GEORGE HARRISON Living In The Material World
Apple (2006)

George Harrison

This album was originally released in 1973 and now gets a lovingly packaged re-release with input from George Harrison's wife.

There are two bonus tracks along with a separate DVD that includes outtakes and a live recording from 1991 in Japan. There is a stellar cast of musicians including Nicky Hopkins, Ringo Starr, Gary Wright and two latter day Travelling Wilbury backing musicians Jim Horn and Jim Keltner (Ry Cooder).

The lyrics are often a celebration of all things spiritual but they are uplifting and positive as Harrison was never one to pen dark tunes. There is a big hint of Dylan on these tunes as Bob Dylan was one of Harrison's musical heroes - just listen to the bonus track 'Deep Blue' and 'Be Here Now', whilst 'Miss O'Dell' the other bonus track shows the fun side of Harrison as the band keep cracking up with laughter during the song.

With its expanded sleeve notes and lavish packaging this is how a re-release should be done.
