All Things Must Pass was released on 27 November 1970 in the United States, and on 30 November in Britain, [237] with the rare distinction of having the same Apple catalogue number (STCH 639) in both countries. The collection contains a beautiful 60-page scrapbook curated by Olivia Harrison, with unseen imagery and memorabilia from the era, handwritten lyrics, diary entries, studio notes, tape box images, a comprehensive track-by-track and more.

The extent of Harrison's success surprised the music industry and largely overshadowed Lennon's concurrently released Plastic Ono Band album, which Spector also co-produced. Adding to the commercial appeal of Harrison's songs, All Things Must Pass appeared at a time when religion and spirituality had become a trend among Western youth.

It was ranked 433rd on Rolling Stone 's list of the " 500 Greatest Albums of All Time" in 2012 [315] and 368th on the 2020 updated list. Adding to his and Badfinger's acoustic guitars on some All Things Must Pass tracks, Harrison invited Peter Frampton to the sessions. Sadly this was to be the last album that he would issue as George passed away later that year, in fact 14 years ago today.

With Harrison undertaking extensive promotional work, the 2001 reissue was a critical and commercial success. Going Down to Golders Green" – a Sun Records-era Presley parody based on the melody of " Baby Let's Play House". The majority of the album's backing tracks were taped on 8-track at EMI between late May and the second week of June. According to Leckie, however, the reverb on tracks such as "My Sweet Lord" and "Wah-Wah" was recorded onto tape at the time, because Spector insisted on hearing the effects in place as they worked on the tracks.

Co-produced by the unhinged genius that was Phil Spector, it features his biggest solo hit in the 'He's So Fine' - soundalike, 'My Sweet Lord'. Several commentators interpret Barry Feinstein's album cover photo, showing Harrison surrounded by four garden gnomes, as a statement on his independence from the Beatles. Also included is an original poster with the back containing notes by Dhani Harrison and Paul Hicks about remixing the album. The latter was another song influenced by Harrison's association with the Radha Krishna Temple, [76] and was written while some of the devotees were staying with him at Friar Park.

Ben Gerson of Rolling Stone deemed All Things Must Pass "both an intensely personal statement and a grandiose gesture, a triumph over artistic modesty" [2] and referenced the three-record set as an "extravaganza of piety and sacrifice and joy, whose sheer magnitude and ambition may dub it the War and Peace of rock 'n' roll". The face label on each side of disc three contained a jam jar painted by designer Tom Wilkes, showing a piece of fruit inside the jar and two apple leaves on the outside.

Martin O'Gorman, "Film on Four", Mojo Special Limited Edition: 1000 Days of Revolution (The Beatl Author and music journalist Mikal Gilmore has written that Lennon's initial negativity regarding All Things Must Pass was possibly because he was "irritated" by this cover photo; [200] Harrison biographer Elliot Huntley attributes Lennon's reaction to envy during a time when "everything [Harrison] touched turned to gold".

There is a surprising Clarity to the original recordings and there seems to be a "richer" overall sound quality. Recorded and released in 1970, the album was Harrison's first solo work since the break-up of The Beatles in April that year. That same month, Harrison finished his production work on Starr's 1971 single " It Don't Come Easy", the basic track for which they had recorded with Voormann in March at Trident. The title for "I Remember Jeep" originated from the name of Clapton's dog, Jeep, [91] and "Thanks for the Pepperoni" came from a line on a Lenny Bruce comedy album.

In America, All Things Must Pass spent seven weeks at number 1 on the Billboard Top LP's chart, from 2 January until 20 February, and a similarly long period atop the listings compiled by Cash Box and Record World; [258] for three of those weeks, "My Sweet Lord" held the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
