During George Harrison's lifetime, he switched record labels approximately halfway through his solo career. Record labels being greedy, this meant that he actually had to release two greatest hits albums with each representing songs from the particular label's highlights. This release, which came out eight years after his death, resolves this and puts all the songs on one package.

It's a great representation that only has a couple of minor flaws. For one, there were several minor hits that would have been nice to have included here. They're skipped over to include some live versions of his Beatle songs. Had I had a choice I would have skipped the Beatle songs, but maybe the same can't be said for others' preferences. The Bob Dylan written song (that I don't think Bob ever released) from one of the "Porky's" movies is here as well (I Don't Want to Do It). I'm not really sure why.

Rest in Peace, George. Thanks for the great career.
