What Is Life by George Harrison – ****

First released: 1970

The second single from the "All Things Must Pass" set. This song suffers from the same over-produced sound that plagues the rest of the album, but for some reason it works here and became George’s second top 10 single. "What Is Life" is another one of my favorite George Harrison songs of all time. It’s probably because of that great repeating guitar lick. A similar but lighter demo version graces the "All Things Must Pass" CD reissue from 2001. The original turns up again on "The Best of George Harrison" and 2009’s "Let it Roll – Songs by George Harrison". Also performed on George Harrison’s "Live in Japan" album and tour in 1991.
