"Give me plenty of that guitar" ...
An album that as the stylus hits the vinyl immediately strikes you as being vibrant and upbeat. All the more remarkable when it was recorded in the last couple of months before George's passing.

Art direction and photography by thenewno2    ("I'm not a number ...")
Photographs of George by Brian Roylance.

The vinyl L.P. comes in a gatefold sleeve, with a stiff card inner sleeve. Plus a LARGE 12-page booklet featuring the lyrics and photographs.
The C.D. comes in a gatefold sleeve with the same pictures as on the L.P. (but smaller !), and the C.D. hides a picture of what is the label on the vinyl (as above). It includes a 16-page booklet featuring the lyrics and photographs.
The CD/DVD comes in a 6" x 5" clamshell box, containing - the C.D. as listed above, A picture DVD containing footage relating to the making of the album, a 21" x 14" double-sided poster with a great black and white picture of George on one side, and the Brainwashed art on the other.

The album entered the U.K. album chart on 24th November 2002 at no.52.

With the release of the Any Road single, the album was "repackaged" on 12th May 2003 and re-promoted.
What this in fact entailed, was one cardboard slipcover matching the picture on the single wrapped around the standard album. No track changes and scant evidence of any advertising to be seen.

"There never was a time when you or I did not exist.
Nor will there be any future when we shall cease to be.
