We had to wait five years for this album... back in the day, and we had to wait another 15 for his posthumous album, not counting The Trembling Wilbury's.  ;)

I have loved this album since I heard it the first heard it back in '87. 1987 was a good Beatles year. George had a new album, and number one hit as well. Paul had a new Hits Collection, and a new UK single that I got in the US. The Beatles catalog came out on CD for the first time, and the solo albums started coming out on CD as well. I miss those times. It was fun and expensive being a Beatles fan.

As a 60's fan I think it sounds too 80's for my ears. I prefer any of George's albums from 1970 to 1975, but I admit that Cloud Nine is a key album of him.

Great album, but one of the worst album covers in my opinion.

It is simple, in a way. I love seeing George with his Gretsch from the old days. I think George looks good, and happy.

Yeah, one of my favorite George Harrison albums!!
I remember the year of it's release, I was really surprised of it's quality and I played it for weeks 'round and 'round......
It's a pity that he left us so early, I'm shure he would have had written some more great songs like Cloud Nine for us if :'(.......

You're right, it's a bad cover artwork indeed, typical 80's style.....
For good luck it's good music in a bad sleeve and not the the opposite..... ;D

I agree regarding the cover, although i do like the photo of George.  The cover just looks like it was designed more for a CD sized cover then a full LP sized album jacket.  It just has the vibe to it, in my opinion....but then again a lot of albums released around that time had similar 'simple photo cover' designs.

I still like this album a lot.  It was the one that introduced me to George's works..and "That's What It Takes' re-introduced him to me all over again a few years ago.  So it paved the way for all his other wonderful stuff from the past ( Beatles included!).   I like his 70s stuff a great deal...but will always have a soft spot for this album.

My favourite George Harrison album (excluding compilations).  Favourites tracks: That's What It Takes, Fish On The Sand, This Is Love, When We Was Fab, Wreck Of The Hesperus and Got My Mind Set On You. This album features a healthy amount of refreshingly catchy "upbeat" George; in my opinion a nice break away from his dreary, turgid preaching of the mid 70s .

A very good marketing decision, to put George Harrison on the front of a George Harrison album. It worked for Somewhere In England, that album sold over 10 copies.

It screams 80's too. It's a joke: "Spot the Loonie". It's very humourous.
