Has anyone heard this great album by Mr. George Harrison? It was the last thing he ever released, actually it was released a year after he died, but it's absolutely fantastic. He just sounds so...content and happy. The album just makes me smile thinking of George and how great of a person he was and his legacy that continues to carry on. Anyway I just wanted to know if anyone else has any thoughts on this album because I can't stop listening to it. Here's a link to one of the best songs I've ever heard. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....GyvO522O-4

Note by Ahhh Girl 20 August 2014: I merged the thread titled "Songs of Brainwashed" into this thread. The three posts from that thread are now posts 29-31 in this thread.

A spectacular album. In my humble opinion, George's best, right after All Things Must Pass, of course. a-hard-days-night-george-6

I'd heard that Jeff Lynne did his best to ruin it. Is it actually very good, then?

I'd quite like another George album. I have All Things Must Pass. Which should I go for? I was thinking of just getting his greatest hits off iTunes or a similar service.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

One of George's best. Jeff Lynne and his son Dhani finished the album but George's spirit and interpretation of the songs is still intact.

While I've heard Brainwashed a little (and agree that it's very good!), I must admit I'm pretty unfamiliar with most of George's career... Could anyone give me a good album to start on? I only have a best of thing and All Things Must Pass. What's next?

Also, Mr. Sun, I love finding cheap CD's or Records. There's a market I go to here in Melbourne where you can get unbelievably cheap (and good quality) stuff... Arrgh, it's heaven!

I really like the George Harrison album. This was recorded during one of his most positive periods and if filled with his love for Olivia.
