BRAND NEW -9/4 Update: Just Announced. All copies will be Bookplate Signed by Author Chris Murray. Publication Date, Sept 29, 2020. RESERVE NOW! All Things Must Pass, The Concert for Bangladesh, and Living in the Material World comprise George Harrison's solo career "triple crown." These three albums, produced from 1970-1973, defined George's creative and prolific genius as a musical artist after the break up of The Beatles. Photographer and George's friend Barry Feinstein was there to document it all. Coinciding with the fiftieth anniversary of the release of All Things Must Pass, GEORGE HARRISON: BE HERE NOW contains never-before-seen photographs from Feinstein's archive as well as ephemera relating to these seminal releases.

Among Feinstein's best known and most iconic photograph is Harrison in his wellies surrounded by garden gnomes at his home Friar Park, which graces the cover of All Things Must Pass. Serving as the official photographer of the Concert for Bangladesh, Feinstein's exclusive access allowed him to capture Harrison and his friends. Among those musical artists were Ringo, Bob Dylan, Ravi Shankar, Eric Clapton, Leon Russell, Billy Preston, Klaus Voormann, and more. They performed for a cause that would raise over $12 million for UNICEF, setting the stage for the concerts that would follow such as Live Aid, Farm Aid, and more.
Govinda Gallery director and author Chris Murray chronicles George's soulful, bohemian spirit and shares details of the singer-songwriter's life that connects readers with these intimate photographs. The preface by the musical great, Donovan, further establishes George's transcendence and enlightenment, calling out the truth in all of his songs: "The ever-present wisdom path which leads to the awakening of love . . . asleep within us all." We think this will be one of those books that will be cherished for years to come.
