4.0 out of 5 stars George's best solo album, 23 Feb 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thirty Three And 1/3 (Audio CD)
By the time 33 1/3 was released, George barely had any credability left. Sure, his albums and singles sold respectively, but then they would do, as a former Beatle. However, every album offering since the much praised 'All Things Must Pass' had seen a steady nosedive in quality. By the time of the largely hideous 'Extra Texture' (1975) George had proved his best days were clearly behind him and were never likely to return.

So what a delight '33 1/3' was an is - an extremely listenable, focused, oftentimes sublime album. George is confident and content and produces some of his best ever tracks: "This Song" "Beautful Girl" and "Woman Don't You Cry For Me".

33 1/3 resuscitated George's solo career and proved the benchmark by which future albums would be measured.

Extra Texture was not 'hideous'. Its a great album, with great songwriting. Take a listen, you might like it!
