Early George Harrison Box Set Coming Soon

It's been ten years since the release of the first semi-career spanning George Harrison box set, The Dark Horse Years 1976-92. Universal Music and Capitol Records are finally following up on that now out-of-print collection with The Apple Years 1968-75. The seven-disc set will consist of Harrison's first six solo albums, from the experimental instrumental albums Wonderwall Music and Electronic Sound through his masterpiece All Things Must Pass and onto Living in the Material World, Dark Horse, and Extra Texture (Read All About It). The seventh disc is a DVD of bits and pieces from the era. Each CD features newly remastered and restored sound and is available both in mini-LP covers in the set and digipaks individually. Most of the discs include bonus tracks too. Pre-order now on Amazon.com here:
