A 2001 EPK. Watching it felt like an old family video. There is a great bit of animation at the end.

^ I love those little shots of FPSHOT- it looks like a really cool, chilled place-I'd love if one day Friar Park (even just its grounds) was opened to the public even for a week a year, it looks like such an amazing, quirky place!

I was very upset to see that they've taken down the allthingsmustpass.com website and now it redirects to georgeharrison.com- I liked going on that website from time to time as you could play games on it and there were loads of funky animations similar to the one's above. It looks very good for an early 2000's website compared to other websites.

^^ Feeling the Georgelove! a-hard-days-night-george-9 heart 

'No matter what you do, it sounds immediately like George Harrison .' 

Have truer words ever been spoken? The first time I played 'Give Me Love' for my dad, who'd never heard it before, he said, 'That's George Harrison , isn't it?' And that's one of the biggest reasons I love George's music-- it's always so George. 

My absolute favourite bit under the spoiler. 

Q: When you got the tapes back out here... what did you think? 

George: You mean thirty years later... 

Q: Yeah. 

George: I thought... (puff) God , too much echo.

Unfortunately I'll have to agree with that, but on the negative side - some of his later work sounds very bland to me and same-ish 🙁

Haven't went through it all but after 33 1/3 it kinda went downwards for me.

Anyone else who absolutely loves You? It's a great album opener. And so silly. I love YOUUUOUUUUUUuuuuuuuuu

I'm not a fan of 'You'. A leftover from the 'ATMP ' sessions and its clear why.

I love You too! a-hard-days-night-george-9That outtake might be even nicer.

I couldn't see what's written on the metal guitar plate shown at 5:20 or so...did anyone catch that?

Half of what I say is meaningless...

I guess spinning gave you a good opportunity to "take a good look around" 😉

"i live for you" is such a gorgeous song. So i was pleased to see it finally released.

My favourite track on the official release is also the shortest "Run Of The Mill ". A sweet melody but the lyrics lay out what happened to the beatles in 1969 better than any interview could.

How his bandmates could ignore some of the songs of the quality you hear on "All Things Must Pass " just defies belief.

My favorite one on ATMP is Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let it roll). I don't know what that song is about, I mean, the lyrics are understandable, but the title and the whole point. There's something haunting about it. 

Let it roooooll... that always produces some weird feeling.

Can't hit thank enough times-- I love that song to bits and pieces. It always gives me strange, vivid mental images of faeries and dark woods. And George's 'let it rooooooll!'s send shivers up and down my spine. 

I have a theory that the thing that's being let roll is, I dunno, love perhaps. Or life. Or are they the same thing?... 

On a side note, anyone else notice that Joan and Molly, who are sweeping the stair, are both names from Beatlesongs? Maxwell's Silver Hammer and Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da , respectively.

I always think of rolling tumbleweeds when he says "let it roll", but that might be anything 😀

Interesting notice on Joan and Molly. Never made that connection.

'Run Of The Mill ' is easily my favourite on the LP and easily one of my top 5 Harrisongs. The lyrics are up there with the very best that John and Paul ever wrote. It's also Olivia Harrison's favourite George track.

i always wondered what paul might have thought of "i dig love", something that is so clearly influenced by macca and which could easily have fitted on his first two solo records, much in the same way "let it roll" is influenced by john. 

george clearly learnt a lot from both men.

To be frank I don't see any influence at all in these two songs. Pure George.

I'm quite sure George did learn a lot from John and Paul. At the same time, I don't hear the infuences of either in the songs you cited. Could you be more specific? I'm not disagreeing with you, I'm just wondering what I'm missing. Thanks!

It's funny how people hear music differently eh ?

With "let it roll" the piano playing and the way it leads the melody feels very lennonesque to my ears,and i'm sure he would have loved all the reverb on the track. Lyrically speaking it isn't too far away from john either.

"i dig love" just reminds me of pauls solo cuts on "the beatles" somehow, totally built from scratch in the studio. The fall and rise sequence on electric piano strikes me as something he would have enjoyed messing with. I've always imagined him singing this one as it plays.

But hey i may be totally wrong LOL.

No offense but I think it's the latter a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

Frankie Crisp sounds pure George to me. From lyrics, melody, atmosphere and everything else. I don't think Spector is a link that matters enough to say George was influenced by John.

I Dig Love might sound like a "novelty" on ATMP - which is why you could connect it to Paul who had a lots of these "novelties", like cute little songs - but it's still only George.

Recently fallen in love with this album all over again. 

I know Spector gets shit for the sound on some of the songs, and in some cases its justified, but the album wouldn't be the same without it in my opinion. The sound on Awaiting On You All for example, is otherworldly!

Totally agree, that's why I like the bombastic religious anthem style of Spector and quiet introspective acoustic style of demos just the same. Best example is Let It Down , acoustic and full version.
