The Concert for Bangladesh Revisited with George Harrison and Friends (2005)

*** (out of 4)

George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Leon Russell, Ringo Starr, Billy Preston, Bob Geldof are just some of the people who are interviewed in this look back on the Concert for Bangladesh. Harrison, who only does an audio interview, talks about how the concert came to be, how he got it organized and the various issues that came up trying to pull it off. Some of the best moments deal with the question marks of the show including whether or not Clapton was going to get on a plane and show up or if Bob Dylan was actually going to perform after getting nervous when seeing all the cameras. Overall this is a pretty good featurette but I think there were a few problems. The biggest is that there are way too many music clips in the documentary. Yes, the music from the concert is great but if you want to hear them there is the actual film. I think it was a lot more entertaining hearing from the actual artists about the events that were going on for the show. Ringo briefly talks about the differences between the two shows but it's just a few lines. I really would have liked to have heard more about what the artists were doing in between the two shows and what changes were made. Clapton talks about his personal demons that were haunting him at the time and he mentions a mistake or two that he made. All of the people interviewed tell some very good stories so fans of the benefit, the album or the film are going to be entertained. We also get a lot of press footage of the event as well as some rehearsal footage.
