George Harrison: The Album

George Harrison was an LP recorded at Harrison's home at Friar Park from July through November of 1978. The album was released on February 23, 1979. At the time of recording, Harrison was married to Olivia Trinidad Arias, and his son Dhani had recently been born, making this time in Harrison's life tranquil and satisfying. The LP was remastered and reissued in 2004, separately and as part of the boxed set called The Dark Horse Years 1976-1992.

The track list was as follows:

Love Comes to Everyone
Not Guilty
Here Comes the Moon
Soft-Hearted Hana
Blow Away
Dark Sweet Lady
Your Love Is Forever
Soft Touch
If You Believe

George Harrison played guitars, bass, and did lead and backing vocals; Eric Clapton played guitar on "Love Comes to Everyone"; Willie Weeks played bass; Ray Cooper played percussion; Andy Newark played drums; Neil Larson played keyboards and mini-moog; Steve Winwood played poly-moog, harmonium, and did backing vocals; Gary Wright played the oberheim; Gayle Levant played harp; and Del Newman did string and horn arrangements.
