Side five of the original release was given to Bob Dylan. Here he is backed by Harrison, Starr, and Leon Russell. His performance came at a time when he had rarely been performing live. He stuck to well known songs such as “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” “It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry,” “Blowin’ In The Wind,” “Mr. Tambourine Man,” and “Just Like A Woman,” forming the highlight of the show.
Harrison closes the concert with his Beatles hit “Something” and his latest solo release “Bangla-Desh,” which reached the American top thirty as a single.
The Concert For Bangladesh remains a grand gesture by George Harrison and friends. It is the early seventies at its musical and generous best.
