Voldar: Don't waste your money on 'George Harrison: The Lowdown' A new CD set about George Harrison called УGeorge Harrison: The LowdownФ 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 УMaximum George Harrison,Ф 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 УGeorge Harrison: The Inteview.Ф 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 УWelcome to disc 3,Ф giving away this is a repackage from a past and bigger set. And it is. It's disc 3 from УThe Beatles: As It Happened,Ф an interview set that's been around for many years and which is advertised in the booklet for УMaximum George Harrison.Ф 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 УGeorge Harrison: The LowdownФ 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 — таких фото - иконы писать,а не то что статуи лепить. (—) 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: УI Want to Tell YouФ (1966) As the BeatlesТ career progressed, George Harrison gradually developed into a first-class songwriter on a par with the formidable John Lennon/Paul McCartney partnership. One of HarrisonТs more unusual compositions, УI Want to Tell You,Ф fits in perfectly with RevolverТs experimental vibe. The pounding piano, pervasive dissonance, and a subtle reference to HarrisonТs increasing interest in Indian music and culture add up to a classic and offbeat track. In 1980, Harrison described the lyrics as addressing Уthe avalanche of thoughts that are so hard to write down or say or transmit.Ф Indeed, the verses paint a picture of someone constantly struggling with language. УMy head is filled with things to say,Ф Harrison sings, but Уall those words they seem to slip away.Ф He fears offending the person heТs having the conversation with, explaining that Уif I seem to act unkind, itТs only me, itТs not my mind that is confusing things.Ф 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 УI feel hung up and I donТt know why; I donТt mind, I could wait forever Ч IТve got time.Ф That sentiment fits in well with other songs on the album, as Lennon also advocates a laid-back lifestyles without worries in tracks like УTomorrow Never KnowsФ (УTurn off your mind, relax and float downstreamФ and УSurrender to the voidФ) and УIТm Only SleepingФ (УKeeping an eye on the world going by my window Е taking my timeФ). While HarrisonТs lyrics are clever, the instrumentation further distinguishes УI Want to Tell YouФ from other rock songs of the time. The galloping piano accents the rhythm through dissonant harmonies, and Ringo StarrТs drumming easily navigates through some offbeat tempos. According to Allan K. Pollack, author of the УNotes OnФ series, Starr re-energizes the track with his driving percussion. УIf 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,Ф 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 УEight Days A Week,Ф the track gradually fades in, this time over the distinctive guitar riff. Even more interesting, the ending fades out over the repeated phrase УIТve got time,Ф and McCartney adds an unusual touch. As the sound fades, McCartney breaks into, as Pollack states, Уfree Indian-flavored melisma.Ф In other words, he sang the word УtimeФ 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 LewisohnТs seminal work The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions, the cutТs working titles included УGranny Smith,Ф УLaxtonТs SuperbФ (another type of apple, foreshadowing later years) and УI DonТt Know.Ф On June 2, 1966, the Beatles entered the studio to lay down virtually all the trackТs elements; they put the finishing touches on УI Want to Tell YouФ the following day. Mixing was completed on June 6. УI Want to Tell YouФ 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 Ч 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 УI Want to Tell YouФ is finally receiving deserved recognition for its sophisticated arrangement and HarrisonТs creativity in manipulating language. http://somethingelsereviews.com/2012/08/08/deep-beatles-i-want-to-tell-you-1966/

George HarrisonТs 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 AustraliaТs Hamilton Island in 1987. They planted the property with dense tropical vegetation. УGeorge always had a major conflict between the trees and the views,Ф says Olivia Harrison. УEvery few years I would persuade him to cut back some foliage to reclaim the views.Ф The couple first visited the island for the Australian Grand Prix. УI wasnТt at all enthused,Ф Harrison remembers. УBut one visit to the Whitsunday Islands opened up a continent entirely new to both of us.Ф The musician worked closely with landscape designer Malcolm Hunt on the gardens and pool area. УGeorge handpicked the big boulders from around the island,Ф says Harrison. The compound has three guest huts, at right, and the main house. УGeorge sketched his ideas for Roger Parkin, the architect, and together they designed the house,Ф says Harrison. Waterfalls feed into the organically shaped pool. УWe swam a lot in the natural ponds in Hawaii and tried to create that feeling.Ф http://www.architecturaldigest.com/celebrity-homes/2007/george-harrison-home-slideshow#slide=9
