George's music is very relevant to prayer meetings and discussion groups. My church just LOVES him.

Again the homepage has been edited.

http://www.georgeharrison.com/

The Media page has a few new pictures and also has several music videos, with great clear quality, much better than the Youtube ones we often have here

This Is Love
When We Was Fab
Got My Mind Set On You

and 2 very good quality ones from Live In Japan; Cloud 9 and Cheer Down.

The Features section includes a short video starring Olivia about George's mini and also a picture slideshow about it.

The Extras section has several buddy icons.

Ooh, why don't you post a screenshot here? I've entered George's site and it's got a nice 33&1/3 picture which I'd never seen (as his site's homepage, I mean).

Those videos are good, but many of us have already got them in the Dark Horse DVD. I'd rather see some others that I have never seen with a good qualiyt before.

You say many of us yes, but not all and often these half-quality videos show up from youtube, so...just additional value

Well, of course I'm not going to complain about those videos being in George's site. But it's kind of materialistic. I suppose that if they've decided to put them there, it is because they don't think they're going to sell many more Dark Horse DVDs. And that if they haven't put other videos not available anywhere with a reasonable quality it is because they're keeping them aside so they can bleed us once again with some future release (and I'm one who will allow to be bled, that's for sure). I wish I'm wrong, but to me, it's kind of suspicious they haven't put any other video. If, as you say, they're there for those who haven't got the Dark Horse DVD, why don't they put the rest of the videos for all of us who haven't got them? And I'm not saying this out of meanness. I'd buy a DVD with those videos even if they were available through George's site.

I don't see anything suspicious about it. From day one of the site there has been some audio and some video, it is not related to any releases or to keep things away from the audience.

The "Faster" video I forgot to mention.

The three Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame videos are I believe not part of the box set DVD, nor of course is the Hollywood Walk Of Fame one.

The website maintainance is somewhat weak, I gotta admit that and I have had some contact about that with the 'Jerry' from gh.com but that is directed by I believe EMI.

Well then maybe have a look at the 'store' section of the website and you will find it available. Albums, singles, DVD's, books, clothes.........

I was referring to all the videos that aren't included in the web site. I've already got all those albums, single, DVDs and book that are sold in the webstore.

Oh, I hadn't seen those. I don't know whether they've been added later (I'm not a frequent visitor to that site), but I only recalled seeing those up to "Living in the Material World". I like those new additions, but anyway I'd rather they had included more song video clips not available yet ("Blow Away", "True Love").

We always want more from George yet are there (m)any official websites from musicians which offer all their available videos ?

And before you start, I do not mean musicians who just started and are promoting all their stuff

These R&RHall Of Fame ones are terrific btw, especially the combination where Prince goes really wild on While My Guitar on guitar next to Dhani, Tom, Jeff. Some combination huh?

I wasn't going to start. I'm afraid I'm not much into new musicians. I've gone from the Beatles backwards!

I do really like them, and I wouldn't like anyone to believe I'm not glad those videos are there. But, as you and Oliver Twist said, I want some more!

lol well then you will hit the Beatles roots like Buddy Holly, Carl Perkins and the likes, then move down to the 30's of Hoagy Carmichael and before you know it be at Bach and Beethoven who also inspired our guys

Colin Blunstone will help you out there, or just do the George DVD's

That's it. My last acquisition is a compilation by Arthur Alexander. I made mp3 files from all the videos of his I found in YouTube, listened to them a few times and decided this man deserved my buying a CD. I arrived to Bach and Beethoven through another path, though, but I think that if I move forwards from them, and backwards from the Beatles, both ends will meet some day. I'll let you know where (┐Scott Joplin?)

Oh, I didn't know it. I'll check it in YouTube (my latest testing device to see whether I like songs or not before buying them).

I always loved that photo of Ravi and George that's up on the frontpage. I used it for a cover of a cd-r compilation I made of George's songs for others.
