George Harrison - George Harrison (1979) Retail CD
It is an unfortunate fact that following the release of Living in the Material World George Harrson suffered a critical backlash. This was compounded by the Dark Horse album and the disastrous tour that was meant to promote it.Harrison never really recovered his reputation in spite of releasing some absolute gems on his subsequent releases. I believe the time has now come for a radical reappraisal of some of his post-Beatles albums and I cannot think of a better place to begin than with the George Harrison album.Material World and Dark Horse were slammed in part because of Harrisons percievedmore… tendency to come over as humourless and moralising. Undoubtedly this was true but to dwell only on these aspects of his personality is misleading. On George Harrison we see the warmth and humour of a man shedding the somewhat gloomy aftermath of the immediate post Beatles years. The tongue in cheek humour of Here Comes The Moon reveals a much more contented Harrison. As always George surrounded himself with only the best musicians and on the first track, Love Comes To Everyone Stevie Winwood makes a welcome contribution with his distinctive style pervading the entire song.The sensitive side of Harrison that produced the Beatles classic Something, also comes to the fore in the shape of the beautiful Your Love is Forever. If this song had been on a Beatles album I have no doubt it would have recieved a lot more attention that it has. Looking for a gem to discover in the solo Beatles back catalogue? Then look no further,this is the song for you.In stark contrast to his religious beliefs was Harrisons passion for motor-racing. Such was the damage done to his image by the Material World album that it seemed almost beyond belief that he should enjooy such a past time. Yet on the song Faster, Harrison, we learn has heroes other than Carl Perkins or Del Shannon. His admiration for Grand Prix drivers makes for an interesting contrast to his more philosophical side.Not that it is lacking! Check out If You Believe, or Blow Away to find evidence of that side of the Quiet One's personality. He's even feeling so laid back that he delves back to his Beatles days to dig out what was at the time an unreleased gem entitled Not Guilty. Subsequently this has been made available on the Beatles Anthology series but here it is much lighter in tone, indicating the peace of mind George had discovered.All in all George Harrison is perhaps the work of a more relaxed man who has understood how to project himself positively . Gone is the heavyness of some of his ill considered earlier albums. Now if only this had been released after All Things Must Pass it is possible that George's solo career may never have flagged. Hindsights a wonderful thing!
