The label was also home to Ravi Shankar, Splinter, Henry McCullough, Keni Burke, Attitudes, Jiva and Stairsteps. From that list only Splinter achieved chart success with ‘Costafine Town’ in 1974. It reached no 17 in the UK and no 16 in Australia.

Leon Russell performed with Harrison on the historic Concert for Bangla Desh on 1 November 1971 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
