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

Yep Brainwashed is great. I like P2 Vatican Blues (Last Saturday Night). It's kinda catchy....and shows George has a lighter (less preachy) side to his religious-ness.

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.

Cloud Nine or Living In The Material World. Actually, Cloud Nine. Cloud Nine is really enjoyable, with tunes like Devil's Radio, When We Was Fab, and of course, the hit "Got My Mind Set On You". You will love it.

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.

It's one of the few George cd's are library has but I've been too hesitant to pick it up yet. Maybe it's because George never actually finished it that freaks me out slightly, but I don't know. I know it was finished by very talented people, but I just haven't thought of really checking it out and listening to it.

George knew he'd never see the album released so he left instructions on how he wanted it finished. Dhani says Stuck Inside A Cloud was his favourite from all of the songs on it  and if you listen to the lyrics you'll see why; they are very, very sad in places......

I don't think it was George's best by a long stretch. Cloud 9 in superb, but as I've said on here before, Living In The Material World is an absolute cracker.

I'm glad that Jeff Lynne didn't make this basically an ELO album, as he did with elements of others albums (cough* Full Moon Fever*cough). I picked this up for $4 when I was in the US on Thursday. I've given a listen, and I enjoy it a lot.

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'd go with Living In The Material World or Somewhere in England.

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.

This is such a fabulous album. I got the special edition of it (oo), with the poster and special DVD and guitar pick and all that good stuff, and it brought tears to my eyes when I opened it. He had such love for everyone, especially his friends, and I have a feeling he considered his fans to be friends! a-hard-days-night-george-8
