‘You’ is the opening track on George Harrison’s sixth solo album Extra Texture (Read All About It).

Written in 1970, Harrison recorded a demo of the song during the All Things Must Pass sessions. It was recorded properly in February 1971 at Abbey Road , when Harrison and Phil Spector were co-producing several songs for Ronnie Spector including ‘Try Some, Buy Some’. See more…

‘You’ was written for Phil Spector’s wife Ronnie. I wrote it and laid the track down with Leon Russell. I tried to write a Ronette sort of song. We never got to make a whole album because we only did four or five tracks before Phil fell over, and then he decided to release ‘Try Some, Buy Some’ as a single.

I forgot about it and years later dug the tape out and re-worked it, overdubbed on it and did it myself even though it was recorded in Ronnie’s register – a bit high for me.

Cracking song this, one of George’s best. I’d love to hear the original version with Ronnie Spector singing.
