Pre The Concert for Bangladesh

This era sees the failed attempt by George Harrison and Producer Phil Spector to get the career of former Ronnette, Phil’s wife Ronnie Spector, started up again.

Fortunately, George’s following project would not be such a failure. Here we find the quickly produced contents of the single which preceded The Concert for Bangladesh.
