New Old Stock Tunes: Rare Harrison

It’s hard enough knowing your history and culling the archives to find all of those old gems of music from the past, but it’s even harder staying on top of new releases of albums made then but not released until now. Hidden away as B-sides, small released albums on small labels and just the general time required to go through countless songs until one clicks make it all the more difficult (and rewarding) when you finally find the right artist or song recorded in the past but not released until now. I’m planning for this to be a multi-part series and already have a few more artists and songs I cannot wait to share.

I’ll start off with some new (old) George Harrison from 1970’s “All Things Must Pass,” the songI live for you” wasn’t included on the original release due to Harrison not being happy with the drum track and wasn’t made available until 2001’s re-release and re-mastering of the album. When I first heard it I was entirely taken back by how strong it was and-dare I say- possibly the best song on the album? Top 3 at least, definitely as strong as Isn’t it a pity? The slide guitar and soaring vocals are some of the strongest I’ve heard from George.

George Harrison – I live for you

On the same note and artist, is a song George Harrison put together for the score of the 1967 film Wonderwall. “In the First Place” finds George at his psychedelic peak and tracing a similar path to that of Blue Jay Way. It’s a great slice of his first solo material that is essentially a lost Beatles song that wasn’t released until 1999.

Now all there is to hold out for is that 27 minute take of Helter Skelter…
