Details on "Concert for Bangladesh" DVD

The George Harrison-organized 1971 benefit concert comes out Oct. 26 on a remastered, expanded DVD and CD set, both from Rhino Records.

Along with Harrison, the show featured appearances by Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Ravi Shankar, Billy Preston, Badfinger and Leon Russell.

According to Billboard:

Rhino's DVD restores the original 99-minute movie in 5.1 sound and tacks on a wealth of extras, including a rehearsal performance of "If Not for You" with Harrison and Dylan and a soundcheck take on "Come on in My Kitchen" with Harrison, Clapton and Russell, plus Dylan performing "Love Minus Zero/No Limit," an outtake from the theatrical release.

The DVD will also include a 45-minute documentary, "The Concert for Bangladesh Revisited 2005," which features interviews with Bob Geldof and United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan.

Also, Rhino is releasing a deluxe edition of the CD that will include a reproduction of Harrison's handwritten lyrics for "Bangla Desh," a postcard set, sticker and a print of the original show poster.
