I will keep this review short and to the point as best I can. I'm sure others will provide great detail on specifics. My review is about weither it is worth it to shell out the money for this box set, when you most likely own the collection in various formats. ( older cd's lps etc.). Absolutely and a resounding Yes !!. I was having some buyers remorse since I already have the last remasters of ATMP and LITMW. There are sonic differences especially in the presentation of his voice that really made this for me. The clarity and warmth in the instrumentation hits you in that soft spot. These guys who remastered this are on their A game. It should make you feel very happy to listen. You can clearly hear the separation and perfection that we should of heard All those years Ago :-). I've been going through the set all day. Just superb. A must have for George fans, As far as the music, well ,we all know it's a 10 out of 10. Enjoy everyone , you will not regret a penny !!

A decade ago, 'The Dark Horse Years, 1976-1992' was released. That six album (on seven CDs) set brought together all George's releases on his own label. In one handy box, it was accompanied by a DVD of various promos and some in concert footage. Ten years later, the Harrison estate has seen fit to issue something similar that encompasses all six of his solo LPs (also on seven CDs) issued on Apple called, unsurprisingly, 'The Apple Years, 1968-75', once again accompanied by a DVD. So, let's "Open the box!"

THE BOX:
It's the same style as before but unlike that previous box, the easily breakable jewel cases have been dispensed with and each is in the 'new standard' card case, which I think is better. Included is a 48 page glossy book with plenty of unseen photos (tape boxes included) and a decent narrative from Kevin Howlett, and each disc, bar 'All Things Must Pass', which has no booklet or text, and 'Living In The Material World', contains an essay by the same author.

WONDERWALL MUSIC:
A fusion of Indian and Western music. Though it might not sound appealing, and it probably works better in conjunction with the film, there are some decent tunes here. Phasing guitars, honky-tonk piano and banjos all mix with sitars, tablas, tamburas, etc. to produce some country, psychedelic, spy music and some heavy (for the time) stuff, too. It's not as bad as you might think. Harrison does play on this, alongside the Remo 4, Eric Clapton, Ringo and others. Of the three bonus tracks, the most interesting, in title at least, is 'The Inner Light'. It's an alternate instrumental take, though not wildly different, with some preceding studio chatter.

A delightful package which brings together a load of sometimes difficult to find material. I would think that Wonderwall and Electronic Sound are for the hard core fans only. Frankly, for these two discs of largely odd and experimental material, which are for completists only, I had a hard time finding any improvements over my original vinyl copies, but the other discs are great with excellent clarity. George wrote a lot of truly wonderfull songs. The art work is superb and the price is sensible

It's great ... but it could have been better! Ok, most of the albums here are good (Electronic Sound is something you listen to once or maybe twice in your life and that's it) and ''all things must pass'' is a masterpiece, but since this box is for hardcore George or Beatles fans, it could have been better with the bonus material. There are here and there some interestings bonus tracks (the best being the remake of ''This guitar (can't keep from crying)'', but a lot is missing. For example, a live section with at last George's songs on the Concert for Bengla Desh and recordings from the 74' tour would have been welcomed. What about some tracks from the jam sessions with Bob Dylan? And more demos or alternate recordings from All thing must pass? All that stuff can be found on the internet in bootleg form, it would have be great to get it well mastrered! George wrote in 2001 that he was sorry All things must pass is an album drowned with echo (a trademark of Phil Spector wall of sound signature), so what about a ''stripped'' version here, like the one Yoko authorized for John's (and her) Double Fantasy album? Maybe all those possible bonus are kept for a future ''The bootleg years'' boxset ???

First off let me say that the remastering of the albums in the set is excellent. I do believe it is overpriced for what it offers. Electronic Sound is a throwaway disk that would never had been released if it was put out by anyone other than an Ex-Beatle. Its a shame that The Concert For Bangla Desh is not included in this set as it is an Apple release. The bonus material is very sparse considering the wealth of material that is known to exist from listening to bootleg material. The Dvd is very short considering they could have added highlights from George's only American Tour if not a whole concert. Overall it's a nice well designed set but could have been better if the Harrison Estate had not been so stingy with the content.
