I voted Thirty Three And A Third , as i like the overall feel of this album  :)

DaveRam :)

That's my personal fav George album (which is quite an odd choice to people)
but it's a particular album that has held great memories to me.
Second favourite would be Cloud 9, 3rd: Brainwashed, ok.. that's enough! ;D ;)

All Things Must Pass is just amazing, one of my favorite solo albums. I especially like What Is Life, Awaiting On You All, All Things Must Pass, and If Not For You. Even though If Not For You was written by Bob Dylan, I think George does is beautifully, it's an amazing song. When that album came out, everyone was like "Whoa, I didn't think he was capable of this!" But, he proved everyone wrong. The lyrics are wonderful, the singing is wonderful, the guitar is wonderful, everything about it is wonderful.

Unfortunately, I only own ATMP and LITMW, so I won't vote on this, but ATMP is my favourite of those two.

You've got the best two, in my personal completely subjective opinion, Badfinger_Boogie. :) However, I really like George Harrison and play it often, so you might want to add that to your collection. Personally, I think Brainwashed is top notch, easily ATMP and LITMW caliber, but it's not on our 70s list. Cheers.

It's okay. I'm going to buy all his solo albums sooner or later anyway.

I do own other solo albums though. Just not from the 70s. So far, Cloud Nine is my favourite. (thumbsup)

Heh. No votes for 'Dark Horse', my second fave. Silly me.

Yes, I've been listening to the Jam and it's crap.  :-/
I love the jams, but then I love the whole of ATMP. Actually, thats not quite true. I hate Spector's reverb and wall of sound, but it doesn't detract too much. Yes, I agree that its the best solo album by an ex-Beatle. It's just incredible and its probably not surprising that George's subsequent albums weren't in same league. How could you even try to top that?

ATMP will walk it. So I guess it's really race for second place.

Vote....  ;)

It will, and my second place vote goes to Thirty-Three and 1/3.

 I first heard it years ago while I was lazing on a beach in Vancouver: some guy further down was playing "True Love" on a boombox, and it took until "Crackerbox Palace" for me to finally recognize George. So I schlepped into a record store on the way home and bought the thing. Its got a very cool white soul (I guess) type of sound.
