2.0 out of 5 stars A Poor Showing, 24 Sep 2003
This review is from: Behind That Locked Door: George Harrison - After the Break-up of the Beatles (Paperback)
There have been a number of George Harrison books since his death and this one, though it provides a cuttings job account of George's life after the Beatles, is commendable in concentrating on the music. Unfortunately the book is very badly written. The reassessment of such albums as 'Living in the Material World' is very interesting but the author is no more a critic than he is a writer and his account of songs hardly sends you back to the albums with fresh ears. And isn't that what it is all about?
Finally, it must be said that the author's diatribes against other musicians (especially Eric Clapton) grate exceedingly.
The idiosyncratic layout (which makes the book appear more subtantial) does not help.
There are better books to spend your money on.
