Let's do some speculation, always fun.

Do you think we'll ever get an Early Takes Volume 2? We know there are probably 100s of George ditties and unfinished tracks in Friar Park and that Giles in like 2012 was going through them. Yet, nothing has come from then. Are there any demos of songs (whether they exist or not) that you'd like to hear? I'm kinda sad we've got none of the Brainwashed tracks that George left Dhani and Jeff to make sense of. 

Will we ever get his song Valentine? It sounds like it's completed and is just looking to be released, heck it was even meant to be on Brainwashed.

"Among the numerous new songs he unveils are Valentine, a potent power ballad that sounds like one of his cleverest, hit-destined excursions... Later in that same interview, George states 'in my music I just sing a rock and roll song about the power of love, on Valentine..."
Timothy White (Billboard - July 1999)
"Traffic member Jim Capaldi and veteran session drummer Jim Keltner laid down backing tracks for the [Brainwashed] set, which is expected to feature such songs as Valentine, Pisces Fish, and the title cut, Brainwashed, a caustic rock soliloquy about his former manager."
Jonathan Cohen (Billboard - September 09, 2002)

 

And finally, Dhani has said there's no proper recording of the Japanese concerts so we're never going to get them BUT there is a professional recording of at least one of his Dark Horse tour concerts AND it has George narrating at least parts of it. 

 

So out of those 3, which would you prefer to see?

I'd love an Early Takes Vol. 2 (and perhaps a Vol. 3? There are certainly enough songs). I was incredibly disappointed after I first discovered Vol. 1 to find that there were no others because Vol. 1 was so amazing (since then, I have found a lot of the same versions of the same songs from ATMP on various bootlegs such as Beware Of ABKCO and All Things Must Pass Naked), but Vol. 1 has a couple of songs that I really appreciated (and have yet to find anywhere else).

(I hope this post is somewhat coherent and makes some degree of sense, because it turns out staying up most of the night reading is terrible for your brain).

Early Takes two has to be on its way. Early Takes one is excruciatingly short. Let’s get a box set

If we believe Dhani, there is plenty of stuff that is ready for release. It's just Universal doesn't want to release them because maybe George isn't profitable or they're planning some bigger event in the future (like the Scorcese documentary) to do a joint release but I don't know.

 

If the Harrison estate would like to hire me, even just for social media, I'm here and I'm willing to get paid to post George photos every day.

Ok lads I did a quick Google, it's a company called Versus Creative based in LA who run George's accounts. They run or cooperate with a few other accounts (the most famous ones being Spotify, Solange, and American Flag Football League). It's a teeny company, only has 7 employees if LinkedIn is to go by.

My CV is being sent in as we type 😉

Little gem for some of you who haven't explored Bootleg Harrison. 'Everybody, Nobody', which evolved into the more well known Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll).

 

 

I guess what I'm trying to say with this video is GIVE US 'EARLY TAKES VOLUME 2', DAMMIT!

Just reading an issue of Classic Rock magazine, and there's an interview with a guy called Randy Bachman,who was in a band called the Guess Who, and he talks about George. Here's the relevant bits (@Beatlebug I thought you in particular might like it):

I never got to meet George,but I phoned him once. It was 1970, and I had left the Guess Who.  The American Woman album and single were number 1,but I had a gall bladder problem and had to leave. Our publicist Richie Yorke also worked with Derek Taylor,the Beatles publicist. He said "the band are breaking up, George is starting a new band,why don't you call him? Here's his number". Wow! So I phone him. A really sweet female voice answers,who i assume is Patti Boyd. I say "it's Randy Bachman, I got your number from Ritchie Yorke, and I'd like to speak with George". She puts down the phone, and maybe 40 seconds later George comes to the phone. He's got this low growl. "Winnipeg? Is that where Winnie the Pooh is from?" He says he's heard American Woman - "Good song,good solo" but he says he's already got his band together. "And my guitarist is my best friend,who I'm sure you know,Eric". Oh yeah,Eric. 

And that was it. My one encounter with George Harrison .
