George Harrison – Dark Horse (1974) (Japanese Pressing) [Toshiba-EMI TOCP-65543]

George Harrison’s third studio album following the break-up of The Beatles was recorded in September and October 1974 and rushed to stores in time for a North American concert tour by Harrison and friends (Nov. 2 - Dec. 20, 1974). The album received decidedly mixed reviews but sold well, reaching #4 on the U.S. album charts. It features the hit singles “Dark Horse” and “Ding Dong, Ding Dong,” which reached #15 and #36 respectively.

The album is notable for showcasing Harrison’s acute laryngitis which ruined most of the tracks on the album, and marred the concerts on the North American tour (dubbed by fans and critics as the “Dark Hoarse” tour) in late 1974.

Strangely, “Dark Horse” and its follow-up, “Extra Texture” (the last album of new material issued on Apple Records by Harrison) are the only two albums in his rock music catalog not to be remastered and expanded by EMI.
