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

3.0 out of 5 stars Writing's On The Wall...Sister 16 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
The first Beatles solo album to come out following the tragic death of John Lennon. We Beatles fans were in a bad way and thoroughly welcomed this release in June 1981. Nothing heard from Paul since May 1980 or from Ringo since 1978. At least George was still producing albums. And I remember being quite pleased with this album on its release.
Hindsight and repeated listenings have shown it to be not one of George’s best albums, although it has its moments for sure. Part of the problem is that George’s first submission of the album had been summarily rejected by Warner Brothers, leading George to remove four tracks and replace them with four new ones. With mixed results. Gone are ’Sat Singing’ and ’Tears Of The World’ which should never have been anything other than B Sides. But also gone are ’Flying Hour’ and ’Lay His Head’, the former so obviously an outtake from the previous album ’George Harrison’s sessions, with Winwood organ to the fore, a great lyric and, although not excactly a classic, far too good to dump basically. ’Lay His Head’ is better, with that great slide guitar line. Warner Brothers: what exactly was wrong with this one??? It is great.
And so to the replacements: ’All Those Years Ago’ is a moving if somewhat lightweight tribute to John Lennon, and as it featured Ringo on drums and Paul and Linda on backing vocals it is even more moving. I lost my rag with some girl at university who complained that George was simply making money out of Lennon’s death. I mean….how Wrong Can Someone Be? OK it is not a classic exactly, but is thoroughly heartfelt in its lyric. Especially on lines such as ’living with good and bad, I always looked up to you’.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good start 10 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
This was the album that first got me into George's solo stuff. I borrowed it from the library I recall and was immediately impressed by the quality of the songs. It was only when I went on and bought the entire catalogue of George's albums that I could decide on reflection to place it in the second string of his stuff - the first string being 1979s "George Harrison", "All Things Must Pass" (1970) and "Brainwashed" the brilliant last album. However, I would still recommend it as a good introduction to his stuff.
But I am confused as to why this remastered version has the cover of the original rejected version, if this is not that version of the album? The made over version of the album had a completely different cover, which I am very fond of. Either release the original rejected album with this black and white cover or put the proper cover back on what was the official release. Don't mix them up!

2.0 out of 5 stars George is outta gas herein 24 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Despite containing an proper hit single in All Those Years Ago this is not a good album Ray Cooper's production is thin and lacks punch and George sounds somewhat uninterested. Worse, the songs have very dated synth padding and riffing on too many of them and there is not nearly enough signature Harrison slide guitar.
'tis pretty sad when the strongest, most interesting cuts seem to be the acoustic demo of Save The World (where Harrison sings like he means every word) and the original LP's cover version of Hoagy Carmichael's Baltimore Oriole.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful album with original artwork 15 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album was first released in the summer of 1981 and it was the first George Harrison album I bought, only the 3rd album I ever bought actually. I love this album and I still enjoy listening to it to this day. It's great that a remastered CD is being made available. The artwork is the original one chosen by George, but unfortunately rejected by his then record company WEA. "Life itself" is to me one of the most beautiful songs of our time.
