Seeing the name of this thread, I'm shocked that Red Rose hasn't commented yet....[:D]

ALL THINGS MUST PASS is clearly George Harrison's major masterwork. Almost every song is brilliant. The only problem I have with the album? I'm not a fan of Phil Spector's infamous 'wall-of-sound'. In another producer's hands this could have been so much better.

Standout tracks for me:
ISN'T IT A PITY (versions 1 & 2), BALLAD OF SIR FRANKIE CRISP, BEWARE OF DARKNESS, RUN OF THE MILL, ART OF DYING, HEAR ME LORD, ALL THINGS MUST PASS, LET IT DOWN, IF NOT FOR YOU

Least favorite moments:
The instrumental 'Apple Jam' tracks & AWAITING ON YOU ALL

MY SWEET LORD and WHAT IS LIFE are classics!

I agree with your remarks about Spector.
I personally prefer the whole 2000 package.
Love the outakes and the newer version over the Spector one.
I agreed with George about the reverb.

You can tell the Hendrix influence in The Art Of Dying . . .

Also, I can see why George had two versions of Isn't It A Pity on ATMP. Both versions are great. I'm just guessing really, but I think we got two versions of IIAP because George couldn't choose between them. I like version 2 a little more. The harmonies, the arrangement and the backing vocals resulted in a recording that would not sound out of place had it been released that way on ABBEY ROAD.

ATMP is arguably the best solo album by a Beatle... the production does sound abit dated now but the songs have stood the test of time.
