“George Fest” – A New Harrison Tribute Collection

I don’t know if your’e into these tribute concert recordings where various musical luminaries are invited to pay their respects by singing favourite songs. I must say they don’t really do a lot for me, but there’s obviously a market out there for them.

The latest is George Fest – The Music of George Harrison, recorded and filmed on September 28th, 2014 at the The Fonda Theater in Los Angeles:georgebanner

To be released on February 26th, 2016, this live tribute will be available in 5 configurations including 2xCD/DVD, 2xCD/Blu-Ray, 3xLP (180 gram), digital, and a store exclusive bundle:George fest bundles

  1. I am looking forward to its release just so I can hear Dhani’s renditions of some of his dad’s songs! “Savoy Truffle” and “Let it Down”. I also enjoy Conan o’Brien so I’m curious to hear his version of “Old Brown Shoe”. I didn’t know he could sing (or maybe he can’t- I’ll have to hear it).
