At this point Dsnito I have to confess to having this album for several years, but have only listened to it once (shame on me!). I'll try and listen to it over the next few days, then I'll let you know what I think.
As promised, I've dusted down my copy of 33 1/3 and listened to it for the first time since I bought it nearly 10 years ago. I'm impressed. Definitely a huge improvement over both Dark Horse and Extra Texture. Given time and a few more plays, I can see this becoming one of my favourite George albums. I particularly like 'Dear One' - I can imagine Brian Wilson writing a song like this one.

Blow Away was on the self titled GH debut on Waner Bors Recors in 1979. Was it called Faster in brazil, NITO? a great song with a catchy hook.


Steve - I should say KNOWN as "Faster" in Brazil, because the track title refered about the racers, but the album title really is himself name "George Harrison".

Peace.

Yeah, he wrote "Faster" for Jackie Stewart racer his close friend and George was ever mad about races. He bought himself a race car and played as a toy running sometimes with that...he COULD DO such things... LOL[:D]
