ORGAN THING OF THE DAY:  We make no secret of the fact that we’re really enjoying Shepard Fairey colour pallet right now.  The pop artist has just unveiled a new George Harrison portrait…

“I was honored to be asked by Dhani and Olivia Harrison to work on a portrait poster to coincide with the major reissue of George Harrison’s first six solo albums, released between 1968 and 1975 on The Beatles’ Apple Records label, digitally remastered from the original analogue masters. The Apple Years 1968-75 will be available on CD and digitally on September 22. Designed to complement Harrison’s 2004 collection, The Dark Horse Years 1976-92, the new box features an exclusive DVD with several video pieces, including a new seven-minute film with previously unreleased footage. The Apple Years box also includes an exclusive perfect-bound book with an introduction by Dhani Harrison, new essays by award-winning radio producer and author Kevin Howlett, and rare and previously unpublished images”.

Poster For George will be offered in two editions, Red, and Silver. Both editions limited to 400 signed and numbered copies. Red edition available from Obey Giant web store on 10/23/14 at a random time between 10am and 12pm PST. 1 per household/person.
