“Let It Roll For All It’s Worth…”
On This Date, November 27th, In 1970: George Harrison released his first post-Beatles’ solo album All Things Must Pass. The first triple album by a solo artist, the original vinyl release featured two records of rock songs and a third, entitled Apple Jam that was composed of informal jams led by Harrison with musician friends and other famous musicians. Containing the massive hit singles “My Sweet Lord” and “What Is Life,” the album was eventually certified 6x Platinum by the RIAA. Today, All Things Must Pass is regarded as one of the best albums made by a Beatle as a solo artist. It’s definitely one of my favorite albums ever and I still play it all of the time. Favorite tracks: “Beware of Darkness,” “Wah Wah,” “Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)” and “Awaiting on You All.”
