180g Vinyl Pressing of Final Posthumous Album Mastered from the Original Analog Master Tapes and Cut at Capitol Studios
While it's generally accepted that George Harrison bloomed late as a Beatles songwriter, there's no denying it was worth the wait. The release of All Things Must Pass, in 1970, was like unstopping a bottle. An ambitious triple-album, it set the template for the nine studio albums that would follow. Harrison continued to shape and redefine his music and legacy with a string of prolific and poignant releases throughout the remainder of the '70s and early-80s.
However, it was after 1987's Cloud Nine that his solo career seemingly went on hiatus. Following a stint with the Traveling Wilburys, 1992 live outing Live In Japan found Harrison in fine form on stage, but several tragic setbacks ensured that he never fully completed his final, posthumous album, Brainwashed. Finished by his son Dhani and longtime ally Jeff Lynne and originally released in 2002, a year after his death, it's a wonderful reminder that George Harrison's songwriting never lost its potency or humor.
"It is a fine, enchanting epitaph for a man who, to the end of life, believed rock & roll was heaven on earth." - Rolling Stone
