Cheapest I've seen this. This first-ever career-spanning solo hits collection contains 19 tracks that have been selected by Olivia Harrison and digitally remastered by Giles Martin at EMIs Abbey Road Studios.

Often overlooked as a musician in his own right as a Beatle; and wrongly so. Take for example 'All Things Must Pass'. It was the first triple album released by a solo artist; in regards to the album's size, Harrison stated "I didn't have many tunes on Beatles records, so doing an album like All Things Must Pass was like going to the bathroom and letting it out."

Did it sell?

You betcha it did. It put Maccas and Lennons first solo attempts firmly in the shade.

The album was also critically acclaimed and, with long stays at number 1 in both the US and the UK, it was a huge commercially successful. It was certified 6x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America in 2001.

Harrison had been accumulating the songs he recorded for the album as far back as 1966; both "The Art of Dying" and "Isn't It a Pity" date from that year. In bootlegged conversation from the Get Back sessions, Harrison revealed that John Lennon had rejected "Isn't It a Pity" three years before, and that he (Harrison) had considered offering the song to Frank Sinatra, who described "Something", "the greatest love song ever written"

Anyway; here's 19 of George's most famous recordings as a solo artist and includes live versions of some of his most popular Beatle recordings.
