This one is my steadfast favourite out of George's albums. Other rankings change but I always have a soft spot for this one.

I’m a big fan of the electric piano on Not Guilty . The Beatles outtake is great too, but this version  has a much smoother feel.

I still need to hear the Beatles' version but I agree that Not Guilty is amazing. So is Soft-Hearted Hana. And, y'know, every other song on the album...

Good bass on this one, definitely more enthusiastic. Amazing.

Ahhh I know and it's so underrated too. Well, at least in my experience it is-- I have yet to meet someone IRL who has listened to this album. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

I've been really digging Faster.  It's kind of a fun tune.  And of course Blow Away, and Dark Sweet Lady.

I've just published a feature on this album. See here.

I can't say I really love it. Late 70s George was really not my thing. But hey, onwards to the next one…

Can buy me love! Please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes
Or buy my paperback/ebook! Riding So High – The Beatles and Drugs

Don't miss The Bowie Bible – now live!

Just love it. It contains some of his most melodically beautiful songs and gives off a warm and calming vibe. Side 1 is probably his best set of songs outside of ATMP

He sounds so happy and content here. The album has real soul to it.

The later George albums required multiple listens before I was able to appreciate them. "Your Love is Forever" is a great song.
