George Harrison

All Things Must Pass (Limited Edition 3 LP Box)

George Harrison could only be kept quiet for so long. By the end of the Beatles’ run, the unassuming lead guitarist had blossomed into a songwriting force of nature, contributing some of the best compositions to latter-day Beatles LPs, including “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”, “Something”, and “Here Comes the Sun”. He was also incredibly prolific, stockpiling upwards of 30 songs by the time the Beatles called it a day in 1970.

Instead of releasing this high-quality material gradually, George decided to go all out, resulting in the world’s first-ever triple album, his magnificent 1970 solo debut, All Things Must Pass. Easily one of the best Beatles solo albums (if not the best), All Things Must Pass is now reissued for Record Store Day’s “Black Friday” sale (November 26). Co-produced by Harrison and Phil Spector, the album features perhaps the most grandiose application of Spector’s “wall-of-sound”. The deluxe, three LP reissue features faithfully replicated album art and packaging and features some of Harrison’s greatest songs, including “What is Life” and the number-one smash “My Sweet Lord”.
