Did You Know?


The Indian portions of the soundtrack were recorded (live to two-track stereo) at EMI's studio in Bombay, in January 1968, and included Ashish Khan on sarod, and other musicians George Harrison knew through Ravi Shankar. (Future Capitol Records president Bhaskar Menon personally delivered a stereo recorder to the studio, upgrading their mono setup.) The same sessions produced the backing track for "The Inner Light", which became the B-side of "Lady Madonna" - issued while The Beatles studied in India with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, later the same year.

Incomprehensible Mess
7 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a piece of pretentious, pseudo-psychedelic crap. It is bad even for the sixties (and, being a child of the sixties, I've seen it all)! As for the soundtrack, George Harrison was right - he didn't know anything about movie music. Of course, all the people who slobber all over anything related to the Beatles will call the soundtrack a work of genius, but it's a perfect match for this dismal attempt at....what? Certainly, Harrison was a gifted guitarist (and Ringo was a pretty good drummer), but not everything the Beatles touched was magic (witness Hey Jude and Let It Be - two pieces of absolute twaddle to which no one would have given a second listen had they been written and performed by anyone else. However, I will say this in defense of Harrison: no one could have written a soundtrack that could have saved this piece of dreck.
