EDITORS’ NOTES

Recorded after a five-year break, George Harrison's 1987 album Cloud Nine was a widely acclaimed and successful return to pop music. Working with Beatles fanatic, future Traveling Wilbury, and ELO founder Jeff Lynne gave Harrison the perfect ally for creating some of his tightest, catchiest tunes in years. "Got My Mind Set On You" captures the vibe perfectly—mixing '50s rock with modern production, and Harrison's own energized vocals. "When We Was Fab" is a tribute to his previous band, both in musical form and lyrical content. A total songwriting triumph, this would also prove to be Harrison's final studio album before his passing in 2001.

One of my favorites!

Cloud Nine happens to be one of my favorite albums of all time! All of the songs are special in some way, and though ELO's Jeff Lynne had obvious control on some of the songs, it still has an amazing sound! Special highlights are 'Devil's Radio' 'Wreck of the Hesperus' 'Shanghai Surprise' and, obviously, the title track. Over all: A+++++ album!

Got my mind set on you

I've always loved this song. I can't believe it took me this long to make the purchase. The words are simple, yet I love the beat! I will never forget George Harrison and all of his talent. Of all of the Fab Four, he is a true credit to the Beatles and this song proves he will not be forgotten.

FAB!!!

I love the whole album...but 'When We Was Fab' so captures the spirit of the Beatles and especially George's musical contributions when it came to Indian music. A knock out song for true Beatlemaniacs!!!
