I know Art of Dying was written around Revolver era, would have made a great addition to the album, you would just have to take away another George song.

And there were much of his All Things Must Pass album during the Get Back sessions and any other sessions. Let it Down and All Things Must Pass would have made great addition to Abbey Road or Let it Be, and also the great Isn't it a Pity. There is also Not Guilty and Sour Milk Sea from the White Album sessions.

So what do you think of George songs. I definitely would love to see more George songs on albums, but not sure John and Paul would allow that at all.

There's a version of 'Circles' around, as well as Sour Milk Sea which there is a demo of. I think the Beatles would have benefited from releasing All Things Must Pass, as well.

Forgot about Circles, maybe the Beatles should have put the White Album as a triple album.

Not Guilty. Does that count? I know it's from the Anthology, but I'm not exactly sure what your definition of a "George song" is…

What do you mean by "you don't know the definition of a George song is" it is a song written by George, if you have access to Youtube, you could look a bunch of his outtakes and most of is solo album All Things Must Pass was from the Beatles times. But you said you didn't listen to much of his solo stuff so…

Ooh, "Sour Milk Sea"! That Jackie Lomax version is great. I'd love to have heard a Beatles version, or even George solo.

To tell the truth, I really don't think I'd enjoy hearing Beatles versions of any of the ATMP songs that they attempted, "Isn't It A Pity" and whatever else. Maybe I'd change my mind if I'd heard any of the Get Back sessions attempts at them, which I haven't. But as it is, I can't separate those songs from their context of that big triple album. They seem too solemn to have been taken seriously by sardonic John and happy-go-lucky Paul, but they sound just right being sung by George and his backup choir with Phil Spector's cavernous wall of sound.

I just wasn't sure whether a "George song" is a solo song or any song written by him, as long as it wasn't on their studio albums or a single or anything like that. I guess it means solo George, then?

There's a version of Sour Milk Sea with George's vocals on it, I don't know if the Beatles recorded the instruments or not.

There was a demo of Sour Milk Sea recorded during the Kinfauns sessions. At the end of May 1968 the group assembled at George's house to run through what they'd have available when they went into the studio to begin the new album.
