George Harrison - Red Lady Too (1968)

The lead guitarist of The Beatles, George Harrison is often credited for introducing the Western world to the music of the east, and is the primary force of the sitar being used in popular music in the '60s. He is also credited as holding the first-ever charity concert, The Concert for Bangladesh, in 1971. He reached major success with The Beatles, but also as a solo artist as well as with the supergroup he formed, The Traveling Wilburys, with Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, and Jeff Lynne.

This song is taken from Wonderwall Music, the soundtrack to the film Wonderwall. The album was entirely composed by Harrison, who used pseudonyms, and only gave himself credit by name as the producer, arranger, and writer. It marks the first time a Beatle released solo work and was almost entirely instrumental. It was also the very first release by the newly formed Apple Records.
