Thanks for that bit of info, Inner Light! I hadn't come across it yet. I have come across a post that discusses the track on another forum which predates March 2006 though (Here it is). I'm not sure how Ringo, Dhani etc. could have worked on it in March if the track had been released at least a month earlier! Oh well. It just adds to the mystery I guess. Haha.

I apologize in advance, but, er, are you guys sure that is George’s voice? It doesn’t sound like him… Why does he sound so different from the George of The Beatles or Cloud Nine

Oudis The Dark Horse tour the previous year, and generally not taking care of himself, took a toll on his voice (which was never particularly strong to begin with). He also got laryngitis in either '74 or '75, I don't recall. Anyway, yep, his voice was really shredded, so he didn't sound like himself-- just listen to Dark Horse, particularly the title track. 

Did his voice ever recover?

Aye, once he ditched being heavy on the brandy and the cocaine (a large part of George's diet in the early to mid '70's. ) he got better.

He didn't take care of himself very well after The Beatles split and especially after the breakdown of Pattie's and his marriage and he over-indulged in non-healthy substances to say the least. Once he got hepatitis and almost died he released that he wasn't invincible and started to take better care of himself- he also had Olivia in his life then and she saved him from probably being the first dead Beatle.

Yeah Olivia came and helped get George sorted and his focus back on what was important to him.

Strangely 'Dark Horse' is the best track on the album - which probably says more about the standard of the rest of the album.
