    Scans - George Harrison’s gaze through the years

    "What has become apparent in the decade since his death is the uncanny symmetry of George’s life - a life lived to the fullest. What might have seemed random or impulsive in him while he lived, is in retrospect a pattern; part performance, part pilgrimage. His saturation in the material world drove him to seek the spiritual in things - and so his life seems a series of vanishings and reappearances, journeys there and back, even the portraits of him that seem iconic are various, a progression of so many faces, his features, his hair, his posture - different in each one. Yet his gaze is unchanged, his eyes telling us that the same soul is inhabiting this body.” - From the introduction to Living in the Material World by Paul Theroux


  6. "'Hey, Jude' was actually about Julian Lennon. It was written by Paul at the time John was splitting up with Cynthia. Julian was just a little boy - probably five years old - and Paul had gone out to John's house and been affected by seeing Julian, the innocent bystander in a divorce situation."

  7. Great news!

    From Examiner:

    George Harrison remasters, box set could be in the works

    Are the long overdue remasters for George Harrison’s “Extra Texture” and “Dark Horse” finally coming? Apparently so from what Dhani Harrison posted on thenewno2 Facebook page July 21 and also on Instagram. It was a picture of someone, apparently him, with their feet up on a recording mixing board.

    Underneath the picture was posted this comment: “Back to work .. Happy Monday to all the twos out there. If you look closely you may spot something PH and I have been working on for the past few months.”

    A user posted a reply, “The remasters of ‘Dark Horse’ and ‘Extra Texture’?!” and the answer came back. ‘Well done @d_gargs ! …. not only that but it is the test pressing of the whole Apple Years box set. The first seven albums. A lot (of) work …’”

    AllMusic.com adds to the suspense with a page for “The Apple Years” box set. It lists a release date of Sept. 22, but barely anything else. The page includes a number “Universal #3791387” and a mention that it will include both CD and DVD. But there’s no no mention of what’s included,

    There’s also no listing for any of what we just mentioned, either the separate CDs for “Dark Horse” and “Extra Texture,” or an “The Apple Years” box set at any online retailer yet. We’ll have to just wait and see.

    It’s been a long time since any George Harrison reissues of original albums. For example, his “Dark Horse Years 1976 – 1992” box set that included “Somewhere In England,” “Cloud 9,” “Thirty-Three and a Third,” “George Harrison,” “Gone Troppo” and “Live In Japan,” plus a bonus DVD, came out in 2004. His “All Things Must Pass” was reissued in 2001.“Living in the Material World” (the album) was re-released in 2006. “The Concert for Bangladesh” CD was reissued in 2005.

    This comment from a user on a very reliable forum is interesting as well:

    "I can’t say much yet, but there WILL be bonus tracks on every album. Some of the bonus tracks are mind-blowers. The albums will be available separately and in box set form." [x]

    I’ll update this post as soon as more information is released. :)

    You truly were one of a kind, George.

  9. "I think that for me has been a good point throughout all this madness: I see it as somebody else. You know Beatles are something else quite apart from me, and this thing of being Beatle George - I’m not really Beatle George. I’m sorry to disappoint you, but that is just a little part that got played through in this life, I mean there is much more to me than the Beatle George."
