Press Release: Parlophone Is Proud To Announce The Re-Issue Of George Harrison’s 1973 No.1 Album Living In The Material World On Monday 25th September 2006.
LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD was George’s second solo album. Five weeks after its release in May 1973, the LP and its single “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)” simultaneously occupied the Number One positions on the US albums and singles charts.
The CD will be issued in two formats. Both will contain the album, which has been re-mastered at Abbey Road studios from the original analogue tapes.
The new version also includes two additional tracks. These are “Deep Blue” (originally a B side from 1971) and “Miss O’Dell” (the B side of “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)”).
The regular jewel case version will contain a booklet with lyrics and extra photographs. There will also be a special limited edition that will include an expanded 40-page booklet and a very unique DVD featuring:
• Rare footage of George performing “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)” from his 1991 Japanese tour with Eric Clapton.
• A mini-feature using film commissioned by George in 1973 of the album production in Britain and America.
• Previously unreleased versions of “Miss O’Dell” and “Sue Me, Sue You Blues” set to visuals of unseen archival material.
A “Living In The Material World” microsite will be launched from GeorgeHarrison.com closer to release date, with exclusive audio previews from the album, a radio documentary and exclusive merchandise in the web shop. More information to follow.
