|U.K. Album Chart Detail :
For the making of Martin Scorsese’s GEORGE HARRISON: LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD much of George's history was uncovered.
Sifting through layers of rare media clips, private home videos, letters from a young Harrison to his parents, and much more,
the filmmaking team dug deep over a period of years. The result was a complex picture of a remarkable artist and man.
But amidst the archival treasure, nothing captured George Harrison’s human warmth, poetic grace and humor, and individual style as did the music unearthed.
Some of the best of it is gathered here.
It could be described in many ways – raw, unadorned, intimate.
Regardless of what word one chooses to convey its magic, there’s a profound sense that a voice we know and love is coming to us from across time…
and is suddenly closer than ever before. There is a true presence to these recordings.
Lovingly selected, mixed and mastered, these tracks put us in the room. Several were included in the film, some not.
