    Lee, all the Dark Horse titles are coming out the same day, just not in SACD. Each has bonus tracks, and if you are planning on getting them all, get the box set that also includes a DVD.

    The DVD includes:

    DVD Track Listing:

    Euphoric Sounds is also saying that a SACD compilation of George Harrison's work on the Dark Horse label will be released.

    Steve, the box set is coming out in the US on Capital. There has been nothing in the news that the DVD will NOT be included in the US set.

    I have the CD "The Best of Dark Horse." The back says it is manuf. and distributed by Warner Bros. records. That was back in 1989. Not sure if this has changed and perhaps this was part of the cause of the rumor that Warner would be abandoning DVD-A.

    The Harrison family sold the distribution rights of the Dark Horse releases to EMI.

    From Billboard

    Capitol To Reissue George Harrison Catalog

    Capitol has set a Feb. 24 release date for a bonanza of George Harrison reissues originally issued on his Dark Horse imprint. The albums "Thirty Three & 1/3," "George Harrison," "Somewhere in England," "Gone Troppo," "Cloud Nine" and "Live in Japan" have been out-of-print for years. Each has been digitally remastered and bolstered with bonus tracks, new liner notes and rare photographs. A deluxe boxed set, "The Dark Horse Years, 1976-1992," with an exclusive DVD, will also be available.

    The 1992 Billboard Century Award winner had been planning to reissue these albums, as well as his 1973 set "Living in the Material World" and the 1971 live album "The Concert for Bangla Desh" for some time before his death in December 2001. Earlier that year, Capitol released an expanded reissue of his 1970 solo debut "All Things Must Pass."



    The 1976 set "Thirty Three & 1/3" was self-produced by Harrison and sports contributions from Billy Preston, David Foster and Gary Wright. The set has been appended with the bonus cut "Tears of the World" and features comments from Harrison's autobiography, "I Me Mine."

    "George Harrison" was released three years later and featured backing by Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood, among others. It is bolstered here by a demo of album track "Here Comes the Moon." 1981's "Somewhere in England," featuring the John Lennon tribute "All Those Years Ago" with Beatles bandmates Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, now includes a demo of "Save the World."

    "Gone Troppo," released in 1982, is best known for the singles "Wake Up My Love" and "I Really Love You," as well as "Dream Away" from the film "Time Bandits." A demo of "Mystical One" is included as a bonus. 1987's "Cloud Nine" features the smash hit "Got My Mind Set on You" and now includes the bonus cut "Shanghai Surprise."

    Because bonus tracks were not available for "Live in Japan," that album will be reissued as a double-disc Super Audio CD in both stereo and 5.1 surround sound. Taped during a tour of the country in 1991, the set finds Harrison backed by such artists as Clapton and Chuck Leavell as he runs through solo hits and such Beatles classics as "Taxman," "Something," "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and "Here Comes the Sun."

    The 75-minute DVD included in the boxed set will come with a 36-page booklet featuring an essay from Harrison's wife Olivia and liner notes by journalist David Fricke. Archival footage spotlights Harrison discussing his solo career and performing with Clapton on the 1991 Japanese tour.

    As previously reported, Harrison will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist March 15 in New York. In November, Warner Strategic Marketing issued a CD/DVD of "Concert for George," a November 2002 tribute show in London that featured McCartney, Starr, Clapton and Tom Petty, among others.
