In response to rumours that the Beatles were due to reunite, Gabree said that, on the strength of the Harrison and Lennon solo albums, "I, for one, don't care if they ever do. In celebration of the 50th Anniversary, George Harrison’s, All Things Must Pass is being 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. Handling much of the keyboard work with Whitlock was Gary Wright, [120] who went on to collaborate regularly with Harrison throughout the 1970s. Colin Hanks titled his 2015 film All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records after the album and, with the blessing of Harrison's widow, Olivia Harrison, used the title track over the end credits.

This is a view held by biographers Leng [44] and Joshua Greene [45] also, as well as by music critics John Harris, [5] David Fricke [43] and Richie Unterberger. In music journalist David Cavanagh's description, once abandoned by his co-producer midway through the summer, Harrison had "proceeded to out-Spector Spector" through the addition of further echo and multiple overdubs.

What Is Life", versions one and two of "Isn't It a Pity", and the songs on which Drake participated, such as "All Things Must Pass" and "Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp", were among the other tracks taped then. Writing in The Beatles Forever in 1977, however, Nicholas Schaffner praised the album as the "crowning glory" of Harrison's and Spector's careers, and highlighted "All Things Must Pass" and "Beware of Darkness" as the "two most eloquent songs . I used to think of Wah, Wah as just a mess of noise and while I would like it tighter still, it is actually quite enjoyable to listen to on this version. Q magazine considers the album to be an exemplary fusion of "rock and religion", as well as "the single most satisfying collection of any solo Beatle". Harrison's approach to slide guitar incorporated aspects of both Indian music and the blues tradition; [53] he developed a precise playing style and sound that partly evoked the fretless Indian sarod.

Clapton's feelings for Boyd inspired many of his songs on Derek and the Dominos' only studio album, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs (1970). A further complication, according to Harris, was that Clapton had become infatuated with Harrison's wife, Pattie Boyd, and adopted a heroin habit as a means of coping with his guilt. nb 29] Nigel Williamson of Uncut said that the album includes some of Harrison's best songs in "My Sweet Lord", "All Things Must Pass" and "Beware of Darkness", and stands as "George's finest . Gerson also lauded the album's production as being "of classic Spectorian proportions, Wagnerian, Brucknerian, the music of mountain tops and vast horizons". one of the outstanding rock albums in years", while Tom Zito of The Washington Post predicted that it would influence the discourse on "the [real] genius behind the Beatles".But what he left us was a crisp, clear sounding copy of the album with five additional tracks including a re-working of "My Sweet Lord" with some stunning vocals by Sam Brown. Consider that through entire Beatles catalog he's only credited with 22 songs, and what a surprise, very next year after breakup - individual tripple lp ! To mark the 30th anniversary of the album's release, Harrison supervised a remastered edition of All Things Must Pass, which was issued in January 2001, less than a year before his death from cancer at the age of 58. According to Scott, he and Harrison worked alone for "weeks and months" on the overdubs, as Harrison recorded the backing vocals and lead guitar parts. The most extensive editions contain 70 tracks across 5 CDs/8LPs, including outtakes, jams and 47 demos, 42 of which are previously unreleased, [358] and a scrapbook containing archival notes and track-by-track annotation curated by Olivia Harrison.

The new treatment feels more airy and open with George's guitar and vocal sitting slightly more on top of the mix resulting in this being a more emotional feeling representation of the songs within. The widespread success of "My Sweet Lord" worked against Harrison when a near-bankrupt music publisher, Bright Tunes, pursued an ultimately successful claim of plagiarism against him in the US district court, for unauthorised copyright infringement of the 1963 song " He's So Fine".The collection contains a beautiful 56-page scrapbook curated by Olivia Harrison, with unseen imagery and memorabilia from the era, handwritten lyrics, diary entries, studio notes, tape box images, a comprehensive track-by-track and more. The Super Deluxe Edition CD collects 70 tracks across 5 CDs including 47 (42 previously unreleased) demo recordings, session outtakes and studio jams all housed in a beautiful slipcase. With Harrison undertaking extensive promotional work, the 2001 reissue was a critical and commercial success.

The majority of the album's backing tracks were taped on 8-track at EMI between late May and the second week of June. Production began at London's EMI Studios in May 1970, with extensive overdubbing and mixing continuing through October.My Sweet Lord" was highly successful, [242] topping singles charts around the world during the first few months of 1971. According to Harrison's recollection in a 1977 interview for Crawdaddy magazine, [200] Lennon first saw the artwork at Friar Park and remarked to a mutual friend of theirs that Harrison "must be fucking mad" to be releasing a triple album, and described him as "look[ing] like an asthmatic Leon Russell" on the cover.
