The reissue of "Cloud Nine" is a cause for celebration. The remastering sounds fresh. Harrison's material on this set is consistently strong. The title track is one of his best buoyant melodies. "If That's What It Takes" is a strong song, one that has me hit the repeat button. "Just for Today" is one of my favorite meditative songs; its sincerity as Harrison tries to live "through this day only" highlights his "Be Here Now" philosophy of living in the moment. The bubbly background vocals on "This Is Love" and the retro guitar riff makes this one of Harrison's most addictive tracks, "little things that will change you forever may appear from way out of the blue." The lovely piano part with the classical melody makes "We Was Fab" one of Harrison's greatest Beatle legacy tracks. "Devil's Radio" may be a bit overly didactic, but Harrison rocks so well that it's nevertheless quite fun as we join in singing "gossip". On "Someplace Else" the slower melody works marvelously as the gumdrop background choruses lull us into the sweetest of moods, "I need you now to be beside me." "Wreck of the Hesperus" rocks out joyfully with Harrison's marvelous lead guitar punctuating his unusual lyrics. The lovely Asian-inflected melody of "Breath of Heaven" is charmingly romantic. The closer for the original release, "Got My Mind Set On You," is one of Harrison's most commercial rockers, "It's going to take patience and time to do it right." The bonus track "Shanghai Surprise" has some lovely Beatlesque harmonies. "Zig Zag" seems a bit whimsical and perhaps a bit half-baked, but it's a lot of fun! The sequencing of songs provides just the right mix of fast & slow. The art and photos in the booklet are exquisite. This re-release of this classic set is not to be missed. Bravo!

George Harrison had huge success with his 1987 album, "Cloud Nine," and with good reason: this is some of the most catchiest, irresistible music George ever made in his solo career. Co-produced by George and his pal, Jeff Lynne (of ELO), "Cloud Nine" contains nothing but absolutely wonderful, infectious pop: the title song, "That's What It Takes," "This Is Love," "When We Was Fab" (George's affectionate look back at his Fab Four days), "Devil's Radio," "Breath Away From Heaven," George's #1 hit single cover of Rudy Clark's "Got My Mind Set On You," and all the rest---simply marvelous music. George sings & plays his heart out, and he's joined on the album by a great group of friends, not only Jeff Lynne but also Eric Clapton, Elton John, and his old Beatle chum Ringo Starr. "Cloud Nine" is a very happy, upbeat, feel-good album that's eager to please, and it remains one of George Harrison's very best. You, too, will be on Cloud Nine listening to this one!

This is THE comeback album that re-established George Harrison as a star in his own right (he no longer had to be a Beatle to be famous) It was eagerly anticipated in 1987 when it first came out and was well worth the wait. This album also established George's long working relationship with Jeff Lynne (of ELO) and led directly to both the Travelling Wilbury's and Lynne's production of the new "Beatles" singles Real Love and Free As A Bird for the Beatles Anthology project in the mid nineties. The two bonus tracks are a nice addition as well. George is in great voice and there is literally no filler on this album. Part of the essential Harrison collection along with All Things Must Pass, this is a must for all fans of George and the Fab Four. Points of trivia:Harrison himself said in an interview at the time this LP came out - he was going to call it "Spot the Looney!" - that cool Gretsch that he's holding on the cover is his first "real guitar" a "Duo Jet" from the Hamburg days in the early 1960's and the same electric he used on the first British LP "Please Please Me".

Cloud Nine (1987.) George Harrison's ninth solo album.
Following the release of his 1982 album, Gone Troppo, George Harrison took an extended vacation from recording albums for a while. During his leave of absence, he recorded a track for the Porky's Revenge soundtrack, which was nothing short of excellent - and a premonition of what was to come. In 1987, Harrison teamed up with Electric Light Orchestra (E.L.O.) frontman Jeff Lynne, for some help with his upcoming ninth studio album. And in 1987, Cloud Nine was released. This was Harrison's most popular release in nearly fifteen years! Does it live up to the hype, or is it just an overrated and subpar effort? Read on for my review.
Is this album overrated? Yes it is. Does it deserve to be overrated? Yes it does. This is George Harrison's first true five-star album since 1970's All Things Must Pass. No, this album doesn't quite top that one, but it's a very close second best. On this album, Harrison serves up masterpiece after masterpiece. The big hits to be found on this album are Got My Mind Set On You and When We Was Fab. Got My Mind Set On You is a cover of a song written by Rudy Clark. Harrison's take on the song hit number one on the pop charts. The other fairly popular track featured on this album is When We Was Fab, Harrison's ode to his Beatle days. Because of Jeff Lynne's assistance on this album, many tracks on the album greatly resemble Electric Light Orchestra - and this is the closest thing on the album to one of their songs. But, the big hits aren't the only good songs on this album! In addition to Jeff Lynne, Harrison recruited an assortment of all-star musicians for these sessions. The album's title track even featured Eric Clapton on guitars!
