The new box features an exclusive DVD with several video pieces, including a new seven-minute film with previously unreleased footage.

How awesome is this?!? Check out the trailer above!
I am so happy that what we started a decade ago by releasing The Dark Horse Years is now complete with the release of his first six albums as The Apple Years. Some of these records have long been out of print, and so I cannot wait for music lovers to get their hands on these newly remastered versions. It’s a very proud moment for us, and I would like to thank everyone who has helped us in any way to achieve this. -Dhani Harrison
Roman Remains released a video for their track, “Gazebo“. The band is comprised of Liela Moss and Toby Butler from The Duke Spirit. The song is off of their new full-length album, Zeal, which is available now on Dhani Harrison’s H.O.T. Records Ltd. They just completed a month-long residency at LA’s Sayers Club and they were awesome!!! Keep your eyes (and ears) on this duo, it’s likely we’ll be seeing a lot of them.

The Beatles made their US debut on the Ed Sullivan show 50 years ago this February 9th, the same day this special will air. That appearance has become one of the most iconic in music history. Many have tried to replicate it, but it is impossible. Being a HUGE Beatles fan, this was one concert I was dying to see. Paul AND Ringo, TOGETHER—and not like the Grammys. Instead, they would be performing classic Beatles hits. Can we say, EPIC? Continue Reading
Thenewno2 is coming onto the US music scene quite strong as of late. They formed in 2006, but didn’t go on their first US tour until 2009. The band is g-r-e-a-t and not just because of Dhani Harrison, but I guess that too. The band as a collective whole create a smooth rock sound that has this endearing haunting quality to it (listen to “Another John Doe“).
It’s no wonder why they were chosen to do the entire Beautiful Creatures soundtrack. They recently released their new single, “Never Too Late” which is off the soundtrack for the new teen-sci-fi-romance flick (almost another Twilight, but not really) and it just doesn’t get old. Have a listen above and get hooked.
