About this deal

In March 1970, Harrison and Clapton participated in the recording of "I'm Your Spiritual Breadman" by Ashton's new band, Ashton, Gardner and Dyke.

From within Apple's stable of musicians, Harrison recruited the band Badfinger, future Yes drummer Alan White, and Beatles assistant Mal Evans on percussion. This is the 50th anniversary remixed 5 album version which believe it or not, I haven't got round to playing yet! nb 25] At the 1972 Grammy Awards, All Things Must Pass was nominated for Album of the Year and "My Sweet Lord" for Record of the Year, but Harrison lost out in both categories to Carole King. Looking at other reviews it would appear I got lucky with this one, with all records clean and scratch/mark free with 4 out of 5 being flat, with only a very slight dish warp on disk 2 that in no way effects playback.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. All Things Must Pass was remastered again for the eight-disc Harrison box set The Apple Years 1968–75, [350] issued in September 2014.

Harrison and Scott were shocked at the amount of reverb they had used in 1970 [323] and were keen to remix the album, but EMI vetoed the idea. The latter was another song influenced by Harrison's association with the Radha Krishna Temple, [76] and was written while some of the devotees were staying with him at Friar Park. In Canada the album hit number 1 on just its 3rd week, was number 1 for 9 weeks, and was on the charts for 31 weeks, ending July 17, 1971. If you love the work of George or want to learn more about him then this album should be in your collection, in fact this album should be in every record collection, a definite 500 out of 5.Writing for Rolling Stone in 2002, Greg Kot described this grandeur as an "echo-laden cathedral of rock in excelsis" where the "real stars" are Harrison's songs; [54] in the same publication, Mikal Gilmore labelled the album "the finest solo work any ex-Beatle ever produced". The original was produced by Phil Spectre and whilst I loved the songs so many were just over the top in terms of the sound was saturated with reverb and echo and lots of the individual instruments were lost somewhere in the mix, quite frankly it wasn't really easy to listen to. In 2022, the 50th anniversary box set won the Grammy Award for Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package.

Among Spector's comments were detailed suggestions regarding "Let It Down", [62] the released recording of which Madinger and Easter describe as "the best example of Spector running rampant with the 'Wall of Sound '", and an urging that he and Harrison carry out further work on the songs at Trident because of its 16-track recording desk. nb 18] The track featured Harrison on vocals, harmonium and all other instruments, and vocal contributions from Mal Evans and assistant engineer Eddie Klein.Now there is so much depth and nuance to the music and vocals, its as if George is singing just for me it is truly fabulous. After Boyd rejected him in November 1970, Clapton descended into full-blown heroin addiction, [206] which led to the break-up of the band in early 1971 and the sidelining of his career until 1974.
