299 Responses to “George Harrison :: All Things Must Pass (3 LP Set)”

  1. It’s a tough call, but my favorite track is “If Not For You”. Though not written by Harrison, it reminds me of his Help! / Rubber Soul love songs. Short, sweet and to the point.

  2. Isn’t it a Pity, followed closely by Wah Wah.

  3. Apple Scruffs

  4. Wah-Wah is my fave. That song just blows me away every time.

  5. My favorite track would have to be “Beware of Darkness.”

  6. Hard to choose….Right now I’ll go with What is Life

  7. My favorite track would have to be the EPIC “My Sweet Lord”. “Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)” is a close second though.

  8. My choice would be “Let It Down,” although the demo is even better.

  9. “Behind That Locked Door”.

  10. “Let it Down” for sure. Great tune, powerful and the Spector production works on this tune, even though it shouldn’t.

  11. Behind That Locked Door

  12. “What is Life” is probably the song that sticks with me most…

  13. My Sweet lord.

    But really if I’m listening to anything it’s going to be the whole thing.

    nickbahulaisdead@yahoo.com

  14. “My Sweet Lord” gets me every time.

  15. My Sweet Lord

  16. “Awaiting on You All”

  17. I have this on the original vinyl with the Apple logo. I love the songs “Isn’t It a Pity” and “Beware of Darkness”. The whole album is great

    jeffkinzergmail.com

  18. “If Not For You”

  19. I’m going to have to go with the title track. As the years go by, every event that leads to a nostalgic/mournful/wistful feeling aso demands a few spins of “All Things.” I’ve always thought that “All Things Must Pass,” along with “After the Gold Rush,” “God,” and “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” are the great eulogies of the 1960s.

  20. please please please isaac Soloway isolstro@gmail.com

  21. I know it’s a lighter cut on a heavy album, but “Apple Scruffs” has always stuck out for me.

  22. If Not For You

  23. Tough to pick one, but “Wah-Wah” has a special place in my heart. Thanks for making me think of it.

  24. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp is an all-timer.

  25. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp

  26. Behind That Locked Door.
    Thanks.

  27. I go for Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp as do a few other readers I see…

  28. Run Of The Mill

  29. I would think that Wah-Wah is the one for me. It really cranks!

  30. Have to go with the “Isn’t It a Pity” off the first side, first disc.

  31. Let It Down

  32. Gotta be “What Is Life”. No questions asked. I’m surprised only one other person has chosen it. Oh well.

  33. hmm i like the looseness of Out of the Blue and I Remember jeep. and the tightness of All Things Must Pass the title track.

  34. “My Sweet Lord”

  35. Isn’t It A Pity is my favorite for sure.

  36. “All Things Must Pass”

  37. “Wah-Wah” gets me, almost every time.

  38. All Things Must Pass

  39. Beware of Darkness

  40. wah-Wah…I once made a playlist on my iPod that was all ex-Beatles tracks about being a Beatle “God” “How do You Sleep” “Too Many People” “If You Were Here Today” “When We Was Fab” but Wah-Wah by Harrison is genius

  41. “What is Life” is my favorite. It is just full of that barely-contained-energy of a full heart, from the guitar opening, to the explosive horns, and that sing along (at the top of your lungs) chorus.

  42. i have and always will love “I’d have you anytime”

  43. What is Life.

  44. Ballad of Sir Frankie, always. But oh, what I wouldn’t do for all the other songs as well

  45. I am the dark horse.

  46. Gotta be “Beware of Darkness”.

  47. My Sweet Lord. Most of the songs are good; the jams less so.

  48. Easy, the title track, “All Things Must Pass.”

  49. Apple Scruffs

  50. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp is my personal favorite.

  51. What is Life. (no doubt)

    Top 3 albums of all time
    1. Van Morrison: Astral Weeks
    2. Miles Davis: Kind of Blue
    3. George Harrison: All Things Must Pass

  52. Today? “Apple Scruffs.”

  53. Wah-Wah.

    Easy.

  54. Thanks for the Pepperoni…okay, not really…Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp, it is.

  55. currently… #1 What Is Life and 2nd up, even though you didn’t ask for second favorite… Thanks for the Pepperoni

  56. Isn’t it a pity, my favorite… It’s hard to chose. What a fantastic record.

  57. “Let it down”

  58. “Beware of Darkness” is not only the best song on the record, it’s the best song recorded by a member of the Beatles, post-Beatles. Yes. Okay, “Gimme Some Truth” is as good (but not better).

