About this title

Synopsis:

"The Beatles exist apart from myself. I am not really Beatle George. Beatle George is like a suit or shirt that I once wore on occasion, and until the end of my life, people may see that shirt and mistake it for me."–George Harrison [Newsweek, October 23,1995]

Of the four legendary Beatles, he is often referred to as “the Quiet One,” but behind this innocent-sounding moniker stands one of the towering giants of rock and roll. From the guitarist’s early days in working-class Liverpool, through years of super-stardom with the Fab Four, and onward into a life of spiritual devotion and bold musical invention, George Harrison: A Tribute takes you through nearly four decades of rock history in the Quiet Beatle’s own aptly chosen words. Joining him in these rare audio clips are fellow Beatles Paul McCartney, John Lennon, and Ringo Starr, longtime associate Alistair Taylor, and the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the venerable spiritual leader of the Transcendental Meditation movement that has so passionately captivated Harrison for most of his adult life.

“It doesn't matter if you're the greatest guitar player in the world. If you're not enlightened, forget it.”–George Harrison [Zen Guitar]

This remarkable tribute gives listeners a rare glimpse of George Harrison’s transformation from lovable pop star to seasoned solo musician, and illustrates how his rich spirituality propelled the artist to champion humanitarian causes and gave him the strength to face a bitter divorce, ill health, and a vicious assault. George Harrison: A Tribute celebrates the journey of the musician, film producer, activist, and survivor-- a journey which, like the traveler himself, is an extraordinary mix of the spiritual and the down-to-earth. It is a gripping, inspiring, and at times amusing portrait of one of popular music’s highest-soaring talents.

From AudioFile:

Geoffrey Giuliano condenses the life of musical great George Harrison into a whirlwind 90-minute look at his life, career, music, and faith. Produced shortly after Harrison's death, this retrospective includes interview clips with the "quiet Beatle" at various points throughout his career, as well as comments from other members of the Fab Four, associate Alistair Taylor, and even the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. At a glance, the book appears to be cashing in on the passing of an icon, but Giuliano is clearly passionate about his subject and reads with a reserved and awed enthusiasm. For any die-hard Harrison fan, it's an interesting, although brief, look at the high points of Harrison's illustrious career. The interviews are what makes this production interesting; no extra bells or whistles are added to the performance. H.L.S. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
