All songs written by George Harrison except "Bye Bye Love" (Felice & Boudleaux Bryant) and "Far East Man" (Harrison/Ron Wood).

George Harrison's only North American tour was in support of this album, which included the singles "Dark Horse" and "Ding Dong; Ding Dong." Critics, who may have been scared off by an opening track called "Hari's On Tour (Express)," were not amused. No doubt they were hoping to hear George, not Hari, on tour. But the album has its pleasures, such as the prodigious pop hook of "Ding Dong; Ding Dong," which isn't nearly as silly a song as its title would have you believe, and nifty little album tracks like "Far East Man." Soap-opera fans are directed to "Bye Bye Love," which is about his wife, Patti, and his best friend, Eric Clapton. Clapton, for those keeping score, had previously expressed his love for Patti on "Layla." Later, he would marry her.
