Wasn't there supposed to be a rare track or something as well?

AHHHH!!!! :)

  This made me so happy.

There may be some people that are not excited for this, but I for one am.

*Maybe they won't release what the rarity is until the CD actually comes out.

Upon finding this new info on Amazon, some fans are already expressing displeasure that the collection will only contain one disc, and that so many George Harrison songs have been left out.

People are already mad about this? I'm already excited over the cover alone!

This is supposed to be a "best of" album and there are just 19 songs?  And no "Wah-Wah"?  I'm disappointed, sorry. :(

UPDATE: A spokesman for Capitol/EMI told us this is not the final track list and said the final version will be released soon.


From:  http://www.examiner.com/x-2082-Beatles-Examiner~y2009m4d29-Track-list-revealed-for-new-George-Harrison-compilation

I think I feel better now.  (For the record, I wasn't being whiny just to be a pain, it's just that I thought George deserved better treatment than just a one-CD compilation album.)

I don't really get why they would release only a partial track listing, though.  It only makes fans grumpy and causes misunderstandings!   :P

Not sure if you're aware of this, but some people are cheesed over the cover photo too.  They don't think it's right to use a Beatle pic of George for a solo compilation.

Personally, I like it a lot.  It's a great photograph.

^Cheesed? =P

I really like the cover AND the song listing. I don't think it's right for the people to give half of the album listing, though. It's like saying, "You're half right," without an explaination. Either give out the entire listing, or don't give it out at all!

Oh, good grief. People are altogether too grumpy, if they decide to become upset over George's cover pic coming from the Beatles era. He was only in the band for about 12 years-- hardly a blink in the pop world. /extreme sarcasm

So if these people get to complain, I do, too. What in the world are they thinking, starting off the compilation with "Got My Mind Set On You"? Couldn't they have picked one of George's excellent and classic originals for this place of honor? I'm so upset, I'm going to blow up that fabulous cover to be 3 x lifesize and post it on my wall, and stare at it utter frustration. Or something.

...I'm feeling mellower already....


Very glad they're including "Cheer Down". I suppose "I Don't Want To Do It" is the rarity.

I agree with you whole heartdely HariHead.

  People just need to calm down. I do see the reason in getting upset over this. If it sin't something you're interested in, don't buy it.

As far as the cover photo. Who cares if he's in The Beatles or not when that photo was taking, he's still George Harrison. And the photo, as mentioned before, is a GREAT photo. Its balance is amazing, dark and light but still mysterious. And it's George, whats not to like? ;)

Anyway, still can't wait for the release. Now I just need to find some money! :)

I'll probably be a coward and let someone else buy the album and report. My experience with George albums is that the packaging is a delight. It looks like it was put together with love and appreciation, and includes lots of interesting extras. So if it turns out to be a beautiful CD (with that lovely cover as a start), I might buy it anyway, even though I have most of the songs! (Yes, I'm missing his non-album ones in CD form, of which "Cheer Down" is a particular favorite.)

Well they released a statement that the album is going to be just like they originally posted.

Well, I would replace some songs with some others.
But this gives me an idea that there`s going to be another The Best. Maybe they keep it in mind?

This will be his third already though. Its getting silly. Almost 'KISS' like.

I'd be interested in buying it. I never was much a fan of George's solo music, so it will give a better insight to his songs and perhaps if I like them I shall look further to get more of his albums

Okay, so I've seen the final list and I'm not very impressed.  :(  I don't mean to be grumpy but I just think George deserves a better collection.  One disc is not enough.  And his previous "best of" album was like, what, half Beatles songs? :-/

It's a good track listing of solo material which is good as the last Best Of they released after his death was more Beatles songs

I won't be buying it , George warranted a career spanning double cd .
I will spend my money on a couple more solo albums instead Brainwashed for one , and can someone tell me which album Blow Away is on ?
