About this deal

Harrison later referred to Spector needing "eighteen cherry brandies" before he could start work, a situation that forced much of the production duties onto Harrison alone. a very moving work", [46] and Roger Catlin of MusicHound describes the set as "epic and audacious", its "dense production and rich songs topped off by the extra album of jamming".

Mick Brown, writing in The Daily Telegraph, also considers it the best of all the Beatles' solo albums.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. With the legendary Phil Spector co-producing and employing the talents of George's superstar friends such as: Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Badfinger, Gary Brooker, long standing Beatles friend Klaus Voorman and sax player for the stones Bobby Keys, George set about recording what would be his most successful album of his solo career, and his biggest hit single "My Sweet Lord". 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. Gerson also lauded the album's production as being "of classic Spectorian proportions, Wagnerian, Brucknerian, the music of mountain tops and vast horizons".

The 50th anniversary release also peaked at number 2 in Germany and number 3 in Switzerland, among other top-ten international chart placings. 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). 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".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!

The 50th Anniversary Box 5 LP Box set includes an additional 2 LPS of other song versions and outtakes. The Super Deluxe Edition LP collects 70 tracks across 8 LPs (180 Gram) including 47 (42 previously unreleased) demo recordings, session outtakes and studio jams all housed in a beautiful slipcase.The collection contains a beautiful 56-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. Apple issued "My Sweet Lord" as the album's first single, as a double A-side with "Isn't It a Pity" in the majority of countries. On 9 October, while carrying out final mixing at EMI, Harrison presented Lennon with the recently recorded "It's Johnny's Birthday".

Previewing the LP in the Detroit Free Press, Mike Gormley said that Apple Jam constituted "some exceptional hard rock and roll". He also wrote more songs, [9] renewing his interest in the guitar after three years studying the Indian sitar. 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 another review, for The Times, Williams opined that, of all the Beatles' solo releases thus far, Harrison's album "makes far and away the best listening, perhaps because it is the one which most nearly continues the tradition they began eight years ago".The reissue coincided with the Harrison estate's similarly low-key [346] release of the Ravi Shankar–George Harrison box set Collaborations [347] and East Meets West Music's reissue of Raga, the long-unavailable documentary on Shankar that Harrison had helped release through Apple Films in 1971. 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.
