The Bicycle Music Company wishes George a happy 74th on this day February 25, 2017.
In celebration of this very special birthday weekend the Harrison family have released George Harrison – The Vinyl Collection box set, I Me Mine – The Extended Edition book release & special limited edition turntable.
George Harrison – The Vinyl Collection box set features all of George Harrison’s solo studio albums in one collection for the first time. All the discs are 180-gram heavyweight vinyl and are housed in a high-quality two-piece rigid slipcase box. The original analogue master tapes were used for the new re-masters and were cut at the legendary Capitol studios to ensure exceptional audio quality throughout. The individual albums from the collection will also be available separately, with All Things Must Pass as a limited edition title.
George Harrison’s autobiography, I Me Mine originally published by the specialist book publisher, Genesis Publications in 1980. It became the first of many collaborations between George and Genesis founder, Brian Roylance. In conversation with his friend and former Beatles press officer Derek Taylor, and in a first-person commentary that accompanies his songs, Harrison’s own words recount everything from his upbringing in Liverpool to early Beatlemania, his spirituality and philosophy. This new extended version of the book now spans the complete length of Harrison’s career in music, told in his words and through 141 songs with hand-written lyric sheets faithfully reproduced in full color. Now stretching to 632 pages it features lyrics to more than 50 songs not previously included, as well as new photographs, many unpublished until now.
