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.
