This is by far IMO, the greatest solo record by any of
the Beatles. George had been saving it up all those
years and when the Beatles finally split, boy did he
just blossom as a songwriter, guitarist, and singer.
This is definitely a must for any die hard Beatles
fans. The album has some of the most beautiful
melodies ever written on it: 'Behind that locked Door',
'I Live For You', 'Isn't it a Pity', 'All Things Must
Pass' all those songs and the others on the album
have such beautiful and mezmerizing melodies......it
just goes on and on. And the words to the
songs are all so poetic and full of truth, in the sense
that George's writing seems to portray social ideas
or relationship ideals and the like in such a
poetic/simplistic manner that makes
the songs so much more intriguing to listen to. A
good example would be the song Isn't it A
Pity......."Isn't it a pity, now isn't it a shame, how we
break each other's hearts, and cause each other
pain, how we take each other's love w/out thinking
anymore, forgetting to give back........" and the melody
he puts behind those words just absoloutley makes
you want to sob like a baby. This album is also a
must for anyone who wants to know how to play real
melodic slide guitar. This album was the true
emergence of George Harrison as a slide guitarist
but it sounds almost as if he'd been playing and
perfecting the art of slide playing his whole life.
Simply put, there is too much to be said about this
album for me to type it all. So you'll just have to go
pick up a copy for yourself and discover the 'real'
One of my top ten albums.........thank you George for
this marvelous album!
