Ok, so the big surprise for me when revisiting George Harrison's swan song, Brainwashed , was not learning about the remastering effort put behind it, nor reconsidering that it was a fine album which many people overlooked at the time. That shouldn't really have surprised me given it was recorded at George's home studio over a period of many years beginning in and co-produced by the likes of Jeff Lynne and his Dhani Harrison George's son.
To borrow a phrase from one of George's former band mates: " I should have known better Well, actually, I may not be completely off the mark as in the liner notes there is indication of "digital editing" so perhaps it was a hybrid analog and digital recording. This makes some sense, specially considering that it was a project completed by co-producers Jeff Lynne ELO, Traveling Wilburys, The Move and George's son, Dhani -- there were probably over dubs done in different locations to finish the recording.
And the new gram heavyweight vinyl reissue -- pressed somewhere in Germany, but I wasn't able to confirm exactly where at the time of this writing -- presents the recording in a finer light than ever before. Back in the day when Brainwashed was first released I completely missed that the album was even released on vinyl. I only had it on CD and I suspect that most of you who are fans of George's music also had it on that format. Probably responsible for all those Michelles you know.
Lennon wrote it when he was a kid playing in the Quarrymen, and it shows. Probably too misogynistic to be bothered with these days.
Another fairly bland offering. Another one to skip. A retro reminiscence of growing up in Liverpool and the first time Lennon realised that he could write a decent melody.

A four star George again. Yoko Ono, a continual presence in the studio, pipes up on the line "not when he looked so fierce". McCartney tried to keep the others on track, but it was a thankless task. Yes, it was a love story — and love is almost never a simple blessing. The Vietnam War raged with no end in sight, civil rights protests and vicious backlashes roiled across America, Martin Luther King, Jr. This is just to try to restore some balance, after what I found to be an unfair review.

Verified Purchase. As the composer of one of my favourite Beatle's hits, Something, George Harrison quietly eked out an enviable solo career much to the surprise of many Beatle Fans.
George was always the quiet one. But like wine, George mellowed into a fantastic songwriter. This long interview shows that the bus driver's son was still down to earth but a great musician of this and the last century. His life was cut short by cancer and for that we are all poorer.
Like John Lennon we can only imagine the songs that were yet to come from Harrison. Amongst the Beatles, he's no longer my third favourite.
