Un-Butchered Harrison: 1981-2001

"All These Years Ago" - A blues-tinged, upbeat tribute to John with Ringo on drums and Paul on backing vocals. Listen to George's soaring vocal. John and George, rest in peace.
"Johnny B. Goode" - George becomes the leader of a big old band in this all-star rendition of the Chuck Berry classic. Love the rockabilly guitar!
"I've Got My Mind Set On You" - This cover of a 60s oldie has charm, despite lyrics that are a bit too repetitive. I love the blasting horns in the middle, with George's clean lead guitar.
"This is Love" - The message of this song lives on, even if the cheesy 80s synthesized sound didn't.
"When We Was Fab" - The sound of this song has many callbacks to the good old days - the strings and timpani hearken the more orchestral work of the Beatles. The background vocal harmonies recall the beautiful chords George made with Paul and John. Hey, there's even some harpsichord!
"Any Road" - Limerick lyrics, catchy melody, and the wonderful sound of many guitars make one of George's final messages a charming one.
