Harrison produced an entire record’s worth of Krishna chanting in the late ’60s and early ’70s. He also plays guitar. Some of the tracks are pretty straight up harmonium-and-chanting numbers, but “Govinda” is more of period pop jam, with sweeping strings and lots of reverby voices in the chorus, like an R. D. Burman/Phil Spector co-production.
