GEORGE HARRISON AUTOGRAPHED "CONCERT FOR BANGLADESH" ALBUM/BOX SET $2,250.00- A first edition, 3 album, box set of George Harrison's "CONCERT FOR BANGLADESH." This was a gift from George Harrison to one of the people who helped with the making of the album. Unlike handing your album to George to sign, this is special because it was George's and was given as a gift. It is signed ( 3/4" by 2 1/4") in the upper left hand corner, "To Roger Thanks A Lot George Harrison", in ballpoint pen. Like most of these box sets the lid sides had flattened out and separated in spots. However, the sides have been stabilized/restored. The cover shows some fading, wear and spots of missing paper to the sides. The box tray shows less wear and light soiling to the bottom. It comes with the original 3 vinyl album set with original sleeves, and concert book. The records rate VG to VG+. Overall a solid example of this vintage box set and made very special by George's signature. This is an early 1970's Harrison signature. This will come with Tracks U.K. and GDM Enterprises LOA. Signed album covers are at the top of the autograph chain for desirability.
Unique 3 1/2 inch x 5 3/4 inch, 1/2 inch thick clear lucite holder with swivel base with custom art graphics and an actual swatch from an orange, green, brown, and silver pailsey pattern 1960's, India style, kurta worn by George Harrison in India. This 2 piece kurta was acquired by George from the Westwood, California Sat Purush Boutique. After careful inspection and consideration it was determined that a small swatch of material (from the interior pocket area) could be removed without compromising the integrity of the garment. The removal was done by a professional seamstress. Each swatch will be unique in pattern, but all will be of similar size (1/4"x7/8"). Both sides of the swatch can be viewed in this unique display. We have also added three (3) actual color film frames from a vintage reel of film showing George Harrison and The Beatles with the Yogi in India.
This display comes with a laminated COA card on the swatch and one for the film frames.
YOU WILL ALSO RECEIVE TWO GEORGE HARRISON GUITAR PICKS AS SHOWN, A DARK BLUE, VELVET-LIKE, ZIPPER STORAGE POUCH FOR STORAGE/PROTECTION.
This also comes with a 1 1/2 inch (40mm) silver plated commemorative/challenge coin in a sealed protective storage case.
THIS WILL MAKE THE ULTIMATE GIFT FOR A GEORGE HARRISON FAN IN YOUR LIFE.
In February 1968, the English rock band the Beatles travelled to Rishikesh in northern India to attend an advanced Transcendental Meditation (TM) training course at the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The visit followed the group's denunciation of drugs in favour of TM, and received widespread media attention. Led by George Harrison's commitment, the band's interest in the Maharishi's teachings changed Western attitudes about Indian spirituality and encouraged the study of Transcendental Meditation. The visit was also one of the most productive periods for the band's songwriting. The Beatles first met the Maharishi in London in August 1967 and then attended his seminar in Bangor in Wales. They had planned to attend the entire ten-day session, but their stay was cut short by the death of their manager, Brian Epstein. Wanting to learn more, they kept in contact with the Maharishi and made arrangements to spend time with him at his teaching centre located near Rishikesh, in "the Valley of the Saints" at the foothills of the Himalayas. The Beatles arrived in India in February 1968, along with their wives, girlfriends, assistants, and numerous reporters. They joined a group of 60 people who were training to be TM teachers, including musicians Donovan, Mike Love and Paul Horn, and actress Mia Farrow. While there, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Harrison wrote many songs, and Ringo Starr finished writing his first. Eighteen of those songs were recorded for The Beatles ("the White Album"), two songs appeared on the Abbey Road album, and others were used for various solo projects.
