While I have not heard much from 1974's DARK HORSE & 1975's EXTRA TEXTURE, the fact most fans do not hold these albums in very high esteem has already convinced me to hold off purchasing them until further notice. Taking that into consideration, George Harrison probably considered his next album to be a bit of a rebirth, what with a new distribution deal for his Dark Horse label & the voice problems that had marred DARK HORSE the album long gone. Of course, the album was to have been released on his 33 & 1/3rd birthday (in June of 1976), but was delayed until near the end of the year. When it did arrive however, it was clear THIRTY THREE & 1/3 was some of George's strongest work (solo or with the Beatles) in some time.

As some reviewers have rightfully claimed, George did not seem to care very much for chart success, unlike Sir Paul McCartney who owes his status as one of the richest entertainers in the world to constantly shooting for the top of the charts. So while his singles after 1973's #1 "Give Me Love [Give Me Peace On Earth]" only fared modestly well (he would not see the top 10 again for 8 years), we could be sure George was not losing any sleep over it. As long as he made music that reflected his inner being & beliefs, the commercial success was just gravy. That being said, THIRTY THREE & 1/3 just happens to be a personal effort with enough universality to win over the marketplace (evidenced by 2 top 40 hits).

Thanks to the highly insightful liner notes (from George's autobiography I ME MINE, which I must get someday), the songs on THIRTY THREE & 1/3 show just how his ideas for material can come from almost anywhere.

This is the first album I ever bought with my own money.

I don't remember the time or place. It was definitely 1976, and it might have been SEARS. But I remember that by 1976, I was convinced that George Harrison just might be the coolest human being on the planet (apart from Batman, my grandparents, and whatever else is important to a 9 year old.) It was either hearing WITHIN YOU WITHOUT YOU or I ME MINE years before this that made a 7 year old think, this guy is saying something. I don't know what it is yet, but he's saying something that just might help. And it was from that point on that my attention and focus went to George Harrison in The Beatles, and following his solo career. I have more Harrison albums than Beatles albums.

Why was this one the first album I ever bought? Well, because I had the pocket money! But other than that, I remember hearing 'This Song' and 'Crackerbox Palace' on the radio that year, and really liking what Harrison was doing, even though the year 1976 suggests I could have listened to any number of artists. Harrison stood out, and he has for years in my world.

I remember waiting impatiently for his appearance on Saturday Night Live like it was Christmas, and you know how long that takes in a kid's mind and mental calendar. Harrison remains my one and only true musical idol. There are other artists I respect, admire, love and enjoy, but nowhere near how I feel about George Harrison.

Oh yeah the album!

Though I'm displeased with the remaster, I'm glad this album is back out on the shelves. My displeasure comes from Harrison's albums do not need to be made LOUDER, which is what this remaster does.

George Harrison's 33 & 1/3 is the most melodic solo Beatles album. Even more so than Band on The Run, Ram, Imagine or Mind Games, Thirty-three and a Third is pure melody. Each tune is crafted with exquisite elegance & melodic sophistication, and George's vocals & guitar playing are at their very best.
There simply isn't a weak tune to be found here. "Woman Don't You Cry For Me" features some of Harrison's best slide work. "Dear One" is haunting in the great Harrisong tradition of "Long, Long, Long" and "Who Can See It." "Beautiful Girl" is an absolutely gorgeous song, with fantastic singing.
"This Song" is a driving tune full of acerbic comment & great guitar solos. "See Yourself" is an elegant, melodic song that effortlessly jumps through different time signatures. "It's What You Value" has a great R & B groove, while Harrison's version of "True Love" is, in my opinion, definitive.
"Pure Smokey" is a beautiful song with some absolutely sublime guitar solos; this is Harrison's most underrated song. "Crackerbox Palace" was a major U.S. hit, and deservedly so. With a catchy Reggae groove and fantastic guitar work, it's a classic. And as far as underrated love songs go, "Learning How To Love You" may be the ultimate example. This is truly an incredible song, and had it been released by the Beatles it would now be a standard.
The bonus "Tears Of The World" is actually from the Somewhere In England era. With it's serious social comment & a memorable melody, it's still a very welcome addition to 33 & 1/3. Enjoy!
