"Not Guilty" is a song written by George Harrison. It is featured on his 1979 album titled George Harrison and on the Beatles' Anthology 3 album. While Harrison's solo version is mellower and features acoustic guitar and electric piano, The Beatles' original version is harsher, driven by distorted electric guitar and harpsichord.


An acoustic demo of the song was recorded during May 1968 at Harrison's Esher home. This version has never been officially released, but is available on numerous bootlegs. Although the Beatles worked on the song for at least three days in 1968 during the White Album sessions, that version was not officially released until 1996 on Anthology 3, using "take 102" as edited and remixed by Geoff Emerick in 1984 for the aborted Sessions album.
