The critics had a field day dismissing this album: religious preaching, holier than thou lyrics and all the rest of it. Why can't people listen to the music for a change? How can anyone be offended by spiritual conviction? Or should I say scared? The same thing happened with Dylan when he became a Christian....it would seem that people prefer no allegiances to anything stronger, which is ridiculous. Life is complex and different people have different ways of dealing with it. And who can blame George after years of being idolised as some sort of hero in the Beatles? When the only return he got was Money for sure but a complete lack of privacy and sense of identity as an individual. Anyway, to the music. Which is Mighty Fine here. The opener 'Give Me Love' is among the finest songs written by anyone and as a result was about the highlight of the Conert For George concert. This song summed up George, even McCartney remarked upon the great chord changes in this song.
The rest of the album is equally fine. 'Sue Me Sue You Blues' contains a rather sad lyric on the Beatles split, but what Slide Guitar!! 'The Light That Has Lighted The World' is absolutely perfect, great chord changes again.....and a melody to die for. 'Don't Let Me Wait Too Long' is an infectious George pop song. Brilliant. 'Who Can See It' strains George's vocals for sure in rather too high a key. So what? Would we have preferred Ronnie Spector to have sung lead here? I think not. The title track is a pretty good stomping rocker with a lovely guitar solo, although far too short. George was rather fond of the horn section but the reason people buy George albums is to hear his guitar, not the horn solos of Tom Scott et al. Am being a bit picky, but you get the point!

This is a surprisingly good re-issue given that the original album sold so well. I thought there'd be little to re-discover but the digital production has been done with a sympathy that has cleared the original sound but left a warmth and honesty in everything. Oddly, in an age where Devandra Banhart and Jonna Newsome are kooky and cool this album fits very well. It's folkier than the albums that followed, sometimes spiritual, but often very open and engaging. Some of the tracks - Be Here Now, for example with its haunting simplicity - haven't dated at all. It's great to see Miss O Dell - where Harrison cracks up twice in fits of giggles - finally released on an album, proving wrong those who thought the man too serious.

In 1971 George Harrison released the excellent and hugely successful 'All Things Must Pass' - his first solo album (excluding the 'Wonderwall' soundtrack and the failed experiment with 'Electronic Sound' both recorded prior to the Beatles break-up). 'My Sweet Lord' was the massive, and controversial, hit from that album. (Listen to 'Isn't It a Pity' for the standout track.) After the major success of 'All Things' the question was could George repeat the feat with his 2nd album - 'Living in The Material World' (1973)?
Although he wasn't as strong or confident a singer as John and Paul there was a haunting wistfulness in George's voice that really gave his music a quality that the other two wouldn't match. Just as George couldn't compete with them when it came to belting out rockers so they wouldn't have conveyed the emotion that he did on his first 2 solo albums. For me, the slow ballads were George's strength - his serious reflections on life, fame and spirituality.

There are several standouts on 'Material World' including 'The Light That Has Lighted The World' - a song about resisting change which is melodically strong if lyrically dark. Nicky Hopkins' piano is just outstanding and George shows how far he has developed his guitar skills. In his book 'The Music of George Harrison - While My Guitar Gently Weeps' (a recommended read with many observations, insights, technical comments on the GH songs) Simon Leng says that the song is "not quite fully realised as there is no chorus, and no hook to fix the piece in the mind.

Albums come and go, times change, all things must pass............
BUT this is still one of my all-time favourites! I wore out two vinyl copies in the 70's, and the CD is always close at hand.
George's singing touches the soul - if it doesn't, then you probably haven't got one.
If he'd only ever made this record, his reputation would still have been assured.

This album is full of such exquisite pain, seemlessly blended with heart soaring joy that if it doesn't move you you're already dead. There are a few good old rocking numbers on it, but having listened to it from start to finish you will feel like you've undergone an emotional journey both draining yet fulfilling. My words can't do it justice, just listen to it, that is all.

Living In The Material World has always been my second favourite Harrison album (after All Things Must Pass). I looked forward to hearing the album remixed for some time having originally purchased my CD around 1991 whose sound quality was very poor - particularly for CD.

When I spotted the remastered box set, I bought it without question. The set itself is lovely, matching that of its predecessor ATMP. But upon hearing the CD firstly through the headphones and latterly through my system's speakers, I have to admit to being somewhat disappointed by the quality of the remastering. The bass end sounds warmer, but the top end is still paper thin and sadly, the hissing of the master tape is just about as audible as ever.

However, one thing that hasn't lost its shine is the content. These songs are nothing short of beautiful, wonderfully played and George's voice still sends a shiver down my spine not because he was a particularly great singer but simply because he sang from the heart: he meant every word he sung.

The poorest recorded track is the opener, the gorgeous Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth). The drums sound awful and the guitars are light. The harmonies however are superb and again, the voice keeps this great tune together. The DVD contains a live recording of this track from his Live In Japan tour of the early 1990s. This version turned up through the home-cinema system sounds fantastic and it gave me the chance to work out how to play the song on my guitar with the capo on the second fret!

The rest of the DVD is disappointing and if you already own Live In Japan on this format I wouldn't bother buying the CD/DVD set.

Living In The Material World - the song - has benefited from remastering.
