I Want To Tell You (Harrison)

I Want To Tell You was an attempt by George to clear his mind of the frustration of not knowing what to say or how to say it. He would later use LSD and, even later, meditation to clear his mind like the song attempts to do.

Unique working titles

I Want To Tell You was recorded under the working titles Laxton’s Superb and I Don’t Know (the latter in response to engineer Geoff Emerick’s question as to the title of the song).
