I think George's biggest problem with the Anthology was he didn't want to do it without John there. I remember reading that at one point Paul wanted to play Let It Be, but George refused to do it without John, so they didn't. He was after all the one to say, "As far as I'm concerned, there won't be a Beatles reunion as long as John Lennon remains dead." While John was alive, he had said in the mid 70's that if the other three got together, he just hoped they'd invite him too.

Also, I think people exaggerate what was going on between George and Paul after The Beatles split. There's plenty of evidence to suggest they still loved each other dearly, but they were the Beatles with the most "brotherly" relationship, which is why they probably fought more (and obviously had clashing personalities).

As for George's bitterness...after reading transcripts from the tapes of the Get Back/Let It Be sessions and reading a lot about the relationship between George, John and Paul, I can't say I blame him. Those wounds were probably very deep and went beyond just the getting songs on an album issue. I'm sure being in that environment again and still being treated like the little brother brought back some unpleasant memories.
