The band might be five times the size it needs to be, but it's excusable because they're there to pay tribute to their friend. While some of the songs are really great arrangements ("Something" and "Horse To The Water" come to mind,) some are surprising bad ("Taxman" just sounds whiny for some reason.) Most of it though is okay and they at least piqued my interested in Harrison enough to get me to dive into the rest of his records.
The final song, which has never not made me cry, is a cover of "I'll See You In My Dreams" done by Joe Brown on ukulele (showing another side of George Harrison, the ukulele strumming, standards-loving musicians' musician.) It was a special event and the concert film is shot quite beautifully.
