I Me Mine-The Extended Edition
About this deal
Harrison railed against the material world yet wrote the first pop song complaining about income tax. He spent years lovingly restoring his Friar Park estate as a spiritual journey, but quickly mortgaged the property to help rescue a film project that would be widely banned as sacrilegious, Monty Python’s Life of Brian . Despite his religious convictions, Harrison led an interesting life and it's all detailed in this book in 530 pages. The book contains the lyrics to 60 Harrison compositions, the themes of which West represents visually with watercolour paintings. The ordeal of his last years didn’t stop at his cancer nor his being almost murdered at Friar Park by the crazed midnight intruder fought off by Olivia.
Success has a way of changing everyone who achieves it, and the members of the Beatles were a good example of rags to riches. Songs by George Harrison is a book of song lyrics and commentary by English musician George Harrison, with illustrations by New Zealand artist Keith West. Harrison could be fiercely jealous, but not only did he stay friends with Eric Clapton when Clapton fell in love with Harrison’s wife, Pattie Boyd, the two men grew even closer after Clapton walked away with her. On the musical disc accompanying the Songs by George Harrison book, Harrison decided to include three of the tracks that Warner Bros. For popular music has more utter bilge written about it, by men mostly, than any other subject except food.
Another solid bio from Norman detailing the birth, incredible life, and passing of the “quiet” Beatle George Harrison. One must get in all the dross about sales and chart placings, ever seeking new and interesting ways of saying things like “the album went to No 2 on the Billboard Hot 100”. Inevitably, it awoke memories of John Lennon’s murder in 1980 – but the two tragedies differed in more than their circumstances. It was published in February 1988, in a limited run of 2500 copies, by Genesis Publications, and included an EP of rare or previously unreleased Harrison recordings.
He was still deeply rooted in music and working for social causes, putting together the Concert for Bangladesh to aid victims of famine and war in that beleaguered country.Here, the Fab Four's inimitable chronicler Philip Norman gives us the portrait of Harrison's remarkable life that only he can: myth-dispelling, richly detailed, and full of humor. Everybody has their favorite Beatle, some like the cute one, Paul above all others, others prefer the smart Beatle, John. Yoko Ono’s constant presence in John’s life divides him between The Beatles and artistic expressions with Yoko.
