If you'd like to participate in the *ahem* rapidly growing field of LP-sleeve Analysis, just click here to email your post. The format of contributions is pretty much self-evident from the posts below. Tip: It pays to take your time and contemplate your chosen sleeve for a while - try and resist the urge to just 'burst into print' as it were - it's better to let it ferment (or should that be fester ;) for a while, then fine-tune your submission until it 'reads' just right!
George was perceived as the quiet thoughtful Beatle - the mystic - a perception he seemed happy to cultivate after The Beatles split ...

George Harrison - All Things Must Pass
  • Ah yes, peaceful contemplation of a garden. Or else that showbiz circus ... pah!
  • For verily I say unto you, all is transient - even The Beatles!
  • Now let me alone awhile, perchance to meditate ...
    Behold, there is a beetle in my garden!
  • *thinks* Hmm, that's deep. Heck, that's very deep!

  • George was also the youngest Beatle by a couple of years - a big difference when you're a teenager - and the other Beatles tended to treat him as a kind of junior member, a bit of a 'newb' if you like. One consequence was that his songs were mostly passed over in favour of Lennon/McCartney compositions, thus at the time of the split he had a considerable backlog of unrecorded material. Still, he went on to have the first solo Beatle No.1 hit, with the entirely appropiate (for George) "My Sweet Lord".
    yollie pointed out "Just wanted to say ... he looks like he is passing something himself!" Hmm yes yollie, now that you mention it ... as a "Seeker after Truth" maybe George should've called the album ...
