Scan - Olivia and George Harrison
"[On Thirty-Three & 1/3 was a man] so much in love with his future wife Olivia Arias that even the wide-open admiration of ‘Beautiful Girl’ was not testimony enough. He covered Cole Porter’s song, ‘True Love.’” - “George Harrison Dark Horse” by David Fricke
"A slight, dark woman with a sculptured, almost Aztec face, she smiles often. The couple met while Olivia worked at Dark Horse. After more than two years, they are an informal familiar pair. Olivia reaches into her shopping bag, pulling out boxes of new shoes for George’s media tour. The first contains a pair of Italianesque loafers. Harrison tries them, a little shy, a little shaken by their sleekness. ‘They’ll look great with your new suit,’ Olivia says. She quickly offers another pair; brown suede with white stitching. Mimicking a clerk, she grabs George by the ankle: ‘They’re really you, sir.’ Harrison calls for a shoehorn. He tries them on and asks around for approval. Everybody oohs and ahhhs. ‘I’ll take a dozen, squire,’ he bellows.” - Crawdaddy, February 1977
"A friend observed, ‘There was a serene and calming presence that George and Olivia gave off. George had fresh flowers placed in the house and there was incense burning, pictures of holy men, the smell of curried rice dishes - long-grain rice - wafting in from the kitchen. They’re both health-food eaters.
‘You know something is going on when they’re around but it isn’t something George shoves down your throat. They are both very thoughtful, and she has a great sense of humour. She is a lovely woman, far from the Hollywood-model type, far too spiritual. The harmony between them is clear and apparent to anyone around them.’” - “A friend” on George and Olivia, The George Harrison Encyclopedia
"I am still having a relationship with him, but it is just not a physical relationship any more. And the sooner one comes to terms with that, the easier it is, rather than feeling George has gone and he is never coming back." Does she communicate with him? "I don’t really want to get into all that. That’s a dodgy question to answer because people might think… I don’t know if you have ever had anybody go who you have loved? Well, you do feel in communication with them because you feel so deeply in your heart that if you say a prayer, it goes straight to them." - Olivia Harrison
