Musician and mystic, George Harrison

The “Quiet Beatle,”
George Harrison.

 

George Harrison. In many ways, George’s first two post-Beatles studio albums were amazing and awe-inspiring: “All Things Must Pass” and the charity “Concert For Bangladesh.”

These overshadowed the third studio effort, “Living In The Material World,” yet it was certified gold two days after its release.

The effort became his second number one album (US), driven by the hit song “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth).” The 1973 album and single held the #1 chart position at the same time!

The cast of players on these sessions was an amazing ensemble, among them: Leon Russell, Ringo, Gary Wright, Klaus Voormann, Jim Keltner and Nicky Hopkins.

Rolling Stone magazine described it as a “pop classic”, a work that “stands alone as an article of faith, miraculous in its radiance”

At one point, the tentative album title was “The Light That Has Lighted the World” but later the album’s working title changed to “The Magic Is Here Again.”

Retired rocket scientist and part-time brain surgeon. Ok, I also took some time out (four years!) to serve in the US Navy as a journalist. Continued a radio career in Seattle and southern California. Streaming radio and assorted podcasting keeps me busy. What a strange trip it’s been and continues to be!
