Concert For George / four-LP vinyl package, combo sets & deluxe box

First time on vinyl • new combo packs  • deluxe box

Concert For George was first released across a number of formats in 2003 and documented that emotional and rather joyous evening on 29 November 2002 when friends, family and former bandmates came together to celebrate the life and work of George Harrison. Almost 15 years after that release, it will be reissued next month, available for the very first time on 4LP vinyl and other formats, including new video-audio combo packs and a very exclusive deluxe box set.

Despite the big names, there was something very intimate about this event and the people who performed all knew and loved George. They included Jeff Lynne, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney and Joe Brown, who closed the show with a tear-jerking performance of I’ll See You In My Dreams.


New to vinyl, the 4LP edition of Concert For George is the only audio format to have ALL the audio

Significantly, this new vinyl version features the complete sound recordings from Concert For George – the first time all the songs from the performance have been available on an audio product. This means that Sam Brown‘s stonking rendition of Horse To The Water (arguably one of the best of the night) is included on the vinyl edition. The CDs remain as before, and include a slightly edited down 20-track collection. Side eight of the new vinyl includes a beautiful looking etched mandala-design.


Deluxe box set limited to 1000 units worldwide

A limited edition deluxe box set includes the 4LP vinyl, 2CDs, 2blu-rays and 2DVDs along with a 12”x12” hard-bound 60-page book. Fans who buy this edition also get a cutting from the original hand-painted on-stage tapestry used as the backdrop at the Royal Albert Hall on November 29, 2002. This is mounted on an individually numbered card. This deluxe edition is limited to 1000 worldwide and includes a note from Olivia Harrison, explaining the story behind the tapestry. Before you get too excited, this edition is $350. I can only find a USA pre-order link right now.

New combo editions bring together CDs and blu-rays (or DVDs)

Although the content on blu-ray, DVD and the two CDs hasn’t really changed (the full concert is on the first blu-ray or DVD while the second video disc offers the ‘theatrical version with additional material’), this time around there are combo editions available: a 2CD+2xblu-ray set or a 2CD+2xDVD package. If you don’t want the video (why wouldn’t you?) there’s a two-CD edition as well.

Concert For George will be reissued by Craft Recordings on 23 February 2018. Note the insanely good price on Amazon Italy right now for the 4LP vinyl. Still waiting (at 21.20 17/1) for Amazon UK to deliver their price.
