"I want to tell you, my head is filled with things to say." -- George Harrison, 1966
This is without a doubt the most beautiful and longest awaited biography of George Harrison to date!
There are many lovely previously unpublished photographs. I loved the one of tween George sunning himself with family friends, father Harold Sr. and brother Peter, in or about 1954. You can see that Peter is the spitting image of Harold and George was a little French boy. There is an especially nice picture of Louise and Harold Sr. at a dance in the late 1940. They were from all accounts a loving couple who literally welcomed their 4 young Harrisons with love.
It was such a treat reading about various Harrison family members. It is plain and has been well documented that George was not only created by love, but was literally born into love. From 1965-1969, Louise Harrison lent her voice to a column in a newsletter in a fan club newsletter honoring her son.
Postcards George had written various friends and family members; sketches from his school workbooks all paint young George Harrison into sharper focus. As a bonus treat, readers enjoy the inclusion of quotes by various family members, such as George's sisters-in-law, brothers, fellow Beatles and sundry friends.
I have long thought George and Paul were the most interesting of the Beatles. George's love for Eastern music and his life-long bond with Ravi Shankar, whom he met in 1965 is beautifully chronicled in this book. George's home Friar Park is included, from its "evolution" to its finished state, metaphoric in that it parallels George's "evolution" to that of gardener, a passion he inherited from both Harold Sr. and Louise.
One thing I've long wanted to explore was George's Catholic roots. Louise French Harrison was Catholic and had George baptized when he was nearly 1 month old. George's Catholic roots remained with him for his entire life. He had a beautiful statue of Blessed Mother Mary on the grounds of Friar Park. While George explored Eastern religion and philosophy, he recognized that the precepts of all faiths are very similar.
This book is a MUST HAVE for all George Harrison fans. Again, this book is a gift that will keep on giving.
Be sure to read "Before He Was Fab : George Harrison's First American Visit," which George's sister co-authored and "My Kid Brother's Band" which was written by George's sister, Louise.

Excellent film about the most unknown Beatle......and it's about time. George had such an immense contributing talent which seemed to be always overlooked. This insightful history of George gives you an idea of who he was, how he lived his life and what was important to him. Our hats are off to you, Olivia, for sharing your man with us.........and the biggest kudos to you, Uncle Marty, for your ingenoius talent of making celluloid come to life.
