Martin Scorsese's George Harrison: LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD, which premiered on HBO last October, makes its home video debut in North America. Universal Music Enterprises is pleased to announce that it will be releasing the film today, May 1, 2012, in three editions: 2-DVD set, Blu-ray, and a Deluxe Edition that will include the DVD, Blu-ray, special packaging and a 96-page book of photography to accompany the film, plus the exclusive 10-track CD EARLY TAKES Volume 1, featuring previously unreleased music from George Harrison.

EARLY TAKES Volume 1 will also be released independent of the Deluxe Edition in CD, digital and 180-gram vinyl formats. EARLY TAKES is a pivotal companion piece to this critically acclaimed documentary and features previously unreleased recordings from Harrison. Included are rare, early takes of "I'd Have You Anytime" and "Awaiting On You All," plus unheard demo versions of "Behind That Locked Door," "All Things Must Pass," "Run of the Mill" and "My Sweet Lord," all later featured on Harrison's 1970 chart-topping album All Things Must Pass. Other unreleased tracks include demos of "The Light That Has Lighted the World," "Let It Be Me," Bob Dylan's "Mama You've Been on My Mind," and an early take of "Woman Don't You Cry For Me."

The film, George Harrison: LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD, was produced by Scorsese (through his Sikelia Productions banner), Olivia Harrison (through her Grove Street Pictures banner) and Nigel Sinclair (through Exclusive's documentary label, Spitfire Pictures). Margaret Bodde served as the film's executive producer and the film was edited by David Tedeschi (who previously worked with Scorsese, Bodde and Sinclair on the Grammy® Award-winning NO DIRECTION HOME: Bob Dylan, and with Scorsese and Bodde on the Rolling Stones' concert film SHINE A LIGHT and the documentary PUBLIC SPEAKING). Earlier this year, the film was honored with the Critic's Choice Award for Best Documentary Feature and short-listed for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Award for Best Documentary Film.
