Starr, Edwin My Sweet Lord Comments
  1. falcao cerezo

    Harrison deliberately sampled "He's so fine" without giving credit to the Chifons / Bonnie Mack. The Beatles, like most groups or musicians, either sample or get inspiration from existing tunes, lyrics, or arrangements. It's been common starting with classical masters like Beethoven, Handel, Tchaikovsky, Rossini and all the way to Hendrix, Quincy Jones, Nirvana, Springsteen, Mark Ronson, David Guetta etc. Just give credit !! And pay royalties.

  2. falcao cerezo

    Best version of this song by a mile. His emotive voice captures the deep yearning to be in God's presence. Bliss

  3. Andrew Phillips

    This song was not written by George Harrison. It was written by Ronnie Mack in 1963. George Harrison was sued for “subconscious plagiarism” after Ronnie Mack had written a song 'He's so fine' and payed quite a bit to Ronnie Mack.

    Willie Ellebie

    Yep, musicians are still suing each other over songs today, especially if there's a lot of money involved. You don't hear of too many suits today over songs that didn't bring in millions of dollars.

    Chris Mulwee

    If you REALLY to hear want MY SWEET LORD sound HE'S SO FINE, just listen to Billy Preston's recording, it sounds even more like the earlier song than Harrison's own version.

  4. Jorge Clayton

    Excellent! Beautiful!

  5. Danny Jones

    Who was on Bass ?

    Willie Ellebie

    I looked but I didn't see any musician credits for this song, just writers, producers and arrangers.

  6. Stefan Bassermann

    Very, very cool Version!

  7. LAURA MOLANO

    and maha mantra??

  8. John Brocklehurst

    2016 and still listening to this beauty and the rest of Motown... God Bless Detroit xxx.

  9. Heidi Higgins

    This version really hits me were it hurts....

  10. Matheus Barcelos

    que voz the best

  11. soulfoodie1

    Produced by Norman Whitfield! Thank you so much for uploading as George was a fan of Edwin Starr (he had a couple of records by him on his jukebox)

    Willie Ellebie

    You're welcome!

  12. Douglas Perkins

    A great version of this classic! I especially like how it starts with "Oh Happy Day" which George Harrison claimed inspired "My Sweet Lord" rather than the Chiffons' "He's So Fine", from which he was convicted of plagiarizing the melody. Thanks for posting this song!

    Joe Blow

    He wasn't "convicted" of anything. smh

    Guy Incognito

    Joe Blow Get all bent out of shape over semantics all you want, but the court did find that Harrison had unintentionally plagiarized the melody.
