5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Re-Issue, 29 Jan. 2001
This review is from: All Things Must Pass [VINYL] (Vinyl)
I was only 18 months old when this Album was first issued on vinyl in late '70 and only first heard it in February '83 when it was just over twelve years old. Now it's 30 years old. Few albums stand the test of time but this one does and anyone who borrowed this off of me said what an incredible album it was when they first listened to it. One critic called it the 'War & Peace' of the Rock era. Another said it was an album which gave the feeling of vast horizon's and mountain tops; possibly over the top but given the fact that it was produced by Phil Spector it does have that vast Cathedral like ambience. 'My Sweet Lord' is moving as is 'Isn't it a Pity' whilst 'Wah-Wah' really kicks. 'Awaiting on you all' with the immortal line 'the Pope owns 51% of General Motors'. Though the Apple Jam sessions turn alot of people off they should really listen to 'Out of Blue' especially the slow melancholy part before it starts to take off again. What more can I say a great Album from an individual who was much underated and still is. My final thing is that the Record Compnay should really push this album as there are potentially a whole generation of new listeners. Get it to No.1. as it didn't the last time as there was a Postal Strike and got no further than No.4 in '71.
