All Things Must Pass is a triple album by English musician George Harrison. Recorded and released in 1970, the album was Harrison's first solo work since the break-up of the Beatles in April that year, and his third solo album overall. It includes the hit singles "My Sweet Lord" and "What Is Life", as well as songs such as "Isn't It a Pity" and the title track that had been turned down for inclusion on releases by the Beatles. The album reflects the influence of Harrison's musical activities with artists such as Bob Dylan, the Band, Delaney & Bonnie and Billy Preston during 1968–70, and his growth as an artist beyond his supporting role to former bandmates John Lennon and Paul McCartney. All Things Must Pass introduced Harrison's signature sound, the slide guitar, and the spiritual themes that would be present throughout his subsequent solo work. The original vinyl release consisted of two LPs of songs and a third disc of informal jams, titled Apple Jam. Several commentators interpret Barry Feinstein's album cover photo, showing Harrison surrounded by four garden gnomes, as a statement on his independence from the Beatles.

Following the entirely self-composed A Hard Day’s Night, The Beatles’ fourth album sounds like a record with a dual personality. The group’s assimilation throughout 1964 of current musical and lyrical ideas is apparent in the new songs. However, a selection of cover versions reveals a warm acknowledgement of their musical roots. As always, The Beatles were looking ahead, but they had not forgotten their first love: rock ’n’ roll.

Beatles For Sale was made during seven sessions that were squeezed into an unremitting schedule during August, September and October. With scarcely a moment to spare, it was hardly surprising that this album reverted to the 1963 formula of combining eight originals with six covers. The first side opened with three melodically strong, if rather melancholy, Lennon/McCartney songs. ‘No Reply’ sets the tone with its musical tension between the despondent verses and a confident middle eight. During their first trip to New York in February 1964, The Beatles were introduced to Bob Dylan. His influence percolated through Beatles For Sale, particularly in the sound and words of ‘I’m A Loser’. Although, for now, the subject matter of their new songs did not stray from conventional variations on matters of the heart, ‘Baby’s In Black’ did suggest something unusually ominous.

In the UK, none of the album’s tracks came out as a single. ‘I Feel Fine’/‘She’s A Woman’ had been released a week earlier and sold a million within twelve days. In the USA, there was no album called Beatles For Sale. Instead, eight of its tracks were included on Beatles ’65 …but not ‘Eight Days A Week’. That song was first made available in America on a single, which reached number one in March 1965. Completing Beatles For Sale involved a race against the clock to hit an immovable deadline. Consequently, they quickly recorded some old stage favourites learnt from discs by four of their heroes from the 1950s: ‘Rock And Roll Music’ by Chuck Berry, ‘Honey Don’t’ and ‘Everybody’s Trying To Be My Baby’ by Carl Perkins, ‘Words Of Love’ by Buddy Holly and ‘Kansas City/‘Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey!’ by Little Richard. Under enormous pressure, they made it. Beatles For Sale was released on 4 December 1964 - just in time for Christmas.
