Product Overview

George Harrison's solo masterpiece is finally remastered in all its intended glory. The quiet one of The Fab Four illustrates on this two-disc set of classic songs, rare outtakes (5 additional tracks) and a remake of "My Sweet Lord," that legendary music never fades away. Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Billy Preston, Badfinger, and more back-up George. Produced by George Harrison and Phil Spector.

Excerpt From Liner Notes:
It's been thirty years since All Things Must Pass was recorded.I still like the songs on the album and believe they can continue to outlive the style in which they were recorded. It was difficult to resist re-mixing every track.All these years later I would like to liberate some of the songs from the big production that seemed appropriate at the time, but now seem a bit over the top with the reverb in the wall of sound. Still, it was an important album for me and a timely vehicle for all the songs I'd been writing during the last period with The Beatles. I began recording just months after we had all finally decided to go our separate ways and I was looking forward to making the first solo album of 'songs' (as opposed to Wonderwall and Electronic Sound which were instrumental)...

Without a doubt, Harrison's first solo recording, originally issued as a triple album, is his best. Drawing on his backlog of unused compositions from the late Beatles era, George crafted material that managed the rare feat of conveying spiritual mysticism without sacrificing his gifts for melody and grand, sweeping arrangements. Enhanced by Phil Spector's lush orchestral production and Harrison's own superb slide guitar, nearly every song is excellent: "Awaiting on You All," "Beware of Darkness," the Dylan collaboration "I'd Have You Anytime," "Isn't It a Pity," and the hit singles "My Sweet Lord" and "What Is Life" are just a few of the highlights. A very moving work, with a very significant flaw: the jams that comprise the final third of the album are entirely dispensable, and have probably only been played once or twice by most of the listeners who own this record. Those same jams, however, played by Eric Clapton, Carl Radle, Bobby Whitlock, and Jim Gordon (all of whom had just come off of touring as part of Delaney & Bonnie's band), proved to be of immense musical importance, precipitating the formation of Derek & the Dominos. Thus, they weren't a total dead end, and may actually be much more to the liking of the latter band's fans. ~ Richie Unterberger & Bruce Eder
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (1/7/71, p.46) - "..an intensely personal statement and a grandiose gesture, a triumph...an album of striking honesty and force.."
Rolling Stone (10/12/00, p.94) - 4.5 stars out of 5 - "...An album that is simultaneously modest and bold...[it] has stood up well to the passing of time....a bracing air of creative liberation..."
Entertainment Weekly (1/26/01, p.103) - "...Brighter, remastered sonics....Harrison and Phil Spector's Wall of Krishna Sound is still majestically congested, and the songs are so strong that Harrison would never top them. Even the jams feel refreshing in their looseness..." - Rating: A-
Q (3/01, pp.122-3) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...Rock and religion have rarely, if ever, been so happily conjoined....it remains the single most satisfying collection of any solo Beatle, maybe sounding even fresher for being sidelined so long..."
Alternative Press (5/01, p.96) - "...His best and most accomplished work..."
Mojo (Publisher) (1/02, p.69) - Included in Mojo's "Best Reissues of 2001".
Mojo (Publisher) (3/01, pp.86-7) - "...This remains the best Beatles solo album....oozing both the goggle-eyed joy of creative emancipation and the sense of someone pushing himself to the limit..."
