George Harrison - Early Takes Volume 1 - The Independent

04 May 2012
The Independent

There's a simplicity about these previously unreleased demos that's beguiling, allowing the sweeter side of Harrison to shine unencumbered by studio blandishments. The impression is of a gentle soul in love with the immediacy of music, while the material - from demos of 'My Sweet Lord' and 'Awaiting on You All' to deliciously delicate covers of 'Let It Be Me' and Dylan's 'Mamma You've Been on My Mind' - produces a tone of reconciliation and forgiveness.

Particularly engaging are country number 'Behind That Locked Door' and gentle country-blues 'Woman Don't You Cry for Me'., showcasing nimble strumming and picking.
