Recorded at F.P.S.H.O.T. from 24th May to 13th September 1976.
On 26th January 1976 The Beatles nine year contract with E.M.I. expired. On 27th January George wasted no time on signing
to a new label ... his own ... Dark Horse Records. At this time Dark Horse are distributed by A&M records, and when George
set up the deal in 1974 he signed a contract stating that the first solo album that George produces on Dark Horse will be
ready by 25th June 1976 (George's 33 1/3 birthday !) and A&M gave George an advance of One Million dollars.
But in the spring of 1976 George had a bad bout of Hepatitis and could not meet the due date for delivery.
In a bad month, on 7th September 1976 George is found guilty of "Subconcious plagiarism" for "My Sweet Lord", and on the
28th A&M sued George for TEN million dollars for failing to deliver the album. Basically, A&M had already decided that the
deal that they had arranged with George was not such a good deal and they were simply looking for a way out.
The album design and photography were by Bob Cato, with hand lettering by Mike Manoogian.
The pictures inside the gatefold sleeve which were all taken in the Friar Park grounds, are all labelled, with the picture
top left entitled "33 1/3 and his Dad".
