All Things Must Pass 50TH Anniversary Editions Out Now
26 August 2021
The 50th anniversary edition of George Harrison’s monumental masterpiece, All Things Must Pass, is available now HERE.
The album has been completely mixed from the original tapes and expanded with 47 (42 previously unreleased) demos and outtakes, allowing listeners to enjoy and explore the album and the legendary recording sessions like never before. Decades in the making and lovingly crafted by the Harrison family, the album was remixed to fulfill Harrison’s longtime desire. Executive produced by Dhani Harrison and mixed by triple GRAMMY® Award-winning engineer Paul Hicks (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, John Lennon), with the product produced by David Zonshine, the new mix transforms the album by sonically upgrading it – making it sound brighter, fuller and better than ever.
All Things Must Pass 50th Anniversary Edition is available in a variety of formats, including a limited edition Uber Deluxe Edition box set, an 8LP or 6-disc (5CD + Blu-ray) Super Deluxe Edition, or a 5LP or 3CD Deluxe Edition that pairs the main album with the outtakes and jams. The main album is also available on its own as 2CD, 3LP or limited edition 3LP color vinyl.
All Things Must Pass 50th Anniversary reviews:
“People used to argue whether this triple album should have been edited down to one or two records – but this edition makes you believe it should have been a quadruple album.”
– ROLLING STONE
“The Beatles guitarist’s most enduring solo album—tweaked and repackaged with bonus material—sounds better than ever at 50-plus.”
“Spector’s fingerprints remain, but the album now sounds warmer, punchier and more energetic, and the surround-sound mix is seductively immersive.”
– WALL STREET JOURNAL
“This new mix updates his finest work for today, in greater detail than ever before, while still managing to retain the atmosphere that binds these 106 minutes together.”
“The original mix’s misty distance has gone, replaced with a clarity and definition that Harrison and Spector didn’t achieve (or seek) the first time around. Previously, one had to, like Spector during the playbacks, turn it up very loud to get the full effect. Not anymore. These mixes come to you.”
“These five-decade-old tapes sparkle with renewed life and a depth partially obscured by Spector’s heavy hand… it’s impossible to find fault with the obvious care and attention to detail dedicated to the end product.”
“All Things Must Pass is a landmark set; one that sounded timeless 50 years ago and will have the same effect 50 years from now. Even, perhaps especially, those who have lived with it for decades will enjoy this appropriately classy, beautifully crafted, refreshed/remixed, and likely definitive version.”
– AMERICAN SONGWRITER
– GUITAR WORLD
“Across 70 tracks, more than half of them previously unreleased, the album’s evolution unspools via demos, outtakes and alternate versions, and it’s a pretty remarkable journey.”
– ULTIMATE CLASSIC ROCK
“All Things Must Pass, the expanded 50th anniversary reissue, is nothing less than essential. It takes one of the greatest works in popular music history (forgive me if you think this is hyperbole but let’s at least admit that if so, it’s only slight), and expounds upon its genius by exposing its creation… Consider it the seminal reissue of a seminal original. You will find few done better.”
