Somewhere In England with George
Posted:Wednesday, 09/04/2013 at 04:09am by Greg Easterling
We hit the midpoint of our week this morning with a copy of an early Eighties George Harrison album that I picked up recently, Somewhere In England, released in 1981. As usual, nothing but the finest studio cats to back George up, many of them his friends like drummer Jim Keltner. Ringo is also here too. The album's best known song is the single, "All Those Years Ago", a tribute to John Lennon who had been gunned down the previous year. We heard it on Side 1 which also contains George's recording of the song, "Baltimore Oriole", a standard written by Hoagy Carmichael, once recorded by Chicago's Cryin' Shames.
