All Things Must Pass
30th Anniversary Edition
"My Sweet Lord (2000)" - a newly-recorded version of George Harrison's first solo hit - is just one highlight of a 30th anniversary edition of "All Things Must Pass."
The double-CD - personally overseen by Harrison - includes four previously unreleased tracks from the original 1970 recording sessions and the newly-recorded version of the classic song that gave him the distinction of being the first solo Beatle to score a #1 single after the group's breakup.
Sure to pique the curiosity of long-time fans are the previously unreleased tracks, presented at the end of Disc One:
- "I Live For You," an out-take from the sessions that was not used.
- "Beware of Darkness," an alternate version of the song.
- "Let It Down," described as "the original guitar and vocal from the same tape as 'Beware of Darkness' with a little overdubbing circa 2000."
- "What Is Life," a rough mix of the backing track.
- "My Sweet Lord (2000)," an updated version which Harrison produced "to create something extra for the anniversary issue."
"All Things Must Pass" debuted on the Billboard Top LPs chart on December 19th. It hit the #1 spot on January 2, 1971. To date, the album is certified RIAA double-platinum in the U.S. and has sold more than three million copies worldwide.
