George Harrison - Beware of ABKCO!
Compilation - Strawberry Records 1994 - STR 001 - SB 6
Comments: Nice compilation of demos for Harrison's "All Things Must Pass" album. In 1970, George Harrison, wanting to prove the Beatles had held him back as a songwriter, immediately began work on a triple-album once the Beatles' demise was announced. He enlisted producer Phil Spector to produce the album and in May recorded a set of demos for Phil Spector. During the recording of the demos, George Harrision changed a line in the song "Beware of Darkness" to "Beware of ABKCO" (Allan B Klein Company).
Below are the words in one of the songs referring to ABKCO:
Beware of Darkness "Beware of Darkness" Watch out now, Take care Beware of falling swingers Falling all around you The pain that often Lingers In your fingertips Beware of darkness Watch out now, Take care beware the thoughts that linger, Winding up inside your head. The hopelessness around you in the dead of night, Beware of Sadness. It can hit you, It will hurt you, Aching more and make you sore And that is not what you are here for. Watch out now, Take care beware of soft shoe shufflers, Dancing down the sidewalks. Pushing you in puddles in the dead of night, Beware of ABKCO. Watch out now, Take care beware of falling swingers, Crashing all around you The pain that often lingers in your fingertips, Beware of Darkness
