5.0 out of 5 stars A very fine documentary tribute to George May 6, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese's documentary on the late Beatle George Harrison, GEORGE HARRISON: LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD, named after the singer's 1973 album of the same name, was released in the U.K. last fall on DVD and Blu-ray, and aired in the U.S. on HBO. Finally, the U.S. DVD/Blu-ray is out, and it is well worth the wait.

The film airs in two parts: Part 1 covers George's life from his Liverpool childhood through the height of Beatlemania and beyond. Part 2 begins with the White Album-era tensions between The Beatles, and the group's eventual split, then focuses on George's solo career and his personal life. There is one significant gap: the documentary seems to skip from his 1974 U.S. tour (essential unseen footage here) to the Traveling Wilburys era, and leaves out his Dark Horse Records solo work from 1976-1992, including his 1987 comeback album Cloud Nine and his 1991 tour of Japan with Eric Clapton. The Dark Horse Years 1976 - 1992 box set does fill these gaps, as does a recently released iPad Multi-Touch e-book on iTunes. The film's most glaring omission is during the segment on John Lennon's murder and its effect on George, which unfortunately does not mention Harrison's wonderful tribute song, "All Those Years Ago," recorded with the other surviving Beatles, which was a #2 hit for George in 1981.

5.0 out of 5 stars George Harrison - Living In the Material World June 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this complete set of George Harrison Living In The Material World because I wanted to have everything that was released for this film. I did buy the original hard back book Living In The Material World which is fabulous, but I wish that version of the book had been released in this set rather than the shortened version.

Almost two thirds of the film is about George when he was in the Beatles and the rest of the film is about him after the Beatles. Its too bad they didn't cover his life and solo career in as much detail as they did when he was a Beatle. It is almost like he did the All Things Must Pass LP and The Concert For Bengla Desh (concert/film/LP) then didn't do much after that. He toured the United States in 1974 and toured Japan in 1991 which they didn't cover very much. They didn't cover most of the records he released through out his life, but they did cover when he was in the Traveling Wilburys. One of the coolest things in the film was seeing when George and Paul signed paperwork ending the Beatles.

Yes, there was so much of his life from 1961 through 1970, but it would have been nice to see, hear and know what he did for the rest of his 30 years of life. It would have been nice to have the complete hard back book in this set as well as more music on the CD, but they had to delay the release here in the US because HBO had the rights to show the movie before it was released so to put the hard back book in it would have been like buying the same thing again. This set was released immediately in England and through out parts of the world when it was on HBO in the US, but we had to wait for 6 months to get this release.

Very happy with the deluxe box set. I think the price is great for what you get. My only disappointment is that the bonus interviews are quite short.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Quiet Beatle June 6, 2012
By Dan4456
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I waited with anticipation for the arrival of the George Harrison DVD/CD deluxe box set and have to say it is one of the most beautiful packages in my collection. My only complaint is with the official documentary. Rarely do I enjoy the bonus features more than the main title but in this case it is the extras, hands down. There is very little in the "Living In the Material World" official film that is revealing or unknown before and the majority of the video material has been previously seen. It is on disc two when the interview subjects get to open up and talk more freely.

The music is outstanding throughout and hearing the songs their early form makes the film desirable. As I mentioned earlier, the packaging, disc two and the Early Takes CD make it worth splurging with your lunch money. I look forward to Early Takes part two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful packaging, fabulous Biopic! November 1, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Coming from an obsessed Beatle/Dark Horse fan, I was expectedly excited to see this film and even more excited to learn that an album and book were slated to be released with the Blu-Ray Collector's Edition. I'm so happy with this, I know George himself would be sublimely touched by the attention to detail both in Martin Scorsese's film and the production quality of the collectible materials. This was lovingly created and executed. Same could be said for the shipping and condition of the package!

A resounding thanks!
