THE ALBUM OF THE DAY
GEORGE HARRISON...Gone Troppo (1982)
(CD, vinyl)
1982's Gone Troppo just kinda sneaked out on its release day with hardly any promotion of any kind...no advertising, no mention in the music trade papers and certainly no tour. Perhaps George just thought "hey, here's my new music, like it or don't." This author certainly likes it. It has been described by many as perhaps the worst solo Beatle album, which I wholeheartedly disagree with. "Wake Up My Love", "Dream Away" and "Mystical One" are the highlights. This is today's Album Of The Day to pay tribute to George on the 10th anniversary of his death
