George Harrison’s ‘Concert For Bangladesh’ Available On iTunes

George Harrison’s “Concert For Bangladesh” is now available digitally.  Digital retailer iTunes has debuted the concert album.

The project is still raising funds for a good cause as well.  In keeping with the spirit of George’s original concept, all proceeds — after taxes — from iTunes sales in the month of August will benefit the George Harrison Fund for UNICEF.  The charity was established to provide aid to children living in countries throughout the Horn of Africa, which is currently experiencing one of the worst droughts in decades.

George Harrison and Ravi Shankar organized “The Concert For Bangladesh” in 1971.  The event featured two concerts in New York City, which were recorded and released later that year as a three-disc set.  Bob Dylan, Billy Preston, Eric Clapton and others were on the lineup to raise funds for the people of Bangladesh after natural disaster and war ravaged their homeland.

It will also stream free in its entirety Saturday through Monday on iTunes, TheConcertForBangladesh.com and GeorgeHarrison.com
