I Me Mine

The Extended Edition

George Harrison

Cherished by fans and collectors, I ME MINE is the closest we will come to George Harrison's biography.

This 2016 edition has been significantly developed since the book's first printing in 1980. In his own words I ME MINE now covers the full span of Harrison's life and work with lyrics to 141 songs (59 more than any previous edition), an extended text commentary and new photographs.

Presented as both a limited edition at 632 pages, the entire work is reproduced in full colour throughout and is presented for Genesis subscribers as an exclusive book and vinyl boxed set of only 1,000 numbered and signed copies worldwide.


I ME MINE is also presented as an Open Edition available in all good bookstores globally.

Part 1

I Me Mine

Part 1 of I ME MINE offers readers the story of George Harrison's life and music in his own words, and those of his friend and collaborator, Derek Taylor.

Taylor and Harrison's partnership began with a column for The Daily Express and continued for many years; here they write candidly about The Beatles' rise to fame, Harrison's solo career, and his philosophy and spirituality. This is a fascinating insight into Harrison's childhood, and his inspirations and projects - from making albums to planting new gardens, and organising the world's first ever relief concert in aid of Bangladesh.

'A book which tells the story of growing up, not necessarily the hard way but certainly not the easy way, for no matter how greatly privilege and wealth may have seemed to grace the Beatles' evolution, "easy" is not the word for what happened to them on their way to what has come to be known as The Top.'  Derek Taylor

The Photographs

I Me Mine

I ME MINE contains 53 rare photographs, capturing George Harrison's early years; his many concerts with The Beatles and solo, and time spent relaxing at Formula One races and in Maui.

For this Extended Edition, more photos have been unearthed and restored and the resulting collection prepared for colour printing. A unique view is provided of Harrison's world, his early days, and his friends and collaborators through the years.

'The truth within us has to be realised: when you realise that everything else that you see and do and touch and smell isn't real, then you may know what reality is and can answer the question "who am I?"'  George Harrison

Part 2

I Me Mine

Part 2 of I ME MINE is a treasury of Harrison's song writing. 141 of the musician's songs are charted in chronological order, explored in handwritten lyrics reproduced in facsimile, typeset lyrics and a commentary narrated by Harrison himself.

The resulting collection provides an unparalleled insight into Harrison's writing process, and the creation of the songs that so many have come to know and love. For the first time, I ME MINE covers the full span of Harrison's life, from his earliest songs to his last compositions in 2001. The wit and insight of Harrison's commentaries, and the beauty of his lyrics, make this an essential for any lover of his work.

'Writing a song is like going to confession... writing songs to try and find out, to see who you are.'   George Harrison
