As a Beatle and then as a solo artist, "Harrison blended earthy Roots tones with droning eastern influences and cascading melodies… The sound was organic and blooming, huge yet worldly. His songs unfolded unpredictably and took the listener to unfamiliar sonic regions. Music enthusiasts credit him for integrating eastern sounds into western music" (Rolling Stone). Harrison complements recollections of his career with facsimiles of his original manuscript lyrics for 83 songs, including "Here Comes the Sun" and "Something," annotating each with the story behind its creation.
