About this deal

Also available as a separate, double-CD release, the reissue reproduces Harrison's 2001 liner notes [352] and includes the same five bonus tracks that appeared on the 30th anniversary edition. Several commentators interpret Barry Feinstein's album cover photo, showing Harrison surrounded by four garden gnomes, as a statement on his independence from the Beatles. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Recorded and released in 1970, the album was Harrison's first solo work since the break-up of The Beatles in April that year. All Things Must Pass was awarded a gold disc by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on 17 December 1970 [268] and it has since been certified seven times platinum by the RIAA.

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. 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. All Things Must Pass has also appeared in the following critics' best-album books and lists, among others: the Paul Gambaccini-compiled Critic's Choice: Top 200 Albums (1978; ranked number 79), [ citation needed] The Times ' "100 Best Albums of All Time" (1993; number 79), [ citation needed] Allan Kozinn's The 100 Greatest Pop Albums of the Century (published in 2000), [ citation needed] Q 's "The 50 (+50) Best British Albums Ever" (2004), [ citation needed] Mojo 's "70 of the Greatest Albums of the 70s" (2006), [ citation needed] the NME 's "100 Greatest British Albums Ever" (2006; number 86), [ citation needed] Paste magazine's "The 70 Best Albums of the 1970s" (2012; number 27), [ citation needed] and Craig Mathieson and Toby Creswell's The 100 Best Albums of All Time (2013). Reflecting the widespread surprise at the assuredness of Harrison's post-Beatles debut, Melody Maker 's Richard Williams likened the album to Greta Garbo's first role in a talking picture and declared: "Garbo talks! Unsubstantiated claims exist regarding guest appearances by John Lennon, [152] Maurice Gibb [153] and Pink Floyd's Richard Wright.That same month, as part of its Archive on 4 series, BBC Radio 4 broadcast "All Things Must Pass at 50", a one-hour special presented by Nitin Sawhney. Good grief I'm typing this as I listen and there are instruments coming through that were only hinted at in the Spectre mix but here they are front and centre, also left and right 🤣, haha what an absolute delight. The original vinyl release consisted of two LPs of songs and a third disc of informal jams titled Apple Jam. The six songs are: "Window, Window", another song turned down by the Beatles in January 1969; [105] "Everybody, Nobody", the melody of which Harrison adapted for "Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp"; [103] "Nowhere to Go", a second Harrison–Dylan collaboration from November 1968 (originally known as "When Everybody Comes to Town"); [106] and "Cosmic Empire", "Mother Divine" and "Tell Me What Has Happened to You". Barham stayed at Friar Park and created the music scores from melodies that Harrison sang or played to him on piano or guitar.

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.Music historian Richie Unterberger comments that, typical of the Beatles' solo work, the precise dates for the recording of All Things Must Pass are uncertain, a situation that contrasts with the "meticulous documentation" available for the band's studio activities. Commentators interpret the photograph – showing Harrison seated in the centre of, and towering over, four comical-looking garden gnomes – as representing his removal from the Beatles' collective identity.

Songs such as "Wah-Wah", "Apple Scruffs", "Isn't It a Pity" and "Run of the Mill" resonated with listeners as documents of the group's dysfunction. An "intangible buzz" had been "in the air for months" regarding Harrison's solo album, according to Alan Clayson, and "for reasons other than still-potent loyalty to the Fab Four". There is a surprising Clarity to the original recordings and there seems to be a "richer" overall sound quality.The title for "I Remember Jeep" originated from the name of Clapton's dog, Jeep, [91] and "Thanks for the Pepperoni" came from a line on a Lenny Bruce comedy album. During the final year of his life, Harrison oversaw a successful reissue campaign to mark the 30th anniversary of the album's release.
