George Harrison

The Martin Scorsese documentary that HBO aired earlier this month on George Harrison is very good, even though it misses any mention of Cloud Nine and Brainwashed.  In the Doc, the Traveling Wilburys first album (1988) is seen as Harrison's comeback from years of chart exile.  But in fact it was Cloud Nine (1987 and Produced with Jeff Lynne) that brought Harrison back artistically and creatively. Also, while they do mention some of his non-Beatle production work, nothing is ever said of the hits he wrote for Ringo or even Badfinger.
Also his last album, finished by his son and Lynne, Brainwashed (2003) never brought up.  But otherwise, if you're a Beatle fanatic or/are curious about Harrison as the so-called "quiet Beatle" you'll love it.
