Credited to George Harrison

Obvious tracks all taken after the E.M.I. era, from George's own "Dark Horse" records, featuring:
1 track from the 1976 album, Thirty Three & 1/3
3 tracks from the 1979 album, George Harrison
2 tracks from the 1981 album, Somewhere In England
2 tracks from the 1982 album, Gone Troppo ... (+1 on the C.D. only)
3 tracks from the 1987 album, Cloud Nine
1 track from a film soundtrack album
and 2 previously unreleased tracks, both recorded in the spring of 1989.

What was surprising was it's non-appearance in the album chart. One would have thought that collecting together the best tracks from albums a lot of people had missed, would create some healthy sales ... but once again the album was not promoted with any real effort. Even in America it only reaches number 132 !

Cover was by Terry O'Neill and "Wherefore Art"