  59. “wah-wah”

  60. “My Sweet Lord.” The Billy Preston version from the Concert for George is well worth checking out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvH6fxP5hMo.

  61. My Sweet Lord

  62. apple scruffs! a lil bit a happy, everytime

  63. Behind That Locked Door

  64. “awaiting on you all” — no contest!

  65. My Sweet Lord. But mostly I need a copy because I lost the poster that came with my original one. this one does have the big poster pull out , correct?

  66. “I Dig Love”…

  67. apple scruffs!

  68. Beware of the darkness.
    This is song is so good.

  69. “All Things Must Pass” brought me solace in recent years.

  70. It’s Johnny’s Birthday
    I sometimes sing it to my friend on his birthday(his name is johnny)

  71. “Hear Me Lord”, hook me up

  72. Wah Wah

  73. what is life.

  74. Isn’t it a Pity

  75. Wild about Wah Wah

  76. I love “Isn’t It A Pitty” . . . .should have gotten Beatles respect. I love this RECORD!

  77. All Things Must Pass

  78. Art of Dying

  79. Behind that Locked Door

  80. “What is Life”–makes me wanna dance like Snoopy!

  81. Let It Down.

  82. “My Sweet Lord”

  83. Lit it Down!

  84. Behind That Locked Door.

  85. wah wah

  86. If Not For You.

  87. all things must pass…

  88. ‘My Sweet Lord’ (b/c of the inclusion of a mantra)

  89. Hands down…no brainer for me: If Not For You.

  90. Art of Dying

  91. Has to be “If Not For You”

  92. “Art of Dying”

  93. Awaiting on You All, but this question is impossible.

  94. “What Is Life” is, hands down, the reason that I first investigated this album. There are so many great tunes on those three LPs that it’s little surprise to see how varied the answers are here.

  95. apple scruffs

  96. Run of the Mill

  97. Pick me…its easy to hear the formation of Derek and the Dominos on many of these tracks (Wah Wah).

    Bobby Whitlock is great, but Carl Radle is the man. Jim Gordon…a little scarey.

    Please.

  98. If not for you

  99. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)

  100. Wah Wah!

  101. My Sweet Lord

  102. Right now I’m really digging the title track

  103. “Here Me Lord” is my favorite. This album nearly trumps Electronic Sound ;)

  104. “Hear Me Lord” that is…

  105. Beware of Darkness

  106. I’d Have You Anytime.

  107. Easy – If Not For You.

  108. I’d Have You Anytime

  109. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)

  110. Wah Wah.

  111. Right now, I’ll have to go with “My Sweet Lord”.

  112. 180 Moss Way, Oakland, CA 94611

    “I’d Have You Anytime”

  113. wah wah

  114. Me being as anti-pop radio as I am, I never gave the Beatles much of chance. Then I discovered this album in my dad’s record collection it made me reconsider my views. Now I’m as big a fan as everyone else and I can thank Mr. Harrison for that. My favorite track is “Wah-Wah.”

  115. About half a dozen I go back and forth between. Today it’s “Behind That Locked Door” because of the My Morning Jacket cover version.

  116. Title Track, “All Things Must Pass.” There are so many great lines in that song, and the music is phenomenal. My favorite version, though, is the solo rendition on The Beatles’ “Anthology 3″

  117. Awaiting on You All.

  118. My Sweet Lord. It stops me in my tracks and sends waves of emotion through me, no matter the surrounding environment or mood.

  119. My favourite George Harrison song is “Beware of Darkness,” which has a real Badfinger sound to it.

  120. “I’d Have You Anytime” the first track always sets the mood…

  121. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll) for sure. (and that cover by Yim Yames)

  122. My Sweet Lord. A favorite of favorites.

  123. Wah-Wah

  124. All Things Must Pass…..easy.

  125. Hands down my favorite song on the album is What is Life. All Things Must Pass is a close second. George Harrison really exploded with this chestnut album soon after the Beatles broke up. Would we have had many of these songs as Beatle versions if the breakup didn’t happen? I know that several ATMP songs were rehearsed with the Beatles but events led to this release of material that we are still talking about some 40 years later.

