Harrison's Widow 'Torn' Over Decision To Release Track
Sir Paul McCartney's plan to put out an unheard Beatles' track has been dealt a setback - his former bandmate George Harrison's widow Olivia is reportedly undecided about agreeing to its release.
MCCartney announced earlier this week (17Nov08) he wanted fans to finally hear the Fab Four's 1967 experimental tune Carnival of Light.
The singer allegedly attempted to include the 14-minute song on previous Beatles Anthology albums but was blocked by Harrison - who disliked the composition because he felt it was too avant-garde.
Now MCCartney is reportedly set to face opposition from the late guitarist's wife, who - along with John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono - must give permission for the song to be released under the Beatles' name.
A source tells Britain's Daily Express newspaper, "Olivia is well aware George didn't like Carnival of Light. It's inevitably going to be difficult for her to give the go-ahead."
