All Things Must Pass album artwork – George Harrison

Written by: Harrison
Recorded: 20 June 1970
Producers: George Harrison , Phil Spector
Engineers: Ken Scott, Phil McDonald

Released: 30 November 1970 (UK), 27 November 1970 (US)

Available on:
All Things Must Pass

Although All Things Must Pass is better known for its spiritual songs, Harrison had his libidinous moments. ‘I Dig Love ’ is a paean to free love and other earthly pleasures, philosophies he didn’t always share with those closest to him.

And there were other women. That really hurt. In India George had become fascinated by the god Krishna, who was always surrounded by young maidens, and came back wanting to be some kind of Krishna figure, a spiritual being with lots of concubines. He actually said so. And no woman was out of bounds…
It might have been different if I had been a stronger, more confident person: I might have guessed that, with his infidelity, he was just being a boy and would get over it, that it didn’t mean he didn’t love me, but my ego was too fragile and I couldn’t see it as anything other than betrayal. I felt unloved and miserable.

This is a great song!

I think I’m starting to be able to recognise Ringo’s drumming. I thought the fills were him, and was delighted to find I was right a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

The reversal to “I love dig” makes me laugh every time. That may just be my dirty mind though a-hard-days-night-george-10

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

The drum work and sound on this is fantastic and the lyrics are a mixture of daft and delightful. It’s usually viewed as a weak point of the album but it’s always been a highlight for me.
