Book Description

8 Mar 2007
Cherished by fans and collectors since its first publication in 1980, "I, Me, Mine" is now available in paperback. The closest we will come to George Harrison's autobiography, it features George in conversation with The Beatles' spokesperson Derek Taylor, discussing everything from early Beatlemania to his love of gardening. The lyrics to over 80 of his songs, many in his own hand, are accompanied by his uniquely intimate and humorous commentary. Fifty archival photographs of George with The Beatles and solo capture a journey of creative and spiritual transformation. Brimming with the wit, warmth, and grace that characterized his life, and with an introduction by his wife, Olivia, "I, Me, Mine" is a treasured portrait of George Harrison and his music.

Product Description

Review

'I, ME, MINE' is a tasteful, expanded reprint of the closest thing to a George Harrison autobiography.' TIME OUT (4 11 Dec). The DAILY EXPRESS has also given the book a mention. 'If sales of THE BEATLES ANTHOLOGY are anything to go by, public demand for new Beatles product is as strong as ever. While, I, ME, MINE is not strictly speaking a new book, such is its rarity, except at Beatles memorabilia fairs (at vastly inflated prices) that is 400 pages and 200 illustration will be treated asa newly discovered treasure trove of insider detail about the biggest band in pop history.' Barry Forshaw PUBLISHING NEWS 9/8/02 Olivia Harrison is not doing any interviews apart from an American chat show (although there has been a lot of interest from the national press) and we do not have serial rights, so we are concentrating on reviews for I, ME, MINE. Capitol Records released 2 versions of George Harrison's last studio album, "Brainwashed", on 19/11. The memorial concert at the Royal Albert Hall has been covered in HELLO and some nationals. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars George's Autobiography 15 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
In the early 1980's Genesis Publications produced this book in a strictly limited edition, each costing around 130. Thankfully, we can now buy it in paperbook at a somewhat more affordable price. This book is pure self indulgence, but a treat for the rest of us nevertheless. Split into three sections, the book starts with a brief history of George's early life, written by George himself collaborating with is old mate Derick Taylor. Given that George is a very private man, this book can be considered his official autobiography, or as near to it as he allowed us to get. The second section consists of an interview with George, again conducted by Derick Taylor. There are few surprises and one rather gets the feeling that the real George Harrison is kept strictly to himself and friends. Nevertheless, George does allow us a glimpse into his life and world, including not only his music, but also his passion for gardening and motor racing. There could have been endless pages about cars, but, thankfully, the book has been carefully edited by Derick. George also describes in some detail his magnificent mansion, Friar Park, at Henley on Thames, and tells why he fell in love with the place. "The house came to the right man at the right time" explains Derick Taylor. The last section of the book features song lyrics, often in Georges handwriting on whatever paper was at hand at the time, and includes a brief description of each song and the circumstances that brought them into being. With black and white photo's included this is the only officially sanctioned George Harrison book about George Harrison. No other can claim that, and as such, Harrison fans would not be dissappointed. Included in the song lyrics are such rarities as The Pirate Song and Sour Milk Sea. Who can forget such classics?
Dedicated to "Gardeners Everywhere" this book is George Harrison at peace with the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Want to Tell You 18 Nov 2005
By BeatleBangs1964 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
As an inveterate Beatles' fan, it comes as no surprise that I would heartily endorse this book. Long dubbed the Quiet Beatle and other similar cliches, George Harrison does indeed offer his voice and reflections in this work. Always a private man, George's wordings here can be described as almost cryptic.
This work provides readers with a "glimpse" of George growing up; the former Beatle describes his working class roots in Liverpool, his musical muse and later, his work as a gifted composer, guitarist and lyricist. Indeed, George Harrison has expanded musical horizons; in 1965 he became enamored of the sitar and included it on several songs on "Rubber Soul" and later collections.
His lifelong quest for spiritual knowledge and core belief system are explored; indeed, it is in his own words he explains that he does not follow an "organized" or "traditional" religion, but rather bases his spiritual feelings around his internal beliefs.
I like the input the artist's wife Olivia offered; her words are a welcome and added treat to this work. Indeed, it is Olivia's contribution that make the reissue of this work even better and more effective in touching readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars I, Me, George 4 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback
If you are a Beatle fan, and your favourite Beatle is George, (like me!) then you're going to love this book! If you're not quite so much a Beatle-maniac then you might find it a little without direction. What this book does do, is give you an insight in to George's thoughts and what his experiences were like - but only George could write an autobiography that doesn't give all that much away! This book was written in the Seventies following the break up of the Beatles. Feelings were still hurt and legal battles were still on-going, and this is reflected in George's book. I believe John Lennon was upset about 'I, Me, Mine' as the whole thing only mentions John about twice, and indeed that Beatles only a handful of times.

The first half of the book is narrative biography - but it is a little on the short side (only around 75 pages I think) and doesn't have a lot of the sort of information and stories you might expect. The second half of the book (and this is why I have to give it 5 stars) is all of George's songs, lyrics and explanations as to what they were about or inspired by - and that is really George's story.

I'm not sure why George would choose to write a biography at the time he did. I wish he could have done an updated version before he died. That would have been fascinating reading!

If you're looking for a book about The Beatles or about Beatle George, this isn't it, but if you're looking for a book about George Harrison the man, then as the title suggests, you've found it.

Long before it was published again, it took me years to find this book in a public library in Cambridge, MA, because it was not available anywhere in Germany. And although I am a big fan of George Harrison's music I found the book rather disappointing. George says a few interesting words about Indian music but most of what he tells us is already very well known - little information, few suprises, there are better books about George Harrison's life and much better books about his music and the music of the Beatles.

3.0 out of 5 stars reluctant hero 9 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
George Harrison was particularly taciturn in interviews and interviewers were always wise to steer clear of questions about the beatles. But you would have expected an autobiography to have been more informative. He spent more than a year putting down his thoughts and at the end of that year there was so little material that a journalist friend had to pad it out. There are oblique references to events that merely tantalise and even subjects he feels comfortable with ie motor racing are dealt with curtly. A very light read.
