    Wonderful collection of George's music, spanning his career and his life experience. You get a sense of the evolving person and how that evolution through the music is shared with the world. His thoughtful songs about God/life are beautiful hymns.

    The quality of the writing and the marriage of the instruments create an inviting state of peace for the listener. To close your eyes and drift into a deep appreciation for the lyrics, provides an opportunity to hear what really matters, giving of one self, giving back.
    The musical selection also let's you know through the journey of the music that life is never complete, the journey never ends, "look out kid it's what you did".

    Give George His Due

    First off I have all but one of these songs on various Harrison CD's. However, to get these songs remastered and in this package is still a good thing. The bonus track, "I don't want to do it", a Bob Dylan song he gave to George back in the late sixties, is the only song I don't have on CD. I still have the album it came from, believe it or not, it's a "Porky's" film that this song surfaced back in the eighties. Notable because George didn't play guitar on it, the guitar you hear is one Dave Edmunds! Beyond that the disc is full of great songs. The Beatles songs of Georges that are here are from the landmark live "Concert for Bangladesh". George's guitar sound is singular in tone and scope. I miss him as a performer and artist. Wish I could turn the clock back, when I listen to these songs I almost can.

    Deeply Moving Worth Every Second To Hear A Great Man Sing Once More

    When at age 6 I fell for the Music not the 'Guys' in the 'Fab Four'. Just knew like the baby I was they had an 'It' Factor.Later, when I heard,"Hear Comes the Sun", This Was so Happy! Smiling thru Tears of a tough day, all Made Sense. Now, Every Time this song is played, tho' infrequently on radio, I smile in Spite of the tears streaming down my face.Dearest George, Your Soul is singing the sweetest songs as an Angel now. Thank You...

    I had no doubt that this was going to be a great CD.

    George was and remains a great songwriter and truly missed. It is just so great to have all his hits on one CD. "Heavens got one hell of a band."

    more from this reviewer

    At the creative heart of the Beatles

    A reprise of some of his greatest Beatles hits that bring back wonderful memories. Another reason why they were and are the greatest and most creative musical group of all time

    Geoge can finally get his due as a songwriter and performer!

    George was largely underestimated as a songwriter and performer. In my opinion, this was largely because he did record a few heavy and basically dull albums in the late 70's. George fans should play this album for friends so that thay may realize George's talent. My one gripe is the inclusion of 4 live tracks of songs recorded with the Beatles. The producers should have stuck with George's post Beatle career and not left out such gems as "Wah Wah" and "Don't Let Me Wait too Long"
