And so Round 4 draws to a close. But what a way to finish off, Sparky's nomination, the one and only, legendary, George Harrison.

There was a bit of a discussion about what tracks to allow for this one, I tended to think towards Harrison's output post Beatles, Sparky seemed to think we should allow the Beatles' ones where Harrison played the major role, as in writing the song and singing on it. So, as it is Sparky's round, let's go with his idea. I am no Beatles expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I know that some of you are, so I hope that if Sparky isn't around to adjudicate on what is and what isn't allowed, then one of you guys can step in to help out. But let's try and keep it as open as possible to encourage as many nominations as we can get.

We have all weekend to get this one sorted, nominations won't close until 10:00 on Monday night so between us all we should manage this without any fisticuffs. Please do remember to include a youtube link if possible with your nomination, if you can't find one then dig one out from somewhere else.

And, if anyone hasn't noticed, we are now taking nominations for your favourite artist for Round 5. Just go this link to post the artist you think we should be investigating:

You will also find a list of all the previous nominations in there (thanks Al), and remember, we don't mind how well known or obscure your choice is, if you like them, let us all know.

Enough of the waffle, time for George Harrison...

By great coincidence, I'm watching the George documentary on BBC4 and they played this just as I was posting it.

Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5alGzF9hu_0

All Things Must Pass was one of the first albums I bought. Loved this song then and still do. A few years later at Birmingham Uni, I was in a flat with four people, one of whom was John Crisp, who turned out to be a relative and knew a lot about Friar Park. A song that brings back good memories.

Andy...Brasso always gets in early and usually nicks everyone's first choice..it's no coincidence that the first two nominators on here have 50 odd wins each! We're just extras! ;-)

EDIT: NOT posted with rancour, I kinda like being a bit part! ;-)
