All Things Must Pass album artwork – George Harrison

Written by: Harrison
Recorded: May-October 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
Early Takes: Volume 1

Released on George Harrison ’s 1970 opus All Things Must Pass , ‘Run Of The Mill ’ was inspired by the dysfunction in the last months of The Beatles, and especially Harrison's deteriorating relationship with McCartney.

I liked the words to 'Run Of The Mill '. It was the first song I ever wrote that looked like a poem on paper, whereas most of them don't seem much until you put the lyric with the tune. It's like the North of England thing – you know, 'Trouble at t'mill': it was when Apple was getting crazy – Ringo wanted it blue, John wanted it white, Paul wanted it green and I wanted it orange. Paul was falling out with us all and going around Apple offices saying 'You're no good – everybody was just incompetent (the Spanish Inquisition sketch). It was that period – the problem of partnerships.

Olivia's favorite song. Probably mine too. Just kinda sums it all up. It was inspired by George's personal problems, but he made it into a humble life lesson, really.
