I think this album is often quite overlooked. It has some great songs on it including So Sad, Maya Love, Far East Man & the title track.
George was quite tired by this stage of his carear & possibly needed a good break from recording but went ahead. His voice shows how fed up he possibly was but overall it is not a bad album.
Some of his great melodies are on here & the guitar work is pretty good.
As a guitarist George was a genius who had an incredible tone. he was very very underated!
The front cover of the album is quite impressive though and the inlay is a funny tribute to the Mel Brooks film The Producers.

At the time the Beatles broke up, I would have predicted that an album like this one (and the next several, as well) would be the George Harrison solo output. Unfortunately, with the superb albums All Things Must Pass and Living in the Material World, George had raised the bar so high that this album comes in as a disappointment. Some of the blame can be laid on the unwell condition of his voice, but really the only songs in the album that suffer from this are \"So Sad\", \"Ding Dong Ding Dong\", and maybe \"Bye Bye Love\"--one may argue that \"Dark Horse\" is actually a better song for the unusual, strained vocals. An okay album.

This album is easy to skip. There\'s nothing new and nothing special compared to All Things Must Pass and Living In The Material World. Not a memorable song on it.

BeatleBeatle and I disagree on everything. I think George spread himself a little thin here. There are only 9 songs, one of which is a cover/rip off (ByeByeLove) with bitter undertones toward Patty and Eric Clapton, one is an instrumental (Hari's On Tour) without half the charm of later instrumental songs Greece or Marwa Blues, and one is a co-written flop with Ron Wood. (Far East Man)
It is however, better than anything else released by a Beatle in the mid 1970's so who cares.

Despite a sickened voice, George delivers a strong album with some of his best guitar work ever.
If you know this album you can review it.
