George Harrison (1943–2001) was an English musician who gained international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles. With his songwriting contributions limited by the dominance of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Harrison was the first member of the Beatles to release a solo album.

Gone Troppo was, even by George Harrison's uneven solo standards, a notable flop. Blame might fall on an aging target audience, to Harrison's refusal to promote it, to his quarrelsome label, to MTV-era production missteps. Despite having spent a lengthy period tangling with Warners Bros. Harrison had found a new center within his marriage and the birth of a child. Harrison also issued a tough 1984 update of Bob Dylan’s largely forgotten I Don’t Want To Do It prior to joining forces with the producer/superfan Lynne, but by then he was in the midst of a five-year period between albums. Harrison guessed that it was an outgrowth of his general distaste for stardom, coupled with changing trends.

George Harrison Anthology. The final version was take six, which also included an overdub of the harmony vocals and two drum sticks being hit together during the middle eight. With the overdubs, this final version became known as take eight. Not sure, but that’s just what I think.

We don’t care, we don’t want to know!’ But he kept going on about it. Fonda: looked at me and said, ‘You’re making me feel like I’ve never been born. I said, ‘Oh, fuck you!’ and they said, ‘Well, we’ll do i. I think George played bass. Possibly, what was really at issue was an understanding that McCartney couldn’t have a credible say on the track because he hadn’t participated in that incident’s acid trip. The album that resulted from these sessions, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, would be seen immediately as the greatest artistic expansion of the Beatles’ career – a surprise move from a band that some had thought was passé – and as the apotheosis of psychedelic imagination.

George’s first song to appear on a Beatles’ album was ‘Don’t Bother Me’ from the band’s second album, With The Beatles. He wrote it while ill in bed during the summer of 1963 when The Beatles were playing some concerts in Bournemouth, on the south coast of England. According to George it was as an exercise to see if he could write a song, and at least it showed me that all I needed to do was keep on writing, and then maybe eventually I would write something good. Recorded in June 1966 ‘I Want To Tell You’ is the third of Harrison’s Revolver compositions and it is another song with a less than traditional structure, showing George’s considerable creativity, both lyrically and musically. For Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band George did have just one of his songs included, another Indian influenced number, and according to John Lennon one of George’s best songs, ‘Within You, Without You’.
