I'm not that convinced that George put much thought into his album covers so either 'Thirty-Three & 1/3' or 'George Harrison ' as both have some brightness to them ('Cloud 9' has far too much brightness on it, mainly from George's teeth), the only other good one is 'All Things Must Pass '. The alternate cover for 'Somewhere In England' is ghastly.

When I think of George's LP covers, this one always comes to mind...

Dark Horse and Wonderwall Music are my favourite covers for their surrealism. a-hard-days-night-george-9

I would have to say either Living in the Material World or Brainwashed. The hand on LMW always strikes me and it relates to the message of the album, while Brainwashed is really creative and bittersweet at the same time. I also really like the cover for Electronic Sound.

Extra Texture, because I like the texture, and because if we were allowed to change names still, I would sometimes be Extra Texture instead of Expert Textpert.

  

Some people have to spoil it for everyone else don't they?!?

 

Let's just ignore that I was 'one' of those people, right?


 

I really like George's preferred cover for Somewhere In England (instead of the boring bland one we got from Warner Bros.). He looks like he's wearing a Native American headdress.

I was one of them too.

Very little effort was put into his covers the only thing that I can think is mildly creative is Extra Texture 'OHNOTHIMAGEN'. The rest are pretty blasé and wouldn't win any awards.

 

In saying that I'll fight you on your opinion on the alternate cover for SIE, it's lovely.

 

Nobody did Day 14 (shameful lads, shameful), so I'll do it:

 

Late Valentine's Day loveliness with Olivia's favourite song by George:

 

 

It is definitely not the most romantic song but ahmmm she liked it so here it is!

It is such a bop of a song, especially when the guitar comes in.

 

Definitely an underappreciated Beatles song.

Not to be confused with his #1 single "Give Me Pots (Give Me Pans On Stove)", which was famously written for his housekeeper Miss O'Dell, who lent her name to the single's B side.
