Songs by George Harrison Volume Two

George Harrison

In 1985 artist Keith West was introduced to George Harrison and so began a close collaboration to produce a stunning set of watercolours illustrating the composer's many memorable songs.

This second volume is beautifully illustrated and contains fifty-nine further songs by George Harrison, including such classics as 'My Sweet Lord', 'Something' and 'All Things Must Pass'.

The method of production entailed the completion of detailed pencil studies after careful discussion on all the lyrics. Keith, one of the finest botanical watercolour artists in the world, soon found himself travelling regularly from his cottage in North Wales to Oxfordshire to discuss with George the interpretations of his song lyrics in order to prepare the illustrations for this volume. To complement these delightful images the artist has hand-lettered the words to the songs. The lyrics are embellished with additional small paintings that posses an irresistible charm.

A recording of four previously unreleased tracks from George is provided, with the choice of vinyl or CD format. Songs by George Harrison Volume One can be viewed here.
