Audio: George Harrison Sings Rare Bob Dylan Song, ‘I Don’t Want To Do It’

Bob Dylan wrote “I Don’t Want To Do It” in 1968 according to Wikipedia, but never recorded it.

George Harrison recorded an acoustic demo during the All Things Must Pass sessions in 1970, but didn’t record a finished version until November 1984 at the Record Plant West in Los Angeles. It was produced by Dave Edmunds.

That version ended up on the “Porky’s Revenge” soundtrack.
