Concert for Bangladesh, side 1

Alright...this is a great idea and it will give me content for 6 straight days. I managed to find a fairly clean copy of the vinyl of "Concert for Bangladesh" (alright....it starts with a few pops...but you KNOW you miss hearing those!). Before Live Aid, before concerts for the People of Kampuchea, before Live 8, after Woodstock....George Harrison had an idea to help the people of Bangladesh, and get his rich talented friends to help out. Thus was born Concert for Bangladesh...a mix of modern and traditional music. This is the OG of benefit concerts. Musicians realizing what power they have over the listening public. I'll be spreading the 6 sides out over the next 6 days.

Side 1

1. Introduction
2. Bangla Dhun - Ravi Shankar

You can watch it here:
