A charitable seed planted in the Western ear for the benefit of Bangla-Desh, which took full form in the flower of The Concert For Bangla-Desh. These tracks served as an advanced warning that the hat would be coming ‘round, but don’t appear on the triple-elpee benefit album. I’m sure someone in the corporate cryogenics lab is fusing this artificial limb to the expanded, remastered reissue of The Concert For Bangla-Desh right now. This was never one of my favorite singles from George, since it sounds here like the dark hoarse had set in early. The B side, “Deep Blue,” is only available here (though not for long) and is unremarkable save for the fact that it was later re-fashioned to better purpose for “Soft-Hearted Hana.”
