The title track from George Harrison’s classic solo album, All Things Must Pass, has had a stereo remix to celebrate the album’s 50th anniversary.
The new mix was overseen by multi-Grammy Award winner Paul Hicks, known for his work with the Harrison Estate, The Beatles and this year’s chart-topping albums by The Rolling Stones (Goat’s Head Soup) and John Lennon (Gimme Some Truth).
Originally released fifty years ago today on November 27, 1970, All Things Must Pass, the triple LP produced by Phil Spector, includes ‘My Sweet Lord’, the first number one single by a solo Beatle.
It was critically acclaimed and topped both the UK and US album charts, with Rolling Stone calling it “the War and Peace of rock and roll” and “an intensely personal statement and a grandiose gesture.” The album has been inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame, included in Rolling Stone magazine’s Top 500 albums of all time, as well as The Times 100 best albums.

“The new stereo mix of the album’s title track is just a taste of more things to come in 2021 as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of my father’s legendary All Things Must Pass album,” says Dhani Harrison. “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. We can’t wait for you all to hear everything we’ve been working on and your patience will be rewarded next year.”
The release of All Things Must Pass (2020 Mix) marks the beginning of celebrations for this landmark album, which will run through 2021, and doubtless see the entire set honoured with a new remix.
In partnership with Record Store Day’s Black Friday event, the Harrisons have released George Harrison’s ‘My Sweet Lord’ on a 7-inch Milky Clear Single, individually numbered, exclusive to Record Store Day. This is a recreation of the Angola pressing of the 45 from 1970, complete with unique artwork. ‘My Sweet Lord’ was originally released in November 1970 as a single, Harrison’s first as a solo artist, and topped charts worldwide; it was the biggest-selling single of 1971 in the UK. The song has the distinction of being the first number one single by an ex-Beatle.
