I had three in mind for my pick, but since November 29th is the thirteenth anniversary of George Harrison's death, I thought I'd go with this one. Plus, we haven't really discussed this one on this particular incarnation of the forum,yet.
Your CD (or in this case, YouTube link) of the week is....George Harrison's 1987 album "Cloud Nine".

The Songs Cloud Nine That's What It Takes Fish on the Sand Just For Today This Is Love When we Was Fab Devil's Radio Someplace Else Wreck of the Hesperus Breath Away From Heaven Got My Mind Set On You
This is George's best album, and not just because of Jeff Lynne's involvement. His singing, playing and songwriting are on par with his Beatles period material, in my opinion. He must have been in a really good place in his life.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
