All Things Must Pass was George Harrison's first release following the acrimonious falling apart of the Beatles. Co-produced by the unhinged genius that was Phil Spector, it features his biggest solo hit in the "He's So Fine"-soundalike, "My Sweet Lord". Alongside a laid-back strum through Bob Dylan's "If Not For You", this remastered two-CD set also has the gentle "Isn't It A Pity" and "What is Life"--songs that show a writer enjoying true creative freedom for the first time and exploring his growing devotion to Krishna, outside of Lennon and McCartney's shadow. Ably supported by celebrity mates like Eric Clapton and the redoubtable Ringo Starr, All Things Must Pass is the sound of Harrison breathing out for the first time in 10 years. Moreover, it's conclusive proof that the Beatles were blessed with not just two, but three truly great songwriters. --Billie Swift --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Cet album manquait a ma collection de Beatles..
Tres bon achat...Georges toujours fidele a lui-meme et a sa recherche de spiritualite..
Contente de mon achat..
Like most Harrison fans I regard "ATMP" as George finest album. Many of his greatest songs come from this LP. Though there is a great variety of styles and moods on the album, particularly the ballads stand out. Songs like "Isn't It a Pity", "Run of the Mill", "Behind That Locked Door", "Beware of Darkness" and "I'd Have You Anytime" are simply moving. His version of Dylan's "If Not For You" beats Dylan's own version by miles. Among the other up-beat number I especially like "What is Life". The bonus-track "I Live For You" is gem; incredible that this song was not originally included.
A lot of the acoustic guitars are played by Badfinger's Pete Ham and Tom Evans, who were two young very talented song-writers themselves and who had already witten the classic "Without You" at this time. For Pete Ham, who wrote Badfinger' greatest hit-records, Harrison may have been the biggest inspiration among the Beatles. There are many similarities among these two great musicians' songwriting and musical arrangements. Try listen to Badfinger's "Straight Up" album, which was partly produced by George.
This 2 CD set is must have for any Beatles or Badfinger fan!
Be aware that this album has been remixed. It is de-Spectorized, which some fans will quite like. Note that a lot of compression has been used, and the balance of instruments and voice is often changed. It is a giant sonic improvement over the murky, muddy, flat original EMI cd release. And George was involved in the production.
However, if you really want to still hear this classic album as it was originally intended to sound and feel, either stick with the original vinyl, or track yourself down a copy of Dr.Ebbet's faithful needle-drop release -they are a lot more natural and breathtaking. It's quite a different experience altogether. Ideally, to really enjoy this album one would want this remix and the original vinyl versions. Both can be highly enjoyable, in their own way.
A minor quip perhaps, but I wish they'd also officially re-release the original 45 single version of "My Sweet Lord". Many listeners may not be aware but it was quite a different mix. Too bad it wasn't included here!
Overall,I found the the bonus tracks here of minor interest. Contemporary fans might appreciate the 2000 remix of My Sweet Lord. The outtakes are pretty meager compared to what has surfaced on the bootleg market. Where's the offical Harrsion Anthology to go along with those released by the Beatles and Lennon? It's long overdue!
The Apple Jam tracks are included, minor fluff but a fun listen.Read more ›
