I really like George's music especially All things must Pass as one of my favs of all time, but he did kind of "screw up" some Beatle albums with his insistance of turning us on to sitar music. Imagine if Sgt Pepper had instead of Within You Without You, another Lovely Rita, or if Revolver had instead of Love You To, another Eleanor Rigby......?

Imagine all the people.....

Most of the George and Ringo albums are not in print but at least some of George are up for re-release.

I don't agree on the sitar references here. Ofcourse you must like it, but it gave a new dimension to pop-music whereas other artists got to study on it too.

The Inner Light is one of my favorites by George in his band period. If you don't like a sitar, listen to the melody.

On various polls, All Things Must Pass come forward as the most favorite solo album by any Beatle.

Well you can see from my name that I am a George fan (as #1 of the four).

All Things Must Pass must be a culmination of all the songs George had been writing that didn' fit into John and Paul's notion of being Beatle songs.
Many artists' first album are their best as it is a culmination of years of writing and the best songs get on it. After that, it might be a years worth of writing, coming up with a few gems.

Some of the songs on All Things Must Pass indeed date back from the Beatles period, but bear in mind, that that period had in fact just ended.
Also, George kept some songs which he never played with the Beatles before.

I was wondering when someone would mention 'The Inner Light', which is a true masterpiece.
'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' 'Something' 'Taxman' 'Piggies' 'Here Comes The Sun' all show that George's talent was at the very least equal to, if not as prolific as, John & Paul's, and he has always been underrated. His solo albums are well worht a visit, and are plentiful and cheaply found in second hand record stores, and memorabilia stands at Beatlefests. Indulge!

Is anyone familiar with George's "33 1/3" album? There's a track on it entitled "Beautiful Girl" and I think it's great! He also does a terrific version of the old standard "True Love" which is very easy on the ear.

The vast majority of George's works are easy on the ears. 33 & 1/3 is a good album. The songs I like best on it are "Crackerbox Palace" and "This Song".

I think easy on the ears is like 'easy listening'.

Beautiful Girl is indeed a great tune and I find Learning How To Love You one of his best ever, also when you talk about guitar solo's. Listen to the accoustic guitar hereon.

Most of the time when on Boards a favorite list is to be produced of George songs in Beatle days or thereafter, I have The Inner Light in it.

Rita, my sweet, George recorded a long-playing album called "33 1/3" when he was just that age: 33 & 1/3 years old. Clever, eh? I have no doubt you knew that easy on the ear meant pleasant to listen to, didn't you? "True Love" is an old Cole Porter tune sung by Bing Crosby & Grace Kelly in the movie HIGH SOCIETY. George's version is terrific. If you can find this album anywhere, it's worth buying, as it's terrific to listen to. The very sarcastic "This Song" was a moderate chart success, but I'm sure 'kat, Glenn, or one of our resident experts can tell us just how high it climbed. P.S. Good luck in school this term, Lovely!