  126. If Not For You

  127. “What is Life,” followed by “Wah Wah.”

  128. Has to be “My Sweet Lord”

  129. Isn’t It A Pity 1

  130. All Things Must Pass

  131. Isn’t it a pity (version 2)

  132. Apple Scruffs!

  133. Gotta go with the title track on this one. Just a gorgeous song. Might be the best song about death I’ve heard.

  134. Definitely Wah Wah

  135. The title track, All Things Must Pass. Brilliant song and mantra. Thanks George, sorry the lads kept you down for so long…

  136. That changes based on the day, but today I’d go with If Not For You

  137. Out Of The Blue

  138. Wah Wah

  139. What is life
    robison.james@rocketmail.com

    James Robison

  140. Apple Scruffs

  141. I would have to pick the title track “All Things Must Pass”. It could have been a great closing song on Get Back.

  142. I’m partial to Apple Scruffs only because it sums up George Harrison to me – able to write a catchy yet meaningful song about something as simple as kids hanging around Apple Corp.

    Joel Schneider
    j.schneider34@yahoo.com

  143. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll) – just so ethereal, it makes me cry and give me chills at the same time

  144. “My Sweet Lord” it’s just such a beautiful song.

  145. Love some good Sir Frankie Crisp.

  146. “My Sweet Lord” …eternal classic

  147. “What is life”

  148. Either Wah-Wah or the title track. Both go through the flesh and tap on my bones.

  149. “My Sweet Lord” !!

  150. “Apple Scruffs”! I want! I want!

  151. “All Things Must Pass” has always had a very strong emotional tug on my spirit. Very motivational song…makes me feel like there’s a reason to move on in spite of tough times. I also think it would be great to hear this on a quality vinyl pressing. Thanks for the chance!

  152. If not for you. blew me away.

  153. Tough one but I’ll have to go with “Wah-Wah.” Love me some George Harrison

  154. My Sweet Lord was the first George Harrison song I ever heard, and it is still a favorite.

  155. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)

    Really loved Jim James’ GH tribute last year. What an EP…

  156. All things must pass.

  157. “I’d Have You Anytime” Such great sentiment.

  158. not sure if it’s my favorite but it is the most poignant to me: “my sweet lord” reminds me of my friend nathaniel…. he took his life by stepping into the path of one of those “Gauranteed Ontime Delivery” semi’s that have GOD printed on the side (on the ides of march no less!!) He had a cassette copy of All things must pass in his walkman. He was a heavy dude and is sorely missed.

  159. Ahhh, Harrison and Dylan’s “I’d Have You Anytime”.

  160. all things must pass.

  161. Apple Scruffs.

    Nobody ever made three simple chords sound so good.

  162. Id go Apple Scruffs…hard to choose though.

  163. wah wah

  164. Gotta be Isn’t It a Pity, the music is great but the lyrics make the song. Wah Wah is close beyond just for the guitar play.

  165. What is Life…duh.

  166. wah wah

  167. if not for you and all things must pass.

    also, I’ve been replying to these kinds of posts (and many others) for years. give a guy a break.

    PPS, tell Futurebirds to get their ass to Tallahassee — and book it at a more reputable venue, so they don’t have to cancel another show here.

  168. “What Is Life” Thank you! Ray

  169. it has to be “oh sweet lord”

  170. What is life

  171. Close between “I Dig Love” and “Behind That Locked Door.” And I hate the song Wah Wah, so I would ask for it to be scratched out of any vinyl copy I may or may not win.

  172. “My Sweet Lord” I would have to say.

  173. Let It Down

    spiritualized 20 years in advance

  174. “If Not For You” …Though a Dylan song, it’s one of the few covers I prefer over the original… How I wish they had collaborated more

  175. It’s Johnny’s Birthday. I play it for myself once a year. Actually: RUN OF THE MILL

  176. “Isn’t It A Pity” breaks my heart every time.

  177. If Not For You.

  178. “What is Life” for sure, for sure. I spent days in my room listening to this album. Days…….what happened to my copy????? How is it I’ve managed to hold onto John Cale’s “Sabotage” for years and years and lost this one?

  179. “Art of Dying”…no brainer

  180. When I was 14 and learning to play guitar in the early 70′s, my guitar teacher taught me to play My Sweet Lord. But I always been mesmorized by Apple Scruffs; simple, melodic, and some awesome guitar strumming.

