George Harrison

The Peter Frampton Band’s tribute to George Harrison’s “Isn’t It A Pity” is the latest track to be revealed off their forthcoming album Frampton Forgets the Words. “‘Isn’t It A Pity’ from George’s album All Things Must Pass, was the track I could hear playing when I first arrived at Abbey Road to record,” Frampton explains.” Of the video, which begins with footage from Frampton’s Farewell Tour in 2019, he furthers, “We have all been in the same boat for over a year now.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of George Harrison's classic solo album, All Things Must Pass, the George Harrison Estate is pleased to announce a new 2020 stereo mix of the LP’s title song as a prelude of what’s to come.

The new stereo mix of the seminal album’s title track was overseen by multi- GRAMMY® Award winner, Paul Hicks, known for his work with the Harrison Estate, The Beatles and this year’s chart-topping albums by The Rolling Stones (Goat’s Head Soup) and John Lennon (Gimme Some Truth).

A legend of 20th century music and an international icon of India, sitar virtuoso and singular composer Ravi Shankar (1920 - 2012) will be commemorated with a series of Ravi Shankar Centennial Concerts in May 2020 to celebrate 100 years since his birth on April 7, 1920.

Abramorama, in association with Concord Music, announced they will present a special limited theatrical run of Concert for George, remastered in 5.1 Stereo Surround Sound beginning February 20, 2018. February 25th marks what would have been George Harrison's 75th birthday. Due to an overwhelming response from theaters in North America, the film has already been booked into more than 75 theaters in the U.S. and Canada, with the list growing daily. The International roll-out of the film will be announced next week.  

In honor of George Harrison's 75th birthday (February 25), the Grammy®-winning, 8-times platinum release CONCERT FOR GEORGE, will be available for the first time on vinyl, released as a 4-LP Box Set, as well as a Limited Edition Deluxe 10-disc Box Set via Concord Music.

Says Olivia Harrison, "We will always celebrate George's birthday and this year we are releasing Concert for George in a very special package in memory of a special man."

I was born in 1965, the same year The Grateful Dead was born and the year that the songs that would land on the Beatles' landmark album "Rubber Soul" were probably starting to gel in the minds of the newly turned-on Fab Four.  I grew up about as big of a Beatle fan as anyone ever could meet, especially when one considers that I was not even five years old when the band reached the end of their long and winding road.
