Product Description

Dark Horse was the label George set up during the mid '70s to put out his solo work, this deluxe boxed set includes all of George's long-unavailable solo albums ( Thirty-Three & 1/3, George Harrison, Somewhere in England, Gone Troppo, Cloud Nine and a hybrid Super Audio CD version of the double Live in Japan album), with bonus tracks on all but the live set and new notes on all. But it's the bonus DVD that makes this set the absolute "perfecta"-containing 89 minutes of promo videos, unreleased live footage and a feature on the Dark Horse label, it's a behind-the-scenes look at a man whose vision and creative energy never flagged.

George has always been misunderstood by naysayers and those who only saw John and Paul as the true talents of the Fab Four. Every song that is on this set is pure musical genius. From THIS SONG and SOFT HEARTED HANA to FASTER and BLOW AWAY to THIS IS LOVE and IF THAT WHAT IT TAKES,every song is golden. If you really want to hear real music the way it's supposed to be done, not only get this set, but, if you don't have already, also get ALL THINGS MUST PASS, LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD, DARK HORSE, and EXTRA TEXTURE. To have George Harrison in your collection is a must if you truly appreciate great music.

George Harrison Dark Horse Years 1976-1992 is an amazing collection however it is flawed so I have to agree with many of the reviews I've read it's a 50/50 split here. The remastered cd's are crisp and clean and George has never sounded better! A few friends of mine bought the boxed set so I'm familiar with what's there and what isin't. I opted to buy a few of the cd's individually, and build up the colection. I went with 33 1/3, the self titled George Harrison album from 1979, Cloud Nine And Live In Japan. However, there's more to the story. As a Beatles Historian and Harrison Expert, one has to remember that George was really at his peak at the start of his solo career. From All Things Must Pass (reissued and remastered in 2000) to The Concert For Bangladesh to Living in the Material World George was at his most confident, powerful and influential period and he would never recapture the glory of those years shortly after the breakup of the Beatles due to his dismay at the changes in pop music at the end of the Seventies. This is why the unincluded tracks and the botched dvd are so important. Another reason I strongly suggest buying the cd's individually is most are on sale at various retailers thru mid March. After the disastrous North American Tour of 1974 (George was hoarse and should have pushed back the tour a few months - I saw him in Chicago) George basically became a singles artist, releasing mediocre albums however the singles were very strong (some critics did applaud the 1974 shows, it must be noted however for the most part it went sour and a live album was never released)This is why the missing tracks on this new collection are so important!Read more ›

These albums are sold seperately but for a full dose of George Harrison's post Apple works HERE IT IS.Everything the
quiet Beatle recorded from 1976 to 1992 from the R&B oriented
material of his mid 70's work,his early 80's new wave experiments in the early 80's and his 1987 comeback album
'Cloud 9'.You even get the ENTIRETY of his 1992 Live In Japan
album as Disk 6.So dream away and swallow this WHOLE!You'll come
out all the better I guarentee!

In general, I agree with most of the reviews - it's great to see George's Dark Horse work spotlighted, and the sound quality is excellent. I, too, would have preferred a DVD with all of George's videos, but the DVD with this set is a nice one.
Nonetheless, there's no getting away from the feeling that this set shortchanges the buyer, even those who are not fanatics who "must have everything." There simply are too many tracks missing, including "Flying Hour," "Lay His Head," and "Sat Singing," which were inexplicably dumped from the "Somewhere In England" album, but are among George's best solo work. There are others that should have been here too, including the "Best Of Dark Horse" CD, but others have already noted them in their reviews.
There is also a shocking and disappointing lack of meaningful liner notes in this set. More time and care should have been taken to research these recordings, including session dates, personnel, and other background information, particularly about the two versions of "Somewhere in England." A collection like this cries out for a Mark Lewisohn or Allen Wiener to produce liner notes of such quality and the paying customer deserves them. After all, what does David Fricke really know about George Harrison that most fans couldn't have written themselves?
An artist who was as gifted and original as George Harrison (quite apart from his Beatles recordings) deserves a truly comprehensive compendium of his work. Sadly, this otherwise enjoyable, but overpriced, box is not it.

Before his death, George Harrison began reissuing his out-of-print catalog with a stunning, remastered version of ALL THINGS MUST PASS. Although he planned to reissue his CONCERT FOR BANGLADESH next, health problems prevented him from completing that project. Now, two years after his death, Harrison's estate has reissued his 1976 to 1992 DARK HORSE YEARS, a box set of five CDs and one Super Audio CD containing pristine recordings of songs including "Beautiful Girl," "This Song," "It's What You Value," "Crackerbox Palace," "Love Comes to Everyone," "Not Guilty," "Blow Away," "Dark Sweet Lady," "Your Love Is Forever," "Unconsciousness Rules," "All Those Years Ago," "Save the World," "That's the Way It Goes," "Mystical One," along with several track demos and many live versions of songs like "My Sweet Lord," and Beatle classics including "Taxman," "Something," and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." While "The Quiet Beatle" has never sounded better, this remastered collection is a poignant reminder that the Material World will be a much poorer place without Harrison's spirituality. Hopefully, the Wilburys and BANGLADESH won't follow too far behind this winning DARK HORSE.
