    Great rendition and an inspired performance by Billy Preston of George's classic tune My Sweet Lord.

    Lots of great performances in this concert.

    if you ever see the movie where they show george coming up with my sweet lord.. it is really awesome and fun and musical and magic....

    wasn't it like 5 yrs ago?

    by the way, Concert for George was fantastic. The Tom Petty lead guitar player just nails all the leads.

    it is in the scorcese two part documentary... some amazing footage.. my mouth completely fell open.. I think maybe Bonnie Bramlett was singing too.. it was just awesome... and I had been kind of one of those people thinking he kind of calculatingly stole the song... I didn't think so after I saw that part of the documentary.

    That's a great DVD. I still get misty-eyed when I watch it.
