The 50th anniversary edition of George Harrison's first post-Beatles album ,All Things Must Pass, will be released this Friday.
The 23-song, three-record set has been completely remixed from the original tapes, making it sound brighter, fuller and better than before.
His son Dhani, oversaw the reissue.
“Making this album sound clearer was always one of my dad’s greatest wishes and it was something we were working on together right up until he passed. But with the help of new technology ... we are now able to make that happen."
Among the songs on All Things Must Pass are "My Sweet Lord," What Is Life," "Isn't it a Pity," "Beware of Darkness" and the title track.
The 50th anniversary edition comes in multiple configurations, including a Uber Deluxe Edition for $1,000.
This gets you eight vinyl albums, five CDs and one Blu-ray 5.1 surround sound disc housed in an artisan designed wooden crate. There are 47 demos and outtakes, 42 of which have never been released.
The crate also contains two books. One is an elaborate and expanded 96-page scrapbook curated by his widow,Olivia Harrison, with unseen imagery and memorabilia from the era, handwritten lyrics, diary entries, studio notes, tape box images, a comprehensive track-by-track and more.
The second is 44-pages and chronicles the making of the album through extensive archival interviews with notes. This book pays homage to Harrison’s love of gardening and nature and contains a wooden bookmark made from a felled Oak tree on his Friar Park estate.
