Jesus in Blue Jeans

Back in 1970, George Harrison looked a lot like Jesus in blue jeans, didn't he? ..wearing those work boots, and denim shirts.  He captured some of that spiritual mysticism on his masterpiece album, "All Things Must Pass"...released 40 yrs ago this November.  And what an all-star cast on that recording...! On guitars..Eric Clapton, Dave Mason & Peter Frampton...on drums, Ginger Baker & Ringo..keyboards, Billy Preston & Gary Wright.  To mark the 40th anniversary, the album will be re-mastered, and re-released--even on a 3 LP vinyl set!!  But if you're like probably NEVER listened to the LP with those long, wandering  jams on it.  In my humble opinion..."All Things Must Pass" should have been a SINGLE disc.  George had just come into his own as a songwriter with the Beatles, and I think he had SO much material, he just wanted to release it ALL. The quiet Beatle was making some noise...well, CHANTING a lot, anyway. Look for the remastered album on November 26.
