George Harrison - All Things Must Pass RIAA Certified Multi-Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Jerry McCulley

It's hard to imagine, but Beatles resident mystic George Harrison has arguably become the band's most curmudgeonly cynic. We offer as evidence this splendidly remastered 30th-anniversary edition of his 1970 multidisc solo epic. If the mini-boxed set's booklet and twin inner CD sleeves won't convince you (the album's familiar cover is colorized and altered to include backdrops of a freeway-tangled cityscape and nuclear reactor cooling towers, respectively), then maybe his liner-note apology for Phil Spector's "big production" (kind of like Da Vinci grousing about Mona's crooked smile) or his laconic, stripped-down, 2000 rethink of "My Sweet Lord" will. With such a mindset, it's unsurprising Harrison has allowed a nearly decade-and-a-half gap to grow between recordings. Still, no amount of grumpy auto-revisionism can subtract from the admittedly overwrought majesty of these tracks, which were the logical sonic extension of Abbey Road. It remains Harrison's unequaled masterpiece. The devolved "My Sweet Lord" aside, the bonus tracks here offer new insight: the unreleased "I Live for You" further highlights the album's oft overlooked country facet; spare takes of "Beware of Darkness" and "Let It Down" underscore the strength of Harrison's songwriting; an alternate backing track of "What Is Life" demonstrates the meticulousness of Spector's production. And then there's the project's truly stellar session lineup, which included Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Klaus Voorman, Jim Gordon, Dave Mason, Badfinger, Billy Preston, Ginger Baker, Carl Radle, Gary Brooker, Jim Price, Bobby Keys, Pete Drake and, it turns out, even Phil Collins!

"My husband owns the original album of this, which is a four-record set, and as an even bigger delight, this album contains an original poster which is approximately 3' long.

The day that George died, my husband, tears streaming down his face, brought out the album to show me..."I have had this since the day it was released," he told me, and indeed, one could tell that this album had been played over and over: two of the original sleeves are missing and all four edges are loose. He handled it, though, as if it were made of the sheerest of satins, and I doubt if he will ever play it again, because for my husband, TODAY was "the day the music died.""


"I was 9 when All Things Must Pass came out. My room was next to my older brother's room. I remember hearing Apple Scruffs and What is Life. Some great memories - I cut my teeth on this album. How many 9 yr olds can say that?"


"This album is very important for me, and the songs are amazing. This is one of the wonders of this times. One of the best records of all times. Thanks George four your music, rest in peace…"
