This is probably my favorite George Harrison album.  I absolutely love it!

In "Mystical One", is it just me or does George sound like Ringo when he says "They say" at the very beginning of the song"

I think it's just you... 

I listened to this album again today, after not having heard it for a while. It's a lovely album, I think -- quite silly, but it's got this great vibe: happy, carefree, seaside holiday. a-hard-days-night-george-9 I think George just stopped caring after Somewhere In England and, in between travels, scraped some daft tunes together and tossed them out into the record-buying public. Not that many bought it... a-hard-days-night-paul-10

I love how much acoustic slide there is on this album! It's great to play along with. a-hard-days-night-george-9

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

Just the words "They say".  Doesn't it sound very vaguely sound like Ringo?

Yes, it sounds like Ringo.

When I first heard this album I thought WTF, but now it's one of my favorites.

This is the only post-Beatles album of George's that I have never listened to in ¿it's? entirety. The songs just don't really interest me too much. I like Baby Don't Run Away and I Really Love You. Those are the only ones I generally don't skip when I'm listening to George on shuffle, though I have been meaning to listen to the album lately as the songs don't seem as bad to me now as they did five years ago.

I Really Love You is one of my favorites!   @Little Piggy Dragonguy I love when George would pull out one of those obscure little oldies like this one and record it.  In fact, I kinda wish there were more!

He should have done a cover album of those like the other 3 lads.

@William Shears Campbell I just had that same exact thought! a-hard-days-night-george-9I imagine it would've been a little disappointing after ~10 years to finally get another Beatles album and have it be all covers though.  I bet it'd still sell like hot cakes anyway.

Fun fact: The cover for Gone Troppo was designed by Legs Larry Smith, drummer of The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band! Here he is talking about being in the Magical Mystery Tour film and George.

And yes, that is Neil Innes AKA Ron Nasty at 00:21
