Biography

This was a surprise! Back in 1970 with the break-up of The Beatles, all focus was naturally on the main songwriters/singers, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, to see what they would do next. However, it was George that hit the ground running with All Things Must Pass. That it turned out to be the very first triple album ever released was even more surprising to many, given how few tracks he ... Read more in Amazon's George Harrison Store

This excellent album collates material from the latter albums George made for Warner brothers, and what a stunner it is. Unlike some of George's solo work, this album is lighthearted, melodious, well produced and full of some exquisite guitar work. Three of the tracks are unavailable elsewhere and, produced by Jeff Lynne, were recorded during the sessions for Cloud 9. The new tracks, Poor Little Girl, Cheer Down and Cockamamie Business, are all boppy, poppy, cheerful and will have your foot tapping in no time. Blow Away features some of the best slide guitar George ever produced, and although overlooked at the time of it's original release, it should not be so now. Perennial favourites Got My Mind Set on You and All Those Years Ago are also featured. For those people who want an introduction to George's music, I wholly recommend this album in preference to the more well known Best of George Harrison, which draws heavily on George's work with The Beatles. This is a much better album, drawing together some of Georges best and happiest tunes from Thirty Three & Third in 1976 to Cloud 9 in 1987.

Format: Audio CD
This is actually George Harrison's second "best of" collection. Culling his best from 1976 through to 1989, this represents a far more upbeat and varied series of songs than the former Beatle used to write. Harrison breaks away form the Beatles sound and even his early seventies Phil Spector period.
There are the usual big hits like, "Blow Away" and "Got My Mind Set On You", but there were plenty of other songs that were just more than quaint; these being "Crackerbox Palace", a lovely ditty and "Here Comes The Moon". Another big plus is the formerly unattainable "Cheer Down"; a great song previously only available on a soundtrack. The most endearing songs are the two lamentable, but joyous recollections of the Beatles days. "When We Was Fab" is almost like listening to a photo album of images and "All Those Years Ago" is a bouncy number with a great keyboard and guitar solo. As poignant as these are, George seemed to only look back in wonder and joy on those days.
This is a rare set and although there are sure to be future "best of" collections of George Harrison's work, many of these cuts will probably not make it. If you can find it, grab it.

Collating the finest songs from George's Dark Horse label and three previously unreleased tracks, this album rocks along in fine style and dispells the serious sermonising tones of some of George's work. Produced by Jeff Lyne the three previously unrealsed tracks are all excellent - Poor Littel Girl, Cockamamie Business and Cheer Down - these presumably were recorded during the Cloud 9 sessions. Blow Away and Love Comes to Everyone are two personal favourites, with cheerful optimistic lyrics and some superb slide guitar from The Master. The production is rich and full, the musicianship excellent, but more importantly this albums shows the George doesn't always come across as introspective and dour. On the contrary, this album will make you smile and tap your feet.

This collection, currently out of print, has a great selection of material from George's Dark Horse label albums, with the obvious exception of Brainwashed.

A few of my favourites, such as Faster and Devil's Radio, are missing, but that's to be expected as compilations can't please everyone. The disc includes Cheer Down, which is unavailable on any other CD except Live in Japan, and is a great track with typical slide from George.

Sound is crisper than the LPs, packaging is OK and lists the musicians. This is well worth hunting out.
