GEORGE HARRISON AND RAVI SHANKAR
East & West, Yin & Yang [Yellow Cat YC 074, 1CD]
Compilation of demos, outtakes and various unreleased tracks. Generally excellent sound.
For George Harrison fans, this is a follow-up to Far East Man [Living Legend], though there might be a slight bit of overlap.
This is what gsparaco wrote at collectorsmusicreviews.com:
East & West, Yin & Yang was released by Yellow Cat in July, 2002, about 10 months after the passing of George Harrison. This is a one-disc tribute filled with interviews, rarities, and difficult to find tracks scattered throughout his solo career in chronological order with emphasis upon his work with Indian classical music in general and Ravi Shankar in particular. The sound quality on of these tracks is generally excellent with a majority taken from professional sources.
Thanks to Phil for sharing the tracks.
Note: A longtime music fan, Philip Cohen was a contributor to the now-defunct ICE Magazine and compiled the boxsets for The Yardbirds, The Small Faces, Humble Pie and Nice.
