Conan O’Brien’s week-long tribute to George Harrison continued on Wednesday night with a performance from The Beatles member’s own son. Dhani Harrison honored his late father with a pair of songs from his 1970 solo album, All Things Must Pass, specifically “Let It Down” and “Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)”. For the latter performance, he was accompanied by Los Angeles outfit Big Black Delta. Watch the replay below.

“Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)”:

Earlier in the week, Beck covered “Wah Wah”, and Paul Simon revisited “Here Comes the Sun”. Conan will wrap up his ode to Harrison when Norah Jones stops by the show tomorrow night.

The performances coincide with the release the new George Harrison: The Apple Years 1968-1975 box set compiling his first six solo albums plus unreleased live recordings and demos (out now via Capitol Records). An all-star tribute concert is planned for September 28th at Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre and is set to feature The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd, Spoon’s Britt Daniel, Brian Wilson, “Weird” Al Yankovic, The Killers’ Brandon Flowers and Mark Stoermer, and more.
