Ex-Beatle George Harrison organized this spectacular concert on August 1, 1971 at New York's Madison Square Garden to help and aid the people from Bangladesh with all the money raised destined to that cause. Along with Harrison the concert features Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Billy Preston, Leon Rusell, Klaus Voormann and an Indian music section by Ravi Shankar and a set by the legendary Bob Dylan.

More of the proceeds from the concert were frozen by the Internal Revenue Service than were given to UNICEF, pending a tax investigation. It took nearly ten years to release the remainder to UNICEF, by which time the crisis in Bangladesh had long passed. See more
In between 'Blowin' in the Wind' and 'Just Like a Woman', Bob Dylan
attaches his capo to the second fret of his guitar. George Harrison
then leans over to speak to Leon Russell
, but immediately in the next shot, Dylan's guitar is capoed on the fourth fret and George is back in his regular position. (This is most likely due to the deletion of another Dylan song, 'Mr. Tambourine Man', which was played with a capo on the 2nd fret and is included on the film's soundtrack album.) See more
