All Things Must Pass at 50

Listen To All Things Must Pass at 50 on BBC Radio 4

In November 1970 a triple album was released by the Beatle previously known as ‘the Quiet One’. George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass was unique, not because it was number one around the world, but because of its fascination with Eastern religion.
Growing up in the 1970s, musician and composer Nitin Sawhney was aware of George Harrison and his interest in Indian classical music, particularly his close connection with Ravi Shankar. He knew Harrison’s hit singles, but his most famous album, All Things Must Pass, remained unexplored. Was this LP, written in the latter years of the 1960s already out of date in 1970, or was it in fact ahead of its time, with its heart-felt lyrics and religious themes? This month sees the 50th anniversary of the its release and so is a good time to reappraise George Harrison’s most successful album.

Interviewees include Olivia Harrison, Michael Palin, Jools Holland, biographers Graeme Thomson and Joshua M. Greene, keyboard player Bobby Whitlock, drummer Alan White, and guitarist Dave Mason.

The Material World Foundation, created by George Harrison in 1973, is today donating $500,000 to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, Save the Children and Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) charities, which are providing much needed aid and care during this COVID-19 pandemic.

To help raise additional funds the Foundation has also launched The Inner Light Challenge. The challenge asks people around the globe to share a verse, chorus, or line from The Beatles song ‘The Inner Light’ and post it with the hashtag #innerlight2020. For every person that shares their own "Inner Light" moment on social media using the #innerlight2020 hashtag, the Material World Foundation will give another $1 (up to $100,000) to help those affected by the virus.

Without going out of my door, I can know all things on earth.

Without looking out of my window, I can know the ways of heaven.

Olivia Harrison said, "These lyrics sung by George are a positive reminder to all of us who are isolating, in quarantine or respecting the request to shelter in place. Let’s get and stay connected at this difficult time.  There are things we can do to help and we invite you to share your Inner Light.”

The Inner Light Challenge:

The Material World Foundation will donate another $1 (up to $100,000) for every one of you who shares their own "Inner Light" moment on social media using the hashtag #innerlight2020 

This can be a verse, a chorus, or a line from the song, just sing it, play it, hum it, strum it, paint it, knit it, chant it, plant it, pray or meditate and post it to social media using the hashtag #innerlight2020

Watch Dhani Harrison’s cover of the song here:  https://youtu.be/229aVjM4uf8 

Without going out of my door
I can know all things on earth
Without looking out of my window
I can know the ways of heaven

The farther one travels
The less one knows
The less one really knows

Without going out of your door
You can know all things on earth
Without looking out of your window
You can know the ways of heaven

The farther one travels
The less one knows
The less one really knows
Arrive without traveling
See all without looking
Do all without doing

0 1

To mark what would have been George’s 77th birthday, Liverpool City Council and the George Harrison Estate announce that a new memorial woodland in his honour will open in Liverpool.

The George Harrison Woodland Walk, will be located in south Liverpool close to where George was born and grew up.  The 12 acre site will combine garden and woodland with a number of artistic installations inspired by George's life and lyrics.

The city council and the Harrison family want to encourage artists to design new artworks which will take pride of place in the garden. More information on submitting an expression of interest can be found at www.cultureliverpool.co.uk/harrison

Olivia Harrison, George’s wife, said: “‘George was an avid gardener who found solace and joy in being in the outdoors. I don’t think there is any better way to commemorate him in Liverpool than with a garden which can become a place of tranquillity and reflection for everyone. I am really looking forward to watching it change and grow over the coming years.”
