George Harrison book: Be Here Now
Never-before-seen candids and ephemera of “the quiet Beatle” during his meteoric solo career, as captured by his friend and famed photographer Barry Feinstein, published in a new book from Rizzoli.
On hand from 1970 to 1972 for Harrison’s blockbuster “Triple Crown”–the release of All Things Must Pass; The Concert for Bangladesh; and Living in the Material World, which helped make Harrison the best-selling post-breakup Beatle, Barry Feinstein (1931-2011) became good friends with George during the three-plus years they worked together. Feinstein captured George Harrison at home, in his garden, onstage, and in the studio. Nearly all the images in this new book are previously unpublished.
The book contains never-before-seen ephemera related to these seminal releases during George’s most richly creative time post-Beatles, including handwritten letters talking about album ideas, album-cover thoughts, and putting together the Concert for Bangladesh. This collection also features beloved performers that George convened for that Concert for Bangladesh–where Barry was the only sanctioned photographer onstage–including George’s friends Bob Dylan, Ravi Shankar, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Leon Russell, and Billy Preston.
The book coincides with the fiftieth anniversary of “All Things Must Pass”. Although Dhani and Olivia Harrison have had plans to release an anniversary edition of the triple album, as revealed in a feature in Rolling Stone magazine, no such edition has been publicly announced. “Be Here Now” is a Harrison song from his 1973 album “Living in the Material World”.