  181. Isn’t It A Pity, version Two
    The chord change simply falls beneath your fingers on the piano and lets the guitar float sublimely on top.
    If nothing else, the ultimate reality check of life as we may or may not know it on this planet.
    Thank you George, for your passion and clear innocent perception.

  182. “Awaiting on You All” is #1, followed closely by “Wah Wah.”

  183. “What Is Life” is my favorite, followed (closely) by “Wah Wah.”

  184. “My Sweet Lord”

    It still gives me goosebumps.

  185. Run of the Mill, what an album. The demo version is actually even better too. When I first heard All THings Must Pass I was moved and became actually giddy near the end of it. I had no idea George was capable of such a powerful effort. I’d say its my favorite beatles solo album at this point. Apple scruffs is a close second.

  186. If Not For You.

  187. Anything really.

    Wah, Wah or My Sweet Lord will do for today

    Thanks for the consideration

  188. What is Life
    Ahhhhgggg

  189. Hear me Lord,
    that gets me everytime. screaming guitar, beautiful feeling.

    Love the aquarium drunkard, Been turned onto so many great artists.

    Thanks

  190. Apple Scruffs

  191. best intro “I’d Have You Anytime”

  192. My Sweet Lord is always a classic but Im gonna have to go with the very first track “I’d Have you Anytime” The guitar is too soothing.

  193. “My Sweet Lord”

  194. They’re all good when played loud enough. Behind That Locked Door and Wah Wah, especially. But if I had to pick just one it would be My Sweet Lord.

  195. ‘If Not For You’

  196. i’ve listened to “My Sweet Lord” countless times, and it still gives me chills. not just my favorite George song, but my favorite song in the Beatles family tree

  197. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)

  198. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp. I honestly thought I would be in the minority. Couldn’t be more wrong.

  199. Behind that Locked Door. Was the song my dad and I danced to at my wedding.

  200. Run Of The Mill

  201. Can’t help myself – I have to say “My Sweet Lord”.

  202. If not for you or my sweet lord.

  203. I concur – “My Sweet Lord”

  204. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp

  205. If Not for You

  206. Wah-Wah

  207. behind that locked door.

    thanks for the chance!

  208. “What Is Life” is a stanout, but there are many others too. This record has aged very well.

  209. mfbrof@gmail.com

    “Beware of Darkness” cuz my pops told me it was about the closing of the mind, and the death of the soul, and I was seven.

  210. My Sweet Lord

  211. Isn’t is a pity?

  212. Behind that locked door

  213. Definitely “Run of the Mill” with a close second to “Let It Down”

  214. I’d have to say Isn’t It A Pity is my favorite track on the album, but Beware of Darkness gets me every time I hear it.

  215. Let It Down, gotta agree with others who said the demo version from the cd rerelease is really the one….

  216. All Things Must Pass

  217. What Is Life

  218. (Let It Roll). I listened to this album from when I was a baby.

  219. My Sweet Lord

  220. If you’re talking about the original album, “Behind That Locked Door” is my choice. But I really love 2 cuts off of the ’01 remaster: “I Live For You” (sweet steel part) and the solo “Let It Down”. Amazing stuff.

  221. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll). Amazing.

  222. Isn’t it a Pity, for sure.

  223. Isn’t It a Pity

  224. If Not For You

  225. so many great songs on this album, i always really liked the jamming tracks, too, a really stellar group of musicians. fav track i’m gonna go with “i live for you”.

  226. Apple Scruffs, how I love you.

  227. “What is Life” hands down.

  228. I’d have you anytime.

  229. The title track is my favorite.

  230. Gotta go with “What is Life”

  231. I am partial to the title track, “All things Must Pass”. I think it is George’s Masterpiece.

  232. First heard “Isn’t it Pity” through Galaxie 500, which lead me to discover this lovely album. It’s still my favorite.

  233. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp(Let It Roll) always comes to mind. The drums are incredible sounding on that one. The version of All Things Must Pass on Anthology 3 is far superior to the Spector version. They were all doing such great stuff. Love the steel on Behind That Locked Door as well.

