George Harrison – “The Inner Light” (Track of the Day)

In January 1968, The Beatles’ George Harrison recorded “The Inner Light” in five takes on a two-track recorder at EMI’s Bombay studio with the following musicians: Aashish Khan (sarod), Mahapurush Misra (pakhavaj), Hanuman Jadev (shehnai), Hariprasad Chaurasia (bansuri), and Rijram Desad (harmonium). The final take was released as the B side of the "Lady Madonna" single on Apple Records.
