George Harrison‘s solo album releases will be collected in a box set that will be released Feb. 24, the Harrison estate announced Jan. 17. The set, which Harrison’s son Dhani Harrison previewed in a picture on social media in December, will feature the albums reproduced as they were originally released and in their original cover sleeves. The vinyl albums were remastered from the original analog master tapes at Capitol Studios.
The set will also include the two-LP set Live In Japan along with set exclusives of two 12” single picture discs of ’80s hit singles “When We Was Fab” and “Got My Mind Set On You.” The albums will also be available separately, though Harrison’s 1970 triple-LP masterwork All Things Must Pass will be a limited edition release, the estate said.
Also announced was the release of a new commemorative George Harrison Essential III turntable manufactured and designed by Pro-Ject Audio Systems. The turntable is limited to 2,500 units worldwide. Pro-Ject released a commemorative Beatles turntable in December. An “extended” version of Harrison’s 1980 book “I Me Mine” with song lyrics and memorabilia but now in color is also being released.
