Track Nº 4 George Harrison's 33 & 1/3 is the most melodic solo Beatles album. Even more so than Band on The Run, Ram, Imagine or Mind Games, Thirty-three and a Third is pure melody. Each tune is crafted with exquisite elegance & melodic sophistication, and George's vocals & guitar playing are at their very best. There simply isn't a weak tune to be found here. "Woman Don't You Cry For Me" features some of Harrison's best slide work. "Dear One" is haunting in the great Harrisong tradition of "Long, Long, Long" and "Who Can See It." "Beautiful Girl" is an absolutely gorgeous song, with fantastic singing.
"This Song" is a driving tune full of acerbic comment & great guitar solos. "See Yourself" is an elegant, melodic song that effortlessly jumps through different time signatures. "It's What You Value" has a great R & B groove, while Harrison's version of "True Love" is, in my opinion, definitive.
"Pure Smokey" is a beautiful song with some absolutely sublime guitar solos; this is Harrison's most underrated song. "Crackerbox Palace" was a major U.S. hit, and deservedly so. With a catchy Reggae groove and fantastic guitar work, it's a classic. And as far as underrated love songs go, "Learning How To Love You" may be the ultimate example. This is truly an incredible song, and had it been released by the Beatles it would now be a standard.
The bonus "Tears Of The World" is actually from the Somewhere In England era. With it's serious social comment & a memorable melody, it's still a very welcome addition to 33 & 1/3. Enjoy!
