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.

I have very mixed feelings about this one. As y'all may know, I am a very big fan of the spaciousness of the original mix, because the misty green field that If Not For You evokes in my mind is here opened out, tinged with an autumnal cast, and made more melancholic than sweet, but no less evocative and magical of a space. The new mix is warm and clear and George is right in your ear, but there's a weird distracting double-track far in the left channel that was more drowned/fit better in the original but sticks out here.

As always, it's nice to hear the elements more clearly, but I think at the end of the day it just doesn't do it for me overall. I imagine someone who feels the song was drowned by the production, rather than elevated, would like this remix. Music is, after all, about evoking a mood, and I think some of us get different moods than others.
