Released in December 1974, Dark Horse capped a prolific year for George, during which he had established his own Dark Horse record label, built a recording studio in his Friar Park home in England, and completed an ambitious tour of North America.  Throughout the year, Harrison produced albums for several artists while also recording his own.

Released in December 1974, Dark Horse capped a prolific year for George, during which he had established his own Dark Horse record label, built a recording studio in his Friar Park home in England, and completed an ambitious tour of North America.  Throughout the year, Harrison produced albums for several artists while also recording his own.

The songs on the LP document both George’s fallibility, in “Simply Shady,” and his spirituality, in “It Is ‘He’ (Jai Sri Krishna).”  Dark Horse reached the top five in America, sounding a high note at the end of Harrison’s rather frenetic year.

The latest release adds “I Don’t Care Anymore,” a sought after B-side making its CD debut, and a previously unreleased early, acoustic take of “Dark Horse.” The CD booklet includes newly written historical notes by Kevin Howlett.

“To write a song is, to me, more a case of being the vehicle to get over that feeling of that moment, of that time.”

George Harrison
