As I've posted before, I have been a Beatles fan for as long as I can remember with George being my favorite. But only within the last 3 years or so have I become a big fan of their solo stuff. I've had singles, compilations, etc..., but no complete collections of any of the four until the Lennon Box Set came out. Thanks to my beautiful wife, I now have all of George's post-Beatles studio albums.

This past Saturday night I listened to everything from Dark Horse through Brainwashed (I already had ATMP and LITMW) in the order of their release and was completely blown away. I kept thinking that musically, any one of his songs could have appeared on any one of his albums and would not have been out of place. The level of passion, feeling, emotion, honesty...was consistent throughout. I never got the feeling, he was going through the motions or phoning it in. Each song was just so beautiful.

It was the first listening of all of those complete albums for me. I cannot wait to dissect each one (lyrics/credits/liner notes, etc...) going forward.

I to really enjoy his solo albums. 'Dark Horse' and 'Extra Texture' are my least favorites but those two also have some gems. 

You mentioned the level of passion, feeling, emotion and honesty in his songs. This for me is what makes him so special. I always feel he opens his heart up in his songs and displays his inner feelings. I have been married for 30 years and remember I played on the guitar 'Beautiful Girl' for my new bride. I still get the chills every time I play that song. He just had a very special way of writing and always had a message many being spiritual that you could take with you. Such emotion in his voice accompanied by his sweet slide playing. He was truly remarkable.
