    ITEM#: 2386994

    Personnel includes: George Harrison, John Lennon (vocals, guitar); Paul McCartney (vocals, bass); Eric Clapton (guitar); Billy Preston (keyboards); Ringo Starr (drums). Producers: George Harrison, George Martin, Phil Spector. Personnel: George Harrison. As evidenced on THE BEST OF GEORGE HARRISON, the Quiet Beatle did well in his little corner of Fab Fourdom despite being in the considerable shadow of John Lennon and Paul McCartney. The first seven songs on this collection point to Harrison's substantial contributions to the band, with "Taxman," "Here Comes The Sun" and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" being some of the more notable Harrison compositions. "Something" was the only song Harrison wrote for the Beatles that became a hit and ended up being covered by a number of artists including Frank Sinatra (who mistakenly credited it to Lennon/McCartney). Having been one of the first rock musicians to experiment with and embrace Eastern culture invariably bore a heavy influence on Harrison's music, most notably on his early solo work. "My Sweet Lord" and "Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)" with their messages of spiritual tranquility both topped the charts while "What Is Life" landed in the top 10. Harrison's commitment to the East resulted in a pair of 1972 charity concerts at Madison Square Garden for the people of Bangladesh from which the single "Bangla-Desh" peaked at 23 and earned more money for this personal crusade.

    • WONDERFUL !!!
      Verified Purchase

      I LOVE GEORGE !!! His family gave me a Romanian Angel Appeal sweatshirt in the early 90's. This is healing music from my childhood. I am having to remodel and lease out a home that has been in my family for 60 years. Hearing this wonderful music all over the house is helping. God bless you, George! See you in Heaven!!! Angela

      Verified Purchase

      In a different age/time we still have music relevant to today? Not what the kids want to hear but makes me smile from ear to ear! Good album has all the major hits post Beatles. A good starter album for any collection. Well worth the money.

    • Best of Harrison CD Review
      Verified Purchase

      Variety of songs over Harrison's career is good. The quality of the CD, however, is fair to poor. Volume levels are low throughout the CD and vary from song to song; your CD player volume adjustment needs to be tweaked on almost every track. The CD was priced below normal average CD price, so the overall value of what you get for the money is OK.
