Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 368/500!

In celebration of its 50th Anniversary, George Harrison's All Things Must Pass is being celebrated with a suite of new releases, highlighted by the limited Uber Deluxe Edition, which presents a stunning new mix of the classic album by Grammy Award-winning mixer/engineer Paul Hicks, overseen by executive producer Dhani Harrison, and includes the album on 8LP and 5CD/BR housed in an artisan designed wooden crate (approx. 12.4" X 12.4" X 17.5").

The collection contains two books, an elaborate and expanded 96-page version of the 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; while a second 44-page book chronicling the making of All Things Must Pass through extensive archival interviews with notes is also contained herein. The elegantly designed books pay homage to Harrison's love of gardening and nature. The book also contains a wooden bookmark made from a felled Oak tree (Quercus Robur) in George's Friar Park.

This truly unique box will also contain 1/6 scale replica figurines of Harrison and the gnomes featured on the iconic album cover, a limited edition illustration by musician and artist Klaus Voormann, as well as a copy of Paramahansa Yogananda's "Light From The Great Ones" and Rudraksha beads, contained in individual custom-made boxes. It also includes a replica of the original album poster.

The set features 70 tracks including 47 demo recordings, session outtakes and studio jams, of which 42 are previously unreleased. The Blu-ray disc includes hi-res stereo, 5.1 surround and Dolby Atmos mixes of the main album.

"All Things Must Pass had two big knocks against it right from day one. The first and foremost was Phil Spector's heavy-handed production, which featured his famous Wall of Sound. Basically, the technique entailed a lot of layering: of multiple instances of the same instrument (why have just one rhythm guitar when you can have five?); of horns and orchestras; of harmonies and background singers; and especially of reverb. The approach had served Spector will on his girl-group records from the early-60s, but it seemed overwhelming on All Things Must Pass. Indeed, on the full-blown tracks George himself seemed lost in the melee.

That's one symptom of the second, closely related problem: the album's atrocious sound quality. Spector's Wall was impenetrable, making it impossible to hear what was really going on. Instead of coalescing, all the musical elements clashed like a lesson in chaos theory. Two factors that might have helped anchor the sound, George's voice and a solid bass line, were both buried too deep in the mix.

No one, least of all George, who was quite vocal on the subject, doubted these failings. But what to do about it? Over the decades the album has undergone multiple remastering efforts, including one in 2001 overseen by Harrison himself. These reaped only minor improvements. The problems were too ingrained to be addressed by mere remastering.

Finally, in 2020, George's son Dhani joined forces with Giles Martin, son of Beatles producer George Martin and the man behind 50th anniversary editions of several Beatles albums. Their goal was to create nothing less than the All Things Must Pass that George had always wanted. To do so, they dug fearlessly into the original mix. There, they found the missing bass - and put it back in. They took George's vocals up several notches, restoring it to prominence. Where possible, they slashed reverb. In general, they remixed tracks in a way that allowed individual parts to speak both individually and as a coherent whole.

The result is a flat-out triumph that's spellbinding to listen to. Never before have we been able to hear everything going on in these dense recordings. Bass, now distinct and full-throated, is entirely transformed. In short, sonically speaking, none of its predecessors can compare to this 50th Anniversary Edition of All Things Must Pass.

That sonic clarity, in turn, allows for a rather surprising musical revelation. Abolish all the sludge fomented by Spector's overuse of reverb and too many overdubs on technically-limited equipment, and you are inescapably left with arrangements that truly enhance these songs. Spector's execution may have been suspect, but his concepts were fundamentally right on.

...Ironically, though this 50th Anniversary Edition of All Things Must Pass was prompted in part by a backlash to Spector's production work, the album may ultimately redeem his reputation. In any case, this new edition gives us, for the first time, all the superb songs of the original album paired with an exemplary recording and production as close as we'll ever get to the way George wanted it. The word 'significant' hardly seems sufficient to describe the achievement. Highly recommended." - Alan Taffel, The Absolute Sound, December 2021
