“My Sweet Lord” by George Harrison-Rayman’s Song of the Day [VIDEO]
On this day in 1970, George Harrison kicked off four weeks at the number one singles chart with My Sweet Lord. George became the first Beatle to have a number one hit in America. The video is taken from the Concert For Bangladesh featuring George, Ringo, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Leon Russell, Bob Dylan, Badfinger, Klaus Voormann, Jesse Ed Davis, Jim Horn, and Jim Keltner.
From Rayman’s College of Rock n Roll Knowledge:
Although George wrote the song, it was originally intended to be recorded by Billy Preston..Not George Harrison.
