Biography

This was a surprise! Back in 1970 with the break-up of The Beatles, all focus was naturally on the main songwriters/singers, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, to see what they would do next. However, it was George that hit the ground running with All Things Must Pass. That it turned out to be the very first triple album ever released was even more surprising to many, given how few tracks he had ever written for The Beatles. In reality of course, he had been writing seriously for years and had worked on some songs with Dylan and The Band in '68.

This was a surprise! Back in 1970 with the break-up of The Beatles, all focus was naturally on the main songwriters/singers, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, to see what they would do next. However, it was George that hit the ground running with All Things Must Pass. That it turned out to be the very first triple album ever released was even more surprising to many, given how few tracks he had ever written for The Beatles. In reality of course, he had been writing seriously for years and had worked on some songs with Dylan and The Band in '68.

By the time he was to record the songs he had been amassing over these years, he was able to round up a stellar band inclduing Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, members of Badfinger, Billy Preston, Bobby Whitlock, Gary Brooker (ex-Procul Harem) and Gary Wright as well as members of Delaney and Bonnies band with whom he had toured in 1969. The sessions were produced by Phil Spector, then renowned as the genius inventor of the "Wall of Sound".
On release it spent 7 weeks at No.1 in the USA and 8 weeks in the UK (although due to a postal strike at the time this was not officially recognised until 2006!!) and is one of the most successful of any solo Beatles albums.

George himself remastered the album in 2000, living long enough to see it released to great critical acclaim and commercial success in 2001. Featuring bonus tracks, reworked (and colourful) artwork etc the decision was taken at the time to delete the original version and this has not been in print since then.

Now, almost 40 years to the day since its' release, Olivia Harrison is releasing the ORIGINAL ALBUM in the ORIGINAL ARTWORK for a limited edition vinyl release.

The perfect celebration of a great artist and a truly great, groundbreaking album, this follows the massive chart success of 2009's "Let It Roll", which entered the UK chart at 3 in May of that year as well as the huge success of the seminal 2009 remasters of The Beatles studio albums.
