George Harrison: Gone Troppo (1982)
I think that some reviewers were a little too harsh in reviewing this record. The problem is that George released his best work near the beginning of his solo career and I think it was hard for him to equal that. The other thing is that the record suffers a bit from mediocre 80s production. But, I think this is a far better album than some reviewers would have you believe, apart from the last track, which is really not very good at all.
It's too bad that the Beatles didn't record more of his songs. Sometimes, I think he wrote the best of the Beatles songs.
I dislike the album jacket.
