On November 27th, 1970 George Harrison released his third studio album, All Things Must Pass. Now, 50 years later, the George Harrison Estate has released a new stereo mix of the album’s title track.
Originally released as a triple LP back in 1970, the Phil Spector-produced album included “My Sweet Lord”, the first number one single by a solo member of The Beatles. At the time, All Things Must Pass topped both the U.K. and U.S. album charts, paving the way for its eventual induction into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame.
Paul Hicks, known for his work with the Harrison Estate, The Beatles, and the release of The Rolling Stones‘ Goat’s Head Soup and John Lennon‘s Gimme Some Truth albums, oversaw the “All Things Must Pass” stereo mix. His lengthy career with some of rock’s greatest musicians more than qualified him for this project.
“The new stereo mix of the album’s title track is just a taste of more things to come in 2021 as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of my father’s legendary All Things Must Pass album,” said Dhani Harrison in a press release.
Harrison’s son continued, “We’ve been digging through mountains of tapes, and they just kept coming – boxes and boxes of them. Making this album sound clearer was always one of my dad’s greatest wishes and it was something we were working on together right up until he passed. But with the help of new technology and the work of Paul Hicks on this project, we are now able to make that happen. We can’t wait for you all to hear everything we’ve been working on and your patience will be rewarded next year.”
