Happy birthday to the Dark Horse, George Harrison


No music collection should be complete without a copy of All Things Must Pass







and that’s George, not Paul, on the oft copied bassline in Taxman

A trio of of George’s finest Raga moments




and his 1968 soundtrack to the movie Wonderwall, again heavily Raga influenced

let’s not forget his pioneering work with the Moog synthesizer on the 1969 album, Electronic Sound.
