It features Bob Dylan, Ringo Starr, Billy Preston, Eric Clapton, Ravi Shankar and members from Badfinger. Harrison uses his own money to maintain the fund after legal problems freeze all proceeds. The triple album release (the second in a row by Harrison), hits #1 in the U.K. and #2 in the U.S. and receives the Grammy Award for Album of the Year.
