The Dark Horse Years 19761992 DVD
In interspersing brief interview segments with seven promotional spots, The Dark Horse Years 19761992 offers a glimpse at the soul of George Harrison, but unfortunately its far too fleeting to make a lasting impression. Originally packaged as part of the similarly titled box set that was issued earlier this year, the DVD is, quite simply, too short on material to make any sort of grand, sweeping statement about the quiet Beatle. Sure, the playful videos which include his sarcastic mini-film for This Song and his rumor-launching, zany visuals for When We Was Fab as well as the quartet of songs plucked from his tour with Eric Clapton are all interesting to watch, but the three extracts from the Sean Penn-Madonna flick Shanghai Surprise are significantly less essential. Although, his lighthearted sense of humor and his genuine joie de vivre certainly shine through the collection, it ultimately doesnt go far enough to really give Harrison his due.
This is the first installment of a seven-part series, which will examine each
album in The Dark Horse Years 19761992. The entire boxed set is rated: ½
