Voldar: Don't waste your money on 'George Harrison: The Lowdown' A new CD set about George Harrison called George Harrison: The Lowdown popped up on Amazon recently. Without having heard it, we did something we rarely do. We bought it. We usually know better with these unauthorized sets. Most of them are usually repackages. In this case, that is definitely true. View slideshow: "George Harrison: The Lowdown" The new packaging hides the fact that both of the discs have been out before. Half of the set is Maximum George Harrison, an CD biography from Chrome Dreams that's been around since at least 2002. It's so memorable no one has reviewed it on Amazon. The disc, a CD biography with a mini poster, is included fully shrink wrapped. The other half is called George Harrison: The Inteview. It's a single CD with a 74 minute mishmash of various audio clips. The CD carries a copyright date of 2011. But the disc begins Welcome to disc 3, giving away this is a repackage from a past and bigger set. And it is. It's disc 3 from The Beatles: As It Happened, an interview set that's been around for many years and which is advertised in the booklet for Maximum George Harrison. The pictures on the new CD are lousy. On the back side, George looks like he's stoned. In any event, there's really no 'lowdown' on George Harrison: The Lowdown and no reason to waste your money. http://www.examiner.com/review/don-t-waste-your-money-on-george-harrison-the-lowdown

Voldar: Petition for George Harrison statue in Henley-on-Thames - , . () A petition calling for a George Harrison statue to be erected in the town where he lived until his death in 2001 has been launched. James Lambert, 42, from Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, started the petition to recognise the former Beatle's links to the town. He said: "He really is an icon in Henley. "It seems strange that nothing has been created to acknowledge his presence and the work that he did for the town." Mr Lambert said he envisaged a statue similar to the one of Roosevelt and Churchill sat on a bench on Bonn Street in London. Harrison, who wrote the hits Something and My Sweet Lord, moved to the town in the 1970s when he bought a large stately home called Friar Park and saved it from demolition. "George really got involved in a lot of community matters," Mr Lambert said. "He helped to try and save the local cinema, he worked with a lot of local businesses and communities to try and raise their profiles... he rescued the local garden centre by buying all the plants." Town councillor Martin Akehurst said he would support the idea. "I think there is a price to be paid for fame and yet still he was able to do a lot for the town," he said. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-oxfordshire-18490468

