Background: Released in 1968 (and 1969 in Japan,) Wonderwall Music was the first solo album by George Harrison.
The all-instrumental album was the soundtrack to a film titled, Wonderall.
The album reached #49 on the U.S. charts, but did not chart in the UK.
The first Beatle solo album — as well as the first Apple album — was a minor eruption of the pent-up energies of George Harrison, who was busy composing this offbeat score to the film Wonderwall as Magical Mystery Tour raced up the charts. With the subcontinental influence now firmly in the driver’s seat, the score is mostly given over to the solemn, atmospheric drones of Indian music. Yet, as a whole, it’s a fascinating if musically slender mishmash of sounds from East and West, everything casually juxtaposed or superimposed without a care in the world. … As this and Harrison’s second experimental release, Electronic Sound, undoubtedly proved, pigeonholing this Beatle was a dangerous thing.
