Credited to George Harrison
The Dark Horse label was founded by George Harrison in 1974 to allow him time and space to fully express himself as a songwriter and musician. Although it
would be two years before his contractual obligations with EMI were fulfilled, in those two years eight albums were released by the label, so Dark Horse was
ready for George's arrival.
The DVD is another fine job from “Abbey Road Interactive”. Contents includes a 10 minute promotional EPK for the box set, 7 promotional videos (including 2 for “Got My Mind Set On You”), 4 performances from “Live In Japan” and 3 clips from “Shanghai Surprise”. A surprise omission is the video for “Blow Away”.
The DVD which is packaged in a 44 page hardback booklet (GHBOOK 1), is set in a pouch within the back cover. The contents of the book include an article by
Olivia, an essay by David Fricke of Rolling Stone magazine (both dated November 2003), many photographs, press clippings, comments on the inspiration behind
the Dark Horse label, various transparencies and artist drafts for the label.
The boxset is housed in a flip top box, similar in size and scope to John's Anthology.
All-in-all this is a long awaited set that doesn't disappoint !