Voldar: Deep Beatles: I Want to Tell You (1966) As the Beatles career progressed, George Harrison gradually developed into a first-class songwriter on a par with the formidable John Lennon/Paul McCartney partnership. One of Harrisons more unusual compositions, I Want to Tell You, fits in perfectly with Revolvers experimental vibe. The pounding piano, pervasive dissonance, and a subtle reference to Harrisons increasing interest in Indian music and culture add up to a classic and offbeat track. In 1980, Harrison described the lyrics as addressing the avalanche of thoughts that are so hard to write down or say or transmit. Indeed, the verses paint a picture of someone constantly struggling with language. My head is filled with things to say, Harrison sings, but all those words they seem to slip away. He fears offending the person hes having the conversation with, explaining that if I seem to act unkind, its only me, its not my mind that is confusing things. His mind is clear and pure, but the body cannot move as quickly as the mind. For me, the best lines in the song remain I feel hung up and I dont know why; I dont mind, I could wait forever Ive got time. That sentiment fits in well with other songs on the album, as Lennon also advocates a laid-back lifestyles without worries in tracks like Tomorrow Never Knows (Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream and Surrender to the void) and Im Only Sleeping (Keeping an eye on the world going by my window taking my time). While Harrisons lyrics are clever, the instrumentation further distinguishes I Want to Tell You from other rock songs of the time. The galloping piano accents the rhythm through dissonant harmonies, and Ringo Starrs drumming easily navigates through some offbeat tempos. According to Allan K. Pollack, author of the Notes On series, Starr re-energizes the track with his driving percussion. If you feel the momentum beginning to sag toward the end of this section, dig how that sudden burst of rapid triplets at the very end of the bridge helps to re-jump-start your momentum for the verse that follows, writes Pollack. Other percussion can be heard, including tambourine and handclaps. As usual, the Lennon/McCartney/Harrison vocal harmonies sound tight, often singing entire lines instead of emphasizing certain words. As with many Beatles songs, the group experiments with beginnings and endings. Similar to Eight Days A Week, the track gradually fades in, this time over the distinctive guitar riff. Even more interesting, the ending fades out over the repeated phrase Ive got time, and McCartney adds an unusual touch. As the sound fades, McCartney breaks into, as Pollack states, free Indian-flavored melisma. In other words, he sang the word time while oscillating among various notes. The move adds a touch of sophistication and world-music influence to the rock track. Harrison often found it difficult to title his songs; according to Mark Lewisohns seminal work The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions, the cuts working titles included Granny Smith, Laxtons Superb (another type of apple, foreshadowing later years) and I Dont Know. On June 2, 1966, the Beatles entered the studio to lay down virtually all the tracks elements; they put the finishing touches on I Want to Tell You the following day. Mixing was completed on June 6. I Want to Tell You was never released as a single, and lingered in relative album track obscurity until years later. While touring in Japan with Eric Clapton in 1992, Harrison resurrected the song to the delight of audiences. That version, which features extended guitar solos, appeared on the Live in Japan album chronicling the brief tour. Appropriately, ELO founder and frequent Harrison collaborator Jeff Lynne performed the track at the Concert for George ten years later. It may have taken over four decades, but I Want to Tell You is finally receiving deserved recognition for its sophisticated arrangement and Harrisons creativity in manipulating language. http://somethingelsereviews.com/2012/08/08/deep-beatles-i-want-to-tell-you-1966/

Voldar: . George Harrisons Haven The Australian Home of the Late Beatle and his Wife George Harrison, the Beatles lead guitarist who died in 2001, and his wife, Olivia, built an isolated sanctuary on Australias Hamilton Island in 1987. They planted the property with dense tropical vegetation. George always had a major conflict between the trees and the views, says Olivia Harrison. Every few years I would persuade him to cut back some foliage to reclaim the views. The couple first visited the island for the Australian Grand Prix. I wasnt at all enthused, Harrison remembers. But one visit to the Whitsunday Islands opened up a continent entirely new to both of us. The musician worked closely with landscape designer Malcolm Hunt on the gardens and pool area. George handpicked the big boulders from around the island, says Harrison. The compound has three guest huts, at right, and the main house. George sketched his ideas for Roger Parkin, the architect, and together they designed the house, says Harrison. Waterfalls feed into the organically shaped pool. We swam a lot in the natural ponds in Hawaii and tried to create that feeling. http://www.architecturaldigest.com/celebrity-homes/2007/george-harrison-home-slideshow#slide=9

