George Harrison's 'Brainwashed' album

George Harrison's final album, 'Brainwashed'

When George Harrison passed away in 2001, it was well known that he had been working hard towards completing an album of new songs, and ukulele fans knew that, given George's enthusiasm for the uke and ukulele banjo in his later years, the uke was bound to feature heavily on the tracks he had recorded!

The world didn't have long to wait to hear Harrison's last album, as it was only a matter of a few months before the announcement was made that Jeff Lynne had collaborated with George's son Dhani on finishing off the tracks that George had started, and the album Brainwashed was released in within a year of George's passing.

Brainwashed delighted Harrison fans and was hailed as a worthy finale to the legend's career, the eleven new songs sounding fresh and beautifully crafted, full of feeling and timelessly melodic - there was also a catchy cover of the 1920s Arlen/Koehler classic Between The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.

The ukulele world was not disappointed with the album, finding as expected, that several of the songs featured the uke and banjo-uke.

It's a great, tuneful album, uplifting and easy to listen to - go and get it!
