I actually like the wall of sound. There are some songs where that kind of production fits in my opinion, Wah-Wah, What Is Life and Awaiting On You All in particular. But I also agree that there are some songs that would sound better without the wall of sound. I've heard a demo version of Run Of The Mill with just George and a guitar and it sounds just lovely, much like the demo of While My Guitar Gently Weeps, but the released version still sounds good. For some reason I find some of the production on Living in the Material World and Dark Horse to be a bit off because I feel like his voice is a bit buried in some songs.

Let It Down is a highlight of the album but Georges demo of the track is just as good. For those who love All Things Must Pass (the album) you should check out the demos George ran thru that are out there - if you havent yet already.

Does anyone have the CD reissued of ATMP in the box? It has an awful updated version of My Sweet Lord. Seriously, I love George and everything, but I'm not sure he really knew his strengths and weaknesses all that well. 

Yes, that's the edition I have. I don't think the updated version of MSL is that bad. Ok, it doesn't live up to the fabulous original, but it's interesting to hear another arrangement.

 

I agree with some of the other comments- the jam tracks are weird! Luckily, they come at the end of the second CD, and so don't ruin the album. All in all, I'm very impressed with this album, and listen to it quite often. Thank you, George, for ATMP! hearta-hard-days-night-george-8

Let's not forget that this is the biggest selling solo Beatles album in history and dwarfs the second biggest which is 'Band On The Run' I do feel that some of the songs are a little too long and am not a huge fan of the 'Wall Of Sound' effect that Spector used on this album but all in all, a terrific release. The jam session was just thrown in as an extra without an additional cost. Sometimes I wish though that ATMP should have been release as a single album. He could have probably made a couple of separate releases from this but since he had so much back material, I guess he just wanted to get it all out at once and start clean with his second release 'LITMW'

Was it George who said that it was like having diarrhea, he now had so many songs that he just had to get them out? Someone likened it to that anyway, forget who.

I quite like the Apple Jams, Johnny's Birthday is especially enjoyable, not that i play them regularly.

 

Joe, i have that 2001 box remaster. Not a big fan of My Sweet Lord (2000) but im not a massive fan of My Sweet Lord. Its okay if played on the radio but its not something i play otherwise.

Supposedly there was another remaster released in 2010 on George's website to mark its 40th anniversary. Does anyone know if that was less Spectorised or in anyway different to the other versions?

I prefer the original mix of 'My Sweet Lord' over the 2001 version though I do like Sam Brown's backgrounds on the newer version.

The only release that came out in 2010 would have been the LP version of ATMP which according to my sources has no new mixes on them.

As with the White Album being the top-selling Beatles album, that's because it's a multi-record package and it's sales are therefore doubled/tripled. Band On The Run sold more actual copies. (For what it's worth!)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Thanks for that Vonbontee for that. Tho you could download the 2010 remaster from George's website.

In regards to the album's size, Harrison stated "I didn't have many tunes on Beatles records, so doing an album like All Things Must Pass was like going to the bathroom and letting it out."

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 That's from Wikipedia. Still trying to figure out how you deduced diarrhea from that! a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Cant imagine how frustrating it would have been having to sit thru endless rehearsals of Across The Universe, Maxwells Silver Hammer and long monotonous jams yet couldnt get any interest from John or Paul for All Things Must Pass. Listening to some of those recordings is hard enough at times, the thought of having to sit there day after daya-hard-days-night-ringo-14paul-mccartney

Really a fine album, features many great songs, although I think many george beatles songs are better than the atmp songs (no wonder many songs were rehearsed by the beatles during the get back sessions but they recorded something, Old Brown Shoe, Here Comes The Sun, For You Blue and I Me Mine which are all better than many atmp songs). Nevertheless I think I Me Mine (at least in spectors mix (obviously because he also produced atmp)) fits better to All Things Must Pass than to let it be. I think it was kind of a preview to All Things Must Pass when it appeared on let it be.
