  • This was a deleted track from the original 1981 version of George Harrison's "Somewhere In England" LP, which was included on the 2004 rerelease of the album. An alternate slower mix was eventually released as part of a CD single included with the book Songs By George Harrison. >>

  • Gary from Staten Island, NyJust wanted to make a slight correction here.

    The alternate, slower mix which was released as part of a CD single/book is also the same one that popped up on the ITUNES version of "Somewhere In England" in 2007. Neither version of the song was included on the 2004 CD re-release of the album.

    Warner Brothers really goofed on this one and robbed Harrison of a sure hit. The faster, edited intended for release version which was supposed to come out on the original 1980 LP, is my all time favorite song and has been since I first heard it on February 2, 1983. It's the greatest song never heard.

    I thank you.
