Default GEORGE HARRISON'S WIDOW HAS MULTIPLE PROJECTS IN THE WORKS

from Classic Rock Revisited--

GEORGE HARRISON'S WIDOW HAS MULTIPLE PROJECTS IN THE WORKS

There are several new George Harrison reissues in the works this year. Beatlefan magazine reported that Harrison's son Dhani said that among the projects on the front burner is a box set featuring remastered versions of Harrison's Apple records from 1968 to 1975, a new career-spanning greatest hits collection, a CD and DVD of Harrison's only solo U.S. tour from 1974, as well as reissues of all the albums from the artists on Harrison's Dark Horse record label from the mid-'70s.

Harrison's widow Olivia added that Harrison was working on his own Anthology video project at the time of his death in 2001 that she'd like to see finished. No word on when that or the proposed box set of solo outtakes and demos will see the light of day.

Earlier this month, the first book to fully chronicle Harrison's religious and spiritual life, titled Here Comes The Sun: The Spiritual And Musical Journey Of George Harrison, was published. Author Joshua Greene, who recorded with Harrison in 1970 while a part of the Radha Krishna Temple -- a Krishna sect -- recalled to us that he was amazed at how down to earth Harrison was in the recording studio: We came in, he said hello to his friends, slapped a few old buddies on the back. Then he started laughing and yukking it up about people's reactions to a rock group with shaved heads -- because he was putting out these albums of Sanskrit mantras. Then he looked at his watch and said 'Y'know, we better get started, this studio is costing us 40 pounds-an-hour.'That was impressive. He might've been a Beatle, he might've been one of the richest, most successful guys around -- but he was very practical."

Among the albums set to released as part of the upcoming George Harrison "Apple Years" box set will be 1968's Wonderwall, 1969's Electronic Sound, 1973's Living In The Material World, 1974's Dark Horse, and 1975's Extra Texture (Read All About It).

Harrison's All Things Must Pass and The Concert For Bangladesh albums from 1970 and 1971, respectively, have already been reissued in expanded and remastered versions, as have all the albums in his 1976-1992 catalogue.

Awesome. I'm glad the Wonderwall and Electronic Sounds will be part of the set. Olivia is really doing a great job with the reissues. I just wish we had dates for some of this stuff!

I'm surprised (but glad) Wonderwall and ES will be included in the set; it now has more of a reason for me to get it than what I'm sure will be a meager amount of bonus tracks.

Dark Horse album reissues mean little to me; I may get the Splinter one but that's about it. I'm glad a greatest-hits album is coming out (it's long overdue), but I'm absolutely psyched about the Dark Horse tour CD/DVD--I've been wanting that for a long time.

Hearing that there will be an official Dark Horse tour CD/DVD was a great way to start off this drab Monday morning. Now perhaps I won't feel the need to locate a less official copy

I couldn't agree more. The Dark Hourse tour DVD/CD as well as the idea of of the Anthology project and demos and outtakes project has brightened my morning, and I needed that majorly this morning!

The ''Ravi Shankar family and friends'' album would be my top pick from those

They are out on Bootleg DVD's for quite some time..and have been available on download sites like WinMX and Kazaa for at least over 6 years or so

Here is a Traveling Wilbury CD/DVD

http://www.baltcd.org/view.php?id=23243

There are also two George Harrison DVD's which have the Wilbury video's on it. They have been around since maybe 2 or 3 years. "The Dark Horse Collection"

This is really good news. Apart from George's own material, there is Splinter which I have thanks to Legs, and Ravi Shankar's project which is a delight to listen to.

However, one which I am very interested in is a band called "Attitudes" which I have not heard anything from (yet) but seems very interesting if you see the line up of the band and also the additional musicians which played on the two albums they made.

Band Members
David Foster - Keyboards
Jim Keltner - Drums, Percussion
Danny (Kootch) Kortchmar - Guitar, Lead and background vocals
Paul Stallworth - Bass, Lead and background vocals

David, Jim and Paul worked with George as a sort of basis backing band on the Extra Texture album like he had Derek and his Dominos on All Things Must Pass and they prove to be great musicians. There is even a reference to Danny Kootch (Danny Kootch doesn't appear on this record)

David Foster also played on 33 1/3

Danny Kortchmar worked with artists such as Ringo...Carol King, James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, Warren Zevon, Harry Nilsson and Jackson Browne. He has also produced recordings by Don Henley, Neil Young, Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, and others.

Attitudes was a pop/rock quartet from Los Angeles made up of some well-known names — producer/composer/arranger David Foster on keyboards, guitarist Danny Kortchmar, bassist Paul Stallworth, and noted session drummer Jim Keltner. The group was signed to George Harrison's Dark Horse Records label and made two albums in the mid-'70s; a single, "Sweet Summer Music", charted at number 94 in 1976

Albums
1976: Attitudes (UK AMLH 22008) (USA SP22008) (Japan KING GP-289)
1977: Good News (UK K 56385) (USA DH 3021) (Japan WARNER P-10386D)

Singles
1975: Ain't Love Enough / The Whole World's Crazy (UK AMS 5504) (USA DH 10004)
1976: Honey Don't Leave L.A. / Lend A Hand (USA DH 10008)
1976: Sweet Summer Music / If We Want To (UK AMS 5508) (USA DH 10011)
1977: Sweet Summer Music / Being Here With You (USA DRC 8404)
1977: In A Stranger's Arms / Good News (USA DRC 8452)
