About this deal

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. In Britain, Gnome/EMI released the remastered album on vinyl also, the packaging for which contained four stages in this pictorial series compared with the three available in the CD box. I waited to purchase a copy until I had seen some reviews and they all say that it is a lot better with clearly defined instruments and separation so fingers crossed. It peaked at number 6 in the UK and number 7 on the Billboard 200 in the US; in other Billboard charts, it topped the listings for Top Rock Albums, Catalog Albums and Tastemaker Albums, and placed at number 2 on Top Albums Sales.

The 3LP’s (180g) are contained in a slim box, including a poster and an 8-page insert with photos and notes from Dhani Harrison and Paul Hicks on remixing the album. The collection contains a beautiful 60-page scrapbook curated by Olivia Harrison, with unseen imagery and memorabilia from the era, handwritten lyrics, diary entries, studio notes, tape box images, a comprehensive track-by-track and more. nb 21] Some of the Feinstein photographs that Wilkes had incorporated into this original poster design appeared instead on the picture sleeves for the "My Sweet Lord" single and its follow-up, "What Is Life". In Leng's book, Voormann states it was him playing lead guitar with Harrison on "Out of the Blue" and not Clapton, as credited by Harrison on the Apple Jam sleeve: "[George] thought it was Eric, because I was playing a little thing like Eric. X LP - Triple 180 Gram vinyl contained in a slim box, including a poster and an 8-page insert with photos and notes from Dhani Harrison and Paul Hicks on remixing the album.Jim Irvin considers it to be "a sharper clutch of songs than Imagine, more individual than Band on the Run" and concludes, "It's hard to think of many bigger-hearted, more human and more welcoming records than this. Other songs on All Things Must Pass, all written during the first half of 1970, include " Awaiting on You All", which reflected Harrison's adoption of chanting through his involvement with the Hare Krishna movement; [72] [73] " Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)", a tribute to the original owner of Friar Park; [74] and " Beware of Darkness".

On 1 May 1970, shortly before beginning work on All Things Must Pass, Harrison attended a Dylan session in New York, [78] during which he acquired a new song of Dylan's, " If Not for You".Ben Gerson of Rolling Stone deemed All Things Must Pass "both an intensely personal statement and a grandiose gesture, a triumph over artistic modesty" [2] and referenced the three-record set as an "extravaganza of piety and sacrifice and joy, whose sheer magnitude and ambition may dub it the War and Peace of rock 'n' roll". Allan Steckler, Apple Records' US manager, was "stunned" by the quality of the material and assured Harrison that he should issue all the songs. Among Harrison's biographers, Simon Leng views All Things Must Pass as a "paradox of an album": as eager as Harrison was to break free from his identity as a Beatle, Leng suggests, many of the songs document the " Kafkaesque chain of events" of life within the band and so added to the "mythologized history" he was looking to escape. The original vinyl release featured two LPs of rock songs as well as Apple Jam, a third disc of informal jams.

In his PopMatters review, John Bergstrom likens All Things Must Pass to "the sound of Harrison exhaling", adding: "He was quite possibly the only Beatle who was completely satisfied with the Beatles being gone.EMI had scheduled the release for 21 November 2000, close to the true date for the anniversary, but the album was delayed for two months. On 9 October, while carrying out final mixing at EMI, Harrison presented Lennon with the recently recorded "It's Johnny's Birthday". Barham stayed at Friar Park and created the music scores from melodies that Harrison sang or played to him on piano or guitar. In music journalist David Cavanagh's description, once abandoned by his co-producer midway through the summer, Harrison had "proceeded to out-Spector Spector" through the addition of further echo and multiple overdubs.
