Half a CD.,
This review is from: Let It Roll: Songs of George Harrison (Audio CD)
The release of "a best of George Harrison" has been a long time coming,& to be honest it can only go down as a chance missed.To begin with surely there is enough material to make a really good double cd best of ?.In the end all we got was half a cd.The inclusion of live versions of "While my guitar gently weeps","Something" and "here comes the sun" are strange to say the least,why not use the studio versions ?I know it's only a matter of opinion but how can you have a best of George Harrison without such tracks as "Wah Wah","If Not For You",Beware Of Darkness" &"For You Blue" ? Unfortunately in the end what we get is a very poor effort considering the material available.

He may have been 25% of the Beatles, but even his estate has to have clearance from the other three to include Beatles' versions on a 'solo' project. And as this compilation is a solo release, why include versions of songs by other artists?

Mr. P. N. Cairns says:
I take your point,however as other people have suggested a good idea might have been a wings style career span,including 1 disc of solo stuff and with hopefully all other parties agreeing the other disc containing the best of george's other work.

I agree that it was a chance missed, but studio tracks like Something, Here comes the sun, are actually Beatle material, Like Paul he is entitled to sing his beatles songs in a concert. If not for you, is actually a Bob Dylan song and not entirely his.
