Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

After enjoying the songs for years, I finally bought the Traveling Wilburys album. Harrison was remarkable and often got overshadowed by the adoration of Lennon / McCartney. Thank you for the reminder of just how good he was.

What? No "Got My Mind Set On You"??

Great set regardless of that one omission! George Harrison was one of those guys that I think didn't get anywhere near enough attention in the band as Paul and John were always getting all of the attention. Kind of like Ringo he was there but not really there for a lot of people which is too bad as he was a brilliant musician in his own right.

I agree with Jamie and Linda about George Harrison. I enjoyed his solo work, and that first Traveling Wilbury's album is one of my favorites.

Good set. If it is humanly possible, I agree that Harrison was definitely the "under-appreciated" Beatle.

The Beatles were part of my 'coming of age', and I don't anyone in my age group will ever forget our first view of them!

Ah we're still with the Beatles - great! George was a great musician but as the youngest of the group was a little overshadowed by the others for a long time I think.
