Somewhere In England is the ninth studio album by English musician George Harrison, originally released in June 1981 via Dark Horse Records.

Somewhere In England has a strange and tumultuous history behind it.  As a follow up to his successful George Harrison album, it was set for release in 1980 when at the last moment Warner Brothers pulled the album (even after it was advertised) and wanted the cover picture changed and four songs dropped. 

Harrison returned to the studio and worked on four new songs to replace the ones pulled, including “Blood From A Clone”, protesting the record company’s action.  “All Those Years Ago” originally meant for Ringo Starr but rewritten as a remembrance for John Lennon, as well as “Teardrops” and “That Which I Have Lost”.

The bouncy "All Those Years Ago" is a definite gain, being the most heartfelt song on the record as well as a de facto Beatles reunion (Starr plays drums and Paul and Linda McCartney overdubbed backing vocals), and it was justly rewarded with a number two showing on the singles charts.

This release is the official version but with the original artwork restored.

The album peaked at #11 on the US Billboard 200, #13 on the UK and #17 on the Australian Albums charts.

Check out the tracks: “All Those Years Ago” and “Teardrops”.

This LP record is reissued (February 2017) on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl featuring remastered audio with reproduced original album artwork, pressed in Europe.
