Found Extra Texture in my cd collection (never knew i had it) and it got me wondering – why hasnt it or Dark Horse been remastered and reissued? Regardless of whether theyre any good or not they deserve to be available to buy in updated sound quality. 

If you can can reissue Johns Some Time In New York City then Extra Texture and Dark Horse should also be available to buy in all good stockists and via legal download.

It´s a big Q/mark for me too. Dark Horse might have the shadow of his master´s voice on it, still it has great material and George felt very good about Extra Texture, so how come it´s been left out, it´s one of those Harrison mysteries.

Well, if they're not available for downloading LEGALLY…

I like black music, disco music. I like the disco music that's out now - John Lennon, 1975

Indeed von, just sad that thats the only way you can get them. And they wonder why folks download illegally.
However the albums wouldn't have remastered sound surely?

Back catalogue for a lot of their CDs is dismal – I would love to have these 2 more readily available, as well as some Paul CDs like Flowers in the Dirt.

Go out and find a used copy of Dark Horse on vinyl. I thought pretty little of most of the album except for a couple songs, but when I listened to it on on vinyl I enjoyed the whole thing the whole way through. Plus that album's artwork is great.

I sold the vinyl long ago and there is no road back.  However, I agree with you on the artwork – as a package it all works really well.
