George Harrison - All Things Must Pass
all things … gets my vote.
No argument from me. George, Ravi, and Billy Preston (and Robben Ford, I’ve since learned) was my first concert. I was 14 or 15 years old (don’t recall when in 1974 it was). Loved that album. Still play it from time to time. And I’m not a Beatles guy either - much more of a Stones guy, but at that point, I was a huge Hari Georgeson fan...
All Things Must Pass gets my vote too - I've loved this album since it came out. The title track has one of my favourite lines ever: 'Daylight is good at arriving at the right time.'
My favourite Beatles solo is (just) Band in the Run, followed by Plastic Ono Band (which wins some days). My favourite George solo is traveling wilburies volume 1 but since that’s not really a solo, cloud nine. I do very much love all things must pass. But these others just pip it.
Excuse the emoji. Ono.
"Isn't it a Pity" gets my vote for best song by a Beatle.
Certainly can’t argue w “All Things...”, it’s a brilliant album.
I think “Double Fantasy” is John’s best, and my personal fav.
To me probably is Plastic Ono Band
Though I ain’t religious, Amen to that!
Band On The Run takes second, after that I don't think any of their solo work really holds together as great albums. Lots of great songs, but none of the records are as as consistent as those two, or their previous band.
It's hard for me to pick one, but I will say "All Things Must Pass" is a new found gem for me. For whatever reason, I never owned that album until a couple of years ago. I only had complications albums of his work. It didn't click for me right away, but I find myself listening to the album, not so much for the songs I was already familiar with (radio play), but the deeper cuts. It's one of those albums I don't need to hit "skip" to get to the next song. Really nice stuff!
All Things, yes, but all the boys did good stuff. I'm glad that Ringo got in a pretty good one.
Yes. Lots of writing done before the Breakup, much of which was rejected by L&M.
Did you ever wonder what a Studio version of Wah Wah engineered by George Martin might have sounded like?
“It's one of those albums I don't need to hit "skip" to get to the next song.” says a lot.
I'm with you guys on that one.
Great thread. If the Traveling Wilburys counts - that’d have to be my choice.
Otherwise I haven’t spent much time in the Beatles solo world. A little Wings, All Things, Imagine, Cloud Nine (!). One of my favorite singles might be Ringo’s ‘Photograph.’ Loved Camper Van Beethoven's cover of that too.
I'm not overly familiar with the solo albums. But I've never gotten tired of George's songs for Ringo--"Photograph" and "It Don't Come Easy"--and have never gotten tired of "My Sweet Lord."
And I may be waaay off base here (because I don't know as much about the Beatles as I should) but I always thought that some of John's popular solo stuff sounded really Harrison-influenced like "#9 Dream," and the melody (obviously not the lyrics) of "Mind Games."
My favorite is Ram, followed by Plastic Ono Band.
I do think All Things Must Pass is just as good, song-wise, but the Wall of Sound overproduction bugs me too much.