  234. I’d Have You Anytime. so beautiful….

  235. All Things Must Pass

  236. I feel like I should say ‘Thanks For The Pepperoni’ just to set me apart and possibly get noticed for the contest, but in reality my favorite is ‘Behind The Locked Door’ (and if you haven’t heard the Jim James version, so yourself a favor and give it a listen…)

  237. Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)

  238. Tough one–it’s a fantastic record. I love the balance of joy and wistfulness captured in “Apple Scruffs”; its captures George’s personality the best.

  239. The acoustic version of “Let It Down” is simply incredible. I have so many beautiful memories of listening to that song.

  240. Run of the mill :)

  241. The title track, man… what a mystical tune, All Things Must Pass. You know what I mean… nothing better than laying down to go to bed with George Harrison putting you to sleep; enchanting, and you’re guaranteed to have good dreams, no nightmares, no way.

  242. live and die to Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp. keep up the good work on this blog. thanks.

  243. All Things Must Pass.

  244. my sweet lord

  245. All Things Must Pass is my favorite – there’s a reason it’s the title track!

  246. Apple Scruffs

  247. all things must pass

  248. Wah-Wah

  249. Beware of Darkness is my favorite. But what’s with the garden gnomes on the cover? George looks a little bit like one too on that LP.

  250. My Sweet Lord takes the cake for me.

  251. Gotta be wah-wah, just a shot of pure musical adrenaline

  252. If Not for You…odd that it’s a cover but there it is. Also what is it about a triple LP that is so uniquely exciting?

  253. Thanks for the Pepperoni

  254. Isn’t it a Pity… somewhat ironic since I think it was the B-Side to the song that brought him a heap of legal trouble.

  255. Definitely Wah-Wah.

  256. If Not for you.

    Thanks!

  257. Run of the Mill! Those horns get me every time.

  258. Behind That Locked Door

  259. What Is Life. Fantastic

  260. It’s gotta be Wah Wah peeps.

  261. Wah-Wah-Wah-Wah-Wah-Wah-Wah-Wah (x10)

  262. If I had to choose it’d be “What is Life” but love the whole album.

  263. let it down.

  264. Wah Wah

  265. My Sweet Lord.

  266. it’s really hard but either beware of darkness or isnt it a pity

  267. isaac Soloway isolstro@gmail.com wah-wah

  268. isn’t it pity would have to be my favorite.

  269. Thanks for the pepperoni

  270. title track! All Things Must Pass.

  271. gimme life!

  272. The Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll). So encapsulates everythign that made Harrison Harrison. Simple, elegant, crisp.

    Brad Kelley

  273. Isn’t It a Pity

  274. “Isn’t It a Pity.” Which it will be if I don’t win.

    Steven

  275. Run of the mill.
    Everybody has choice,when to or not to raise their voice!

  276. Isn’t It A Pity!

  277. Wah-Wah.

  278. apple scruffs

  279. “Hear Me Lord” Can you?

  280. Please unlock that 3-LP anniversary reissue from Behind That Locked Door and send it my way!

  281. Too tough – All Things Must Pass

  282. “All Things Must Pass” — it’s been really speaking to me lately with where I am in my life.

  283. Isn’t it a pity. Thanks

  284. LET IT DOWN. (Hands down- so heavy!)

  285. Hands down–”Behind That Locked Door”

  286. Apple Scruffs

  287. Isn’t a pity.

  288. Wah Wah.

  289. “I’d Have You Anytime”!!

  290. “Awaiting on you all” by far my favourite track.

  291. I think Wah Wah has to be my favorite, i love the whole album, but every time i hear that opening riff of wah wah i get excited and turn it up loud

  292. My Sweet Lord

  293. Wah-Wah. I heard that the phaser unit that they used on that song was manual at the time so Phil Spector was yelling “MORE PHASER, PHASE EVERYTHING!!!” and the poor guy who was doing it had to keep turning the knob back and forth. Also i think Billy Preston Plays keyboards on it. Eric Clapton on guitar. Great example of the wall of sound. I saw clapton play Isn’t It A Pity At Crossroads in 2008 when i was 15 and it really was powerful live. However I have to Pick Wah Wah as my favorite song on the album.

  294. “WHAT IS LIFE” MAKA MA BUTT WATER

  295. “All Things Must Pass” is my all time favorite!

  296. it a pity is my favourite

  297. favorite song on album is “if not for you”george harrison all things must pass 2010 lp giveaway

  298. “Out of the Blue”. Great Jam.

  299. rough choice, id take , all things … and let it down
