George Harrison: A Tribute

Overview

"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 ...

Overview

"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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Recently deceased rock icon Harrison, known as the "Quiet Beatle," stands out both musically and spiritually as a true man of his times in Giuliano's audio homage. Apart from the overall disjointed organizational style, abrupt tape endings and limiting -90-minute time frame, Giuliano (Dark Horse: The Life and Art of George Harrison) uses a clearly deferential and reflective tone to show how Harrison, "no guitar prodigy," attained his talent through sheer labor. He gives background on Harrison's fortuitous meeting with Paul McCartney at the Liverpool Institute and makes brief references to famed Beatles manager Brian Epstein, Harrison's marriages and child, and his recently publicized bouts with illness and misfortune. Harrison's spiritual journey and lifelong interest in Eastern religion, the profound effect of Ravi Shankar, meditation, the Hari Krishna movement and yoga are more extensively covered (included is a humorous recording of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi talking about the musician). Giuliano's professionally modulated speech and smooth reading style counterbalance the sometimes crackly and unduly long audio clips he relies so heavily upon, making this a satisfying homage.
