, released after his death in 2001.
The collection will also include two 12" picture discs of "When We Was Fab" and "Got My Mind Set On You." Each album will also be available individually along with a Ltd. Ed. version of Harrison's classic All Things Must Past
produced by Phil Spector and featuring Ringo Starr and Eric Clapton. Harrison's family will also release an updated edition of I Me Mine
