With a Little Help from my Friends
Mr. Richard D. Coreno | Berea, Ohio USA | 04/21/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The first official solo album by a member of the Beatles, the first album released by Apple Records - and the first deleted from its catalog - George Harrison composed and produced nearly 46 minutes of mostly instrumental tracks for this movie soundtrack.

Released on November 1, 1968, the eight tracks recorded in England feature Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Tony Ashton and Peter Tork, while the 11 songs recorded on India highlight musicians from that nation. It provides a glimpse into the artistic talents of Harrison, when provided with the latitude to create, without the pull of commercial appeal, while giving a brief flicker of light to the initial thrust of Apple.

The soundtrack remains one of the most intriguing solo works by a Beatle, during a period when each member began to expand their individual artistic visions, while not within the framework of the band."
Wonderful pleasure

"A forgotten masterpiece, according to my personal taste. Incredibly considered ugly and meaningless by most of those days critics."
My Initiation Into World Music

"I got a little taste of what music from India might sound like with the inclusion of "Within You Without You" on "Sgt. Pepper's". I got an even better impression of it from this incredibly diverse and unique soundtrack from Mr. Harrison. There's some pop-py material, some old-fashioned dancehall stuff, some western-styled tunes and a lot of Indian music to be discovered on this disc. It's all instrumental and it's very interesting, moving and melodic. I listen to it at least a few times every year since I first bought it on vinyl when I was an impressionable eleven-year old. It has had a huge influence on me as a musician and songwriter all these years. George was light years ahead of his time- "Wonderwall Music" is that amazing. I'm in awe of how fresh this material still sounds. Don't deny yourself this bliss. Check It Out!"
