Next week, Universal Music Group will release the George Harrison box set The Apple Years 1968-75, which collects Harrison’s first six solo albums, as well as a treasure trove of rare and unreleased songs. One of those bonus tracks is an instrumental alternate take of “The Inner Light,” a 1968 Beatles song that the band released as the B-side of the “Lady Madonna” single. Harrison recorded the song’s instrumental track in Mumbai, with Indian musicians, when he was working on his first solo album, the soundtrack LP Wonderwall Music. - Stereogum
