I truly love this album. I also have a theory as to why it is overlooked. George's solo worked dipped in the mid 70's, with bad reviews and bad press (see the My Sweet Lord case), so I feel this isn't rightfully viewed as the masterpiece it is. Does anyone else have this, and if so, how do you like it.

I have this album and I think it's really good, especially All Those Years Ago and Save The World, those are my favorites! I'd say it's probably his fourth best album, in my opinion. I also I liked the quote that was in it by Ghandi I think, about how there was no time where we did not exist and there will be no future where we cease to be.a-hard-days-night-george-8

Do you think the "My Sweet Lord" case needs its own thread?

Never heard it, but I will soon, I promise. It got two stars from Rolling Stone, and three-and-a-half from Allmusic. What are some songs that it features?

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

All Thais Years ago was the tribute to Lennon, and a monster hit, but Save the World, Blood From A Clone, Writing's On The Wall and Baltimore Oriole are all great. And for MSL, give me two minutes.

You are correct. This album was overlooked. George was pretty upset that he had to re-write some tunes due to Warner not liking some of his low key songs and three of them were deleted and replaced with new ones. They even rejected his original cover. 

I like this album especially 'That Which I have Lost' (great guitar playing by him) and of course 'All Those Years Ago' (he does a great version of that song on the 'Live In Japan' album)

I'm another one who thinks that this is a great (and often over-looked) album.

I really enjoy All Those Years Ago and Life Itself. Poor George was always underrated, if you ask me...

All day long I'm sitting singing songs for everyone.

Most artists would have been overshadowed by Lennon & McCartney, it would be difficult enough with just one but both.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13a-hard-days-night-ringo-6One of the most pleasing things is that for the early 70's, up to '73/'74 George was the most succesful of the 4. Even Ringo got his chance to shine for a while.a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

He told us not to get overwhelmed by grief and whatever thoughts we have... to keep them happy, because any thoughts we have of him will travel to him wherever he is. (John Lennon - 27/8/67)
