Bonus Features for the Deluxe Edition includes a 60 page booklet, reproduction of Harrison's hand-written lyrics for the song "Concert For Bangladesh," 10 belly-banded postcards, static-cling sticker, and a reprint of the original poster.
The Concert for Bangladesh was the first benefit concert of its kind in that it brought together an extraordinary assemblage of major artists collaborating for a common humanitarian cause-setting the precedent that music could be used to serve a higher purpose.

The concert sold out Madison Square Garden and has helped to generate millions for UNICEF and raised awareness for the organization around the world, as well as among other musicians and their fans. It is acknowledged as the inspiration and the forerunner to the major global fundraising events of recent years. To quote the United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan, "George and his friends were pioneers."

All artists' royalties from the sales of the DVD will go to UNICEF.

This 2-disc collection includes the original 99 minute film restored and remixed in 5.1, 72 minutes of extras featuring a 45 minute documentary The Concert for Bangladesh Revisted 2005 with George Harrison and friends, about the background to the two shows with exclusive interviews and contributions from United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan and Sir Bob Geldof. Also included in this collection are previously unseen performances: "If Not For You," featuring George and Bob Dylan from rehearsals,"Come On In My Kitchen," featuring George, Eric Clapton and Leon Russell at the sound check, and a Bob Dylan performance from the afternoon show of "Love Minus zero/No Limit" not included in the original film.

Editor's Note
A recording of the 1971 concert at Madison Square Garden assembled by George Harrison to raise funds for UNICEF's relief efforts to aid war victims in Bangladesh. Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, and Ravi Shankar are among the many performers who took part in the concert.
