EDITORS’ NOTES

George Harrison's final studio album was nearing completion when he passed away in November 2001, and it was completed with respect to his wishes by his son, Dhani Harrison, and his good friend and producer Jeff Lynne. Harrison had been working on the album on and off since 1988. "Any Road," the album's leadoff cut, was written as the Cloud Nine album was wrapping up. "Run So Far" appeared on his friend Eric Clapton's 1999 album, Journeyman. The result is an album very much in tune with Harrison's later days, when he was at peace with his legacy and approached making music without concern for the pop charts. Lynne does a nice job giving Harrison's songs a finished veneer, and "Rising Sun," "Any Road," "Looking for My Life," and "Rocking Chair in Hawaii" (sporting a touch of Hank Williams' "Long Gone Lonesome Blues") are among Harrison's finest. A cover of Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler's "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" offers insight into Harrison's musical interests. The album was finished and released just under a year after his passing.

Beautiful Album 5/5

This album is near perfect and "Stuck Inside a Cloud" is one of my favorite songs of all time. Thank you for your amazing impact on this world, George...We miss you.

Any Road

In my opinion the song "Any Road" is simply one of Georges best efforts ever. It's not "Here Comes the Sun" but nothing is.

Brainwashed

George has left us with this last album, one of his very best, although all of his music touches our hearts, minds & souls. "Marwa Blues" is the most hauntingly sublime melody of all, it takes you to a place or rather places that you want to linger in bliss or soar thru the cosmos; his love song "I'll never get over you" is achingly beautiful. "Stuck inside a cloud" tells us again of his love for The Creator; this may be my all-time fav album of his, though his music and lyrics touch my heart & soul like no
One else's do. Thank God his music lives on, because he was one of the best spirits this world has experienced!
