Classic Day – Revisit Remission


Originally discussed in 2017, All Things Must Pass by George Harrison was dissected in around 500 words, and for a triple album; it was nearly impossible to cover the monumental legacy the album would create.

For being Harrison’s third studio, but reclaimed as his first album, All Things Must Pass are a distribution of a solo venture that for once, works out to be more of a study than previous works. While The Beatles was detrimental to the culture and style of the 60s, 1970 marked the era where All Things Must Pass take over.

Areas focusing on the second part, “Beware Of Darkness” that kicks the second disc off, or the entirely important title track “All Things Must Pass” where Harrison is gorgeous among the somewhat sorrowful and somewhat acceptance.

While the second disc lasts 14 tracks, the entire mix of 28 tracks over two hours becomes the perfect Sunday record as the sunshine pours through the windowpane. Death, life, and liberation through sound; Harrison infiltrates emotion with “All Things Must Pass” and orchestrates the simple, but deeply layered instrumentation to be gripping through release.

He illustrates, “Sunrise doesn’t last all morning, a cloudburst doesn’t last all day. Seems my love is up and has left you with no warning. It’s not always gonna be this grey.” While deeply laced in loss, All Things Must Pass as a record has great strides in pride and overwhelming happiness in sounds.

One of the following, “I Dig Love” is instead a little bit more lively with notions to power through simple vocalization with catchy instrumentation. Through this instrumentation takes a piano riff and ensemble with an electric organ as guitar piles on and becomes one stomping machine of prowess. In the same veins of stabilization where The Beatles progresses, All Things Must Pass is justifiable as the best solo record coming from a Beatle throughout the split of the Fab Four.

The eighth track follows as “Isn’t It A Pity – Version Two” where somber doesn’t even barely begin to describe the styling of the track. Harrison here is much slower than the original version of “Isn’t It A Pity” and thankfully, the harrowing second edition adds majestic strings and vocalization. The true difference is even able to lie with Harrison’s delivery on both vocals and guitar, being minuscule until the build and swell in the midpoint.

“Isn’t It A Pity – Version Two” is one of the most beautiful tracks ever recorded, and perfectly ties in the strength of death, betrayal, and the revisitation of remission. Etching, burning, and finally succumbing to personal pain, All Things Must Pass is the finalization of the breaking apart, the new birth, and the reflection that comes from growth.
