Where to Buy:
Cherished by fans and collectors, I Me Mine is the closest we will come to George Harrison’s autobiography. Featuring George in conversation with Derek Taylor, the book illuminates the inspiration and meaning behind many of George’s songs, while touching on everything from growing up in Liverpool and early Beatlemania to his love of India, gardening and racing cars.
Originally released in 1980 as a hand-bound limited edition, with over fifty archival photos, Harrison’s words, and his song lyrics, this book offers an insight into the musician’s life, work and philosophy. Now I Me Mine has been re-issued as I Me Mine: The Extended Edition, presenting the lyrics to 141 George Harrison songs, with handwritten lyrics beautifully reproduced in facsimile, accompanied by Harrison’s uniquely intimate and humorous commentary.
This edition has been expanded to include 59 new songs; as well as tracks written for The Beatles, it also contains lyrics from Harrison’s solo career, including his albums All Things Must Pass and Brainwashed.
I Me Mine: The Extended Edition presents for the first time a complete compendium of Harrison’s musical career and his writing. With written contributions from Olivia Harrison and Derek Taylor, original cover art by Shepard Fairey, and a wealth of previously unpublished material, the new edition is a treasured portrait of George Harrison and his music.