Voldar: 25 Years Ago: George Harrison Releases Cloud Nine For most of the 80s, George Harrison seemed content to let Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr represent the surviving Beatles on the pop charts but that changed in a big way with the release of his 10th studio album, Cloud Nine. By the time Cloud Nine debuted on Nov. 2, 1987, Harrisons solo career had been more or less on hiatus for five years; he hadnt released a proper album since the poorly received Gone Troppo in 1982, and in the intervening years, he seemed more interested in other pursuits, such as his production company, Handmade Films. Happily for his fans, however, Harrison hadnt lost the musical bug, and in late 1986, he hired Electric Light Orchestra frontman Jeff Lynne to help supervise the sessions for what would become his wildly successful comeback effort. Settling into Harrisons home studio, the duo enlisted a top-shelf corps of musicians to help them bring Cloud Nine to life, including famous friends (Eric Clapton and Elton John), session ringers (drummer Jim Keltner, percussionist Ray Cooper, and sax player Jim Horn), and a former bandmate (Starr). The end result was an 11-song set of some of the loosest, most energetic music Harrison had turned out in years, including the surprise hit Got My Mind Set on You. Released as the albums leadoff single a little under a month before Cloud Nine arrived in stores, Got My Mind Set on You topped the Billboard charts in the U.S. and peaked at No. 2 in Harrisons native UK, reaffirming his status as a viable recording artist and giving him his biggest hit since Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth) reached No. 1 in 1973. While none of the albums subsequent singles would achieve similar success the most successful of the bunch, the Beatles nostalgia number When We Was Fab, broke the Top 40 Cloud Nine attained further significance by presaging a period of renewed creativity for Harrison, who unwittingly founded the Traveling Wilburys when he got together with Lynne, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty to record the track that was supposed to be a B-side: Handle With Care. Sadly, although Harrison went on to record a pair of albums with the Wilburys, Cloud Nine would ultimately remain the last album of new material hed release during his lifetime. His final studio set, Brainwashed, didnt come out until 2002 a year after Harrison succumbed to cancer at the age of 58. http://ultimateclassicrock.com/george-harrison-releases-cloud-nine/

Voldar: 10 Years Ago: George Harrisons Final Album, Brainwashed, Released Celebrating its 10th anniversary this week is George Harrisons understated and deeply beautiful Brainwashed, the famed guitarist and former Beatles eleventh and, tragically, final studio album. Though Brainwashed is indeed a collection of George Harrison-penned songs, its technically a posthumous set, released almost one year after the legendary songwriters death, following a lengthy battle with cancer. The songs are vintage Harrison, full of nimble chord progressions, tasteful slide-guitar solos, and warm vocal harmonies but Brainwashed wouldnt exist if not for the efforts of producer-instrumentalist (and longtime Harrison collaborator) Jeff Lynne and Dhani Harrison, Georges son. The seeds of Brainwashed were planted as early as 1988, when Harrison originally wrote the driving pop anthem Any Road (which he whipped together during a video shoot for his 1987 single This is Love). With 1987′s Jeff Lynne-produced Cloud Nine, Harrison had regained his critical and commercial standing, and he followed up that project by forming the supergroup Traveling Wilburys (along with Lynne, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty), who released two albums over the next few years. All the while, Brainwashed remained on the back-burner, but its progress was halted by Harrisons throat cancer diagnosis in 1997 and a knife attack from a mentally unstable fan in 1999. As the cancer spread to his lungs and, finally, his brain, Harrison still charged forward on his music, keeping specific instructions about how the songs and production should be carried out, even recording vocal melodies intended as string arrangements. After Harrisons death on Nov. 29, 2001, Lynne and Dhani Harrison took charge of the albums production, overdubbing any remaining vocals and instrumentation to complete the songs as Harrison requested. Phenomenally, Brainwashed never sounds even for a second like an awkward patchwork. Lynne, typically known for his grandiose, symphonic productions with ELO, kept the songs tight and spacious, allowing the unhurried charm and graceful humor of Harrisons writing to breathe freely like on the tongue-in-cheek blues-pop of P2 Vatican Blues (Last Saturday Night) or the gently atmospheric folk of Stuck Inside a Cloud. Theres plenty of pain stirring under the surface, too, if you look for it. Its difficult not to get choked up on Cloud, as Harrison sings, Never been so crazy, but Ive never felt so sure / I wish I had the answer to give, dont even have the cure. The album was very cathartic for me, Dhani Harrison said during a 2002 CBC interview. As I said, it was done at the right time. I dealt with a lot of this as it happened and never shied away from any of the reality of whats been happening over the last few years. Doing the recordings was great and wonderful and really sad as well It was a very positive thing to have done so soon after his death. Though its been a decade since its release, Brainwashed remains a tuneful, tasteful source of comfort a loving swan song from one of rocks finest talents. http://ultimateclassicrock.com/george-harrison-brainwashed-album-released/
