Let me in here, I know I've been here
Let me into your heart
Let me know you, let me show you
Let me roll it to you

All I have is yours
All you see is mine
And I'm glad to hold you in my arms
I'd have you anytime

Let me say it, let me play it
Let me lay it on you
Let me know you, let me show you
Let me grow upon you

All I have is yours
All you see is mine
And I'm glad to hold you in my arms
I'd have you anytime

Let me in here, I know I've been here
Let me into your heart

This album was the deluge of material he'd accumulated while still in the Beatles. The stuff just never made it onto their albums. I love that there are so many great musicians playing with him on this record. He was my favorite Beatle. This is probably  my favorite of his solo work, Cloud 9  is good, too. It coincided with the Traveling Wilbury work and I think demonstrates the energy in the room with yet another set of great musicians. So sad he's gone.

Agree
From me 8 down to 7

Funny, I just PS'd here from a Lennon solo composition ("Crippled Inside"). from one Beatle to another. That's rare.

And yes, Harrison was no one hit wonder. In almost any other band from that period, he'd be the main songwriter.

While my Guitar Gently Weeps
Something
Here Comes the Sun
Taxman
Within You Without You
Savoy Truffle
I Me Mine
I Want to Tell You
Love You To

That's a partial list that doesn't include his solo work.  Certainly not as prolific as McCartney/Lennon, but the quality of his music excelled.

beautiful guitar, sweet voice    imo high marks above many
Just got this album delivered.  I'm a bit scared to open it, as it is a bit godlike.

The trouble is, at least in my opinion, in the next 30 years his work never came close to this album.  It's like he burst like a supernova and while not gone, never made much of an impression after that huge flash.

Cloud 9?  Brainwashed?  C'mon.
George knew the real meaning of love!

With the Beatles George was given his token one, maybe two songs per album.  After the breakup this album proved that he had a lot more songs that would have been fantastic for the group and they came flooding out with this triple album.  Triple!

The last album that he did, Brainwashed in 2002, was an excellent and sadly underexposed classic.

I just now realized that this is a 10 (from 9); it's really cool!  What was I thinking before?  Maybe just having returned from 12 days in Aruba to the frozen north straightened out my mind.

I've always felt that your favourite Beatle was a kind of personality litmus test.  All the people I knew who liked John best were blunt, rebellious and gifted but sometimes bossy and arrogant.  Paul lovers were affable, charming, often popular but tended to go along with the status quo and could be manipulative.  People who like Ringo best, I often found were easy going, gentle and good-natured.  (Oddly enough they were often homely like Ringo and had big noses too! {#Smile}   )

Those of us to whom George was the favourite were often introspective, shy, very spiritual and often overlooked.  But we were also straightforward and no nonsense: head in the clouds but feet on the ground.  At least, that's what I've noticed.



I am a large part like the people you knew who loved John, and yes, he is my favorite: (blunt, rebellious, skeptical, loving, political)
but am partly like George, too (introspective, shy, open to spirituality.)

When this album first came out, like most of the Beatle's new albums, I didn't like them at all. But time does it's thing and I think this album is one of my very favorites of all of the Beatles material, solo or group. Beware of Darkness guides me daily, even though my life is full of light. Thanks George. You gave the world great perspective.

What an amazing performer and an even better human being-an inspiration for us all!    {#Sad}
I recently watched the DVD set of "The Beatles Anthology" and came to the conclusion that George was probably the most well-grounded of the group. His reflective comments and warm memories were a surprised, of sorts to me.

Anyway, watch the documentary if you have the chance.

RIP, George.

 Didn't like Cloud 9? I thought it was comparable, especially considering his virtual retirement prior to.

Are you thinking of "If Not For You" which appears a few songs later on this album?  Anyway, this one is sublime.

You know I was going to say that, but I thought everyone would think I was crazy.  I know many think it was mostly John and Paul, but maybe George was the real talent behind the Beatles after all.  Good call.

WOW!  I don't think I've heard this song since 1970.

Cool insight. What if your fav was Pete Best or Billy Preston?


We miss you, George...  love this song...

Charlie Watts is my favorite Stone and Peter Tork is my favorite Monkee along with George being my favorite Beatle.  What does that say about me?

BTW, I liked your analysis and think it rings true to a large extent to this day.

Beautiful.
this one makes me swoon.


This song is soooo good for the ears...

George didn't get the credit he deserved, probably for just putting up with the EGOS of John and Paul.  Don't misunderstand, I'm the BIGGEST Beatle fan there ever was!!

The quiet one, George, came into his own on this iconic album, this song is plain evidence of his inspired genius.
Arguably the finest album made by any of the lads in their solo careers, and a triple album to boot!

What a sequence! I am utterly overwhelmed.

beautiful.

and H.B. george

i absolutely love this song. i find it so incredibly romantic.
hadn't known of it until about 3-4 months ago, either. have listened to it numerous times, since.
god bless george.
Should have been made by the BEATLES but the others (John and Paul) had the bigger Personalities ! I , and i am not alone think that George had written the best beatles songs - but he had to wait till there were no Beatles anymore !

Not a good song.

Phenomenal Album! An amazing number of hits came off of this record. This was a box set before they had box sets and all new material. Anyone wanting to get into George Harrison should own this.

His favorites were Dixieland Jazz Bands and Satchmo. That being said, this is a pretty cool song. I hope that my son doesn't think that I am as completely musically irrelevant as I just described my parents.....

This song is so beautiful. Such bittersweet memories it brings back.
"All Things Must Pass", but we lost George way to soon. I miss him so much! Awesome song!
Go on George! :guitarist:
Achingly beautiful.
*sigh* George was my favorite.... This one is soooo nice.

Peace, George... <-o<
Hearing this song is one of the reasons I love Radio Paradise. I grew up on this album, but since I never made the jump from LP to CD, I haven't listened to this in a looooong time., Where else would I get to hear one of the beautiful lesser known George Harrison song? Thanks, RP.
The song that kicked off "All Things Must Pass." Just one of the many greats from that album, and possibly the best use of Spector's "Wall of Sound" production values ever in a rock and roll context.
Simply lovely. I miss you George.
so intoxicating

Sweet. When this album came out I bugged my father to take me to the record store so I could get it. I gulped when I saw it was three discs but didn't regret the purchase. While updating my CD collection several years ago I started looking for the CD version, and lo and behold it was just when All Things Must Pass was being reissued. I wish I still had that poster of George that came with the original. It hung in my bedroom for a long time (along with the psychedelic poster of Dylan that came with his greatest hits album).
Dreamy flashback.
When I was in college, we'd sit around and listen to All Things Must Pass late late at night, with all the lights off, and just the music for illumination. This song takes me back...
Now I remember...
So, so, so, so lovely.
