Scan - “A young George Harrison with his Tony Curtis haircut, bright fluorescent green wasitcoat (under the towel), and skintight jeans. He’s carrying flippers, so he must be off to the swimming pool or the sea. This would be around 1958 or ‘59, when George, Paul, and John were in the Quarrymen skiffle group. I though I’d taken this photograph, but Paul rang up to complain, ‘Hey you bugger lugs! I took that one!’” - Mike McCartney

George Harrison - “Beautiful Girl” (demo) - Beware of ABKCO

"I started Beautiful Girl in 1969 - I’d been working on a Doris Troy record and Stephen Stills had a very good twelve-string guitar which he loaned me for the evening. I wrote the tune then on that guitar but I couldn’t get past the verse verse with the lyrics, and so the song sank back into the distance, but I remembered it during 1976 and finished the lyrics. I related it then to Olivia.” - George Harrison, I Me Mine

Beautiful Girl

Never seen such a beautiful girl
Got me shaking inside
Calling on me from deep within her eyes
Not the kind you go handing around
Want to keep her right there
But this love it don’t come as no surprise

And when I saw the way that she smiled at me
I knew it there and then that she was A1
And when I felt the way she was touching me
Was something I had known I was waiting upon

Never seen such a beautiful girl
Had me quickly untied
Calling to me she made me realize
Not the kind that is lost or is found
She has always been there
A lover needed for this soul to survive

And when I saw the way that she smiled at me
I knew it there and then that she was A1
And when I felt the way she got through to me
Was something I had known I was waiting upon

Never seen such a beautiful girl
Got me shaking inside
Calling on me from deep within her eyes
Not the kind you go handing around
Want to keep her right there
But this love it don’t come as no surprise
