Published Nov 27, 2020Today marks the 50th anniversary of George Harrison's All Things Must Pass, a triple-album that remains one of the best post-Beatles projects. To mark the occasion, Harrison's estate has given the title track a new 2020 stereo mix.
Overseen by engineer Paul Hicks, the new stereo mix is also available as a vinyl 7-inch for today's Record Store Day Black Friday celebrations. George's son, Dhani Harrison, hinted that the new stereo mix is "just a taste of more things to come in 2021" in a statement.
"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," he shared. "But with the help of new technology and the work of Paul Hicks on this project, we are now able to make that happen. We can't wait for you all to hear everything we've been working on."
Harrison's comments seem to indicate that an expanded reissue of All Things Must Pass isn't far away. Earlier this year, Harrison's widow Olivia made mention of unreleased and unheard material from album sessions to Rolling Stone.
"A lot of it has been bootlegged, but we have better versions," she told the magazine. "We have all the 24-tracks of All Things Must Pass, and we found lots of different takes and talking in the studio."
