True Blood’s Evan Rachel Wood shows her additional talents and appreciation of George Harrison by supporting Amnesty International in a music video singing, “I’d Have You Anytime,” written by Harrison and Bob Dylan.
Saturday February 25th, was the 69th anniversary of the birth of George Harrison. His birthday is saluted this year with the release of a new music video featuring actress/singer Evan Rachel Wood that honors the Nobel Peace Prize-winning human rights organization Amnesty International, an organization that George Harrison both supported and inspired.
Evan Rachel Wood has recorded her version of the very rare songwriting collaboration between Harrison and Bob Dylan. The song “I’d Have You Anytime” was written by the duo when Harrison spent Thanksgiving 1968 with Dylan at his Woodstock home. The pair had become friends when Dylan and the Beatles first met in 1964 and their friendship had blossomed over the following years. Their friendship continued for nearly four decades until Harrison’s untimely passing in 2001. Harrison placed his own recording of the song as the first track on his first ever solo album, “All Things Must Pass” in 1970. However the song has rarely been covered by other artists.
Evan Rachel Wood’s new recording of the song was made for “Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International”, the new 4-disc CD set commemorating the 50th anniversary of the movement.
