About this deal

The extent of Harrison's success surprised the music industry and largely overshadowed Lennon's concurrently released Plastic Ono Band album, which Spector also co-produced. Adding to this ecological message, during promotion for the reissue, Harrison jokingly suggested that the title for his next studio album, the long-awaited follow-up to Cloud Nine (1987), might be Your Planet Is Doomed – Volume One. I personally find this release to be more pleasing to listen to than the original mix/mastering which I found quite tiring to listen to even though this is one of my favourite albums. Voormann immediately "loved" the sound, [165] as did Clapton; Harrison later said: "I grew to like it. Despite having already made Wonderwall Music (1968), a mostly instrumental soundtrack album, and the experimental Electronic Sound (1969), [42] Harrison considered All Things Must Pass to be his first solo album.

The 50th Anniversary Box 5 LP Box set includes an additional 2 LPS of other song versions and outtakes.The presence of Harrison's friends from the Radha Krishna Temple caused disruption during the sessions, according to Gibbins and Whitlock. As well as embracing the Vaishnavist branch of Hinduism, Harrison produced two hit singles during 1969–70 by the UK-based devotees, credited as Radha Krishna Temple (London). Wilkes had designed a more adventurous poster, but according to Beatles author Bruce Spizer, Harrison was uncomfortable with the imagery.

Spread across 5 LPs, the first 3 LPs feature the main album followed by 2 LPs containing 17 tracks of demo recordings, session outtakes and studio jams. In celebration of the 50th Anniversary, George Harrison’s, All Things Must Pass, is celebrated with a suite of new releases highlighted by a stunning new mix of the classic album by Grammy Award-winning mixer/engineer Paul Hicks, overseen by executive producer Dhani Harrison. a b c Ben Gerson, "George Harrison All Things Must Pass" Archived 28 April 2013 at the Wayback Machine, Rolling Stone, 21 January 1971, p.Harrison first discussed the possibility of making a solo album of his unused songs during the ill-tempered Get Back sessions, held at Twickenham Film Studios in January 1969. Martin O'Gorman, "Film on Four", Mojo Special Limited Edition: 1000 Days of Revolution (The Beatl nb 22] Issued in February 1971, the second single, "What Is Life" backed with "Apple Scruffs", [254] also became an international hit. With the legendary Phil Spector co-producing and employing the talents of George's superstar friends such as: Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Badfinger, Gary Brooker, long standing Beatles friend Klaus Voorman and sax player for the stones Bobby Keys, George set about recording what would be his most successful album of his solo career, and his biggest hit single "My Sweet Lord".

During the playback, Harrison was shocked at the amount of echo Spector had added, since the performance had sounded relatively dry through the musicians' headphones. The majority of the album's backing tracks were taped on 8-track at EMI between late May and the second week of June. Due to the album's big sound and the many participants on the sessions, commentators have traditionally referred to the grand, orchestral nature of this line-up.

All Things Must Pass received almost universal critical acclaim on release [275] – as much for the music and lyrical content as for the fact that, of all the former Beatles, it was the work of supposed junior partner George Harrison. Harrison wrote " Apple Scruffs", which was one of a number of Dylan-influenced songs on the album, [79] towards the end of production on All Things Must Pass, as a tribute to the diehard fans who had kept a vigil outside the studios where he was working.
