It's the same style as before but unlike that previous box, the easily breakable jewel cases have been dispensed with and each is in the 'new standard' card case, which I think is better. Included is a 48 page glossy book with plenty of unseen photos (tape boxes included) and a decent narrative from Kevin Howlett, and each disc, bar 'All Things Must Pass', which has no booklet or text, and 'Living In The Material World', contains an essay by the same author.
A fusion of Indian and Western music. Though it might not sound appealing, and it probably works better in conjunction with the film, there are some decent tunes here. Phasing guitars, honky-tonk piano and banjos all mix with sitars, tablas, tamburas, etc. to produce some country, psychedelic, spy music and some heavy (for the time) stuff, too. It's not as bad as you might think. Harrison does play on this, alongside the Remo 4, Eric Clapton, Ringo and others. Of the three bonus tracks, the most interesting, in title at least, is 'The Inner Light'. It's an alternate instrumental take, though not wildly different, with some preceding studio chatter.Read more ›
One has to wonder at the infighting which occurred when McCartney wanted to release his eponymous solo album in 1970. Lennon and others had fits over this, but apparently no one uttered a word when George released WONDERWALL MUSIC in November-December (UK and then USA releases) of ’68. Water under the bridge now, matey’s. Classified as a “soundtrack” album (to the odd and spacey indie film Wonderwall), this work just might be considered the very first “world music” album released long before the term would become vogue.Read more ›

George Harrison's Apple Years boxset is amazing. Each album sounds incredible, and has faithfully reproduced the original LP artwork and inner slip covers. Read morePublished 13 months ago by D. Lanterman
