    Harrison’s film DVD set to be released

    London: George Harrison’s widow has made his dream ome true by
    remastering the film and music of his 1971 Concert For Bangladesh into
    a high-definition DVD, a project Harrison had to abandon when he
    became ill.

    According to The Telegraph, The 99-minute film of the charity concert
    has been restored and remixed, along with 72 minutes of extra footage,
    for release on HD-DVD.

    “It’s really stunning. It’s been blown up from the original 16 mm to
    70 mm. George wanted to get a full soundtrack. Now, you’ll be watching
    a really beautiful film,” Olivia Harrison was quoted as saying.

    There is previously unseen film of Harrison and Bob Dylan rehearsing
    If Not For You, with Ringo Starr on drums and then tambourine.
    Harrison, Eric Clapton and Leon Russell are also seen doing a sound
    check in the arena, playing Come On In My Kitchen. In addition, there
    is film, seen for the first time, of Dylan playing Love Minus Zero/No
    Limit at the afternoon show.

    Jonathan Clyde, who produced the new project, said the sound had been
    recorded on 16 tracks by Phil Spector, who was recruited by Harrison
    after they made his All Things Must Pass recording.






    "Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game
    because they almost always turn out to be -- or to be indistinguishable from
    -- self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time."
