Update on March 9, 2016: We heard the news today that George Martin, who signed the Beatles and guided them to stardom, has passed away at the age of 90. We’ve featured many Beatles videos here over the years, but this one, featuring Mr. Martin, remains one of our absolute favorites. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have over the years.
Here Comes the Sun — it’s one of George Harrison’s contributions to Abbey Road (1969). And, among the many great Beatles’ songs, it’s my sentimental favorite. While we’re feeling sentimental, let me bring you this — Dhani Harrison, the son of the late guitarist, returns to the recording studio (presumably at Abbey Road) with George Martin, the Beatles’ legendary producer, and Martin’s son Giles. Together, they play with the mix of “Here Comes the Sun,” and then the wondrous little moment of discovery happens. They stumble upon the long lost guitar solo that never made the final cut. It’s a pleasure to see.
