute concert from September 2014 now arrives in three distinct editions. For those just looking to listen, the 180-gram triple-vinyl set is the luxury item here (includes digital download). This star-studded night at the Fonda Theater in L.A. sounds superb on CD, too, and you can watch it on DVD or Blu-Ray. George’s son Dhani realized his dream here, watching artists from multiple generations put their twists on his father’s classics and deep cuts: "My Sweet Lord" Brian Wilson & Al Jardine, "Something" Norah Jones, "Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)" Ben Harper, "It’s All Too Much" Flaming Lips, "Here Comes the Sun" Perry Farrell, "Beware of Darkness" Ann Wilson, "Art of Dying" Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, "Taxman" Cold War Kids and more. Backstage footage finds the performers waxing rhapsodic about George and his enduring influence. Hot/Vagrant.
