Extra Texture (Read All About It) is the sixth studio album by English musician George Harrison, released in September 1975. It was Harrison's final album under his contract with Apple Records and EMI, and the last studio album issued by Apple. The release came nine months after his troubled 1974 North American tour with Ravi Shankar and the poorly received Dark Horse album. The melancholic mood of the recording reflects Harrison's depressed state at the harsh criticism generated by these projects. Among his solo releases, Extra Texture is notable as the only album whose lyrics are devoid of any obvious spiritual message. Uniquely also, it was recorded mostly in America rather than England, while Harrison was working in Los Angeles in his role as head of Dark Horse Records.

    Despite its generally downcast mood and an unfavourable response from music critics, Extra Texture was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America within two months of release. It produced a hit single in the Motown-inspired "You", originally recorded in London in 1971 with co-producer Phil Spector. The album also includes "This Guitar (Can't Keep from Crying)", which was both a sequel to Harrison's 1968 Beatles composition "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and a rebuttal to his detractors.

  • We use the Goldmine Grading Guide which is considered to be the standard for record collectors worldwide:
    Mint | M Perfect in every way.
    NM or M- | Near Mint | Perfect in most ways.
    VG + | Very Good Plus | Amazing condition for age. Slightly used. Looked after. Very light scuffs and insignificant scratches. Cover, inners and labels have light wear.
    VG | Very Good | Excellent condition for age. Used often. Looked after. More scruffs and insignificant scratches. Cover, inners and labels have wear to be expected by age. Audio still amazing!
    G + | Good Plus | Good condition for age. Has some minor scratches and scuffs but plays well. More surface noise. Audio sounding a bit more vintage but still awsome!
    G | Good | Average condition for age. Scratched and scuffed. Significant surface noise. Still plays well. Audio slightly affected.
