Concert for George is a live tribute soundtrack album in honour of George Harrison, issued in 2003 in conjunction with the simultaneous DVD release of the same name. Featuring performances of many of Harrison's best-known songs, played by his closest musician friends, Concert for George is considered a fitting and heartfelt celebration of Harrison's considerable career.

The Concert for George was held at the Royal Albert Hall in London on 29 November 2002 as a memorial to George Harrison on the first anniversary of his death. The event was organised by Harrison's widow, Olivia, and his son, Dhani, and arranged under the musical direction of Eric Clapton. The profits from the event went to the Material World Charitable Foundation, an organisation founded by Harrison.

It is believed that the use of low-resolution images of such covers qualifies as fair use. Timeline See what happened in 2003. Written by George Harrison. 4:25, Live, L2. Concert From "A Concert For George" in London, United Kingdom on Nov 29, 2002. 16. All Things Must Pass.

Held back in 2002 at London’s Royal Albert Hall to mark the first anniversary of George Harrison’s death, this star-studded memorial performance of many of the former Beatle’s finest compositions, by some of his closest friends and colleagues, retains its significant emotional impact. That said, four discs of vinyl by comparison to The Concert For Bangladesh’s three? Side one’s just over 11 minutes long; side seven, 15 minutes and side eight, an etched vinyl mandala. It’s all a bit excessive and – on this occasion – not for charity.

The 4-LP Box Set includes the complete sound recordings from CONCERT FOR GEORGE, on 180 gram audiophile vinyl, featuring a special, mandala-design etched on side-8. Slipcase containing 4-LPs in single jackets.

TAGS: Various Artists. Concerts like these are usually long on sentiment and short on worthwhile content. But under the directorship of Eric Clapton, the concert for George Harrison at the Albert Hall in November 2002 was an exception. The event exudes a powerful atmosphere and genuine musicality as McCartney, Ringo, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty and others join Clapton in stirring versions of George’s best songs. They’re all to be found on disc two, while disc one contains a piece for both Western and Indian orchestra by Ravi Shankar, especially written as a farewell to his old friend
