Recording of the second album, Ta Dah commenced in mid-May 2005; sneak previews of new songs were played at live shows, including "Everybody Wants the Same Thing", performed at the Live 8 concert, "Paul McCartney", "I Can't Decide", "Hybrid Man", "Forever Right Now" and "Hairbaby" (a title which refers to the phenomenon of tumours containing partially formed foetuses).
Recordings took place at Discoball, the band's studio. The band fulfilled one of its dreams: Elton John collaborated with them on I Don't Feel Like Dancin' (as pianist and co-writer). The song reached #1 in the UK on 10 September 2006.
Elton John also contributed to the "Intermission" of Ta-Dah.
The album was released on September 18, 2006 in the UK, and will follow on September 26, 2006 in the USA. According to Jake Shears, this album will be a combination of sixties-era psychedelia, glam rock and disco.

George Harrison - Best of Dark Horse 1976-1989 (1989)

Image Hosted by

"Best of Dark Horse 1976-1989" is George Harrison's second official compilation album and was released in 1989. It follows up on both his successful comeback album Cloud Nine in 1987 and the Harrison-led Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 the following year, also a big seller.

Specially for this release, Harrison recorded two new songs, "Poor Little Girl" and "Cockamamie Business", while also including his Lethal Weapon 2 soundtrack song "Cheer Down" for good measure.

A fine summation of his period thus far on his own Dark Horse Records label, ranging from 1976's Thirty Three & 1/3 to Cloud Nine and beyond, Best of Dark Horse 1976-1989 surprisingly failed to chart in the UK and only made #132 in the US.

Best of Dark Horse 1976-1989, originally distributed through Warner Brothers Records, went out of print some years after its release, without being reissued by EMI when it acquired Harrison's entire Dark Horse catalogue. With no definitive career-spanning Harrison yet available, 1976's The Best of George Harrison is currently the only Harrison retrospective on offer.

1. "Poor Little Girl" - 4:33
