5.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked and Undervalued March 17, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I love this CD! Many Harrison purists have scoffed at this one because it's not his best work -- but I found it a wonderful collection anyway. Although most of my favorite songs are also available from the CLOUD NINE collection, there was enough additional material to make it a worth while purchase -- especially CHEER DOWN which was only available on the LETAL WEAPON 2 soundtrack. This album was particularly hard to find! Get it while you can!

5.0 out of 5 stars Harrison's 2nd Best Of Collection Cheers! November 13, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is actually George Harrison's second "best of" collection. Culling his best from 1976 through to 1989, this represents a far more upbeat and varied series of songs than the former Beatle used to write. Harrison breaks away form the Beatles sound and even his early seventies Phil Spector period.
There are the usual big hits like, "Blow Away" and "Got My Mind Set On You", but there were plenty of other songs that were just more than quaint; these being "Crackerbox Palace", a lovely ditty and "Here Comes The Moon". Another big plus is the formerly unattainable "Cheer Down"; a great song previously only available on a soundtrack. The most endearing songs are the two lamentable, but joyous recollections of the Beatles days. "When We Was Fab" is almost like listening to a photo album of images and "All Those Years Ago" is a bouncy number with a great keyboard and guitar solo. As poignant as these are, George seemed to only look back in wonder and joy on those days.
This is a rare set and although there are sure to be future "best of" collections of George Harrison's work, many of these cuts will probably not make it. If you can find it, grab it.

5.0 out of 5 stars HARRISON'S GREATEST HITS VOL. 2 April 19, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This cd collection of the dark horse, is more complete what the best of george harrison, because contains more hits.
Best of dark horse includes the george solo's work in his own company, Dark Horse Records, which were distributed by Warner Brothers Records, and the The Best of George Harrison on Capitol / Apple Records, contains George's hits in the early years of his solo career, and with the Beatles / unfortunately not include all of his best work. So Best of Dark Horse, contains greatest hits of 1976-1989 years, like: BLOW AWAY, CRACKERBOX PALACE, CLOUD NINE, ALL THOSE YEARS AGO, LOVE COMES TO EVERYONE ........
The only glaring ommision i noticed was THIS SONG from the 33 1/3 album, wich is one of solo Harrison's best songs and was also a fairly big hit ins his own right.
This album is perfectly and wonderful!

3.0 out of 5 stars George Deserves Better! November 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
As a big fan of George Harrison's solo work, I think its a shame that one of his hit singles, as well as other lesser known gems, are not included in this "Best of Dark Horse" collection.

The most obvious song missing from this collection is the single "This Song", from the record "33 1/3." It's a catchy pop song that charted quite successfully in 1976. Why they chose to include more obscure songs in this collection and omit this one is truly baffling to me.

Also, two beautiful love songs, "Learning How to Love You" from the previously mentioned LP, as well as "Your Love is Forever" from the 1979 LP "George Harrison" deserved to have been included too. I honestly feel these are the two best love songs George Harrison ever wrote as a solo artist.

I'm sure if you are a Harrison fan you have other favorites that you wish were included on this CD. This collection is far from complete and doesn't include all his best music for this period.

I hope one day that this CD, along with the "Best of George Harrison" collection, will be permanently deleted from the Harrison catalog. In their place they should release a comprehensive "Best of" double CD collection that spans his ENTIRE solo career from 1970-2000, including his two Traveling Wilburys records.

I think George Harrison deserves a much better "Best of" collection that truly showcases his talent as a musician, singer and songwriter.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid collection! November 13, 2006
By A Fan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a solid collection of Harrison's work from 1976 to 1989 and is a nice compliment to "The Best Of George Harrison" (which covers his pre-1976 work). There is one major omission from this CD, "This Song" from the 33 1/3 album which was top 40 hit in 1976. Other than that, this CD contains all the highlights from the period.

However, Harrison's work deserves a new, comprehensive collection spanning his entire solo career with all his hits and important songs in a single collection! His work merits it and his fans deserve it!

A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
By 1989 George Harrison hadb been recording his music on his own lable, Dark Horse Records, for 13 years. He had also experienced a comeback in the music industry, with his first solo album in nearly five years, Cloud Nine and a collaboration with various other clebrities called The Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1, so now, with age cathing up, it was seemingly the perefet time for a solid recap of the Dark Horse Records years. To this end Harrison, or perhapse because he really wanted to retire, he compiled and released George Harrsion: The Best of Dark Horse, 1976-1989. Read on for the review. George certaintly suceeded this time and all of the songs are top notch George material. Favorites of mine include: Gone Troppo (1982), Got My Mind Set on You (1987), Cheer Down (1989), That's The Way it Goes (1982) and more. But there are three tracks in particular that I wanted to mention as I feel that at least two of them don't get as much credit and recognition as they deserve. The three tracks to which I refer are all from the 1989 period and two of them have not seen album release outside of this compilation. First off is Cheer Down (1989, by the way all three of these tracks are from 1989). Ths song was first heard in the 1989 movie Lethal Weapon 2 (great move, especially in directors cut version) and was made available on the soundtrack album for the film. With that soundtrack album ( and this compilation) out of print, this song has become very hard to find in its studio version ( there is a live version on the Live In Japan CD George did in 1991.) It's great! Read more ›
