Oh what joy! I was worried it might not live up to the billing......but it does!

It does have an intriguing line-up, just hope it will be released on its own and not remain in the box.

Thanks for posting! I just fall more in love with All Things Must Pass each time I hear a new version.

Completely agree about ATMP , this version is a great bridge between the february '69 demo on Anthology 3 and the officially released version on ATMP . Every time you hear a new version you wish that John & Paul had shown less contempt during the January '69 Get Back Sessions and helped record a decent attempt.

Thanks so much for sharing this, I haven't listened to all but that All Things Must Pass version is just just amazing.

Some, if not all, of these also appear in the documentary (I presume they all do but can't be sure). I really like the My Sweet Lord demo when he hasn't quite worked out *that* chord, and is feeling around for it on the guitar.

Did anyone notice if this cd got released on its own and not just in the box; found two copies in two different stores in Glasgow, both being sold for £6 each but have always though you had to get the box to get the cd?

I don't know what it was called in the DVD box set, but I know it was released separately in May 2012 as Early Takes: Volume 1. I remember it being mentioned in the reviews that it had originally been in the Deluxe DVD set, with them wondering if it signalled the beginning of a series of George outtakes/demos releases. There's no Volume 2 yet though!

Yeah that's the one and name. Completely missed or forgot its release outside of the box. Thanks mja.

I love this compilation but as good as it was I thought it was a little too short and I wonder if we will ever get a Volume 2 in the future? I kind of feel like that ship has sailed but it could happen.

And in the end the lunch you take is equal to the lunch you bake.

They may skip to volume 3 in honor of George.

ahdn_paul_06Clever...

I love this CD. This is my "go to" after a long night's partying, once Zag and Zog have gone off to dreamland. I sip on one last adult beverage, slip on the headphones and completely chill out to this. More than once, I've been awoken by a soft kiss on the cheek*.

Sorry to reply 3 years late @meanmistermustard but I am in total agreement. These songs could/would have represented a way forward for the group and they (John & Paul) missed an etherial musical opportunity. ahdn_george_05

All the versions here have a lovely sense of charm, and for my money all the "All Things Must Pass " material is far superior with Phil Spector's overproduction missing. Giles did a lovely job with this, and so sad Volume 2 hasn't been forthcoming - those demos are highly susceptible to 'grey market' releases given copyright hasn't been extended from 50 years to 70 by even a limited release and it's now 2020.
