George Harrison – Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp

When it comes to organics and pure authentic sounds, this song defines that in every way possible and more. The sorrowfully-ethereal quality and feel of this tune, combined with the spatial tones lurking in the back over the constant descending b-line and chord progression, put this tune in my all time “100 Compositional Masterpieces”.

Listen closely and you’ll hear pedal steel guitar (played by Pete Drake) chiming in the background, gliding around and about.
