Screen captures of George Harrison, interviewed for The Beatles Anthology 3 EPK on the grounds of Friar Park, circa August 1996.

This was also the interview in which George commented on liking “Polythene Pam” - “because of its Liverpoolness.” (You can watch this segment on YouTube, courtesy of Wahwah Harrisong, here.)

“I kept coming across the words ‘i,’ ‘me’ and 'mine’ in books about yoga and stuff. I mean, you know, about the meaning of life and the difference between the ego and the soul - you know, the real you and the, you know, the you that people mistake their identity to be, this bones and - bag of flesh and bones, and the ego. And that’s really it - 'i,’ 'me’ and 'mine’ is all ego orientation, but it is something which is used all the time. People, you know - 'no one’s frightened of saying it, everyone’s playing it, coming on strong all the time, all through your life i me mine.’” - George Harrison on the Harrisong “I Me Mine,” from the Anthology 3 EPK

Polythene Pam-The Beatles

Well you should see Polythene Pam
She’s so good-looking but she looks like a man
Well you should see her in drag dressed in her polythene bag
Yes you should see Polythene Pam
Yeah yeah yeah

Get a dose of her in jackboots and kilt
She’s killer-diller when she’s dressed to the hilt
She’s the kind of a girl that makes good use of the fill
Yes you could say she was attractively built
Yeah yeah yeah
