Up next in Beatlemania, is the film George Harrison: Living in the Material World, produced by Martin Scorsese and the new LP release paired with the bio flick, Early Takes Volume 1. The film premiered on HBO last October and is now available to watch in the comfort of your home as of May 1. Want to listen to the LP? We have a copy and we want you to take it off our hands.
While Paul and John often get all the praise (and Ringo getting the underdog-love from Summer of 500 Days), let us not forget Harrison is responsible for “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” “Here Comes the Sun,” and “Something.”
None of those tracks appear on the 10-song Early Takes Volume 1, but included songs are demo versions of “Mama You’ve Been On My Mind” and “Let it Be Me.”
If you want to get your hands on our copy of Harrison’s demos and early takes, share your favorite use, or most memorable, of a Beatles’ song in a movie.
An example: My favorite is “Twist and Shout” in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, hands down. I challenge you to find a better use. Go on.
We’ll choose one winner with a North American mailing address a week from today, 7/9.
