‘Try Some, Buy Some’ is the ninth song on George Harrison’s fourth solo album Living In The Material World.

Harrison gave the song to Ronnie Spector, for a planned comeback album to be released by Apple Records. A handful of songs were produced by her husband Phil Spector before the project ended. See more…

‘Try Some, Buy Some’ was written on the organ and as I don’t know the instruments well enough I got into all these complications. With keyboards you can do changes which you can’t really do well or at all on the guitar; you can move the bass line down and keep changing your right hand forward, changing the different notes, and this tune was based on these weird chords that I got. I couldn’t play both parts (left and right hand) at the same time and I had a friend write it down for me – as I don’t write notation.
Someone said try some
I tried some
Now buy some
I bought some

Even though the words are mundane if the attitude is directed back towards the source, then it it becomes more spiritual for me and has more meaning, even though it can still be regarded as a simple tune.
