What if George Harrison had released a solo album in 1969, while the Beatles were still together?

I’ve got a blog that tackles lost or unreleased albums by the artists I enjoy, and I’ve recently tackled one I think you people would enjoy: a 1969 George Harrison solo album.
 
As most of you who have seen Get Back probably know, at one point John suggested that George record a solo album to “let all of his songs out” and come back reenergized for the next Beatles project. For a myriad of reasons, this ended up not happening, even if Harrison seemed to favor this idea and even held a solo demo session on his birthday that February.
 
So, in order to create this fantasy album, I put together the best songs George wrote between 1966 and May 1969 that weren’t used by the Beatles, and to avoid the heavily Spectorized and reverb-y sound of the All Things Must Pass album, only used alternate takes of the songs. Here’s what I ended up with:
 
Image Enlarger
 
 
What Is Life ? (Take 1)
Let It Down (Take 1)
Wah-Wah (Take 1)
Window, Window (Day 2 Demo)
 
If you want to read more/listen to the album, you can find it …
 
Enjoy!

Yes, RN, is correct, @GlassOnion. I took the link of your post.

If I were you, I’d take that link off the blog post too. Maybe make a YouTube playlist instead. You don’t want Olivia and Dhani to send their lawyers your way.
