Isn't It a Pity" was another song passed over during these sessions, [56] having similarly been turned down, by Lennon, [57] for inclusion on the Beatles' Revolver album (1966). I found myself appreciating the original album’s mix significantly more than the clinical, somewhat flat 2021 remix. Released as a triple album in November 1970, it was Harrison's first solo work after the break-up of the Beatles in April that year. Although Harrison had estimated in a New York radio interview that the solo album would take no more than eight weeks to complete, [197] [198] recording, overdubbing and mixing on All Things Must Pass lasted for five months, until late October.

Another Rolling Stone critic, James Hunter, commented in 2001 on how All Things Must Pass "helped define the decade it ushered in", in that "the cast, the length, the long hair falling on suede-covered shoulders . Like all the "free" tracks on the bonus disc, [96] "It's Johnny's Birthday" carried a Harrison songwriting credit on the original UK release of All Things Must Pass, [97] while on the first US copies, the only songwriting information on the record's face labels was the standard inclusion of a performing rights organisation, BMI. In January 2014, All Things Must Pass was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, [317] an award bestowed by the Recording Academy "to honor recordings of lasting qualitative or historical significance that are at least 25 years old".George Harrison confronted the breakup head-on, with the graceful, philosophical All Things Must Pass. Titled All Things Must Pass: 30th Anniversary Edition, the new album contained five bonus tracks, including "I Live for You", [330] two of the songs performed for Spector at EMI Studios in May 1970 (" Beware of Darkness" and " Let It Down") and " My Sweet Lord (2000)", a partial re-recording of Harrison's biggest solo hit.

Sadly this was to be the last album that he would issue as George passed away later that year, in fact 14 years ago today. That was the great thing about [the Beatles] splitting up: to be able to go off and make my own record .

Village Voice critic Robert Christgau, having bemoaned in 1971 that it was characterised by "overblown fatuity" and uninteresting music, [295] wrote in Christgau's Record Guide: Rock Albums of the Seventies (1981) of the album's "featurelessness", "right down to the anonymity of the multitracked vocals". Soon after the tour, Harrison gave "My Sweet Lord" and "All Things Must Pass" to Preston, [69] who released the songs on his Encouraging Words album in September 1970, two months before Harrison's versions appeared. Language - Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description. The original mix of Wah Wah was so intense it was actually painful to listen to but this mix is full of depth detail and warmth even at neighbour annoying volume!

Spector also made suggestions about overdubbing more instruments and orchestration on some tracks, but encouraged Harrison to focus on his vocals and avoid hiding his voice behind the instrumentation. Barham commented that Spector was aloof and distant with the musicians, and his authoritarian tendencies contrasted sharply with Harrison's preference for letting the players find themselves in each song. 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. 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.

Previewing the LP in the Detroit Free Press, Mike Gormley said that Apple Jam constituted "some exceptional hard rock and roll". 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. After this reissue, the Recording Industry Association of America certified the album six-times platinum. During the final year of his life, Harrison oversaw a successful reissue campaign to mark the 30th anniversary of the album's release.Harrison also contributed on guitar to both sides of the band's debut single, " Tell the Truth" [185] and "Roll It Over", [186] which were produced by Spector and recorded at Apple on 18 June. A series of elegies, dream sequences, and thoughts on the limits of idealism, it is arguably the most fully realized solo statement from any of the Beatles. For the 40th anniversary of All Things Must Pass, EMI reissued the album in its original configuration, in a limited-edition box set of three vinyl LPs, on 26 November 2010. The stark black-and-white cover photo was taken on the main lawn at Friar Park [73] by Wilkes' Camouflage Productions partner, Barry Feinstein. Badfinger participated in five sessions until early June, [131] when they left for an engagement in Hawaii.
