Tears of the World by George Harrison – ***

First released: 2004

This song was originally recorded and rejected for "Somewhere in England" in 1981. The powers-that-be at Warner Bros. thought this track a little lightweight for a George Harrison LP. As a result, it never saw official release until the George Harrison remasters of 2004, and then it inexplicably ended up on the "33 1/3" release from 1976! It is a nice pleasant tune and certainly should have been released at the time, but I guess Warners wanted something meatier.
