"This is not a top ten lp or something you'll fined on the charts, It's just george playing at home on his new toy."

"With nearly 44 minutes of ambient music, George Harrison explores the emerging potential of the Moog synthesizer in producing atmospheric sounds.

Released on May 9, 1969, on the Zapple label - with the cover art by Harrison - the two numbers, Under the Mersey Wall and No Time or Space, are pop art at its most impressionistic, with an assist by Bernie Krause on the latter.

Harrison forged an incomplete path with the synthesizer as a solo instrument - abandoning the release of such experiments - but it was sonic satisfaction, nonetheless."
I can't believe I bought this three times so far...

"I bought an excellent condition used LP, I bought the Apple CD from the 1990s, and now I own the Japanese mini-LP. And all this time, I've known it's not a great album. George messes around with a brand-new Moog synthesizer on two 22 minute tracks. From what I remember, one track has two Moogs and may have been edited. The other track has just one Moog and doesn't seem to have been edited. It's not really very interesting. Bernie Krause had something to do with the more polished track.

The cover is great, though. And in 1969, to see a Beatle thumbing his nose at the industry was refreshing. Plus, it was one of only two Zapple Records releases, which was supposed to be Apple's avant-garde label. Hence the incomprehensible five stars I give it. It's a collector's item; if you're looking for killer George Harrison music, look elsewhere."
