On August 6th, Capitol/UMe will release a deluxe edition of 'All Things Must Pass', George Harrison's 1970 solo project.
George Harrison’s landmark 1970 solo album All Things Must Pass is getting the deluxe vinyl reissue treatment.
The new edition of All Things Must Pass, landing on August 10th, will be available in a variety of formats, such as LP, CD, and Blu-ray.
The renowned project was produced by Phil Spector and released in the wake of the Beatles’ breakup. The new edition has been remixed from the original tapes by Paul Hicks, product produced by David Zonshine, and executive produced by George Harrison’s son Dhani.
The first disc, from the initial day with Starr and Voormann, includes all 15 of those tunes played by the trio. A second disc consists of Harrison solo demos of another 15 songs, including George-unplugged versions of 'Wah-Wah' and 'Beware of Darkness.'
The third, which Harrison’s son and the reissue’s executive producer Dhani calls “the party disc,” features alternate takes, unheard jam sessions, and studio chatter from Harrison and the pile-on of musicians — Peter Frampton, Billy Preston, Dave Mason, and Eric Clapton and the other Dominos — who contributed to the album.
The Uber Deluxe Edition of the reissue is housed within a specially designed wooden crate, which includes a 96-page scrapbook curated by Olivia Harrison, featuring unseen images, memorabilia, handwritten lyrics, diary entries, studio notes, and more.
There are also a wooden bookmark made from a felled oak tree from Harrison’s Friar Park and replica figurines of Harrison and the gnomes featured on the iconic album cover.
A Super Deluxe version of the release will be presented as an 8xLP box set, featuring 42 previously unreleased demos and outtakes, such as recordings of 'I’d Have You Anytime,' 'If Not for You,' 'Nowhere to Go' and 'I Don’t Want to Do It.'
The groundbreaking English musician, singer-songwriter, and music and film producer passed away back in 2001 after a prolific career.
