Horse to the Water

"Horse to the Water" is a song written by George Harrison and his son Dhani. It was originally performed by Jools Holland's Rhythm and Blues Orchestra, featuring Harrison, on the album Small World, Big Band (also known as Jools Holland's Big Band Rhythm & Blues).[1] Recorded on 2 October 2001,[1] the song is Harrison's last performance on a record. Harrison only performed vocals on the track, as he was too weak from battling cancer to play guitar, and he died just over eight weeks later on 29 November. He listed the song's publisher as "R.I.P Music Ltd" instead of his usual music company Harrisongs, which Holland said showed "Harrison's dark sense of humour."[2] (In the liner notes of some versions of the CD, the credit is "Umlaut Corporation.")[1]

Other versions

Holland played the song in tribute to Harrison at 2002's Concert for George, with Sam Brown on lead vocals. This performance was included into the film, but not into the official CD release of the concert.

In 2010 Norwegian band, ORBO & The Longshots, released their version as a bonus track on their Live 10 album.
