Carl is one of the greatest, and maybe the biggest influence of George Harrison along with Elvis and Little Richard. Just look at George face when Carl is playing...

Ahh yes, George Harrison loved Carl so much that when the Beatles were out having their fun playing gigs pre-stardom days that he had used the name Carl Harrison in tribute to him. My opinion of Carl's voice is more towards the tenor side of the spectrum though, granted I haven't heard much from what I recall his voice is fairly light with an almost whiny tone to it. Perhaps I miss some really obvious baritone sung records by him though?

Yeah his voice is very light but his highs are in general very weak.But I could not find any full note above A4 for him. The B4 and C5 are falsettos of Little Richard's songs.
Anyone agree about Carl as a Tenor?
