ALL THINGS MUST BE CELEBRATED

A new stereo mix of George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass was released today, 11/27, starting the 50th-anniversary celebration of the first Beatle solo album to hit #1.

Paul Hicks, known for his work with the Harrison Estate and The Beatles and on The Rolling Stones’ Goat’s Head Soup, oversaw the new mix.

The Quiet Beatle’s son, Dhani Harrison, said, “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.”

The triple LP, produced by Phil Spector, was released 50 years ago today and spent the first seven weeks of 1971 at #1. Its lead single was “My Sweet Lord,” the first #1 single by a solo Beatle.

As part of Record Store Day's Black Friday, the Harrisons are also releasing “My Sweet Lord” as a 7” on milky clear vinyl with a picture sleeve recreating the Angola pressing of the 45 from 1970.
