I have to wonder if not for Geo Harrison if we would've ever heard the incredible Ravi. what a loss that would've been. in footage from the Concert for Bangladesh, when Ravi and his fellow musicians were warming up, the audience was so unfamiliar with that style of music, they all started vigorously clapping just for the tune-up.
