It sounds 60s, doesn't it?
My favourite one from him has always been Run Of The Mill but the best could be All Things Must Pass.

I don't know George's solo stuff that well. Difficult to choose, but, Simply Shady on the Dark Horse album is really good.

Awaiting On You All and Apple Scruffs could be stuff from their early years very well. I love the album and I've always wondered how it would be if it'd have been recorded by the guys as a unit.  :-/

Yes, it was, but with a definetely 60s touch. I was wondering what about the guys recording in 1970 George's stuff, with their touch,but... "the dream is over" (1970).

I miss some things: harmonies from John and Paul and Paul's bass specially. I don't like the production (damned Spector's Wall of Sound!) but I like the 200 o version George made.

George didn't like the production Spector made. It's old-fashioned, somehow. I like the 2000 version because of the production (no so many guitars) and the slide.

I'm quite fond of alternate versions of classics that George did with others.

Here Comes The Sun w/ Paul Simon
Dream w/ Bob Dylan
Anything from the Japan tour he did with Clapton

Very good song, but long for my taste. It bores me some parts of it, ... just waiting for the last two minutes that are great. I can't stand version 2 however.

My Sweet Lord sounds like George embarking on his new solo career with the uptempo sound and that.

My Sweet Lord 2000 sounds to me like he kind of knows that it's nearly over, therefore he comes full circle with a slower more mournful remake.

Very nice words of you ... sorry for the delay

P.S. Even now, I'm saying what I thinking (not thinking -of linking- what I'm saying)
