    aaaaand the dissection of george albums song-by-song BEGINS with the one, the only:
⁣
ALL THINGS MUST PASS (1970)⁣
⁣
containing six sides of 23 songs that radiate nothing but pure aural bliss, all things must pass was actually george’s 3rd solo project; however, his first two — wonderwall music (1968) and electronic sound (1969) — were instrumental, and differ from all things must pass as the latter was a post-beatles album that had merely four instrumental songs in it.⁣
⁣
the album’s recording began in may 1970 at abbey road studios, and finished late october the same year, with the help of very many familiar names, including ringo, billy preston, eric clapton, klaus voorman, and even mal evans - who provided percussion, backing vocals, and “tea and sympathy”.⁣
⁣
upon the record’s release on november 27th of 1970, the vast majority of reviews had given acclaim to the album, and on december 17th the same year — not even a month later — the album had gone gold in the united states - meaning it had sold over 500,000 copies. within a MONTH!!!!! ⁣
⁣
in january 2001, a 30th-anniversary remaster was issued (see photos 7 + 8) which included five additional songs, one being an entirely new tune to the public: “i live for you” was recorded in june 1970 but not released until 2001 as george was dissatisfied with the original take, and that he found it to be “a bit fruity”. ⁣
⁣
the cover for the album was taken by barry feinstein on the main lawn of friar park - very many interpretations (excluding myself, I never even thought about this) have said that the garden gnomes and george’s “towering over them” is a representation of him removing himself from the beatles’ “collective identity”. included among the photos in this post are outtakes of this photoshoot.⁣
⁣
often credited as rock’s first triple-record album and actually being the first ever triple lp to be released by a single act, all things must pass is undoubtedly one on the list of the most legendary albums to date - and will forever hold a place there.

    One thing you might not know about The Beatles’ album Abbey Road is that it featured a Moog synth! George Harrison bought one back in 1969 when it was just newly invented by Robert Moog.⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
The Beatles used the Moog on four of Abbey Road's songs: Maxwell's Silver Hammer, I Want You (She's So Heavy), Here Comes The Sun and Because.⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Some other rock albums that featured the newly invented Moog in the late 1960’s were Strange Days by the Doors, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, & Jones, Ltd. by the Monkees, The Notorious Byrd Brothers by the Byrds, and Simon & Garfunkel's Bookends.⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
These bands didn’t just pick up a Moog synth and play, however. Electronic music pioneers Paul Beaver and Bernie Krause played a key role in popularizing the instrument back in the day, as they were some of the only ones that could program it. The pair did a fair amount of session work.⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
George Harrison’s quote on the Moog synth, from The Beatles Anthology:⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
I first heard about the Moog synthesizer in America. I had to have mine made specially, because Mr. Moog had only just invented it. It was enormous, with hundreds of jackplugs and two keyboards.⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
It was one thing having one, and another trying to make it work. There wasn't an instruction manual, and even if there had been it would probably have been a couple of thousand pages long.⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And a quote from The Beatles’ engineer, Geoff Emerick, from Music Radar:⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Music Radar: The Moog synthesizer was a new addition to The Beatles' lineup of instruments on Abbey Road. Do you recall any new guitars or drums coming in?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Geoff: No. I really couldn't pay attention to that side of things, although I was quite fascinated with what they were doing with the Moog. I was more concerned with tones and getting sounds right. Don't forget, before then, everything was being monitored in mono; this was the first album we recorded in stereo.⁣⁣