Voldar: 25 Years Ago: George Harrison Releases СCloud NineТ For most of the Т80s, George Harrison seemed content to let Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr represent the surviving Beatles on the pop charts Ч but that changed in a big way with the release of his 10th studio album, СCloud Nine.Т By the time СCloud NineТ debuted on Nov. 2, 1987, HarrisonТs solo career had been more or less on hiatus for five years; he hadnТt released a proper album since the poorly received СGone TroppoТ 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 hadnТt 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 HarrisonТs home studio, the duo enlisted a top-shelf corps of musicians to help them bring СCloud NineТ 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 СGot My Mind Set on You.Т Released as the albumТs leadoff single a little under a month before СCloud NineТ arrived in stores, СGot My Mind Set on YouТ topped the Billboard charts in the U.S. and peaked at No. 2 in HarrisonТs native UK, reaffirming his status as a viable recording artist and giving him his biggest hit since СGive Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)Т reached No. 1 in 1973. While none of the albumТs subsequent singles would achieve similar success Ч the most successful of the bunch, the Beatles nostalgia number СWhen We Was Fab,Т broke the Top 40 Ч СCloud NineТ 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: СHandle With Care.Т Sadly, although Harrison went on to record a pair of albums with the Wilburys, СCloud NineТ would ultimately remain the last album of new material heТd release during his lifetime. His final studio set, СBrainwashed,Т didnТt come out until 2002 Ч 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 HarrisonТs Final Album, СBrainwashed,Т Released Celebrating its 10th anniversary this week is George HarrisonСs understated and deeply beautiful СBrainwashed,Т the famed guitarist and former BeatleСs eleventh Ч and, tragically, final Ч studio album. Though СBrainwashedТ is indeed a collection of George Harrison-penned songs, itТs technically a posthumous set, released almost one year after the legendary songwriterТs 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 Ч but СBrainwashedТ wouldnТt exist if not for the efforts of producer-instrumentalist (and longtime Harrison collaborator) Jeff Lynne and Dhani Harrison, GeorgeТs son. The seeds of СBrainwashedТ were planted as early as 1988, when Harrison originally wrote the driving pop anthem СAny RoadТ (which he whipped together during a video shoot for his 1987 single СThis is LoveТ). With 1987′s Jeff Lynne-produced СCloud Nine,Т 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, СBrainwashedТ remained on the back-burner, but its progress was halted by HarrisonТs 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 HarrisonТs death on Nov. 29, 2001, Lynne and Dhani Harrison took charge of the albumТs production, overdubbing any remaining vocals and instrumentation to complete the songs as Harrison requested. Phenomenally, СBrainwashedТ never sounds Ч even for a second Ч 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 HarrisonТs writing to breathe freely Ч like on the tongue-in-cheek blues-pop of СP2 Vatican Blues (Last Saturday Night)С or the gently atmospheric folk of СStuck Inside a Cloud.Т ThereТs plenty of pain stirring under the surface, too, if you look for it. ItТs difficult not to get choked up on СCloud,Т as Harrison sings, УNever been so crazy, but IТve never felt so sure / I wish I had the answer to give, donТt even have the cure.Ф УThe album was very cathartic for me,Ф Dhani Harrison said during a 2002 CBC interview. ФAs 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 whatТs been happening over the last few years. Doing the recordings was great and wonderful and really sad as well Е It was a very positive thing to have done so soon after his death.Ф Though itТs been a decade since its release, СBrainwashedТ remains a tuneful, tasteful source of comfort Ч a loving swan song from one of rockТs finest talents. http://ultimateclassicrock.com/george-harrison-brainwashed-album-released/
